A bunch of stuff.....

Remember this:

Progressing..........

Well, here it is all finished:

FLIQ #1 - "The Puzzle" - finished

Kinda cool, huh?  It finished at 21 x 19 inches and is all ready to hang with sleeve, etc.  I just had to add the buttons, you know?  After all, it's sorta getting to be a signature!  I'm thinking this might be for sale.  If you're interested, throw a figure at me.  I'm really open for suggestions!  After all, I have only so much wall space!

On another note, I received a marvelous log cabin quilt from my partner, CASharp for the STUD swap.   Cindy is a very talented quilter and loves color just about as much as I do.  I can't imagine doing such teeny tiny piecing for so many cute little blocks:

If you look on her Flickr stream, she laid out those blocks all sorts of ways before she decided how to sew them together.  How fun!  Love it, Cindy!  Thank you!

THEN.......do you remember when I was salivating over the new Malka Dubrawsky fabrics?  And, how I finally went to my LQS and bought these:

Look what I bought yesterday....

I finally started using them......naturally with some Kona solids.  So far I have the warm blocks and the cool blocks.  See:

"warm" blocks

"cool" blocks

So guess what I'm going to be doing today?  I can hardly wait!  Stay tuned next time for the big reveal!

I can't afford to offer anything to you, I do have a name for it. When I look at it, Petula Clarks' song, "Downtown" comes to my mind. I love it!

Wow! I love your use of colours! I come to this blog to be inspired and it raises my spirits to see such beautiful work. I aspire to work outside the box and become freer in my quilting too. Thanks!
