Tuesday's Musings

Hi all. I'm still here enjoying summer and not getting as much sewing done as I thought I would on my summer break from work. Three more weeks off and then back to work. Yikes! Anyways, I finished my small version of Imagine from Schnibbles Times Two, a fabulous collection of quilt patterns by the way.
This is the little sister of this quilt which I made at the beginning of the summer.

Just a wonderful pattern in my opinion. And in the mean time I've been gathering my Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett scraps and putting them together into a couple of baby quilts. Two of my nephew's are expecing baby girls with their wife in one case and girlfriend in the other so I'm experimenting with what I have and seeing what I can come up with. I rarely make pastel baby quilts.

We'll see when I finish if I like it and if I don't, I know I can gather more fabrics from my closet and come up with something else. So enjoy your summer. It has been a hot one here in NH. Yesterday and today have been pleasantly cooler but the heat returns on Wednesday according to the weatherman. No hints of fall here yet. Soon, very soon. 


  1. Its amazing the diffence in the color hues in those two pictures. That's a great quilt. I have not tried anything with the Kaffe fabrics, but am sorely being tempted to seeing all the lovelies on blogs.

  2. Both quilts are lovely! Can't wait to see the Kaffe Fassett quilt develop.

  3. Your large version of Imagine is certainly a favorite of mine. I really like the colors. Looking forward to seeing the finished "baby quilts". It looks like you live in a beautiful part of the country. Some day this California girl hopes to get to your part of country, maybe sometime in the fall! I enjoy your blog, a lot.

  4. OOOO I like what you have going on in the last photograph. :o)

  5. I like the colors for the quilt so far.

  6. I love both your Schnibbles quilts! And the Amy Butler/Kaffe quilt is looking very cool! I love the diagonal lines.

  7. Fantastic baby quilt. Love the colors and design and everything about it. We'll both be sending quilts to Scott and Meg's baby girl, and they are going to be totally different designs and fabric, lucky them!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
