Tie One On Blog Hop – Day 6
I hope that you are enjoying the Tie One On Blog Hop. Welcome to Day 6! There have been so many great projects, haven’t there?
I am really digging the boldness of today’s quilt by Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill from Whole Circle Studio! I didn’t really know Sheri except for the glories of her Instagram feed before inviting her to the Hop. Her strong sense of design is fantastic. Sheri’s work really epitomizes what we are calling “Modern Quilting” these days. I have been told in the past that Modern Quilters “don’t use” batiks. Which is exactly why I asked Sheri to be a part of the Tie One On Blog Hop. I really want this line (and future lines) to be something that everyone can use (including “Modern Quilters”) on its own as well as mix with other fabrics. I was delighted to see her create this modern, piercing graphic version of her Sew Speedy Pattern. (pun intended!) 🙂
Love how my fabric reads against the solid white background. I am going to try to make a couple of these needles for a studio quilt myself! And maybe one for a friend!
Be sure to go over to Sheri’s blog post and read about the pattern, the fabric, and a few of her thoughts about it all.
Today’s “In-House” Photo Time
Let’s start with this photo of an assortment of random patchworks, my Aurifil thread collection, and my version of Minki Kim‘s Aurifil Designer of the Month Block for May. You can get the pattern here.
Then next is my Fall/Autumn/Slightly Halloween quilt using parts of my upcoming pattern, Stoneybrek. My pattern writing mojo has been off kilter all summer, and I am sad to say that this pattern which I was planning on having available in August is still on the drawing/writing board. I promise the pattern is coming, but life just brought a long list of interruptions this summer. Current hopeful timeline is November at the latest. Hopefully Sooner.
Stoneybrek is a Row by Row quilt with more rows than pictured here, but the beauty is in that you can combine the rows in multiple ways with a 12″ repeat.
That’s it for today. I am trying to wrap up sewing at least the quilt top for a little wallhanging that no one has seen yet for Day 9. So kind of short on time to write.
But I sure hope you are enjoying the trip with these magnificent Hoppers as much as I am!
