Swap progress

I made this group for my placemat swap. I am exchanging them with Jessica. She has a little boy and the car one is for him.

This quilt is a wonky log cabin.

Here is the one for the 3 year old boy

dots in applique.. what can I say??

This is a pin cushion. I love the button!! It is ceramic.

This is a block for Claudia in my Bee modern swap. I had wanted to make a sawtooth star in solids with the corners these four blocks. However, it just didn't look right. So I took it apart and sewed the four blocks together and made this wonky block.

This is the same fabric and I think my favorite of the bunch. It is raw edged applique and I added some of my own fabrics. Especially the yellow, to make it pop.

This is the last block. It is a modified log cabin and a flower appliqued in the corner. I like the addition of the other fabrics.

These are the things I have been working on. I still have not quilted the improv block quilt yet. I have a plan yet for it...... however, it will have to wait......


  1. Hi, Mary...thanks for visiting my to the "teeth" ingredient, I don't know for sure what I am going to brainstorming with myself what things have teeth!! Cogs, combs, rakes, people, animals, Any ideas??? I love your placemats!

  2. I love L.O.V.E. that tree block! It looks appliqued on the block? Its fantastic! Thanks for stopping by and adding your link! -Allison

  3. Mary, all of this is just so happy~!!~ just the shot in the arm i needed this a.m.~!!~ i remember seeing your gorgeous little pincushion on flickr but don't think i've seen the other amazing bits . . . you have been very busy~!~
    i think that little stop light on the child's placemat is a fantastic little touch and love the appliqued dots over the pieced strips~!!~
    your wonky log cabins continue to grab my attention as a great way to use some of my scrap bag skinny strips ~ maybe one of these days i'll be able to get back to my scrap management project and incorporate this idea into some finished work of my own . . . i am really missing the daily time i was spending on that and hope to be back to it within a couple of weeks . . .
    that appliqued tree is such a sweet summery piece~i just love it~!~

    thank you for your visits to my blog and please know that your thoughts and prayers are very appreciated. i will gradually get things back on track . . . i think i can . . . i think i can . . i think i can . . .
