Laying out my Pumpkin Maze quilt from Susan Ache's new book "Start with Strips". I added stars and I am quite smitten with the results. Now I need to go on-line to see if I can buy more Bramblewood fabric by @betsy_chutchian to complete the borders. Wish me luck! @yardgrl60 @martingaletpp

My Irish Chain blocks are finished for my Pumpkin Maze quilt in @yardgrl60, Susan Ache's, new book "Start with Strips". I how they came out. But I am very bummed that I cut my favorite Jo Morton and Betsy Chutchian's Bramblewood fabric. I need more Bramblewood!

First attempt at making sourdough baguettes. I thought it was a epic fail making the dough, but the rise was ok after sitting overnight. I think with practice I will do better. #thebakefeed

My center blocks are complete of my Sea Glass quilt featured in Susan Ache @yardgrl60 's new book "Start with Strips" published by @martingaletpp. I am working on the pieced borders. I made it a little bigger because I am going to sleep under this baby! Fabric from four of Brenda Riddle's, @brengr lines, including Ambleside, Bespoke Blooms, Fleurs and Caroline. #showmethemoda

Fabrics for my second make, Pumpkin Maze, from @yardgrl60 's fabulous New book "Start with Strips". I love the Irish chain block between the pumpkins. Once I finish Sea Glass I'll be ready for pumpkins! #startwithstrips @martingaletpp

Better late than sorry! Playing (sorta kinda) with @yardgrl60. For my first make, I selected the pattern Sea Glass from her new book "Start with Strips". I hemmed and hawed about what fabric to use.
I finally decided to pull soft romantic prints as she recommended. I pulled the most romantic fabric from several of Brenda Riddle Designs, @brengr. I cant wait to get more blocks made this weekend! #showmethemoda #martingale
Also,check out my beautiful new @warm_crochet scissors! They were a very thoughtful gift frtom my sister @aandriole. She loves me.

Lone havalina stuck inside my yard. They are pretty mean so I can't help him find his way to the gate. They usually run in packs, but I only see him. Wondering if he is sick or something.

Finally gave my granddaughter her last Christmas present, an Awesome Ocean quilt. She is home sick today so I came for a visit. But she wants nothing to do with me right now. Maybe we will cuddle under it later when she not mad because her parents left her home. She is the cutest, even when she is mad.

First finish of 2018 for @aandriole. I love how it came together. Strip pieced the blocks, cut them up and put them back together.
Ratchet wants attention. He has been sitting on the rows the whole time and won't get off the finished quilt until I give him some.

Weather is cooling a bit so I took out my flannel hexagon guilt I made out of @lisabongean Primitive Gatherings Wool and Needle III Moda fabric. If you have never used Lisa's flannels in a quilt you are missing out on the softest flannel you can imagine.
I really need to make another one for my husband for these cold winter nights. #showmethemoda #primitivegatherings

2018 APQ UFO Challenge. I finished 4 from last year's challenge so you would think I would just add 4 for this year's challenge. Nope, I only used 2 from last year. Figured if i did not do them last year what are the odds that I would do them this year. Let's hope I get all 12 done. #apqresolution
