an unfortunate cut of fabric

I have been making a jelly roll quilt this week. I used a jelly roll in the French General line by Moda fabrics called Bon Voyage. The design of the quilt is pretty simple, sort of a roman coin pattern.

As I was sewing together the strips I came to this particular strip from an 1800 century scenic fabric of noblemen and horses included in this jelly roll.

This particular piece has delighted my family and this sweet, cuddlely little quilt has become known as the "horse's a## " quilt.

Happy Stitching :)

Roseview Album Blocks

I have worked on Roseville Album the last couple days. This long block is what first drew me to this quilt. The pink pig,


and polka dot cow,


the hens and goat.

I also have another of the center blocks finished. I had to pin it outside next to the clematis which is in full bloom.

Hope you are all enjoying summer, happy stitching.
