Quilting bee

I'm so glad that I joined the quilting bee organized by the New England Modern Quilting Guild. It's been a great way to stay connected and to share ideas with each other even though I don't get to see those guys any more. This month was Rebecca's and she was inspired by an Ingrid Press quilt, asking us to use neutral solids around a print "center" and using some other prints/solids as accents. I really, really enjoyed making these blocks and can't wait for Laurie's next month!

It might be hard to tell in the pictures, but the fabrics are mostly neutrals - shades of tan, light blue, light yellow, I added a very pale pink, and then I used a deep purple for an accent strip in the top one. I hope you like them Rebecca! :)

I saw this sewing machine in the National Museum of American History in DC over Thanksgiving weekend. It's amazing to see how basic these machines were in their origins compared to how they are now!

Thanks for looking!

  1. I like the blocks! You are so great with solids. That machine doesn't look that much simpler than my current machine...
