On a Roll!

This is at least the third Friday in a row I've posted a finish to the blog.  Whoot! Whoot!

A while ago I bought a collection of purple fabrics through Sew It's for Sale. A group that is dedicated to selling and buying sewing "stuff."  I've bought thread, patterns, and fabric from individuals who are selling their "stuff." I bought a couple of collections from one gal over the years.  Now I keep trying to use the purple fabric, in particular.  Here's one I've recently finished. 

The "purple fabric" I bought was actually pink with the purple rocking horses.  It was in strips so I cut several to add to the yellow and purple solid I had on hand. 

Pattern: My variation on MaryQuilts' quilt Quick Strippie.
Quilt Design: Ginger Heart by Apricot Moon.    
Thread: White Omni by Superior Threads.

Aren't the azalea peeking out gorgeous?  It's one bush that blooms in both light and dark pink. 
Although I don't remember doing it I probably show it every spring because it is just so beautiful!

I have enough of the baby fabric to make another strippie.  The fabric on the right is one I purchased from Marshall Dry Goods.  You can read about the fabric here. I've been really happy with it.  Eventually I will buy more from them but mostly go withs.  

While I was snapping the quilt pictures there was a robin that was really irritated with me.  Here he is on our neighbor's fence. He was hopping around and chirping at me.  I'm guessing she? has a nest in the backyard somewhere.  (Truth be told, I didn't even go all the way down the stairs from the deck!) Hum, I wonder if she is the one that ate all the berries off the holly tree in the winter?

Today I'm off to a friend's house and attend guild meeting.  We're learning how to use the Deb Tucker's Studio 180 LeMoyne star ruler.  I've already made one but I figure when I have access to a certified teacher I'll learn some cool tips on how to make it perfectly.

I'm linking up to my regular parties: Midweek MakersNeedle and Thread Thursday, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?, Finished or Not Friday, and Beauties Pageant. Wow!  That should keep us busy for a while won't it?  Hope everyone can visit a few more blogs this weekend! 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. The addition of the purple and yellow strips makes the focus fabric pop even more. Is it common for azaleas to have two colors on one bush?

  2. I have the Lemoyne Star ruler, haven't done one in a while. I should put that on my list to do;) It will be fun to see what you create with it. I ordered batiks from Marshalls before and was happy with it. I would love to go to the shop!!

  3. What a sweet and fun quilt. Love the colors your used. Have a lovely Mother's Day weekend, Bonnie

  4. The Lemoyne star ruler is great. I had a project that had 3" Lemoynes as cornerstones in the sashing. They were perfect!

  5. This little baby quilt is filled with sweet whimsy and bright, happy colour. 'Tis gorgeous! The rocking horse print is adorable. Spring is looking lovely there. Your azaleas are stunning.

  6. Nice quilting on that cutie baby quilt, Bonnie! I love azaleas. Yours is a beauty, two toned! Nice you can have a guild meeting and lesson!

  7. Go you !! three in a row - that is impressive! and what a cute quilt - that rocking horse print is so cute!!
