Yo-Yo Along

getting ready for a mostly-hand-sew-project. the painter's tape box bottom is my template for tracing circles. my theme is white backgrounds. and one block or 16 yo-yo's a week. Penny will be making 7.5 per day. that's very funny. she will of course finish before me. for more details visit Penny on Sew Take A Hike blog.

synchronized squares quilt along : preparing.

all week i was walking around saying "you don't need to do this one". really. but i liked where it was going. easy and scruffy. just one obstacle. could not be new fabric. so i found. in my stash. 9 light-ish florals. picked another for binding. and some background. Southern Belle. a 200 ct. muslin. for more details on this quilt along see Rachel on p.s. i quilt blog.

Simple Things Quilt Along

i just thought i would let you know i am doing this. the little one. of course. i had to send away for a print in black to match some prints i have in other colors. so the stitching and star points and binding will be black. i think.for more details visit Kelly on Charming Chatter blog or Carol on Brown Quilts blog. Kelly has already posted the cutting directions for the little one and Carol for the bigger one. i participated in Kelly's Half-Pint Quilt Along and finished the top but did not put it together. i remember wanting the perfect backing which i eventually found. maybe i will be inspired along the way to get that done.

Basic Ease

The Quilting Book Club. Quilt 1. this is Basic Ease. from Modern Basics. by Amy Ellis. each month Shawna of 1 Choice 4 Quilting and Melanie of Above All Fabric will have kits and offer discounts. i already had these 3 prints. Blossomwood from Legacy Studio fabrics. found at JoAnn's. many times they caught my eye and when i noticed the yardage dwindling i coupon'd what was left hoping i would eventually decide on a pattern. the binding is from Lily & Will. next up is the cover quilt Posie Patch. i won't be back until it's finished. but i'll be adding assignments to my Flickr set.
