Some more Dreaming in French (Art Gallery Fabrics by Pat Bravo). This is a custom Etsy order for Terri. She's going to fold this in half and hang it over the foot of the bed; like what you see in a fancy hotel. I think that once it's quilted and washed this is going to be beautiful. It may even want to stay at my house.....

Pretty Wall Hanging!

While browsing through Flickr, I found  this I loved it so much and had this lonely dresden plate I made a while ago just waiting to be used, so here's my version.

I think it turned out very pretty, for now it's hanging on the wall in my sewing room.  

I have lots of other stuff I've been working on so I'll be back soon to share!

Modern BOM - Sew Along

I decided to follow along with the Modern BOM over at SewMamaSew , heres the link:

I like this block well enough on it's own, but I'm not too sure about a whole quilt of this pattern.  Maybe I will try a few other colors and add them all together.

I received my partner information in the "For the Love of Solids" swap.  I'm already stalking her; all I can say is that she seams to like a lot of color and I am feeling the pressure of making her something marvelous.  I want to go unique...different...but I want her to like it too!  Hhhhmmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,  I'll have to brainstorm some more.

Because I am apparently crazy, I've also joined the Nubees swap, I'm in hive #2.
AND, the 3x6 Bee, I'm in hive #13.

Wow, I have a lot of blocks to make.  That's okay, it's just the figuring out which blocks to make!

On the home front, 600 sf of flooring was installed today and I really should be mopping and things away right now.  It's been almost seven months of forced remodeling in the kitchen but now that it's done, it was well worth it!  My camera is dead at the moment but I will post some pictures soon.
