Blocks and Squares

Thanks everyone for your tips and suggestions on photo mattes and stenciling. It is absolutely amazing how much knowledge we collectively have. I am very close to being done my Drunk Love in a Log Cabin Quilt that is based off of Denyse Schmidt's work. Here are a few more blocks.

I know it doesn't look like much now, but when they are all laid out together it is very exciting.

This next weekend I am going to skip the mountain bike race I was considering. It is fairly far away and takes up one whole day. This way, I will have more time to train for the next one, study, and maybe finish this quilt up. Good thing because I already have another one I am planning.

I think I may have already shown this fabric before, but I find myself staring at it frequently.

I have found some amazing fabric printing blogs out there lately. I have been haunting them looking for tips and other ideas. I also picked up a silk screen and silk screening paints at a yard sale last weekend and cannot wait to try it.

Oh, puh-lease. We've seen your stuff. We know it will come together beautifully.

Love the vintage fabric with the birds. What will you do with it?!

These blocks are great. Is most of this fabric vintage? I scored a find today, but I wondered how it holds up? Since you're the vintage queen (or princess if you prefer) I thought you might have some wisdom. Looking forward to seeing the whole quilt!

I agree with everyone else. I too can't wait to see the finished product.

Great squares! Silkscreening is so neat. Can't wait to see your experiments.
