Sewing Studio Goings On . . .

Sorry for the lack of blog activity as of late, I took a little vacation which resulted in little sewing.

Before I left I did piece this back for my Short Line quilt.  I wanted to use up all that lovely Sanibel fabric.  I spent two sewing days cutting and piecing this back which surprised me, I figured it would go together very quickly.  But now that it's done I'm glad I spent the time putting it together.

And now that I'm home I've started this pattern, 

Vintage Tulips by Camille Roskelley for Thimble Blossoms. Cindy Lammon/Hyacinth Quilt Designs made a beautiful version that I fell in love with that moved this pattern from my To Do List to my sewing table.  (click here to see Cindy's version.)

Once I started piecing those tulip blocks I couldn't stop, I needed twelve, right now I have 20, 

with maybe more on the way!

I hope you have a great weekend.  I'm hoping to squeeze in some sewing, if the weather holds and my husband gets in a round of golf or two, I should be good!


  1. So pretty!!!! Nothing happier than some tulips!!! Love your colors and always.

  2. The tulips are beautiful and this is going to be a wonderful quilt!

  3. I could see those tulip blocks being great scrap users.
    Hope you had a relaxing vacation!

  4. What fun Tulips to make ! I can see how they would be addictive :-)

  5. They are very pretty! Have you tried golf also?

  6. I have been seeing the tulip blocks out in blog land, I am going to have to buy that pattern. I also love the quilt back you made. I have two quilts that I am trying to get the backs together for and I should try to make a little more effort and be creative, you have inspired me.


I try to respond to all my comments but sometimes I just don't get the job done. Please know that I am reading your comments and appreciate you taking the time to add a little of yourself to my blog.
