Applique Quilt Center and Binding done!

I have this pretty applique block I've been picking up now and then over the past few weeks in between quilting the repro nine patch.  As you can see I've made a bit of progress.  I think I mentioned it's a Blackbird Designs block from their book When the Cold Wind Blows.  I'm loving how it's looking so far.

For the binding on my repro nine patch I used a Blackbird Designs fabric that matches the setting square fabric.  I love how this quilt has turned out.  Just needs a label now,yay.  Sometimes the simplest designs are the most pleasing.

I've been loving the little houses being made into quilts, check out this blog Jeanneke's Blog and scroll down the posts and you will see the gorgeous little house blocks and somewhere she has a link to a blog she set up specifically for the little houses quilts.  Whether or not you find the little houses blog or not, her blog has lots of beautiful eye candy, she loves to make quilts from lots of small, traditional blocks, so perfectly lovely!!  I am slowly becoming tempted to make a quilt from small blocks.  Also check out  Supergoof's Blog she makes such wonderful quilts, enjoy!

That's all for now.

Happy stitching,


  1. I love how your applique block is coming along--beautiful colors! And congrats on finishing your gorgeous yellow quilt. Simple is sometimes incredibly stunning!

  2. Your nine-patch is absolutely gorgeous, as well as the applique block. I am seriously green with envy over the 9-patch. :)

  3. A nice applique block. I have made some of the blocks from that same pattern. Still some to go.

  4. Your quilt is just beautiful - fabulous colours and quilting. I'm certain that you are thrilled.
