Rainbow, or, All Colors Are Beautiful

This quilt started from digging through the scrap bin, 
separating according to color. 
Pretty soon, I realized I had quite the rainbow going on!
Won't be long before the remaining white trim is put on, layering,
quilt or tie?
Ready for a precious baby.

Mitering the corners of the Black and White quilt

Mitering corners takes extra time, and effort,
but they look so nice and finished where they're done.

Baby Loves his quilt!

All the late nights, all the fingersticks,
all the ironing....
this smile right here makes it
all worth while.
Look at that smile!!!
From the stash of scraps, for someone who
has a best friend with a new baby in a very
scary time for the world.
New life, new hope, new quilt.

Block Of The Day

In March, I was bored. I didn't have an order, but I wanted to play with my fabrics, and patterns kept appearing in my mind, sometimes at the most inapropriate times! Driving, showering, work meetings.... I had to get them out of my mind, and down in fabric.

So I took out the fabric, and got to work. 

This one is beaded, appliqued, on dark blue satin.

This one reminds me of the paintings of
Mark Rothko.

Cabin in the woods.


This one is like 4 little change purses.

Some of them have velvet.

This one has a blue bead added in the center of each medallion.

After 90 blocks are made, I decide to give them window panes. 
Like this. 

Next, laying them all out, and putting them all together into a coherent whole. 

And the quilting begins.
