I am working on a quilt with 52 blocks, each with 4 half-square triangles and 4 hourglass blocks plus a plain square in the middle. All the hourglass blocks have four colors laid out the same in each block so I can't do the shortcut method but have to sew all the triangles separately. That's a lot of triangles!
I usually do a lot of chain-piecing but even that is taking a long time, so I'm doing some chain-piecing and then taking a break to make a few blocks. It's going to be wonderful

I used black Hobbs 80/20 batting, red thread to outline the poppies, black thread on the black fabric, green thread on the green fabric. On the face of the quilt the poppies
I just finished this king size quilt - I pieced the top and had a gal with a long arm quilt it for me. Unfortunately we did not like the colors in our blue bedroom so our oldest daughter is delighted to have it for her guest bedroom in a house she just bought!

I am looking for the attached fabric. It is RJR fabric, Sew Heavenly. The small circle is 5/8 inches and the largest is 1 and 5/8 inches.
I would like 1 to 2 yards, even if is fat quarters.

I keep mine in an accordion file. I labelled each pocket by type for easy reference. I don't usually cut patterns out of my magazines because I find my tastes change and I like to look at them whenever I need inspiration.

A wonderful way to use scraps to make a beautiful quilt! I love her corner stones and sashings. This one is certainly one I want to make for myself
My mother has finally given up sewing (at 86) and would like me to sell her Bernina. It has many accessories, case, manual, etc. Any idea how much I should be asking? It must be 5-6 years old by now, maybe more.
