A new year already.. and the first month is gone..

Well hello All,

It's been awhile. I am really hoping to get back into the swing of things this year. I've missed blogging and I still have a huge pile of quilt tops that need quilting, maybe this will be the year :)

I did finish my dd's quilt in Dec.

 I just did some simple, straight line quilting on it.

All of my Cornerstone blocks (made with disappearing 9 patches and flying geese) are done, I need to order some sashing fabric for it, before I can get it all pieced together.

All the ones above are vice/verse blocks, two of each.

And these 5 are just single ones, as I needed a few more to make my design.

Lately I've been working on  Pat and my '+' blocks that we exchanged in 2013. I have the blocks sewn together, now I will be adding a 2" solid border, then a scrappy border...maybe a piano key border? we'll see.

a VERY busy quilt top... but I will enjoy looking at all the pretty fabrics in it :)... which needs to be ironed, of course ;)

I think I am going to be doing this BOM/blog hop this year. I am not much of an appliquer, so I probably will only do the pieced blocks, but it looks like fun :)

Sew Incredibly Crazy

 Thank you Amy and all the contributers, one of which is  Ms. Pat :)

I've never done a BOM before, so we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping it will help me get my sewing mojo back.


Here on the Ridge, we've been getting a lot of rain. We really need it, so it's a good thing. It's too warm this time of year here in upper California to get snow, unless you are up above 4 or 5,000 ft.... except for occassionaly we'll get a little bit, just enough to look pretty then it melts.

Have a great day.

Linking up with Lorna. Thanks Lorna!

  1. Love your finished quilt. The quilts in progress are fab. I look forward to seeing your BOM blocks. I'm tempted but not sure yet. I'll see what the first one is like before I decide I think xx

  2. Beautiful work, my friend!

    I love R's quilt. Wonderful design pattern. The blue background your chose showcases the block fabrics so well and it is so restful to the eyes. This quilt will be much loved.

    Your cornerstone blocks are striking. I look forward to seeing what you use for sashing.

    The x and + blocks are so bright and joyful. I need to get my top together and my quilt quilted so I can snuggle in the love you put in all the stitching.

    I is so good to see you blogging. You have been missed, Ms Dorian ... {{{{{{hugs}}}}}} <3 Pat

  3. It's wonderful to see you sewing and making progress, Dorian! Just keep thinking "a little a day" and progress happens! :-)

  4. Welcome back! I'll bet your daughter is tickled pink about that pretty quilt - it's such a great design, as is the pattern for your cornerstone blocks! I'm looking forward to seeing that one - it's going to be stunning. Your 'x' quilt looks like the perfect scrap quilt. I am partial to scrap quilts and yours looks especially fun.

  5. Such lovely blocks you have here but the clincher for me is the gorgeous, gorgeous multi-coloured extravanganza - it is stunning!

  6. I think your Cornerstone blocks are really nice! And I am sure your dd loves her new quilt!!! The fun thing about a BOM,to me, is one block a to look forward to, and there seems ALWAYS time for one block! Hope you enjoy this one!!!


Your comments make my day :)
