Settings...


I love playing with different settings. This isn't a very good picture- it was too windy to hold up and as you can see, I had to lay the quilt top on the ground and anchor it with some bricks! But you get the idea. These are my 12 batik sampler blocks put in a setting that makes a queen size quilt- with no huge borders! Cool, huh? The stars at the cornerstones were made with Eleanor Burns' triangle in a square ruler set. Way easy and love the end results.
I've been sewing on Joseph and Laurie's wedding quilt- just nipping away at it really. Need to have a baby quilt finished by next weekend. The first I've made in years. I'm using some bright feed sack fabric. Hope everyone is getting some sewing time in. (I am supposed to be gardening, but the farmer has yet to plow- he will in the next couple days, I'd guess.)

What a great design - the blocks are so pretty and the cornerstones a stunning combo. Save the instructions!!!

I love batiks! I don't really like working with them much, but they sure are pretty!

Sewing is about the only thing I can do at this time but you still crank them out way faster than I do. Lovely...just lovely.

I love those cornerstones! I've got to get me an Eleanor Burns triangle in a square ruler set, now!
