This week's News!

I'm linking again with my Quiltsy team's Works In Progress blog. 

Here's the latest! 

This is Summer Festival, my second Quilt In A Day Zig A Zag quilt.  The colors are so much prettier in person.  It's all done and listed in my Etsy shop. I played with the quilting on this, a scroll and hook design, plus feathers in the outer borders. 

This is a better picture of the colors.  The fabric collection is called Pretty Sweet, by Island Batiks.  The borders are from Timeless Treasures. 

The newest Quilt In A Day pattern arrived last week, and the Webinar on Tuesday was fun to watch.  This is called Piece Of Cake, and it's made with 10" squares, which are also called Layer Cakes (the designer groups and collections of precuts have food names.)  I picked 9 fabrics out of my collection, and made my own Layer Cake.  I just think it's beautiful.  The top is ready, and I'll get it layered Thursday, and quilting will begin soon.  Look for this in my store, as well! 

I think I need to do some table runners and toppers next.  I'm in the mood for some smaller items, and maybe an apron or 3. 

I also did some alterations for the Lehigh Valley School for the Performing arts, and will be making bolero jackets for their show in May.  Picutres of them to come!  Thanks for visiting!
