Quilty Things

There is no hope for me. The only way I keep from buying quilting related items is to not go in a quilt store and not look at the online newsletters. I just don't seem to have any willpower.

Quiltworks had a weeklong sale on their reproduction fabrics and I just couldn't pass these up. Neutrals are always good and I love the floral.
I don't think I ever showed this. It is a neat table topper I think. It comes from Pieced Tree Patterns . They have some really good small patterns with good instructions.

I finally went to the Central Oklahoma Quilt Guild this month. This was one of the quilts shown. I like the does remind me of the Diamond in the Rough I am doing. Not sure it is the same pattern, but pretty close.

This is a gorgeous quilt. Not a good picture, but you can see it in person at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this fall. It has been accepted for show.

This beauty came from Thimble Creek. It is made with Fig Tree's Patisserie and I haven't seen this kit anywhere else. Really pretty.

If you like blended quilts, and I really do, the place online to find them in kit form is Piece Keepers. The owner's name is Susan Branch and she only vendors at quit shows, and occasionally come to the OKC guild meeting with her merchandise. This is some of the fabric I picked up from her at the guild meeting. First time she has been there in a couple of years. I just love the large roses piece. It looks like tapestry and I seem to be into that at the moment. Also the other pieces are from Quilt Gate. They feel like lawn.
Susan puts together kits from the "In The Beginning" blended quilt books and I just couldn't resist buying this one. It called my name.

Look at this border fabric. It is yummy.

And last, but not least, this wool table topper from Bird Brain Designs. I will get this done eventually I think. It is so cute.

I've made that blended quilt from Piece Keepers, but with different fabrics. It's one of my favorites. I love the fabric you've got too. I have to stay home and off of the computer when I'm in the mood to shop. It's kind of a sickness, I

You've been busy! I love that blended quilt kit and can't wait so see it. It's hopeless, I know, but stay out of shops and on-line and you'll be OK. :) Nancy in WI
