Stripes and Blocks - an original quilt design

Here's a peek at my Stripes and Blocks quilt design, put together using the fabric sent to me by Myra and Cori of Blue Meadow Designs. I was also able to make the backing and binding and two super cool pillow cases with what they sent me, so it was a very generous package.

I'm very excited about bringing this and the matching pillowcases (which I'll share with you soon) to the Montachusett Interfaith Hospitality Network here in Leominster. It's wonderful work they do for families in need.

Last night I delivered Kerry's purse to her. She had already heard from someone else who follows my site that it was finished and how nice it looked. Kerry was pretty excited to see it for herself, and I think it's safe to say she liked it!

Now down to the sewing room to cut out blocks of delicious white Moda broadcloth for a retirement gift memory quilt I've been asked to make. Oooooh, Moda! Yummy!

Happy Stitching!
