I fall to pieces...

Don't we all?  I love piecing blocks.  This is today's block:

Corn and Beans

Yesterday I commented/emailed photos to the Quilty Pleasures blog regarding using browns in our quilts.  Do you or don't you?  And why?  I use a lot of browns in my quilts.  More often than not, I'm drawn to fall/harvest colored fabrics.

I also said that I very seldom used black fabric.  Here's an exception to that--a quilt for my grandson, finished in 2012, using black fabrics in blocks from the 501 Quilt Blocks Project.  And though the free motion quilting is far from perfect, I quilted it myself on my home sewing machine, Janome Memory Craft 6600.

Hope you have a good day.

  1. What a gorgeous quilt! The range of black and grey with red is simply stunning here. I have seldom seen black used as sashing, but I think it makes it very cohesive. You should be quite proud of this beauty!
