Way too long....!

I just cannot believe that I haven't blogged in more than a month! Time just seems to fly by! It's not like I have nothing to blog about, its more that I forget about the lapse of time between posts.

The summer sort of forgot to show up! I don't know how it's been in your neck of the woods, but here in Upstate New York, it's been a wet season! For a time there I thought Stephen would be building an ark! ;o)

The Shoppe keeps me out of trouble. ;o) I'm enjoying quilting samples for the Shoppe. I made a vow to myself that I would only make quilts for the Shoppe that I want to make. That's been my promise to myself, only buy fabrics that inspire me and make quilts that I would love to own myself. You'd think that would narrow down the pattern choices, but there are so many delicious quilt patterns out there. Let's just say, my heart keeps me busy! ;o)

So.... Yes, I've been a busy bee. I've completed many projects and neglect to blog about it. Sigh! My Coney Island is now a flimsy and I'm hoping to load it on Penelope and have it machine quilted before I show it to you. It really turned out gorgeous.

My newest project.... Women of Influence, designed by Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith.

It is a block of the month that the Shoppe will be offering in September. It's a gorgeous quilt!

This is the first block and it is in honour of Lucy Stone.

I had to rework the whole quilt on EQ6 as the rotary cutting instruction are rounded to the nearest 1/8 and technically, it really should be rounded to the nearest 1/16 for rotary cutting accuracy! I'm anal that way, what can I say?!?! lol

There are templates to use, but since I'm not much of a template user, I opted to re-work it. It is such a gorgeous quilt!

I've been keeping up on blog land, more as the invisible woman! lol Lot's of talented quilters! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
