UFO Completed for March

IMG_1125 In my box of UFOs  #1 turned out to be these Wonky Pumpkins.  The pumpkin blocks were made last fall as a demo for a class.  As I worked with the blocks this month I explored various liberated piecing ideas and had a great time. 
I also managed to incorporate a specific fabric (“Winter’s Grace, by Mark Lipinski), thus satisfying the requirements for a challenge I’m engaged in.   I’m delighted to have this little wall quilt all together.  I’ve even started on the quilting, and the binding is made and ready to apply. 
Now I'm eager to see what the project will be for next month!

New Book!

Look what arrived in my mailbox!  Autographed by the author!
Quilter's Color Club bookIt’s full of wonderful ideas for playing with color and fabric.  I’d like to dive in and get started right now!  You can read all about this book right here.
And there are some beautiful photos inside.  Including one of this quilt:
Log Pile ShadowsIt’s on page 91, and it looks great in the book.  Almost as beautiful as it looks on my wall at home.

Thanks, Christine!  I’m very proud to have a quilt in your book.
