I had a great time at NCQC today and I have a couple of new quilts for the ol' blog. This one is called Sack-o-Tomatoes. It could be made in any color combination and is a great use of scraps from our stashes.

5" Floppies

This is a great modern take of the basic weave using 10" squares. It's a quick and easy way to use up those Layer Cake packs.  This quilt whips up in a jiffy and makes a marvelous gift!

I'm a Pattern Makin' Machine

I have a couple of patterns to add to the site. Gum Wrappers reminds me of the gum wrapper chains we used to make as kids. Looky Lulu is named after my sister whose nickname is Lulu. They are snow ball blocks in a hexagon layout. Hippie Beads is a great use of color to achieve a 3-D look and Diamonds in the Rough is a great use of scrap fabrics.
