Sugar Block Club 3.0

I’ve been working on finishing up some long standing works-in-progress.  One of those is from the Sugar Block Club 3.0 by Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock.  I finished the top a short while back and just needed to baste and quilt it.  Well, lets check those two tasks off the list!  Done and done!My color palette was taken from the floral background fabric which included berry, moss, and teal.  I set the colors off with some low volumes from my stash.  I like how all the colors play so nicely together and look at those Mirror Dots shine!I used a wood grain like quilting motif inspired by the Gentle Curves section of the book Walk by Jacquie Gering.  I like her term of Forward Motion Quilting to describe using your walking foot and not having to stick to straight line quilting.  There are so many options available to those of us that do not yet have those free-motion quilting skills.The backing consists of what I had remaining of the floral and an additional pattern that I found in my stash that carried the theme forward.  I took an Instagram poll and the overall winner was the berry for the binding.  I was pretty close to out of any of the berry that I used in the quilt top but found this Rhoda Ruth fabric in my stash that was the perfect color to frame this beauty.I’ve got another old WIP awaiting some binding so back to it I go.

Happy Sewing!


Stash Enhancement – October 2016 

I’m making a separate stash post to help celebrate the 200th Sunday Stash post over on Molli Sparkles blog.

I gave in to a bundle sale that Southern Fabric was having and picked up a few things.


First is this Blueberry Park bundle of loveliness.  OMG!  It’s so fabulous!I couldn’t pass up the price on this bundle of Atrium by Joel Dewberry.Pandalicious was a must to make something for my Mom.  Her favorite dog was named Panda.  Now, I just need to figure out what to make…..Charm Packs:

While I was there I found some charm packs on sale.  Grand Canal by Kate Spain.  Her work is always beautiful. Rhoda Ruth by Elizabeth Hartman has such both great color saturation and cute prints.Layer Cake:

I loved the Hey Dot charm pack so much that I decided that I needed to get a layer cake for a cute charity baby quilt.That’ll probably do it for me until after Christmas when the bug will hit yet again.

Stash your happy!
