My quilts at the Quilt Guild of Greater Houston Show-2017

I am humble for the ribbons on my quilts. This was an amazing show with very talented quilters. I had only an hour to be there, since I was leaving for 5 weeks. I apologize for not having more photos. But you can go to the web site to see the wonderful show.

New Bella Solids BOM

 This is a new sew along that starts today February 1st, 2017. The patterns will be published on the first day of the month, and it will run all the way to November 2017.
Did I mention it is free? It is very generous of them.
It should be a very fun sampler to make and a skill builder for sure.
So, follow the link below to see the quilt; and also to learn how to get your own patterns downloaded.
Cheers.

En Provence finished top

En Provence inspired wall hanging
This is my "En Provence" inspired quilt top wall hanging. It is a 27 inches square. 
I will use the large dots fabric for binding.  Bonnie Hunter is the designer of the original quilt; and she generously shared it for free as a mystery quilt. 
I started making 1/3 of the required amount of pieces before I decided that what I really wanted was a wall hanging quilt. So, I will be using the extra pieces to make a donation quilt for my guild. I have modified the design for these blocks. It will be a little bigger than the picture below; but that is all I have done for now.
I really had fun making creating new blocks from the parts already made.



Extra blocks to go on a donation quilt.

After several days with the flu, I did spend the afternoon sewing in my studio.  Just before, it was time to clean up and prepare dinner, I took this untouched photos. En Provence, parts 3-5; and more parallelograms prepared for the Lucy Library quilt for the evening sewing.
