It Is Coming Along

 Hello Everyone,

I am so excited about this quilt that I am currently working on, much of that is due to the fabrics that chose.

Most of you know how much I adore Kaffe Fassett fabrics as well as black and white fabrics.  So much so, that I stock TONS in my online shop.  But when you combine the two... BAM... you get an eye catching quilt.


See what I mean with the colors... Don't they look great?

The pattern that I am working on is My 2 Baby Sisters, which is one of Judy Niemeyer's quilt and can be found here in my shop.  Basically it is made up of two different size LeMoyne Stars and flying geese.

Super simple blocks to paper piece, but laid out in such a way the pattern has great eye appeal.


My trimmings.  I don't know about you but sometimes the trimmings can be as pretty as the blocks.

During my sewing time I had a visitor....


He climbed up and laid on some fabric that I had behind my sewing machine to get comfy.


Here is the line up of some of the warm colors waiting to be pieced. 


Here are the groupings.  There are 3 different fabrics in each color group.  I have a few more to complete, but this is where I am now....


I really like how they are looking.  This most likely is NOT the final placement.  I have a few more to go then onto the smaller stars which will fit in between the larger ones.

It was a good day and I was able to get a bunch done.


And had company as well!  Tired and sleeping, but company nonetheless.  Whew!... Sewing is such hard work!


Until Next Time...

I love seeing your detail photos. I notice that you have graded your seams to minimize the darker fabric showing through the lighter. When paper piecing you can't control which way the seams go.

The bright colors with black and white are perfect!

looks like kitty had a hard day keeping up with you! love the colors of the blocks. The main reason I do not paper piece is removing the papers - maybe you could do a post on an easy way to remove?

Aborable! My oscar loves to help me when I'm sewing too and yes he often finds the best stack of fabric to lay on. Love your blocks they are very fresh and bright. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.

The quilt is going to be another stunning one - just like all your other quilts. It would be so much fun to join you in a sewing day. Kitty looks so content.

This will be gorgeous! Your kitty is so adorable and sort of the positive of my almost black cat. He enjoys quilting too.
