    I was browsing pictures of quilts on the internet and ran across one that I really liked! I liked it so much that I saved it as by desktop background. This quilt was called Toulouse and was by Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. I kept looking at it everyday and decided that I liked it enough that I wanted to make it. I started out making the cute little 9 patches and worked from there. I’ve only gotten three of the 15″ blocks made so far, but I really am happy with them. It was after I had made these three that I discovered that the name of this block is Goose In The Pond. I think it’s my favorite!

    I am working on a English Paper Pieced hexagon quilt right now. I was inspired by the recent popularity of hexagons in quilting – they’re everywhere! I love doing needlework by hand, it is so relaxing!

  35. Carol Crisp says:

    I’m doing something a bit different for me anyway…. doing four of the same wall hanging , but varying them by using different combinations of the borders and sashing. Quite amazing how small differences in value and color can change the entire personality of the wallhanging!

  36. Robyn Brown says:

    I have been working fast and furious to finish up the UFO’s that have accumulated in the sewing room. But, I’m headed off to visit my daughter for a week and needed a take-a-long project. I’m starting some hexagon English paper piecing. Fiskars has a great paper punch that creates 2″ hexies. I’ve taken a charm pack and cut the 5″ squares into 2 1/2″ squares and I’ll use those for the project. Figure it will take me quite some time but it will be a portable project that can go anywhere with me.
