A Little Sneak Peek

A quick post to keep you up to date with what I've been working on.


A Day in the Country Solids

I've selected five  fabrics from my stash of A Day in the Country solids.  Strips were cut from the width of the fabric and arranged in a 6 row repeat.
 ...
Aptly named  Bayou (a boy's name also meaning a slow-moving river or swamp), the quilt top and a pieced backing are finished.  Basting is scheduled to happen over the weekend.  Mmmm we'll see.


More pictures soon.

  3. I think the Day in the Country solids are the best. I love the colours in the collection, in particular the brown and I have 2 projects on the go with that fabric! It is so nice to sew as well. Your project is beautiful in its simplicity.

  4. I had to look twice to make sure it was not a single piece of fabric. Your seams are perfect. So you press them to one side or open them for strip piecing?

  6. I like it! I wonder if you will cut up the strips in small squares or maybe rectangles? Assemble them in a random or a colour themed pattern or if you actually will keep it just like that, simple and cheerfully stripy??? I just wonder... So curious!

  7. Oooh, and by the way. I borrowed some pics from your blog for an inspiration post on mine. including links of course. I hope you don't mind??? Let me know. I will take it off in a swisch if you want me to. You are my greatest inspiration at the moment. Your work is fantastic. And simple. I am a woman of simplicity too. Simply is king (or queen, however you prefer.) Happy 1st advent.

  14. Hey Rita! These are the colors I've picked for my son's nursery (I'm due in April). Can you please tell me what fabric line and colors these are? I'd love to get them!
