Here’s the latest Stormy Weather picture:
What surprised me is the circle that the white stars form around the interior stars. Very cool!
New Quilty podcast! Lazy Daisy Quilts—http://verylazydaisy.podomatic.com/
Waiting for a hurricane–hope it doesn’t get here!
Here’s a picture of the first three Stormy Weather blocks. As long as the power doesn’t go out, I plan on making a whole bunch more this weekend.

That’s right, I said “Bernina.”
More on that soon.
ETA: 8-17-11/9 p.m. Podbean has been down all afternoon, so I haven’t been able to post the episode. Fingers crossed I can get it up tomorrow!
Some pictures of knitting, since I have no quilting pix to share:
I’m having a great time working on my sampler quilt. The latest block-in-progress: Dresden Plate.
And Shoo-fly Pie is a done deal:

I’ve been back on the needles this week, but I’m riding the machine as well. I like having it both ways, don’t you?
I don’t have anything finished to show you this week, but my mom does. Look at the lovely quilt she’s made to take her friend for a hostess gift.
Isn’t it beautiful? Hope to have some pix of my own quilts up soon!
Kristen has a new blog, They Grow Up Too Fast, with some great pix from the Sisters Quilt Show. Go check it out here: http://theygrowuptoofast.wordpress.com/
The book I talk about in the intro is The Story of Charlotte’s Web by Michael Sims. You can check it out here.
Pretty! Zinnia? I think so.
Can’t remember what this one is called (it’s one of Will’s), but it’s a very nice addition to our flower garden.
Marigolds, of course!
Blackberry jam! Whee!
Here’s Shoe Fly Pie, unbound, back and front.
Still haven’t figured out the pixel thing, so you’ll have to click on the pictures to get a clear view. However, this time (unlike last time) the pictures are actually in focus. As Pam over at Hip to Be a Square would say, Huzzah!
I’m back from my travels–whee! Here are a few pix of what I’m up to.
As always, click on the image to get a clear resolution.
Six of the nine Shoefly Pie blocks:

The fabric for my curtains, Lumiere de Noel by French General for Moda:
Have a great week!
As always, click on the pix for a clearer view.
Here’s the latest block for my class with Jaye, the Dutchman’s Puzzle:
And here are my blocks (so far) for the Robert Kaufman Modern Quilt Guild Challenge:
Hope you have a great week!
I’m trying to get a lot of quilting done without passing out from heat stroke. Not that I’m quilting in the sun, but after a day at the pool, I’m drained. Fortunately, the AC revives me …
Here’s a picture of the Sawtooth Star I made for my sampler quilt:
And here’s one of my liberated Shoo-Fly blocks for the Modern Quilt Guild challenge:
Have a great week quilting!
So many projects, so little time!
So check out the Razzle Dazzle blocks below. If you click on the image, you’ll get a clearer, better look. Do you think they need sashing? Is the color too much altogether? Please let me know what you think!
Here’s the cardtrick block:
Don’t forget to enter the Podcastiversary Giveaway!
May 12 marks TOKQ’s first year in the podcast universe (in the episode I say I think it’s May 10th; I was wrong)!
It’s been a most fantabulous year, and to celebrate I’m doing a double give-away. Leave a comment and you could win either a copy of Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott OR Stitched, a documentary film about art quilters. You can enter both give-aways or just one—up to you—but please be sure to specify one (and which one), the other, or both.
Deadline: May 31st, 2011.
Here is a picture of the double pinwheel block I just finished for my class for Jaye:
And here’s all three of the blocks together, though I imagine in the finished quilt they’ll find new friends:
This week I’ll be working on the following blocks: Card Trick, Sawtooth Star, and Dutchman’s Puzzle. Fun!

As promised, pictures from my garden. Remember to click if you actually want to see them in focus.

First, my new, temporary design wall. To the left is Betty, in her night gown. I still haven’t found her the right spring dress. The blocks on the left are the blocks I made this week for my quilt class with Jaye. By the way, if you click on the photo to enlarge it, it looks a lot more in focus. Why is that?
A closer look at the batik blocks:
(If there’s a theme emerging here, it’s that I’m not a very good photographer)
Some hand quilting shots–the pattern is ginko leaf.
Here’s the newest, revised stack of fabric:
I added back two of the darker fabrics for a little more contrast. Hope it helps!
