Here we go again

After working with those wonderful Civil War fabrics, I jumped to this!!  I've been asked to present a program to our Guild on this technique - "One of a Kind Quilts".  I've shared about this before, I love this technique.  I bought a new Christmas pillow panel to work with and then pulled fabrics from my stash that match.  I'm changing things up a bit and have made my own jelly rolls to work with (how fun is that?!?). The original directions call for a lot of templates, I'm trying to use some specialty rulers and see what happens.  The red, turquoise and green just make me smile!!
Here's the very early stages, I have many more blocks to make.  This is going to be so happy.
This is my last quilt I made using this technique - using these wonderful Kaffe pineapple blocks and lots of Kaffe fabric.  I actually sold this quilt when I was in Dothan, AL last October.  The new owner has graciously agreed to ship it to me so I can use it for my program.  Thanks Faye :). 
Never a dull moment around here LOL. I'm off to work, then I need to finish prepping for two workshops I'm taking with.............Cindy Needham!!
  I know - it's very exciting.  More later,
Karen

I can hardly believe my eyes. I have these same colors, some of Nancy Halvorsen fabrics from this Christmas, turquoise blues, greens, and reds. I have been letting them sit here while I have been trying to decide what to make with them. I have a Christmas card that has a neat design on it, some vintage birdhouses with holly, stars and snowflakes. Maybe the "inspiration" will come from this card. I just love these colors too. The greens make me happy!!
I love your "one of a kind quilts". I wish I was closer, so I could attend your workshop!
Cindy Needham, really, . . . . WOW!
keep us posted!

Those are wake me up colors. The book cover looks familiar but I don't think I have had it. I have a book for layouts for different amounts of blocks. And then fill in with bits and pieces to create a quilt. Is this similar?

I enjoyed seeing and reading about you over on Kim's blog! What a fun day for all of you. I wish I lived closer to see your program at your Guild. It looks like a great project you are presenting.
