Road to California Show

So this is the damage this year from my trip to the Road to California show....not bad. I showed incredible restraint. Since Judie Rothermel wasn't there I was able to keep it under control and bring $ home. Wow! All fabrics for my scrappy usual I was like a kid in a candyshop and nearly skipped with glee down the aisles. Now I am all fired up to begin!


This is what is up on my design wall. The block on the right is 14". This is the first of 35 blocks that will be made into a bed quilt. It will take awhile as the pieces are small. I am waiting on yardage for the light squares and yardage on the brown setting squares to arrive. In the mean time,I started playing with the pieces I have cut out for the 4 patch. I rather like the way the simple little rail fence design looks as well. Each square finishes at 2". Both of these will be great ways to create the civil war scrappy quilts I love so much. I have decided that I not only like scrappy...but small as well. Love the way these small blocks of color look.

Civil War Table Runner

Hot off the press and ready for quilting...this is a table runner. I worked entirely out of my scrap bin for this one-except for the borders. The 4 patches are made from 1 1/4" squares. I plan to hand quilt this and keep it for MYSELF! LOL
