fabric photos - this is the BACK of Hearts & Flowers

I recently updated my blog with a couple creative fabric photos. This one I love - it is the back of my Hearts & Flowers quilt that I finished a couple years ago. I have had it hanging for a while, but I've never displayed the back. Now I am "seeing" this quilt in a whole new way.

Check out my blog for a couple more fabric photos:

Need a little help

I was just going down th list of blogs in the sidebar, and when I clicked on my own, my website popped up instead of my blog. How do I change it?
Thanks in advance,

2 years and counting...

Well, this one has been 2 years in the making. Getting to the final stretch... I've had quite a few distractions, but I keep coming back to this one. Committed to 100% hand quilting. I am thinking about doing a quilt/embroidery stitch combo along the borders of each block... in a pink pearl cotton. Thoughts?  Too much?

Also, to see my many distractions, please check out my new blog: Quilting.Sewing.Living. I have ventured into machine quilting... and also have posts on my sewing studio and my quilt buddy's amazing studio.

Fields of Flower Bouquet Quilt

Hi Everyone,

There is a quilt of mine in Quiltmania Special Summer 2013 edition, photo of the magazine below,

 The quilt is,

Really easy quilt to do, it should get done in no time!

The fabric used is Kaffe Fassett's " Field Bouquet" and " Marquee" and if you are quick, Glorious Colors has the field bouquet fabrics on SALE!! I just checked the website.

Save you doing those " Baltimore" applique - Kaffe already had it printed in these panels. Rather neat fabric, don't you think? I rather enjoyed this easy piecing quilt. Cheers, Kim McLean
