got my cheater card ready... just in case i get stuck while i'm moving along these wonky log cabin blocks! but, please know... i'm not sweating over any of these... the reality of this style of block is, that you can go off preferred color palette and they will still look fabulously funky!!... so, no whambulances, k! here's my first six blocks... four of them still need quilting though... but, i'm more than excited about all the possibilities... here's two blogs that have been showing some crazy examples!... a few scraps and 365 Days of Free Motion Quilting Filler Designs !! have fun checking these kids out! :) and for all those interested... this is what the back of my quilted blocks looked like... however, no one will ever see them once the quilt is finished!! ;) and holey shiz! check out what came in the mail today from one of my sweetest online lOVES... miss Nova!! this crazy cat loves to quilt so much she made me my Single Girl quilt top out of yummy Anna Maria Horner fabrics and my favorite Kona... Medium Grey!! it's going straight out to the quilters... so, this is the only sneeky peeky for you until she is home and binded! :) isn't miss Nova the BEST!! a few little stash builders came this week too! i lOVE coordinating prints... and these were screaming my name!!... heather... heather... buy me... your husband will never know... promise... hehe.... okay... time to sew... hope you all have a fab weekend!!! XO, Heather PS... yes.. i added some more music!! enjoy those Beastie Boys!

  7. OMG!! That fabric collection! What a great space. Def gotta check out that free-motion blog. And that new fabric - where did you get that? It is apparently also screaming Caroline you must buy me your husband will never know (well maybe unless he gets the mail that day, then you are screwed).

  8. Those are some gorgeous fabrics. I'm seriously drooling on my screen. Just curious, how much do you buy when you are stash building? I haven't bought anything yet that wasn't for a specific project.

  9. Argyle. Yes!! Is that newsprint fabric by Sweetwater? If it is, I'm sure having a hard time finding any...

    *sigh*

    The blocks are awesome!

  10. I've only been following for a short time, but I just LOVE the music. On most other blogs its a mad rush to find the player and kill it- but yours, I just love.

  24. Ok. I have a question. I am really wanting to do some sort of quilt as I go. I have block made up but am not sure where to go from there. Do I quilt the batting and backing? Do I just quilt the batting? If I do just the batting w/the block how will I then do the backing later to attach it? Confused........Can you Please, Please, Please help me out. I have been working on this quilt since late last year and I want it DONE!! :0)

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

  28. I am amazed by your Stash! I have the same question as Becky...how much do you buy at a time to build your stash up. I am just starting out and want to build up a stash.

  29. Thanks for showing the back of the blocks, but how do you connect them and then quilt the final product?
    Thanks,
    Jen

  30. Just a quick thank you for linking to A Few Scraps and 365 DOFM... wow I needed a few reminders on several how to's. Oh and I have serious Girl Friday fabric envy (online?)

    ReplyDelete
  31. OMG, I thought I had too many fabrics and they do not even come to a quarter - not not even an eigth of what you have. All my fabric fits into (with room for more) two fabric Safeway shopping bags.
    I am in total fabric envy right now! I dream of a space and of a stash like yours..... someday!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, you are making me jealous with your bright sunny workspace and your new stash additions. I have already proclaimed my love for the Girl Friday prints and the... is that wheels brown plaid? But the newsprint and the argyles - be still my heart, I think it is a-leaping out of my chest. (Yeah, I'm exaggerating, but not by much. Argyle is my favorite color.)

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOL! I want to come see your creative space! My fabric collection could fit on one of your shelves! Maybe two at the most! I want to sit under your cutting table and scavenge for scraps :D -- and, of course, listen to you talk, you sassy thing you.
