Summer Sampler 2016 - Ombre Cross

Jul 25, 2016

This summer is flying by!  We are already on the back half of the Summer Sampler 2016 and today brings my second block designed for the series.  And by "we", I mean all of you who are keeping up. I am a teensy bit behind.  I've only worked through Block 4.... but I plan to catch up soon!

The Ombre Cross is a variation on a basic nine-patch cross.  I love that the cross portion was broken down into rectangles and can be made into a trendy ombre strip set.  The center includes some fun piecework to make the cross look intricate.  The sorbet colors I chose from scraps make this block look so yummy.  It's perfect for a summer sunset.  I hope you enjoy!

Workshop progress....

Heellllllloooo!  It's been a while!  Although it's quiet here on the blog, rest assured I am super busy behind the scenes.  A little too busy, considering I'm manning the summertime school's out crew as well.  It's all popsicles, fighting, legos, fighting, pool, fighting, sand castles..... you get the point.

Anyway, I picked up the two samples I made for the new workshop I have developed based on both Patchwork Auditions and my book, Sister Sampler Quilts.  Look at how it came out!!!!  This was a new to me pattern I requested from my long arm quilter.  I am in love with the linear circles.  It was a perfect choice for these quilts.

I'll give you the full scoop on the Workshop when I've bound both the samples.  Hope you are enjoying your summer!

Stars & Stripes with a Piccolo Confession

Jul 4, 2016

I can hear the piccolo playing in Stars & Stripes Forever just looking at these blocks.  I used to play the flute as a kid and we all took turns on piccolo when it was time to play this song.  It was fun music, but that thing was so dang tiny.  Thank goodness I didn't have to play that all the time.  It used to hurt your ears if the person to your left was playing it.  How about that flashback?  It's not even Friday!  Ahhh, those band days.... ;)

Happy 4th everyone!  It's time for our family vacation, so I'll be a little sparse here until next week.  Enjoy the holiday folks!
