Quilts Blocks and Quilt Tops

Life has been busy and I haven't been posting very often but I have managed to get a little sewing done.  I've made a couple more of these blocks.


I'm loving the fabrics in the Luna Notte range by 3 Sisters for Moda.

I also have some quilt tops waiting to be quilted.  I have had a really painful elbow from a quilt I did some weeks ago.  It had hours of stitch in the ditch and I've given myself a type of tennis elbow from pressing a ruler against the presser foot while keeping the needle in the ditch.  So I have been resting it instead of quilting my quilts.  These are some quilt tops I'd love to get quilted in the near future.

I was inspired to make this quilt top by a gorgeous book, Quilts of  Provence by Kathryn Berenson.  I bought the fabric quite a few (or more) years ago.  I can't wait to quilt it.

This nine patch I've posted a picture of previously but now I have this rich red fabric to use for the backing.  It makes me think of a red wholecloth quilt a longarm quilter made that had a name something to the effect of "Are red quilts warmer".  I love red in winter so I'm very pleased with my backing fabric.

The small quilt on the right is from the book, Remembering Adelia by Kathleen Tracy.  You can visit her blog A Sentimental Quilter .  Here's a better photo even though I've posted a photo of this one before too.

So, as you can see I have a few quilts to finish.

Happy stitching,


  1. Blocks are coming along beautifully!! Those are some gorgeous tops...can't wait to see how you quilt them!!!

  2. All absolutely gorgeous projects Rowena and I particularly love the quilt inspired by Kathryn Berenson. I have a really soft spot for Provencal quilts. I understand that sometimes there are just not enought hours in the day to blog, something I have experienced lately. Take care.

  3. lovely quilt! The Luna Notte is like a venetian tiled floor with a lovely aged look.

  4. Your quilts/crafts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!
