Roseville Album progress

Since I last posted here I have completed two more blocks.

Here are all the blocks I have completed so far.

I am looking forward to starting the next block.

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2012 brings good health, joy, peace, prosperity and plenty of stitching time!

My first block

This i my first block to Flower Pots.
I have chosen a black background fabric for this quilt. It's Dimples from Andower fabric. I love how the colors just "pop".  It will definitely not be the last time i use a dark background.

I have recently finished a quilt by Susan Powell, and I must say, that going back to one of Kim's pattern, it feels like coming home. Very relaxing.

I do not need a quilt as big as the originally, so I had to modify it. So it will be done without the top and bottom panels. This way it will fit my wall. I have an idea, that I could use either of the the leftover panels, to make a small wallhanging, with sashing around.

Help wanted...

Does anyone know what this fabric is called and who the Designer is? I think its Kaffe Fassett, but I can't find it on the web. It was in a fabric kit for Flower Pots, from Glorious Color, and I bought it last year. The background is black, and the little flowers is red and pink and orange.
It is very useful to the little circles, and I intended to get some more, in different color. So any information would be appreciated.

I completed another block for the Roseville Album. I must say those cactus flowers were a bit trying.

I began working on the house panel for a bit of change of pace.

Green with envy.....

Happy New Year to all!  I'm still sticking to working on this lollipop quilt!  This is the eighth block finished.

Flower Garden

Since LollyPops is finished I started Flower Garden.  I have 11 blocks prepped and ready to stitch,
I really like the clover background and have decided to just let the top and bottom borders go in a different direction.  With all the applique I doubt anyone will even notice it.

HI fellow GA enthusiasts,  I started my version of Roseville Album a little over a year ago and am happy to say it is done.  I machine quilted the star blocks in the border and hand quilted the central and corner blocks.  I enjoyed the entire process and love it.  Happy appliquing to all!!

LollyPop Trees Finished

I finished my LollyPop Trees quilt this week.  I started this quilt October 2010 so it took me  14 months working intermittently to complete.
Now on to Flower Garden.  I purchased grey clover to use as my background but now I notice the pattern is directional and I can't decide how to cut the top and bottom borders so the pattern will all go in the same direction.  Should I piece them ?  I think this is the fabric Kim used as her background - wonder what she did?    Nancy

Pat Sloan - A Finish

my smaller version is now hanging in my dining room.

It was quilted by Joann Hoffman..
she did an excellent job!

Check out how she quilted the fabric in the center.. amazing!

So what's next? I'm thinking 'Lollipops'. I have to decide on a color scheme.. but not for a bit as I'm working on a book to be delivered in March.. and have a lot of travel for teaching.. maybe I'll see YOU on the road!

thank you again for having this fabulous blog and to everyone for sharing your work.. its a highlight of my day to check for new photos!

8. block finished!!

After I finished the 8th vase, I started on the panel with the two big trees. And for the first time I took all the fabrics and layed them on the table. Thank you for the tip Paula!!! I was able to choose fabric for most of the animals in one go.And suddenly I have used a lot af fabrics that I havent used before! And I must admit, the colours looked lovely on the table, eventhough my husband doesnt quite agree, since its our dining table he he !!!

Well I was having an issue trying to choose fabrics for this block.  I previously took my Westminster fabrics and put them into a storage box.  For the life of me I couldn't see the fabrics (trying to be neat) well a quilting friend suggested, clean that table off and use it.  Great idea.  Now I can see everything. I was able to choose lots of fabric today!
