What I've been working on

We presented the quilt top to Marie on Wednesday. She was very pleased and just about cried.

And here are my siggy blocks I've done so far. I need 23 more.

On Friday Feb 27 three of us from Kraz-z Quilters traveled to Denton and Lewisville to shop for backing fabric for Marie's quilt. We stopped at Jo-Anns, Tuesday Morning (Priscilla needed a gift), Linda's Quilt Shop in Denton, and then Quilt Country in Lewisville. While at Quilt Country there was a sample on the wall that got me thinking. And I had a brain storm. You heard the thunder and lightning right? LOL I can't stop thinking about what can be done with stacked fabric. Got it bad don't I? I don't know if you've heard of the Many Moons and Miny Moons templates that The Quilting House in Breckenridge, Tx has designed. I bought the Mini Moons
template and stacked four layers and have sewn up several to give it a try. What's neat is that they make their own sashing. I wasn't sure the Miny Moon would be small enough to best show the kaliedoscope effect so I did some figuring (great mathmetician that I am LOL) and went to my dishes and found a saucer that would work for cutting smaller ones. Hence the smaller block in the photo. The smaller ones are a little more tedious to sew though. I think the effect is just fine with the Mini Moons and will probably stick with them. What do you think?

Blessings and happy quilting,


  1. Hi, I love the circles, and that they make their own sashing. I've never seen those before.

    Your siggy's are very pretty, too. Actually, I love everything you do! You'll have those last 23 whipped out in no time.

    I would love to have seen your friend's face when you gave her the quilt.

    I had planned to sew but going up and down bleachers for the school program Friday night and 2 basketball games yesterday 'bout did me in :(

    Take care,

  2. Don't you love surprising sister did the same thing when I recently gave her a sure warms the heart...your siggy blocks are interesting....everything you do is always very nice....Maine

  3. I don't like sewing curves, but this is such a nice pattern for kaleidoscope blocks !
