Laying Out the Squares




I got my fabric cut into strips, and all the blocks sewn up, and here they are laid out on the floor to be sewn together.

Clara and I got the top pieced on Saturday, and now the ball is in her court to add some embroidery--this will be a wedding gift for a friend of hers.

It's going to be Rose Window.

Your quilts are always so beautiful. The choice of colours is often unexpected, but they always go together really great. Do you only make log cabin quilts?

Oh, I must have one of your quilts one of these days. Still grieving for the Japanese Maple one that got away ...

Ooooh, that will be a lovely wedding gift! I want to be one of your kids' friends, getting married or having babies, and hitting the quilt jackpot! I love the way you two work together on these projects, too. Wonderful memories and beautiful results.

Hi Anna
When you embroider a quote on your quilts, how many strands of cotton do you use and what stitch do you use?

Gail said...

Very beautiful! 💕 You and Clara amaze me!!!!

Absolutely gorgeous.

Boneta said...

Such a cheerful color combination! I love it :-)

Judy said...

A striking colour combination and, as always, quick work!

Anna are you still thrift store shopping for your quilt fabrics? I know your stash must be low after all the lovely things you have made.

Hilde, we mostly make log cabins. They're the perfect balance of planning and spontaneity, and randomness and repetition.

Conie, we are embroidering with three strands of embroidery floss, and using a very tiny stem stitch.

Candace, I did have to stop by the thrift store for two blue shirts to finish this one out. As usual, the men's shirt rack was the perfect place to spend $.50 and piece out the project!

Thanks everyone for the love :)
