One Quilt Leads to Another and Another...

I'm working on a Bonnie Hunter quilt called Pfeffernusse, and I got to thinking about how I got here.

Last year, Bonnie Hunter's mystery was called Allietare. For that quilt, I pulled out red, gold, and neutral fabrics.

Fabrics for Allietare

As I was working on Allietare, I thought about the fact that I wanted to do Jamestown Landing (also from Bonnie Hunter) in red and neutral, so while I had the fabrics out, I started that quilt.

I also wanted to make an Old Tobacco Road quilt (yet another Bonnie Hunter design). I used the already collected golds for that one.

Old Tobacco Road takes lots of browns, so as I was cutting them, I cut extra brown strings. I used some of them in the Old Tobacco Road border, but I had lots left over. Pfeffernusse takes brown string blocks, so it seemed natural to start that one.

I've got all the blocks made, and I'm starting to assemble it. As usual, I made extra blocks--in this case, quarter square triangles (QSTs).


I'm thinking that these extra blocks may lead to an Ohio Star quilt...

It's That Time Again!

I love my job, but...

Best wishes to students and teachers beginning the new year.

Working in Secret

It seems everything I'm working on right now is to be a gift, so I don't have pictures to show! I've got three tops almost completed, but with school starting soon, I'm not sure how soon I can get them quilted. Where did the summer go?
