Just checked the new Hoffman Challenge , I’m not sure whether I like this fabric. As usual, lots of pink! I don’t like pink, that alone makes it into a challenge for me. Maybe there is something more I can do about the blues. For sure, I’ve to see the fabric in real, and I’m almost […]

Two days of work. Still not even the blocks finished. One-hundred of them, 2 1/2 inches finished. Curved piecing in miniature. It seems to take for ever.  The whole quilt won’t exeed 25 x 25 inches, that’s my goal. All fabric is small scraps which most people throw away. Well, not in my house, it’s lingering […]

Be a Girl

In cleaning up my sewing studio, I regularly find “Orphan Blocks”, usually test blocks or sometimes people give me leftover blocks “you’ll make something great out of it”,, Yeah, well. Curse or blessing? If it becomes a charity quilt, definitely a blessing! Ten orphan blocks with pink centers (I don’t even like pink) mixed up […]
