Strippin’ in Black and White

Nope…it’s not what you think. Or…maybe it is! It was recently brought to my attention that my Etsy shop is overloaded with (ahem) ‘girly stuff’.  Vintage sheet Pink Rail fence I realized….. that’s very true.  There’s a lot of pinks and pastels and shall we say, more feminine quilts and things on there. Not so much for in the Manly Men department. So I am working on that discrepancy this week! Here’s a sneak peek: Strip Quilts come together quickly! I cut some of my fav black and white fabrics…

Quick & Easy Summerweight Quilt

These pics were taken at sunset, and I didn’t notice the shadows until after.  And it IS actually a rectangular quilt, laugh. I am just working on my photography posing skills. This is a summer weight quilt I made for my Mom. She’s in a home and it’s so beige and institutional she asked me for something bright for the bed.  As you can see, this fits that bill!!  I used fabrics from my stash for the front; it’s a mix of Moda prints and other prints that I have…

Checkerboard Top Finished!

Just a quick catchup on the progress of the Checkerboard Quilt.Not the best pic; sorry. It’s a bit rumply. The top is done; it is a bit bigger than I originally intended; it’s twin sized, and I was going to make it a lap quilt but;sometimes they have their own minds. I used a jellyroll of Moda 30’s solids and Kona Cotton in ash for the checks and some border and then Kona Coal for the darker grey border. I think I am in love with Kona Coal, yessiree.  I…

Checkerboard QIP!

And this pattern is super easy to follow; once I figured out the whole left/right things. Ha. Here is the QIP: (Quilt…
