Obviously my creative skills are better THAN my typing and grammer...
Lot's of luck!

(Don't get me wrong, I love yellows/golds, and purples, just not all together in one quilt.. complimentary or not, it's just my mind goes to an ICK FACTOR when I see them together...
Separately, a purple toned quilt, fab.
Golds, well, that is probably one of my favorite colors to use...after red... or mix them all up with a tone of colors... no problem....)

ago onto this top I never finished back in 1990...
I decided it was best to just leave it as I had intended, as what
bothered me then...(not being perfect) doesn't bother me now!
Then, I was fascinated by the solid colors of quilts on a poster that
I had called, Quilts of Lancaster county... I think someone gave me a
Amish quilt book way back then too... Although I knew nothing about
quilts other than my grandmothers crazy quilts... I knew I liked what
The fabrics are pretty funny... The greens area heavy cotton twill and
the pink and blue are very light weight cottons... Cheap and thin...
I wish I could recall if there was a particular quilt I was looking
at... I recall trying to find solid fabrics, and having had a hard
time finding the right shades... Which must be why I had a heavier
weight green... I also didn't have any money, so price was figured
into it... I found a price tag on the blue and pink.. It was $1.99 a
Anyway, I was in college and skimping by, and had I finished this, it
would have been my first quilt...
Now I need to select a backing, and am wondering if I should keep it a
solid or find some circa 1990 fabric to finish this project off...
Our house phones and cable have been out for two days now...
what a pain.

I thought the Halloween fabric would give it away!
She's been an inspiration for me since I started blogging...
we met up about a year and a half ago... you know,
Us crazy, free thinker, unruly quilter friends, gotta stick together..
Thanks Tonya! Had a blast...
Can't wait for your book to come out!

These are just from all of you!
I am soooo inspired after seeing all your blocks...
I'm seeing stars and boxes! And bright colors of course!
Can you spot yours?
And THIS is my STASH of Orphans... Yeah, I have quite a few... many old ones...
but none as fabulous as all of yours!
I'm a bit antsy... I want to start working on the orphan blocks,
but I just can't yet, until all the BASICS quilts are done...
I don't think I shown this one on the far right in the other two photos from sat.
I am getting there... slowly but surely.
I popped into the city, (NYC) today to get my mail,
and am heading out of town to visit a pal for a few days...
Had to see what work they were getting done at the loft...
It's coming along! We're getting there!
woohoo! new radiator coverswith bookcases built in... and a paint job...
I know, very exciting right?
I'm getting antsy... I want to clean this place out, and make it all homey again!
Anyone need a 9' pool table?
sure wish I could sell that thing and get it out of here...

The Star Splitter
It look like I got a ton done on this today doesn't it?
fooled ya. It was a sewing hooky day...
well sort of... I did this a couple days ago before
a migraine knocked me off my feet yesterday...
Actually, the day was spent with
Jackie, from Canton Village Quilt works!
She and her hubby and some friends brought
me another load of the BASICS quilts..
I took these tonight quick, so the pics aren't great... but you get the idea...
They fill my lawn with patchwork FABULOUS!
Recognize any of your blocks in there?
This batch had a bunch of baby quilts...
so so cute...
We, (my hubby , B and I) took them to the Montauk Lighthouse...
Of course, I didn't bring my
camera, but I am sure Jackie will have some great pics to share...
be back soon!
