What's Up

Well that is a big question, what's up
Seeing how I haven't posted since before the retreat I went to.
So I will show what I did at the retreat and what I have been doing these past few days, which is this Log Cabin Christmas Tree 
wall hanging

I have the blocks completed and now it just a matter of getting them sewn together. I'll get to that tomorrow.

While at the retreat I made this baby quilt top with the disappearing 4-patch block. I had a charm pack and used some "snow" fabric
Kaufman snow is one of my favorite whites to use. It's white but not a stark, bright white, goes well with a majority of the fabric I've collected.

I started late making my blocks for RCS14
First I wasn't sure what pattern I wanted to make and then with all that was going on the first part of the year, I didn't start until July.
One quilt is using a quarter log cabin in solid colors. I made these at the retreat, have the other half to do. Same pattern just will alternate the white and color strips.

The other quilt started is this one called Railroad Crossing. Using some of my collection of reproduction prints.

Takes 36 blocks so I need 3 in each color.
I'm still working on these.

And I did get one more block done of the Nested Churn Dash.
So loving the looks of these blocks.

Well you see, even though I have been very bad about posting here this past month I have been sewing. 


  1. Dear Kat,
    and you have sewd a lot of beautiful blocks, they will become wonderful quilts. I love them all, the Christmas Tree is awesome.

  2. What a lot of work, the Christmas tree is a real delight.

  3. I love the tree! Where did you get the pattern for that?

    1. I had receive the pattern from Sager Creek Quilt and Yarn Works, in Siloam Spring Ark. I believe Pam ordered it from the company that makes Creative Grid rulers. On the pattern it had the name Cut Loose Press. Hope that helps


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
