Midweek Makers 109

Wow! It's the end of the month already, and we're at the fifth Midweek Makers for the year - how time flies!

I have great news to share - the improv striped hearts have a new design! Here's a sneak peek,

improv stripes and hearts

as this is about as far as I got. Still working out all the details, but this really has fabulous potential! I do want to thank everyone who left encouraging comments, as I certainly needed them. I'll admit there was a lot of procrastination on what to do with the blocks, probably because I didn't have that part figured out in my head. And that's how designing works sometimes.

And how about a review of other shares from last week? I certainly fell in love with these three -

from Celine at Accroquilt, these pretty applique blocks for a Secret Garden quilt,


these incredibly adorable reindeer from Dreamworthy Quilts,


and because I'm in the mood for hearts, check out these fun scrap pieced ones from Dione at Clever Chameleon Quilting.

Here's the 'Feature' button for these beauties!

  1. Those hearts are adorable. Love the strips.

  2. Well I never saw that improv-pieced fabric in a Valentine quilt! Cool. And yes, I love Dione's hearts too!

  3. That is a great solution for the improve blocks. I have been following the reindeer and thought they were so cute. I love those hearts too. The applique blocks are beautiful - so much work in them.

  4. I loved all the different layouts from the previous post, but seeing the blocks with the black borders...YES! Can't wait to see where it is going :)

    1. Totally agree - it sings! Now to figure out complementary quilting, which isn't off to a good start.

  5. Yes - I agree with Tish! Those black borders are perfect! Thank you for hosting and sharing!

    1. Thanks! They were the right choice, as the piece is now striking - hope to show it off on Monday

  6. Those hearts look adorable with the black borders!

    1. Thank you! This one is now a winner! So much so, that I'm considering writing a pattern - can't go wrong with easy and stunning!

  7. Wow. That project has evolved since I last checked in! Love it, and thank you for sharing the process as you go along. Enjoying it immensely.


Thank you so much for just made my day!
