Quilty Things Going On and More Yard

These are pictures of some of the lilies blooming this week. The red ones called Red Volunteers seem to be in every bed, lol, I think they are living up to their name. They sure do mulitply fast.




This is block 1 of the Designer BOM from The Fat Quarter Shop. Of course I cut the background wrong and had to substitute, lol, I guess that is why I have a stash, huh. I got the finishing kit with the first block and this is going to be a very pretty quilt when it is done!



Making progress on the Piece and Plenty. I am loving this quilt, but goodness, there are a lot of hours in it. These are blocks 9 and 10. For some reason I have skipped 8, so I am working on that one now.


I finally got the 12 main blocks finished for the Web Sampler. Now to start on the house for the middle of it.



The latest batiks to enter the house, lol.


I am starting a new quilt soon that will be using batiks and I had them scattered everywhere so I decided I would see if I could sort them out. Ha! You see how far I got, but at least they are out of my closet and on a table so I can see what I have. And, I have too many, so I am not going to buy any more, lol.

HI Perry,
The quilt is gorgeous on your previous post and I loved your boxes of batiks. I love batiks too because they often have such rich colors and the patterns are always so interesting. I have a nice collection too and have a hard time figuring out what to make with them. They are so pretty that I hate to cut them up ...But who can resist those beautiful batiks...
Glad to see you are recovering from the eye surgery- I am sure you will be busy making some new beautiful quilts. I will look forward to seeing your newest creations. Whatever you make is always beautiful!!!
School is finished next week and I am looking forward to some down time and some good quilting time.
Regards,
Anna

I'll share some batik FQs if I can have dibs on your batik scraps. I can use anything 1 1/2" or lg-er. :) Let me know and I'll bring them to guild on Thurs.

Libby said...

Do you mean to say that you are supposed to use the fabric they send you? I always goof something and have to substitute. I thought that was the rule *s*

Kimberly Jolly said...

Hi Perry
OK you have way too many batiks. Can I have some lol

Ginger Patches said...

Wow, you have definitely gotten back into the swing, huh? That is happy news :) Your BOM's are all looking beautiful!! Any hints on how to avoid making that cutting mistake on the FQS mystery block? I'm going to work on mine later this week and I'm notorious for messing up on projects where there's no extra fabric lol!!!

Your new batiks are gorgeous!! Can't wait to see what you're gonna do with them :)

All your projects look just wonderful, Perry. I love looking at the Web Sampler blocks all together!

You have been one busy lady. Piece and Plenty is coming along very nicely. I don't have that pattern set but it is tempting. I have enjoyed seeing what you are working on.
