Crop Circles

Look what I’ve got on my design wall…..my newest log cabin blocks!

DWM 6-8-15And they’ve turned out very close to my vision of subtle circles with dominate “pluses” in the center.  And it’s name, as Julie says, has revealed itself.  Meet Crop Circles.  Linking up with Judy’s DWM post here

And look, look, look what I received this in the mail!!!!!

Ami FabricYou know it’s spring with Ami dyes Traveling Panties 😉  Speaking of spring, the day we hung a fern on our front porch, a house finch started building a nest.  Here are her four babies just before they’re ready to leave the nest.

Cool Monday

It’s turned a bit cooler and it’s oh, so comfortable.  I went to our scrap quilting club sewing day Saturday and had such a good time.  I hadn’t been able to make it in awhile and it was good to catch up with everyone. 

I sewed on my May RSC blocks finishing them up and sewed the second to last round of logs on my log cabin blocks.  I have one complete block done and on my design wall 🙂  Click over to Judy’s DWM post for links to lots of quilty fun.

DWM 6-1-15I think the log cabin blocks will be okay…..but I won’t know until I get some more done.

Shirting Log Cabin

I selected my light blue fabrics for the June RSC challenge blocks and sent them through my Studio cutter.  I’ve got them all pinned and ready sew leader/ender style.

Lt blue Half SqsI won a pack of 5″ squares at scrap club, Figures 🙂

FiguresI’ll have to sort through them as I might not want to just throw them in with all my scraps.  I might make some half square triangles and see where that leads……

Spring Has Sprung

There’s a robin nesting on our drain pipe, a bunny nesting in our side yard and our dogwood is in bloom.  Yep, spring has definitely arrived 🙂

This week I head to Paducah with Jan, The Colorful Fabriholic, for the AQS show where we’ll meet up with a couple other friends (hi Jeanne & Margaret) and have loads of FUN!  I’m hoping to run into Kevin of Kevin the Quilter when visiting his quilt, RADAR.

For DWM, I’ve got something NEW!  Check out the blocks I’m working on using a Laurel Birch fabric. 

DWM 4-20-15Laurel Birch QuiltI sure love my Studio Cutter…..I cut triangles for this quilt out in no time……ironing the fabrics took more time than cutting!

I also turned this:
