Sunday Stash (Looking Glass 2.0)


It's been a while.....hey that's a song.  Don't ask me who it is by, but I can sing the beginning of it to you.  And you know what?  I'm going to admit that I haven't had much time to read other blogs either.

I have made some strides in a few quilts I have been working on

In Order I have Mom's Quilt Meadow Mist Designs which is known as Looking Glass, The next is Snowflake Shimmer pieces, and last Check Plus also by Meadow Mist Designs. I promise I'm not a stalker Cheryl.  I just love your quilt designs.

Interestingly enough, I have a student in class that is a quilter and after announcing to my students that I quilt, she approached me about it in a healthy discussion. She brought pictures for me to see and she has some really awesome and funny/cute applique.  I encouraged her to enter them into a quilt show.

Times are a little tough at work and leave me with very little time.  I have to do a quick shout out, and I promise there is a "One Lovely Blog" post coming soon Lisa at Sunlight in Winter Quilts nominated me.  Better late than never I guess...though that is not like me.

Last but not least my Sunday Stash pic......yep again Looking Glass 2.0

The line is called Peacock and I found this background fabric local.  I loved how my mother's quilt turned out, so I am making one for me. I am hoping actually that my daughter loves it and I plan to give it to her.

That's it...out of time and out of lines.  Short Sweet and to the Point.

Today I am linking up with  Molli Sparkles Sunday Stash
And Beth at Main Crush Monday


  1. I know batiks aren't always popular, but I'm still a fan of the brightly coloured ones! I think they create such a rich tapestry of colour when they are super saturated like these. Good find!

  2. I do believe the band you are looking for is Staind ;) Even though it's been a long past few weeks, you really have accomplished quite a bit. I think the purple feather looking batik print will look great with the Peacock batiks.

  3. Life can be a balancing act. Glad you're finding time to think quilts! Looking good!

  4. Real life has a way of interrupting what is preferred life doesn't it ?

  5. I love that purple background. It's going to look stunning with the other batiks.

  6. Purple and green are a favorite combo of mine. And Cheryl is a favorite designer / pattern writer too! You can't go wrong there Dave.
    Hope life gets a little less hectic for you!

  7. Cheryl has some really nice patterns. I LOVE the batiks.
