Almost a week...

Wow, my apologies for neglecting all my blogger fans. I've been posting away on Facebook and not here -- so here's my week in review:

Well, I spent a lot of time working on Sheila's bargello, which is an awesome quilt. The pattern is "Diamonds Jubilee" by Nancy A. Smith (QuiltnNana Creations). This was a recent class held at the JaM Patch(http://jampatch.blogspot.com/ or http://jampatch.com/). I'm sure we'll be seeing a few more of these awesome quilts once some of the others start to finish (haha, strange play on words) their piecing. I already have a few "hold" spots on my schedule.


Okay, Sheila's quilt leads us into the weekend. I just loved her quilt SO MUCH, I had to grab the fabrics for one for myself. Here is a picture of two hours worth of therapy at the JaM Patch...

for those that don't know me well... I have a problem with brown and green. So some of you were worried when I had picked out this border fabric a week or so back. I really don't feel it is much of a problem (hehehe) -- it just matches my decor. Perhaps I like these colors??? I am a true "earth" -- dirt and grass! Anyway, I think the quilt is going to be more blue than brown and green. BUT, the fun part of bargello quilts is that you really don't know how it is going to look until all the pieces are cut and sewn and you see the magical transformation happen.

Okay, last but definitely not least, is Patti's quilt -- so cute! So much color going on and loads of applique. This quilt has received loads of comments on facebook -- check it out! I do not know the name of the pattern, but have been informed that it is a Fassett pattern, feel free to comment with more info!

  1. The pattern is a Kim McLean applique pattern from Kaffe Fasset's book Quilt Romance. Kim McLean has a few more truly awesome applique patterns out. I can't wait to try another one!
