Happy Friday! I’m sure happy for the weekend…it’s been a busy week, and now I get to slow down a bit and start binding the new pattern quilts that have come back from the quilter. Working on quilt binding is one of the most rewarding parts of the quilting process because you get to look at the finished quilt up close and really savor the process!
I’ve also been getting more pineapple blocks in the mail, and I love every single
one! Some of the blocks have come with the kindest extra little gifts including pineapple gemstones, washi tape, fabric, and the cutest pineapple pincushion I’ve ever seen! I’m really looking forward to putting this quilt together in the next couple of weeks…it will be one of those fun “just for me projects.” (You can read my original pineapple block post here which also includes the link for the free downloadable pineapple pattern).
And, I have another charm square quilt book to let you know about. My sweet friend Vanessa Goertzen and fellow Moda designer has published her first book, Charm School_18 Quilts from 5″ Squares: A Beginner’s Guide. This is really a fantastic book with eighteen quilts designs using charm squares.
Vanessa also used our Valley fabric for one of the quilts, her Cat’s Cradle quilt…
It’s a beautiful quilt, and the photos are wonderfully styled!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend…I’m off to do a little binding and get the blocks ready for my March block of the month release!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
