My friend Linda over at Flourishing Palms blogged about her participation in the Dreamlines quilt-along, so I checked it out and, of course, signed up. Here are the strips made so far
And here is the link to the Dreamlines quilt-along if you’re interested. If you scroll down this landing page you’ll see where you can sign up for her newsletter and get the project each month. Even if you don’t do that, go look up “Dreamlines Brenda Gael Smith” on Pinterest to see some of her wonderful work.
Also from the internet, I somehow decided to enter the current round of PROJECT QUILTING, which you can learn about here. The challenge this week was the “54-40 or fight” block. Here’s my entry, an 18″ mini-quilt.
I’m afraid it proves that there IS such a thing as too much Kaffe! But it’s done, and it was fun, so good enough.
Finally, here are my blocks so far for the Studio Stitch Block of the Month. I’m enjoying the challenge and the variety.
What have you been up to lately?
I kind of like the Kaffe quilt & I love your SS BOM blocks! I’m enjoying this different blocks too.
OOoooo! I especially like the Studio Stitch one!
Thanks! It is a really fun and interesting BOM. Mary J Puckett ZippyQuilts@gmail.com My Blog: ZippyQuilts.blog
Oh, Mary…I love the Dreamline Project! I just finished a Heartfelt traditional block quilt. I made it because I like hearts. I chose a palette that is not my typical choice, since it was frilly and romantic. I’ve been wanting to do something different and bold, and I think the Dreamline Project is perfect. I think it is something I can commit to since it is over a span of months. I love the color choices, and the design and movement in the BOM and the Kaffe. You just made my Sunday!
Hi Chela! Oh, good, I’m glad you’re going to do the Dreamlines project, too. I’m sure you’ll do something interesting and creative with it. Send pictures! Mary J Puckett ZippyQuilts@gmail.com My Blog: ZippyQuilts.blog
I like your project quilting block.
I like your project quilting mini quilt. Always enjoy reading your blog.
Nice projects! I really love the Studio Stitch one!
Mary, may I ask what this BOM is called? I would love to learn those techniques and I didn’t see anything that looked like it on their website! Thanks!
The 54-40 or Fight block looks good. You managed to make those prints work well together. I just signed up for Dreamline too, but haven’t made any blocks/strips yet.
Wow Mary — what intricate piecing. More angles!
Hi Mariss! Those angles are all done with specialty rulers, either Jaybird Quilts or Deb Tucker’s. They make all those scary looking angles much more do-able. Mary J Puckett ZippyQuilts@gmail.com My Blog: ZippyQuilts.blog
You are so productive, just whipping out the quilts! I look forward to seeing how Dreamline comes out; and nice 3D effects on the studio stitch of the month piece!
Thanks! Being retired does wonders for productivity 😀 Mary J Puckett ZippyQuilts@gmail.com My Blog: ZippyQuilts.blog
