Handful of Scraps, Postage Stamp Quilt, quilts, Wagon’s West (dresden plates)

Trying to get this whole border for the  Postage Stamp quilt  in for a photo – almost impossible – but not quite!


A little more of a close up – I’m actually still working on the cluster at the left – I barely touched it this week so far – have been busy with other things.  I really liked the Misty Fuse that I am using as the fusible on this last cluster of flowers and will keep using it.  Soft, easy to stitch, no sticky needles, and nothing has come loose.


A little more on the new quilt – is there a name for this block – I’m sure I have seen it before – it isn’t the OMG quilt by Sue Garmen is it – I need to look – that one had been on my list for awhile maybe it stuck in my mind LOL.  I will need to be careful of color placement – the print at the top right has too much white in it so need to watch out for that – these blocks well finish at 4 inches – they are just on the design wall now so I can change things around as I want.


Prepping one more flower cluster then I will have two “flowers” to work on for Handful of Scraps.


The Wagon’s West wheel I am working on


Not too much longer before it will be rolled down once again.


And the weather – what can I say but HOT and HUMID – I have barely been sitting on the porch this week!!

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    I’ve always known that block as a Jacob’s Ladde block!

    I agree….I have always known it as Jacob’s Ladder as well….that is really an old pattern….it is looking good!
    Your appliqué flower border is so pretty …love all the cheerful colors!!
    Wagons West is coming right along!
    Hot and humid here in Virginia too…downright muggy!! Ugh!! Tomorrow is supposed to be a lot cooler, but rainy….we could actually use some rain, so I won’t complain….

    Maria and Sandra you both are right – I totally forgot it was Jacob’s Ladder no wonder it seemed so familiar I did make a quilt with that pattern years ago! — thanks – Karen

    It has gotten hot and humid here too. We had to close the windows yesterday afternoon. I was very sad.

    Your Jacobs ladder blocks look like butterflies flitting across a garden.

    Loving all the variety and progress on your current projects 🙂 Has been very hot and humid here… I have several fans going when I am working in my florida room on Brandi’s quilt or sitting at my computer… but have also been enjoying piecing and doing a bit of housework inside in the air con! 🙂 lol Kathi

    It’s not the OMG quilt – too big! I had that pattern but passed it along to someone in my guild as I just didn’t have the energy to make such tiny blocks over and over. Your blocks are a fresh take on the traditional Jacob’s Ladder – very pretty!
