Kept In Stitches

Confessions of a fabric hoarder


Keeping Score

So heres the deal…I had a small stack of green Kona fabrics that I challenged myself to use. These scraps were from a recent project and I hate to throw those little pieces of fabric away. Then, I tried to justify starting a new project, rather than picking up an unfinished project and working on it. I decided to incorporate my green pieces into the Black & White challenge with the Valley Modern Quilt Guild that is due later this month. I know…black and white AND green? We’re allowed to add some color the the Black & White challenge. After playing with the blocks I finally chose my pattern and it reminds me of a bowling score sheet. I quilted it on Greg’s Bernina and I really appreciate quilting on a domestic machine. Keeping Score measures 16 inch square.

Curved Log Cabin Quilt


One of the quilt guilds that I belong to is having a UFO (unfinished object) challenge. This has inspired me to getting a few pieces finished. I’ve actually committed myself to finishing 10 of my UFO’s. Here’s proof that I do make a few things that are not modern. I really like the curved log cabin block and I’m looking forward to teaching this class locally very soon.
