Lily quilt top is done

July 11, 2016 in GARDENING, QUILTING

YAHOO ! – my ‘Lily’ quilt top is done. I love the simplicity of the block and think I might have to try it again with different fabrics.

Lily 58×74

Except for the corners of the blocks and the border section, it is made using only 2-1/2″ strips. You could easily do this with a jelly roll and yardage for the background.

Of course, no post is complete unless I add a couple of photos from the garden. I have had the ‘endless summer’ hydrangea plant for many years. This is the first year that I have gotten more than one of those beautiful, delicate blooms.

Here is some of my red asiatic lilies.

The coneflowers and day lilies are starting to bloom. I will have to get my camera out and takes some photos. How are you coming along with your quilt projects?

Blocks for Lily

March 24, 2016 in QUILTING

Haven’t sewn the rows together but wanted to show you what the block looks like for my ‘Lily Ashbury’ fabric collection (green, yellow, orange and pink prints). I really like how this is turning out. Since I am SOOOO creative when it comes to naming my quilts, I decided that the name of this one would be ‘Lily’. I know….very original.

Two projects

March 7, 2016 in QUILTING

Two projects – one WIP and one new

Solids Back last summer I had made bunches of small square in a square blocks but couldn’t figure out how I wanted to use them. They went into a box waiting for inspiration. Couple of months ago I came up with the idea to maybe add some rectangles to the mix. That worked. As you can see, I am using solids in various shades of teal, beige to brown, purple and a little red/rust for accent. Here are some of the blocks on my design wall. I like where this is heading.

Lily Here is a sample of the fabrics in a fat quarter collection by Lily Ashbury that I purchased ages ago. These bold and colorful fabrics are going into my next quilt. I have the design worked out and sewing up a storm to get all of the blocks made.
