In The Studio and On My Lap

Here’s the latest work being done in the studio–

I made the giant nine patch quilt top into a sandwich. First I made a pieced back for it. I’ll have to show you that after the quilting is finished.

And I started working on the little snowball quilt idea I had. You can see that most of the blocks are 3 inch finished blocks. Then I made six, nine, twelve, and fifteen inch blocks to insert into the quilt. I thought of a lot of different ways to do this, but I ended up using the original little sketch I had drawn in my journal. I love having my little journal with me!

I still have a lot of the 3 1/2 inch squares that I pre-cut for this quilt. I have another little idea in the works for them.

In the evenings, I usually move into the living room and have some handwork in progress.

I’m working on another of  The Psalms quilts. Here you can see I machine stitched in the ditch to stabilize the background. But then I decided to do kantha style stitching over the entire background.

Well, you know all about my circle love 🙂

And I finished the rug made from fabric strips. These rugs are so cushy to stand on. I really like having them in the kitchen, and they wash very easily too.

After being washed:

Its just right in front of the stove. And the little girls like to lay on them when they are waiting for me to make their meals!

  1. Oh that rug is perfection! It looks so comfy and homey – and I love that the pups take ownership of it at times, too.

    The snowball quilt – how fun! Love your colors, love how you’ve turned squares into octagons, love how the solid colors flow and pop!

    And your kantha stitching…well, you know I adore that. 🙂
