China Blue

I’ve been collecting blue and white fabric for a while with the intentions of making something with it…someday.  But I decided the other night, that I just needed to start something new and different.

This is what I’ve come up with so far:

I think I’ll call it China Blue because it reminds me of fine china…probably because my fine china pattern is blue and white.

I feel like the layout is a constant work in progress, but then again isn’t it always?  Every time I go upstairs I rearrange it just a bit.

Black, White, & Red All Over: Done, Shipped, and Received

I finally finished the Black, White, & Red All Over quilt (well, I actually finished it about a month ago).  This quilt was a wedding gift to my cousin Debbie and her new hubby Mike.  I can’t remember the post wash measurement, but I think it was 53 x 63ish.

My quilting and sewing has been slow going this summer.  I was hoping that once the kiddos were back in school I’d have so much more free time to sew, but that just isn’t the case.  I’ve been working a lot more, and sadly there’s been little sewing going on.  One of these days I’ll get back to it…hopefully very soon.
