I had absolutely no idea that a lightning strike could cause a pipe leak in the slab of my home until I saw water seeping up from my baseboards and tile and did a little research. So here I sit, watching and listening to someone take a jackhammer to my kitchen floor to find and repair it. I just keep reminding myself to be grateful for the fact that we are all okay...and thank the Lord for insurance!
Clearly, I am back in business with internet, so I am happy to *finally* get to reveal my Stacked Squares quilt. I am calling this one Secret Lagoon. The colors are so peaceful and soothing, which I really need these days, ha!
I used all of the scraps on the back, along with some green ombre Moda Marble fabric, as well as the softest shade of blue Kona. It's hard to see, but I quilted this one in variegated green thread, which adds a lot of dimension to the quilt, and the lighter shade of navy in the binding is a perfect frame to finish this one off!
This quilt was made with a free Moda Bakeshop tutorial, found HERE, but instead of using precuts, I modified the pattern to use fat quarters or quarter yards. Since several of you have asked, I'll go ahead and include my quarter yard and fat quarter cutting diagrams for you again-
I am working on another little quilt with the smaller scraps from this one, and it is almost finished. Things just need to calm down a little bit so I can get it done!
With all of the crazy in my world right now, I almost forgot the highlights from the party tow weeks ago. How could I do that?? This quilt by Sew Preeti is a beauty!
This Plus Plus by New Creative Side is lots of fun!
and even though the 4th of July has passed, this one by Pretty in the Port Quilts is fresh and summery!
Okay friends! Since it's been two whole weeks since we last partied, I just know there is going to be so much awesomeness linked up this week; I can't wait to see. Be sure to link up more than one project if you need to!
1. You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!
*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
