2014 Q3 FAL 3 for 3 and Amish-ish

A much better finish with all of my goals met this quarter.   I'm so rusty at linking up for the party - it's been so long I've kind of forgotten how! Good thing Katy spells it out for us so nicely. 

Don't be confused about the fact that TWO of the quilts look SUPER SIMILAR.  That's because they are companion quilts for the Michael Miller Challenge, Goal Setting Post found HERE

A Burst of Amish-ish

I've been in a bit of a pause lately (aka burn out).  When my friend Anne came over for a basting party and I saw her quilt entry for the upcoming community exhibition of Amish: The Modern Muse at the San Jose Quilt and Textile museum it sparked a frenzy of late nights and IG crowdsourcing.  
(the kona brown for binding on the left won out)

I was sad about missing out on such a wonderful opportunity and had been thinking about what to make, designing QDAD with it in mind, buying solids to make it but doing nothing about it.

Feels so good to be in the thick of things rather than the sidelines.

I'll share more but the clock is a tickin' and I've got sewing to do.

One deadline at a time.  I've got a stack of HST with my IGmini partner's name all over them.

Today was my 45th QDAD design and I'm hoping to make some of them into actual quilts one day, maybe even for the swap.   The group is on facebook Quilt Design A Day.


  1. I have been IG stalking you, too. Lots of beautiful work going on, and I am glad to see that you are having fun sewing again!

  2. Can't wait to see your Amish ish quilt. That was going to be the name of mine too. (Not anymore though. )


Let me know that you stopped by - leave a comment and make my day!
