Inspired by Granddaughter's drawing

Posted by on 18 July 2018 | 0 Comments


With school break upon us, it is only natural that I spend more time with my granddaughters. Both my girls love to draw like many children their age. Being only 2 years old, Isabella generally likes me to draw for her and one of her favorite things for me to draw is flowers. We draw big ones, little ones, some to the right, some to the left, and various colored ones.

Sue's Flower

Posted by on 11 July 2018 | 0 Comments

What's under my needle this week? Well, I've been working on my Bargello so not much to show you so I thought I'd share Sue's beautiful flower block instead. If you remember back in April I asked for flower requests to make a new flower block. There were many suggested and King Protea was selected. Sue received a free copy of the pattern and this week she sent me a photo of her finished block.

Geraldine WarnerDandelion abstract artElizabeth Barton, a well-known quilt artist has a number of very interesting and productive online workshops. There is always a multitude of stunning quilts made from her students - and here is just one made by Geraldine in her workshop More Abstract Art For Quiltmakers..... what amazes me is watching the students, from their first design to their last - the results are amazing!

This week I have been working on a new Bargello design and although I cannot show you the full design, I can certainly give you a sneak preview. Like many of my other Bargellos this design is very unique.
