Apron Quilt Goodness….

I posted about this sweet apron pattern AGES AGO –

I believe at the time I did say it sewed up a lot nicer than the cover pattern -well just look at what some of the block’s the were referenced here.

There are more than these 2 posted – have a look:)

These are the foundation piecing patterns from MH designs – not as in love with them as I once was… but alas, into the stash….

Apron Quilt

OK- if I hadn’t seen the sample of this quilt in all it’s cute glory – I never would have purchased the pattern – but it sews up SO NICELY!! They just should have maybe spent a little more on photography – no?

This quilt from the Acorn Quilt Company is really cool! I love the way the blocks are set diagonally (rather than ‘on point) and the sashing in the middle – super cute! And you know I will be using some wool!

Shownotes for Episode 5

The latest podcast is now available – and of course, the requisite
show notes are below!  I talked about a lot of different items in this
episode and will try to provide either photos or links to everything!

First off – the BEST $ store in the world – Ichiban Kan – ‘different things’ – check out the blog listing – here! that is really a great description with some great pics.

Show5_01Here are some of my Japan town purchases!

On the left are the cute little baby pins (that will not actually be used on any of my babies…) and on the right are those weird little tooth things.
This is the little organizer that is likely for a couch – but works great on my awesome table.

The Japanese Applique book with Show5_06a few pages examples. Sorry these photos aren’t the greatest – I was fighting against the clock of a dying camera battery…


Show5_09_2Show5_10_2The camera did die – so no photos yet of the third book 😦  And just to
let you know – I started this posting at 8am and it is now 3pm  between
all of the normal, daily interruptions, it appears that I need to
schedule a full day when putting up a podcast!

Below are the Fig Tree Quilt book (BOM that I’m doing) that I spoke of briefly as well as Gina’s quilt.

Faded Homesteads on the Prairie

Tree Quilts has designed this enchanting quilt inspired by an antique
quilt block. Finishing at 86” x 86”, we thought this would be perfect
for a new monthly program featuring a combination of Fig Tree fabrics
& Lecien Japanese prints in the colors shown.
