A New Quilt and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I have been a piecing fool these past few days, including a bazillion snowball corners, and I almost have all of the blocks pieced for my latest quilt.

Sometimes, while I'm piecing I just throw the blocks in a pile and press them all after they're all pieced, and then lay them out;  and other times (like today), I like to piece them and press them one at a time, and lay them out as I go.  It takes me a little bit longer this way, so it just depends on my mood.  Obviously, I have seven blocks left to go, and then this top can be sewn together.  I'll be writing the pattern for this one as well because it is so much fun, and it creates a unique secondary pattern, so stay tuned for that!

Last week's party was amazing!  Clearly, the (hopefully) imminent arrival of spring is great for creativity.  Paula at Color, Creating, and Quilting shared her version of my Courtyard Tiles pattern.  So lovely!

Anne-Marie at Stories From the Sewing Room linked up this cool, soothing Meadowland quilt top.  I love these colors so much!

Sew Preeti Quilts showed off these two amazing quilts for Australia-

And this sweet mini is by Anja Quilts-

Okay friends!  Before we party, I have to let you know that I might not be a able to post NTT next week.  I am posting a little early today because I am literally about to walk out the door to take my MacBook to the Apple Store for service, and I am crossing my fingers that I get it back before next week's NTT.  So, if I'm not here, you'll know why.  Ah, it's amazing how dependent we are on technology.  Gotta love it!  Anyway, let's get down to it-

1You 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.

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!  :)


  1. love all the quilts you share - love Preeti's trees!

  2. Your blocks are fun, it's going to be a beauiful quilt! Great featured quilts too!

  3. Enjoy piecing your new quilt, Kelly!!

  4. This looks like fun! I love a good secondary pattern and can't wait to see it when it's sewn together. My mood dictates how I'll piece, press and sew blocks. It's always changing!

  5. It’s always good to know how other quilters approach their projects, and even a nice ease in knowing that it’s okay to change-up things - piecing a bunch, then pressing; or piecing then pressing one by one. Your quilt is looking good. It’s always nice to see others’ work too.

  6. That new pattern is really cool! I can't wait to see it finished :) Good luck getting your computer back quickly!

  7. Eek! Thanks for sharing my Meadowland quilt! :D

  8. Your blocks look great. I wish your computer good luck.
