Squeals of Delight

It was about a year ago that I purchased this fabric.

I just loved the colours and the texture of the fabric.  I had been looking for a pattern - something that would show off this fabric.  I just knew that I didn't want to cut it up in little pieces.  It just wouldn't do the lovely designs justice if I did that.  

Last summer I found a pattern in the Fons and Porter magazine.  It was one that Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts designed.  It has been on my list of quilts to do and this fabric is the perfect choice.

This weekend I was able to get a fair amount of quilting done and am 'squealing with delight' as to how much I accomplished and how my quilt is starting to turn out.  I would recommend this block to anyone.  It's fun, quick and has lots of impact.

Still a few more blocks to make.  Supper is finished, laundry is done and my Calligraphy for convocation is finished so I'm heading downstairs for more sewing machine time.

Hope everyone had a great long weekend.  

Enjoy your week!



  1. Does the pattern ever compliment those fabrics! Beautiful.

  2. This quilt is going to be amazing! I love the way the blocks accentuate the fabric.
