the wedge challenge

my very first wedge block looks ok if you hide the center xo

 very surprised how challenging it is....i was inspired here at  hyacinthquiltdesigns and  i am also loving  materialobsessions modern wedge

each one has finished up differently...and i managed to sew 26 wedges together instead of the required 24 ~ also needed to cut wholes in 2 of the middles to get them to lay flat ???? so i need to do a bit more homework cuz i am doing something wrong ~ good news is that i am squaring them up and adding borders.
the possibilities are endless with this block...i started out doing just a practice block with denyse schmidt fabric but i am in LOVE with how well it works for this pattern.

happy friday xo pam

be someone that makes you happy

a teeny tiny improv finish for sara...i love this ~ i was inspired by banksy on instagram ~ it was a quote saying "be WITH someone that makes you happy"  and  the WITH was crossed out

i LOVE this heart fabric for the back ~ i found it at ikea a few years back  ~ i have very little left in my stash ~ boohoo and woohoo ~ i love how it makes me sad and happy to use up my fabric stash xo

a quilt for carey , napkins for ani and a few customer quilts xo

our hen party quilt group made a simple cotton and steel  quilt for our good sewing friend carey ~ she recently had surgery so a cuddle quilt was the  perfect thing xo

machine quilted w honeycomb by dave hudson ~ so soft with a pieced flannel back and  a simple stamped label ~ nbd our little group whipped this up in a week xo

and for ani's bd i made a few stamped dinner napkins with osnaburg cotton {LOVE} with charcoal stitches around the edges
meanwhile i finished up a sweet little baby quilt for iris with dancing daisy

and emily made a very special quilt for her father-in-law ~ finished up so nice with take five ~ i love this triangle pattern

                                       i say it all the time but it bears repeating  I LOVE MY JOB
