Happy New Year...mid-way thru January 2016

This Calico Quilter does quilting, sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, some
rigid heddle weaving...so on and so on.  My cupboards are stuffed full of yarn, fabric, bits and pieces, notions and tools in support of these many hobbies of mine.  It's the beginning of a New Year (2016), and I am piecing together quilt blocks that have been on the back burner for a while now. Here's a snap of my quilt wall and what I'm working on this week. The Hawai'i-style Sunbonnet Sues are truly adorable; each finished block will measure 9 inches.  Those magenta pink prints have been jumping out at me whenever I'd peek in the cupboard; thus, it's time to make this quilt and be done. The smaller blocks in the photo, are part of my Mrs. Lincoln's Sampler Quilt (design by Lori Smith). There's joy that goes into the making, especially since hand applique is by far, one of my favorite pastimes.  Each block measures 6 inches.

  1. I love your quilt wall! There's so much pink there!

    1. I look at all that pink and am thinking about how I'm going to frame those blocks. Me o' my oh!
