Back Home In California

It is so good to be back home. Sunshine this morning and rain this afternoon. I love it! Nothing better than to be working in your studio and looking out at the rain. Tomorrow is the Common Threads quilt guild meeting so I had to get my trading cards done, especially since I forgot to make them last month. And I had a great idea for February! This month's theme was words. What better place for a quilter to find words than on the salvage of our piles of fabric. So that's what I used.

Before I left for Virginia, I made the block of the month squares. We were given the center (a piece of tie silk)and were to make a crazy quilt square.

I also made a quilt square for a church baby quilt. The squares are coming in so I will have to put it together soon. I'll post a picture when it is done.

Before I left Virginia, I taught Serena how to meander. She has been working on a quilt all by herself and stitched in the ditch but needed to do something in the borders. I just wish she was closer, so I could help her with her quilting. It's hard to do over the phone. She has some great material to make a teal with dragon fly quilt. I can hardly wait to see that when she gets to it.

Special note to "quiltedtime": I like your suggestion of using aqua in my challenge quilt. I think that is what I am going to do. Now more shopping! And I guess I should come up with an idea.
Off to make dinner. Pizza and a movie with Jeff. I missed those nights when I was gone.


  1. You're welcome! Those colors were just calling out to me. I'm sure you'll come up with something wonderful.

  2. Love the selvedge idea for the ATC's. Can't wait to trade with you tonight. I think there will be a lot of sad ladies tonight who won't be coming home with this months' block of the month.
