3 Sassy Ladies

Posted by Picasa

well here they are all sewn time to audition some background fabric. Since it's hung on a curtain of muted blues, I'm thinking that something like this wouldn't work.

Yellow Lady Quilt Block

If you have been reading about the "crooked cabin quilts" book by Pat Sloan, then you may recognize what I'm doing here.
Of course she starts her blocks by surrounding the focus fabric with strings that she pieces together. My option was to get rid of all my tiny scraps & make my fabric, then add strips to reduce the seams. I then surround my focus fabric with the scrappy logs so-to-speak. This block has grown big enough for now, until I get the rest of them done. Then I will figure out whether she needs to be bigger or smaller & pick my border fabric. If you are making crooked cabin quilts, I would love to see your work, so leave me a comment please!

Getting Started

When I 1st started blogging, I really didn't know what the heck I was doing....go here to see my fiber postcard blog. Since then, I have kinda figured it out better??? Since then, I've got a multiply, and opened up an Etsy store. Now to see if the links I just added work!
Okay GREAT! So far, so to get my flickr photos to show up in the slideshow section???? Hmmm...that may take awhile.
