Finished EPP top...and in-progress one!

So I finally finished piecing the rainbow stars and text print quilt top.  Actually, it was done at Christmas but I didn't have a chance to photo measures 48" x 54".  It will be a wall hanging in my classroom as soon as I quilt it...

And an up-close shot...The text prints were purchased mostly from my LQS Quiltique and some from online shops--Etsy, most likely.  The diamonds and hexagons are all 2"--purchased from

And the next one, an in-progress quilt top...all 2" diamonds and Kaffe fabrics....

I really need to figure out a good way to take pics in the backyard.  Or maybe I need to go to the park down the street??  The reality of this shoot was a clothesline strung between a ladder and a palm tree.  LOL....I've never even seen a live clothesline before!!  It sags....??  Darn it, still working on the photography....

Happy Quilting!


  1. Stunning! Such a bright and happy quilt.

  2. Yummy Kaffe quilt! So fun with the polka dots. And for photography...maybe time to invest in a stand?!?

  3. Those are a lot of hard work. Both are very pretty!

  4. I am delighted to have found your amazing blog. That quilt is gorgeous. I've never seen that pattern. It looks hard, but I find that even if something looks hard when you break it down into small steps it always turns out fine. Of course you being a math teacher you are not at all intimidated by all of those angles :) I love the happy colors and the newsprint . . . they are so suited to one another. I started quilting around a year and a half ago . . . once you have been bit by the quilting bug there's is no turning back.
