Random...

February means a new block for the Mid-Century Modern Bee...
Cindy chose a great traditional block...the Winged Square block

 
my block is predominantly made of Denyse Schmidt fabrics, but I chose this great Kokka bug for the center square...


And I have had a request to sew a pickle-dish with a few folks...of course pickle-dish is one of my all time favorites!


I have done a couple of these...


and one for Clare...

 
 me thinks this one will be from Denyse Schmidt's new line Shelburne Falls...


happy thursday!

  1. Pickle dish = LOVE! The pickle dish quilts you've already made are so pretty, and the one with Shelburne Falls is going to be SO sweet! Love the bee block, too. That's the only way I like bugs--when they're in fabric. ;)

  2. Dumb question of the day, but since I have never made one, is a pickle dish more like a Dresden plate quilt or wedding ring quilt?

  4. I love the pickledish, the hand quilted one looked amazing! And same questions as Miss Shay, I couldn't decide if it was more dresden or wedding ring. : )

  9. Miss Shay, not a dumb question at all...in fact it is brilliant! I would have to say it is a combination. It is pieced much like the wedding ring but the blades are long {at least mine will be - they can be different} and there is a center "eye" like the center circle in the Dresden! Brilliant!

  10. Elizabeth, I have used Kathy Doughty's the large quilt that I kept for myself...tee hee! And then Kaffe Fassett's for Clare's. But I have also played around with templates from the Electric Quilt Program.

  13. That big bug is so fabulous in the centre of the block. I just received my Shelbirne Falls fabric last night, and sbsolutely love these fabrics! A pickle dish will be brilliant! I'm curious which pattern you preferred to make.

  22. Your stag beetle block is awesome !

    And I adore your pickle dish quilt - loved it so much that I think it was when I first got into conversation with you Mary - love it even more for that!

  23. Oh...you've done Gypsy kisses! I love your hand quilting on the one with the light background and centers. Did you make them king sized, as the pattern is written, or did you down-size it somehow?

    ReplyDelete
  24. When I saw Denyse's new line of fabric it just scream "Make a Pickle dish quilt" to me. So I am going to make the Gypsy kisses. Just trying to decide on background fabrics. Have you picked yours yet?
