Cuppa Joe

Here's my latest finish- and it's on my 2009 Personal Challenge list- bonus!!

It's a Split Nine Patch made with charm squares from the "Bistro" collection by Deb Strain for Moda! It's so happy! The binding is actually from the "Marrakesh" line from Blank Quilting. I couldn't believe how well it matched! The backing is a flannel from the "Woolies" by Maywood studios. It's perfect for a day like today- cold, spitting snow, and very, very windy.

I have 2 more quilts that just need the hand sewing on the binding done, and they're done too! One is on the Grand Quilter, almost done being quilted, and I have another ready to go on, probably Monday. I have been rocking the UFO box this week- all 5 of these quilts are on my Personal Challenge list!

Please pray for a friend of mine- she has some serious health issues, and today she was involved in a hit and run accident- she was hit. She says she's "kind of ok...could be worse I guess- just emotionally drained and physically hurting".

  2. This little quilt is wonderful, Jennie. You are right, it has a "happy" feel... I love the Moda charms, they feel so nice and work up so well.

  3. I do hope your friend is not too injured. What a frightening experience! Your quilt is wonderful and the fabrics are amazing. I like the broder fabric a lot too.

    Happy Stitching...Ann :)
