JOINT EFFORT


If you have been reading my blog for long, you will know that my sister, Jeanette, and I do a lot of projects together.

She has a tendency to pull me out of the box I have around me.

She introduced the Quick Curved Ruler to me a while back.

seems they changed up their ruler some.



Jeanette owns an online fabric store, Inchworm Fabrics.  She sent me some fabric to do a project with her.  I have shown you this quilt before but she now has hers done and so we can show them together. 

I have actually done three different designs using this ruler and have loved each of them.

I just loved this quit but no longer have it, I gave it to my son and his wife for Christmas.




You can find Jeanette's post here:  I love hers as well, she played around with the blocks and came up with her own design.

Here are the beautiful fabrics at Inchworm Fabrics   I love the beautiful Oriental fabrics, always have.  I think they are my favorite right up there with batiks.

Not much going on in my sewing room.  I made 40 blocks for a quilt I am designing from the outside in....I always love to just wing it and that is exactly what I am doing.  I know there is EQ8 and I have that but there is nothing I love better than just cutting and sewing to see where it takes me.  I also have a fun idea on how to quilt it but we will see, got to get the design going first.  It is a custom quilt for someone.  Boy she sure puts a lot of faith in me.

HI Barb, I have missed you.
I love your "Gaggle Battle Quilt" It is very pretty. Your son and his wife are surely lucky to have it.

I made a quilt with Oriental fabrics and a black background once upon a time. It really showed off those lovely fabrics.

Beautiful quilt with yummy Japanese fabrics. You both did a great job. What fun to be able to quilt along with your sister. Very special indeed.

I love these and really need to add your sister's shop to my list! I don't buy a lot, as I am really focused on stash destruction BUT there are always those special needs. I love your quilt and can't wait to see what you are working up. I wish I had the "wing it" gene...not really one I have!

How nice to be able to work together with your sister. You both did an amazing job! I love the Oriental fabrics too. I noticed that you still had my old blog on your side panel. That blog was hacked last year. I spent almost the whole year in several hospitals and when I returned home, my email, blog and facebook couldn't be opened. My new blog is hettyquilts.blogspot.com

I like the way those blocks come together! And I'm right with you on the oriental fabrics. LOVE them, especially with the metallic accents.
