Quilting| Rohen's Quilt Progress


I made the black sheep for his sister now I am finishing up my nephew's "I'm a star" quilt.

I started these blocks back in August, It got put on the shelf because I tend to bounce around with my creative projects quite a bit. 

Now I have this stack of scraps to play with and combine the blocks. I can't wait to show you the finish!

Rug Hooking| Moog Pattern

Rug Hooking

I made my first pattern from a paper image. I taped the linen to the wall and projected the image for tracing the major elements. I haven't asked for permission to use it yet from the toy maker.... it is only for my use, but I will still ask since I am posting pictures online. …

Quilting| The Newest Quilt


This one is for all of the black sheep out there. It didn't start out that way; It started as a baby quilt for my niece. She was born in the year of the ram/lamb and her mother is Vietnamese. Thus the concept using the silhouette and Japanese fabrics. I gifted this quilt to the parents at Christmas, they were so appreciative and the other guests at the gathering were lavish with their praise. I hope it looks interesting to you all... :D

May I present: The latest quilt 

The quilt top is made from imprivisionaly piecing strips of the black striped fabric with the red components placed in interesting and pleasing arrangements. The black striped fabric was upcycled from a quilt cover that had a white based alternating strip. I cut out the black ones and used them because they were better. 

1/20/2017  - I added this quilt to the Friday Finishes for January 20th ,and AHIQ 2017.I am pretty new at this so I'm still trying to catch on to the blogging game :) click the below link to share
