little workshop

Three things to be happy about:
(1) peach turnovers
(2) summer nightgowns
(3) blueberry buckle

What's blueberry buckle??  Don't worry, be happy!

I've never had peach turnovers but the peaches I got at Butler's Orchard the other day?  They're so good, I doubt there'd be any left for turnovers!

Thanks everybody for your comments, I love hearing from you.  :o)

Does the cobblestone quilt at the left look familiar?  It should! 

This is actually a re-bordered version of the one I posted  at the end of June, here.  I really hated that blue I used because it made the second block from the left seem to bleed into the border and I knew I couldn't talk myself into being happy with it.  So, I changed it to the purple you see at the left.  Big improvement!

At our Wee Bee last Saturday I did a little workshop on that style and it was very well received.  I believe the part that really impressed everybody was how quickly the blocks went together, and everyone who participated really liked the technique.  There were some great combinations for the quilts:  black and white, batiks, tie-dyed, sherbet...

I used Christmas theme fabrics for the one I demo'd in the meeting, and made 12 of the 16 blocks before we left...

I really want to show you this version of the Wickedly Easy quilt that Gwen made for her brother:

isn't it gorgeous!? 

And Felicia showed us her bow tuck bag; it's even cuter in real life!

Well, that's all for now, sew forth and sew on til later!


  1. I like your start on that Christmas Quilt.

  2. Our blueberries have come/gone - but yes, yummo for buckle. Love your group bees, everyone looks like they are having so much fun.

  3. I'm with you on your three likes. :-)
    Life here in the Pacific Northwest is berry-licious. We still have blueberries and they are dee-lish!
