I don't know what "stunt quilting" is -- but I'm loving the name! I am working on wonky log cabins (but taking a break for a day or two waiting for more fabric to arrive -- I <3 etsy!), also starting Sue Ross BOM with Material Obsession, working on a list of other WIPs and UFOs. I tend to avoid making quilt backs because I just don't seem to work well with large quantities of fabric. Hmmm. I should start thinking about pieced backs....
Looking forward to seeing what you are working on.

Can't wait to see when it's done!

I'm working on a birthday gift (quick and easy) for this weekend and I've started on my Christmas "To do" list. No other projects will be started until the Christmas gifts are done.

My quilt shop had some Aster Manor charm squares in a while ago and I fell in love with it. Ever since then I have been trying to pick a pattern and waiting for more fabric of it to come. I am working on my swaps, Halloween, summer and bag. The end of September will be the end of swaps.

I love the reds in that collection! I'm working on a commissioned quilt for a friend's nephew and a couple table runners :)

Nice fall colors! I'm working on a half triangle quilt a la Red Pepper Quilts: http://www.redpepperquilts.com/2009/07/finished-quilt-hooray.html
I think I've still got a LOT of squares to make! Will hopefully post pics soon :-)
And have a commissioned baby quilt and should bag to start soon! Cheers!

That's what I need to do - stunt quilt for my tea table!

The question should be...what "all" are you working on!

Love the fabrics....and the sneak peak.

So really your more famous than any of us Moda people, cause your the first one on there, where I'm just second to last :). I LOVE Astor Manor, I can't wait to see what your making with it.

Jackie said...

Wow! I didn't think that I'd be a fan of Astor Manor, but it sure it pretty here! Thanks for showing it...and maybe enabling!

Kim said...

Verrry pretty! I'm looking forward to seeing what it will become!

Lovely colours.
I'm currently stalled at the play with fabric on the floor stage on my very first quilt for myself and on a cushion I am making for a friend at work.
I have trouble settling on a layout that I like.
