It was a literary quilting weekend

yes, literary, not literally Smile.  It’s a rainy day here, so my pictures are not fabulous


I was able to put the finishing touches on my Dr. Seuss Hopscotch quilt

The sashing looks very dark in the pic, but it’s Kona nightfall (a dark navy blue).  We have kits for this quilt, or just the pattern listed for you.  This is a great beginner quilt pattern that is both charm pack & fat quarter friendly.


and my Dick & Jane quilt.

I did a really tight stipple in the blue border and a larger scale in the red.  In the background of each block, I did ripples.

I used Aurifil solid white, top 40 wt & bobbin 50 wt, to quilt both.  yummy goodness abounds!

Since everyone loves Dick & Jane and I am celebrating a finish, this panel is today’s Deal of the Day , snap it up at just $4 before they are gone!
