Work in progress

I haven't been doing much sewing lately, but I did just start working on my 4th Lotus quilt. The fabric is called Piper and is a new line that Dear Stella just announced today. It'll be available in February. 

I have the first row done & almost all the blocks for the other rows made.

Here is a digital version of the quilt

I'm excited about how it is all coming together!

The fabrics are very saturated and pack a punch. 

 I chose to use the chunky strip as a bias binding and this big purple print for my backing.

I'll share more photos as soon as I get it finished!

  9. I love this quilt made up this way. Going to be spectacular as always. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us.

  10. This is so interesting! Thanks for sharing and the nice photography. You might enjoy my quilt with vintage hankies, just go to the search box on "Quilted Nights..."

    Keep up the lovely work! Thank you for sharing...

  11. and p.s. about your post on Cancer, I so agree with what it can't do! I'm at St Jude as a volunteer and have post on that as well. What a place to help children!

  12. I have looked all over to buy this pattern. Do you not sell it or something?

  13. Very pretty! I got the Lotus pattern from my local shop and am working on quilting it now. I used red, black, orange and yellow batiks and love how it came out.

  14. This pattern is lovely! What is the light colored solid you've used?


I love comments!
