Stash Report and A Next!

You know me by now.  I gotta be working on something!  So here are the next few things.

When Frank had all those points from his sales awards, I thought they were better spent on quilt books rather than those silly B Sci-Fi movies like The Creature From The Planet Zorgon.

And Cultural Fusion was one of them I chose.  Since then I have seen so many of the modern (and not so modern) quilts make fabulous quilts from this book.  I was so jealous they were having such a good time in Sew Alongs with Sujata herself, that I thought I would at least try some on my own.

So if you have the book, and want to do a Sew Along, LETS GO!

Here are two blocks from the book.

This one is simply a ton of scraps from my existing (and never ending) scrap boxes.  I paired up dark and light and made a kit to take with me to retreat.

This one is from garments I purchased for 99 cents at The Purple Cow.  The stripes were crop pants and the leafy things was a linen shirt.  the beige was a sofa fabric sample that softened after it was washed.  And discolored a bit as well to make some soft shadings.  Now I need to dig through Frank's pants and,


I will make sure he understands THIS time that I will CUT THEM UP!

I won't do THAT again!  LOL    But it was really funny to see the look on his face!

  1. I like that first scrap one. It's the cover quilt, right? Each block can be different scraps but as long as you follow the light dark being the same throughout - it works!

  2. I've been admiring that book for a while too and finally bought it last week. I'm ready to try at least a block or two, and maybe it'll be like potato chips and I won't be able to stop.

  3. I have been hoping the library would get this book, but they haven't yet. I like your blocks!

  4. Do you know about the Cultural Fusion blog? Lots of us are sharing our projects there - and there's a rail fence QAL, too.

    I'm hopelessly hooked.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
