Dreaming and Stitching

It's been a week of dreaming about several new quilt designs as I stitched on some current quilt projects.
It was a rainy and damp week here, so I had the wood stove going as I stitched my days away...

These are some of the Black & White fabrics that are part of my stash.
I would love to design another quilt using these.
Add a splash of colour for an instant fun quilt!
I thought of a really good design idea to make 'personalized' lap quilts, that I'd like to share through my free Block of the Month.
I'm not sure if I can afford the time to create the templates for the 26 different versions required.
I've not decided yet.

This chain of blue & white patches is what was under my needle, while I thought about it.

This patch got all twisty - like a roller coaster - while I was preparing it for applique.

It's been more than a few decades since I purchase this pretty print...and it's still one of my favourite fabrics.
It's going to be part of two more of my upcoming quilts, including the one I worked on this week!
Can you guess yet which quilt I've been stitching?

My Blue & White Tiles series!
On my design wall ~ 4 blocks of the Blue & White Tiles quilt.
That pretty blue & white print I showed above is in the center of my newest block...the one on the bottom left.

The Block #4 pattern is now available online here.
Still time to catch up and stitch along!

A few days ago I thought of another quilt design that kept buzzing around in my brain.
I needed to do some puzzling to see if it would work, and considered going for a forest walk to do it, but it was a full on rainy I decided to do some machine stitching while I thought it out.
I got the Row 8 Stained Glass Diamond Strings blocks done, all trimmed and ready to stitch together.
And the design I was puzzling is even better and not really the same as it was originally.

Stay tuned for more fun stitching to come!!
