3 new quilts



Let's see how my first posting attempt goes! The first quilt is a fun one I did for my friend Deb's little girl, Kayla, for Easter. Kinda goofy, but fun. Quilt binding is a good thing, I've decided.

The other two I did after I found this absolutely fabulous book at G Street on printing and rubber stamping on fabric that may just change my life. I had to immediately go over to AC Moore and buy stamps and ink, of course!

So the formatting leaves a bit to be desired, but I think you can get the idea. And for whatever reason, the words just don't photograph well---the green & brown one is the William Blake poem "To see a world in a gran of sand...".

Oh, and this was posted by Erica, not K.

Erica, great quilts! What's the name of the book? So you stamp the words one letter at a time? Imagine the possibilities.

You know, I knew one of you was going to ask me the name of the book. I have no idea--it's at home, I'll have to get that later. Some of the stuff they show is just great--stamping with vegetables and leaves and all sorts of stuff. But the letters are one at a time, so a bit slow.

THOSE pictures are MUCH better! i love the easter egg quilt -- very cool.

So what's everyone doing today? its grey and rainy here, which is doing wonders for my mood ...

I'm working on an Easter collage. My reward for cleaning the house, even did windows. Cold here but sunny. We have got to get the time fixed on our blog because I get confused easy these days. Also, are cool name would add to our mystic, but I got nothin'.
