What I worked on this weekend

        I am still working on a project inspired from this book.
While the book doesn't give you complete instructions on making a quilt,it does give general instructions and shows some lovely quilts on display. Inspired, I decided to do a quilt. I have completed twelve blocks featuring different black and white print squares surrounding  machine embroidered squares. There three different embroidered designs.

     I am designing as I go,so I haven't decided on a border yet. While I was searching through my stash, I ran across some fashion fabrics that I'd forgotten about. Usually when I purchase fabric, I separate the quilting fabrics from the fashion fabrics. This fashion fabric was at the bottom of the quilt fabric basket. Don't you love finding forgotten fabric ? It's like finding money in an old purse.
     Anyway, now I want to make something to wear,but that's another post for another day.

I think you are a wonderful quilt maker. I am amazed by each one you make. I know others would be too. Why not showcase your collection and bring us up to date?
