Making progress on the

I made these blocks while on vacation in February
with a "QUILTY" jelly roll and some gray solids

The pattern I started with was called Pick up Sticks.
I like the block design idea but trimmed them a bit smaller
and ditched the pattern.    

 All vertical rows are sewn.
Solid white will finish off the sashing between rows

Almost have a tote bag done....
just need to add the top stitch on the top of the bag
and a huge button for the tie closure.


This Geekly Chic fabric is sew me in the 60s

And "not for me" I have been working on a customer kwilt.
Custom kwilting a Ghastlies on my home Bernina!

Just need to do the black / gray spider web blocks.
Maybe kwilt a large spider web?

Sew there ya have it.

  1. Love both quilts!!!! and the bag is so sweet

  2. Those jelly roll quilt blocks are lovely, they look great against the grey :)

  3. Like your pick up sticks blocks they look fun. Working o a scrappy Chevron, when life is not happening.

  4. Love that WIP Pick Up Sticks! Looking great on the design wall, Kathy! What a cute bag, too. Those fabric choices are fabulous. Have fun finishing your Gastlies customer kwilt!

  5. I love the bag and your quilt on the design wall. I definitely think you should quilt a large spider web.

  6. The white really sets off the blocks in the pick up sticks quilt. Love your fabric choices for the bag and the Gastlies kwilt is wonderful. I can't wait to see how you quilt it.

  7. I love your sweet bag, great color choices, cant wait to see the BIG button you choose...I found you on Let's Bee Social.

  13. the guilt is quite qure...I like the spider web idea....
