Just spent an hour cleaning up Easter Decorations...Photo above is "Post Easter"
The bunny basket is full of Wheat grass..home grown Easter grass that O (granddaughter) likes to trim. Will be with us until one of us over waters it! (FYI..I have a reputation for killing houseplants)
... people often ask me what style quilts I like to make....And, after making all kinds of quilts in the last 20 years...Here it is.. I like traditional patterns made with current fabrics..
What does that mean?
This is my current applique project.. I have 6 blocks complete .
This is block 7...not quite finished..
The patterns are from a favorite primitive quilt design team...Blackbird Designs.
The fabrics are from Kaffe Fassett a contemporary fabric designer.
Dresden Plate, a popular design with American quilters beginning in the 1920's....
Photo is from a finished (yes..binding and everything!) quilt I made using Amy Butler (another contemporary fabric designer) prints..
Dresden was machine quilted by Kim Lathrop of Grapevine Quilting in Williamstown, NJ
