Mmm, Yummm, Sigh = Quilting Bliss

I have a big list this time for Kelly's
Charming Girls Club so I thought I ought to get busy.
I got a few things checked off after this weekend.

I have my  Double Hour Glass quilt put together now...
I have been hording this fabric group because I love it so much.
But I think that this was a fun project to use it in.
It will be one of the class projects at my retreat
next month.

And here I got to move on to working with BLISS.
This is just the sweetest fabric... I swear I want it all!
Not just some of it, ALL of it. If I were Camille I wouldn't have even let this go out to the stores.
But lucky for me she did... so I could make Marmalade!
Last year I made up some holiday banners, they are so fun and festive and also great for little gifts.

This will be  another class project at the retreat.
I was looking for some fabric to use for the banner and I ran across my leftovers from a Halloween quilt.
I loved this group... it's several years old now. But the vintage cats are so cute.
I guess I like cute Halloween, not so much scary Halloween!
Hannah is keeping an eye on me here!
She is warning me not to tell you that I have a secret.
So- okay, I can't tell you a thing... but... maybe
(picture to be inserted here- come back to check and see if I get permisison)

edit 9/23: I was told I could show this much...

just a little sneak peek at
a very special

Hi Sinta!
I just LOVE your DHG top - I've bought a 'Sweet' JR just for a project like this (phew, I finally got one...I could kick myself in my own b...utton that I didn't buy a FQB of this line when I could...hmpf! At least there's another Layer Cake-based project that waits for me in all its 'Sweet'ness.
Can't wait to see 'Marmalade' finished...love 'Bliss', too ;).
The banner is too cute!
Hugs, Julia

Jean said...

What a great idea... the banner that is... I have lots of left overs from Halloween and other holidays.... maybe make it reversible? I mean one holiday on one side and one on the other... I would just put it somewhere where you could only see one side of it! Fun!

Deb said...

Love your Bliss double hour glass quilt, do you have a pattern available for it? I purchased a bunch of Bliss last night and would love to make a similar quilt.
