Tuesday Fun

Monica's second quilt

Monica's First Quilt
So, I've mentioned before that I am teaching my friend Monica to quilt. We've been taking our time working on her first quilt, when she decided she wanted to make a second quilt as a Birthday gift for her Sister. So, we put the first on hold (the PINK BROWN CIRCLE QUILT ABOVE), to whip up this lovely BLACK RED & WHITE QUILT. She took her inspiration from the Material Obsession book, and I am loving the Black sashing around the big blocks. I have to say, I am loving having SOMEONE to quilt along with. Maybe that's why I started to blog. Everyone needs a community to share in things they love.

I've been working along beside her, guiding her, and I've completed the 9 patches for the Grad quilt. I've made enough patches for 2 quilts, So I have one to keep. I really love it!


Also I've been working on a little something,

here's a peek.
I can't show you because The person who will get this, reads my blog...

Ah, Time will tell.


  1. I love the read and black one! But I really love the orange and pink circle one. I can hardly wait to see your patchwork quilt finished.

    Lucky you having someone to quilt with.

  2. I love the pink and brown quilt, I love the colors and the desing. Those 9 patches look great! Can't wait to see the finished surprise!

  3. (-patches are sort of addictive...

    Monica.. your quilts are wonderful! You must not have needed much teaching.. you look like an expert already. :-)

  6. These are so cute, especially the stripes and dots....love it! It really is fun to have a friend to quilt with. I am going to my hometown this weekend to quilt with my sisters and mom.
