Slice and Dice, and Sew Fun

Made these three fun and fast blocks for Linda last night, for One Block Over.  Her inspiration FQ is at the top, we were to pick three scraps from our stash to use with the grey solid.  I think this took me about 45 minutes, including reading the directions.  She has a great tutorial over here.

Can’t wait to see her quilt!  In other news, I’ve done a LOT of sewing on a project I can only show you sneak peeks of… some drawing… some editing… some raw edge applique…


More to come in the next month–promise!

I don’t usually purchase pre-cuts, I’m more of a pick and choose which pieces of a collection I like kind of girl.  But with this new Hometown fabric, I could not resist:

Now to decide on a pattern or a design…

Our Steering Committee (Executive Board) for the Des Moines, Iowa, Modern Quilt Guild got together for dinner last night to go over our bylaws and finalize the draft that will be presented at our meeting next week.  If you are in the central Iowa area, join us Thursday, September 15th, at 6:30 p.m.–More details on our website: (or click on the link in my right sidebar!)  I best get busy and finish up my Habitat Challenge quilt!

and I’m helping Madame Samm with the new Ghastlies blog–exciting things to come with our Blog-Hop!!!  It plays right into my Halloween obsession and my October plans for this blog–

  1. Thanks for making such great-looking blocks for me. I can't wait to see my really neat quilt, either!

    That gray fabric in your raw edge applique? I just bought some. And the gray Hometown fabric? I just bought some of that too. I think I've officially arrived at “modern.” Love it!

  2. I'm playing along with that Ghastlies blog hop, too. Should be fun!

    I love what you did with those blocks. Very cool. And your little sneak peeks look totally fun! You are a busy girl!

  3. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I just came over for a look and LOVE those sneak peeks at your raw edge applique project. I have a similar project mulling around in my head and can't wait to see what you are doing.

Let me know what you have to say on the subject....
