New quilt project!

Last week I have been sick with bronchitis, could not sew, but did work on a sketch for my next quilt. I have some homespun plaids from 15 yrs ago. After seeing the Kim Diehl "Simple Comforts" pics on someone's post, I remembered my plaids. I have recently done some wool applique and want to combine applique with a sampler quilt. I have not ordered the book, instead I have been creating my own design using plaids, wool and some small prints.

I hope you can see the pencil sketch. Not sure when I will start, but all fabrics are washed, dryed, folded and ready to start. I will hand quilt this one. Size according to my block size will be 84x84 and I might add prairie points for my edge design. I need to find a couple more dark prints before starting.
The design phase is the most fun for me because with a good plan, cutting and sewing are relaxing and good therapy. I will hand quilt after our kiddos move so I will have a project to take with me when I stay to get my Alex and Payten fix and good times with Allison and Nick.


  1. Glad you're feeling better. The sketch promises a stunning quilt. Love the squirrel.

  2. Great sketch, whoa that is detailed. Beautiful colors.
    Enjoyed the quilt show pics too!

  3. What a beautiful quilt this will be. I am visiting today through Quilty Chick, as well as a new follower of yours. :o) I am very new at quilting, so if you drop by for a visit, don't look too closely. :o)
    Have a nice day.
