macaroni love story BFQ fall 2015

hello and welcome to the fall BFQ ~ i chose macaroni love story to share this time around in the original design category xo



macaroni love story ~ i built this quilt one block idea at a time



my love for improv and heather ross's fabric were the inspiration for this special quilt and the marcus brothers oasis canvas organic cotton paired perfect xo





 using applique , raw edge and piecing...inspired my many people and the everyday xo more here


 hexie love 

this block was inspired by the design on my shower curtain


and this itty bitty corner block make me so happy

a whole lot of love for sewing went into this quilt

 
it finished up queensize for our bed and i chose a zigzag for the machine quilting












i love everything about this quilt ~ from start to finish i enjoyed making it ~ IMPROV will always be my favorite way xoxo

 thanks for visiting my little quilt corner ~ HAPPY BFQ ~click on the link below for LOTS more ~ it has always been a huge source of inspiration for me ... and a big thank you to amy for creating this and organizing the fourteenth BFQ !!

log cabin quilt retreat 2015


another great sewing getaway with my hen party quilt group at logcabinquiltretreats

first i finished up #mysmallworldqal ~  i have been following verykerryberry's awesome qal with jen kingwell's pattern...it was originally published in a special [hard to find] spring edition of quiltmania but i heard there will soon be a pattern available  xo

i still have a few hand stitches and some fine tuning but i am mostly in love and had so much fun with this sweet quilt
next i cut into this special pile of annamaria's pretty potent ~ it was not easy
i decided on a large hexagon pattern... i am using a creative grid ruler and have learned to do a Y seam...easier than i thought and i am very happy with my fabric/pattern choice xo

and we had a little shopping trip to the ben franklin in monroe where i found a few treasures xo

i also worked on an oldie...i started these foundation pieced blocks in 2012 on a figtreefactory sistersister sewing week

i finsished 6 more 16" blocks  which makes it 64" square ~ thinking i will make one more row cuz i don't want a square cuddle quilt {love how there is lots of room for all of us and i especially love the large design walls}

 started this little cutie in my last few hours of retreat...i have had this half moon charm pack and urban garden by paisley bunny ready to start for a long time...it will be perfect hanging in my sewing room one day...

so approximately 27 hours of  ME sewing equals one tired and very happy girl with a finish, a bit of progress and a few new starts xo

we have been getting away together on quilt retreats for almost 20 years...how lucky are we?
                                                             happy wednesday xo pam
