Sugar Sack Quilts

I won a give-a-way from Glenna Hailey at Hollyhock Quilts! It actually arrived at the end of last week, but my DD#2(a high school senior) had my camera all week for end of season soccer games and prom. This is a lovely book full of wonderful projects that have me itching to be stitching! I photographed it with my one authentic feedsack, and two packages of cotton rickrack that originally sold for 13 cents a piece. My two favorite patterns from the book are Stripping in the Garden and Hearts and Flowers, okay, my three favorites, because I love the Sail Away quilt too! DD#2 really likes the Happy Scraps quilt, I've pulled out my 30's reproduction fabrics to figure out a plan! Thanks so much Glenna, I am really enjoying this book!

Design Wall Monday

This little quiltlet is a Schnibble pattern called Mon Ami. I wanted it to be low contrast, but I think it turned out no contrast! I've had this fabric in my stash for a while, its called Winsome, by Nancy Halverson. I am going to use the small check as the backing, and bind it with the small dots. I want to do some simple hand quilting and have it ready to use by Easter. Go by Judy L.'s blog and look at all the other design walls - you are sure to be inspired!

Brown monochromatic blocks

I am a few days late in posting these, but I have had them done since last week. Check out Judy L.'s blog for more monochromatic inspiration. I love the way all of these 6" blocks are turning out - I think when I put them together at the end of the year they will look awesome! Now if I could only make the same progress on my UFO list...
