Starting and finishing

Here are the projects I am working on today.  First is a wall hanging I made of wild and goosey 3 and a half inch paper pieced blocks. I arranged them into this design, bordering groups of four, and adding middle cornerstones and square in a square  blocks. All that is needed is binding.

And the second is the beginning of the log cabin quilt along. These are the first 2 blocks for week 1 of the expected 16. The pattern from Kim Diehl's pattern in Simple Appeal. I need to get started on the applique. This is mostly old Thimbleberries fabrics, nice rich colors.  


  1. I love your Wild and Goosey quilt. Your setting is wonderful! I've made the log cabin quilt you are starting and loved it. It was given to an organization for a silent auction item. Happy 2017!

  2. The log cabin blocks with 9-patch centers are really neat. I've never seen that before! Love your wall hanging, too.

  3. Hi Debbie, I tried responding to the comment you left on my blog, but you are a "no-reply comment blogger." You may want to be, but if you don't, go to this site and it will show you how to change it so people can reply to your comments. I didn't even know this was "a thing" when I started my blog. Welcome to blogland, by the way!


  4. My mind is spinning with all the possibilities using a log cabin block around another block. Time to take some notes!


    1. I saw a churn dash with a nine patch in the center, too. Also gives it a different look.

  5. Love Kim Diehl's designs. The 9 patch center is great.

  6. The Wild and Goosey mini is gorgeous. I'm going to make that block as my next leaders and enders project.
