Happy Feb 29th!

We get an extra Design Wall Monday this year! But I have nothing on the design wall as its down for a few days (maybe more than a few) while I paint the long arm room.  The jewel tones are going and making way for Vintage Linen.  I'll miss my color, but will be a refreshing change. I may have to compensate in quilts that are oozing with color to make up for the lack of on the walls.  Sure will be glad when it's done.  But I have a design table which has a few things on it. First up the next two blocks for Splendid Sampler.   I really am liking this mystery sampler.  I've been able to keep up and hey, we're 5% done!  I'm making blocks that I know I never would have done if I weren't participating and finding that I really do like them.  It's the adventure and going down paths that you might not have traveled otherwise.  Anyone doing the Splendid Sampler?  Here's blocks 4 and 5.  Block four I used the flower centers on the Accuquilt Round Flower Die, they were the perfect size and for fusible, cut perfectly!

Look who came to visit this weekend.  He insisted he was a Dr in this picture.  I told him he really looked more like a quilter!  He loves fabrics, I really think he's my best chance at having a quilting buddy so far.  One thing we did agree on is who's car seat cover was on the table. We both agreed that one should go to Louis.  This is from a pattern Daugther #2 picked up at Joanne's.  Like the strategically placed strip of coordinating fabric? That's what ya do when don't have enough of one fabric, add more to it.
He looks like a quilter right?

Calvin gets this one. I've had those fabrics waiting for a couple of years for the right project.  Just barely had enough to finish these to. Great to be able to complete projects with what you have on hand.

Hope you have a great week with some quilty fun.  Check out the linky parties on the side bar, lots of fun all around.


  1. I haven't joined in on the Splendid Sampler, but it is tempting. Your applique block is so cute!

  2. I love the fabric in that car seat cover and I love the photo of your little doctor/ quilter. My first grandchild will be born in a couple of weeks and I hope he grows to be a quilter as well.

  3. What a great little helper you have. I hadn't heard of the Splendid Sampler but will have to investigate. Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  4. I love your fabrics for the Splendid Sampler! You are on a roll!

  5. I've started the Splendid Sampler, although I'm only done with blocks 1, 2, and 4. It's fun to see all the different fabrics people are using! Yours look great.

  6. That block with the flowers is so sweet...especially the way they are coming out of the brown vase. Adorable! And your little quilting buddy is adorable too. :) Thanks for linking to MCM!


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
