Ok sometimes in an Apartment,  only the floor can give a first look at a piece.
This is the third cutting of the Patch!  The Blue was not dark enough!
So this got used in pieces.  
This Patch is Removal from the Quilt! 
Well, not to Happy with my Version!  Maybe I should take the Patch with me. 
I worked hard on this.  I have no familiarity with the language. Over the years, I have asked teachers with relatives from these areas.  I have even worked with people from some of the countries.  They all have said the same thing --- Forget it's too hard.   Then the next words - English toughest language to learn.   Well?    I have no answer.  I worked hard on the sewing of the words.  Practiced too.  
Maybe I will make another Patch Just for me and take my time with each piece. 

I do hope they think it is at least Ok! 
Next the My Quilt and the My Bags for etsy Shop.
Well Hello!   Just got back from shopping and thought I would post these photos of the finished Quilts.  you can see them on top of each other and the backs and the fact that both contain some of the same fabric.

I must say the KA Quilt is mostly Northcott Stonehenge Fat Quarter, Copper Penny and Cool Water, and Shades of Grey and Garden Party and Crayon Box and Metallics and Yardage.
KA is also the first time I used the Benartex Bali Batik Fat Quarters.  Moda fabric can be seen as the 2 inch square black and White small centers in some of the Squares which all are made at 12 inches.

No, I do not do traditional binding.  I have and know the bias method.   Maybe a will splurge on a Simplicity binding machine.

See the Moda Shades of Black Mini Charm Square? ........................
You can see the Rich  Kona Dark Brown Yardage used on the back of the Disappearing Nine Patch and the Binding of the 12 inch Square quilt.

Both are very colorful and I have a love of ZigZag stitching.  Guess my Trademark.

Now I need my own Quilt and I am starting it tomorrow.   
Hi! Everyone!   Here is one of the Quilts On the Bed.   It is the Nine Patch, Disappearing Quilt.   It is the first quilt that I have ever decorated the back.
Gosh Darn!  Even after all the measuring and figuring and fumbling and needle pokes -- It is not a quilt to be hung on a Rod for admiration.   Yes.  it has a wobble.   But the Bed Makes it Perfect.  
I will photograph some of my Moleskine Thinking and Planning Book.  You will not believe my Moleskine.

It is wonderful to be back blogging and I have popped in on Facebook so please see me there too!  I am going to to see about having a Facebook page just for my Crafts of Sewing and Drawing and Painting.   I have a full schedule planned for Spring and Summer.

Now, to show you another Photo of this Quilt.
I promised yo a photo from my Moleskine.   Well, See I planned.  My plans just sometime take their on path.  I will make another like it and make it stick to the Plan.    Oh, yes on the other page is the back.  Will show you later today.   Now it is time to go for supplies of food and Coffee.  Everyone have a a Wonderful Great Day!!   

Hello, Everyone!   I know I owe you all an apology!  I have not quit quilting.  However, 
Ms Patches!  Has gone to the Rainbow and I have asked Her to save me spot, just a tiny place will be perfect!  I miss Her so much. 
I do not know why I stopped blogging.  I guess I just wanted the time with Ms Patches. 
What a time a We had together.  So Much.   Yes, I am still crying!  I will forever and it hurts, my head just seems to tighten and swell and become pressurized as tears leak out my eyes and my nose begins to run. Then the awful pressure at the base of the neck.  
The Love for a Cat!  A long hair simple American Cat.  No special, except I caught Her with a bowl of milk.   
What a life from a Bowl of Milk, sweet Milk.   It comes in the Blue Carton.
I hope Ms Patches do
We did a lot of cuddling!  Those Paws!  She would wake me by gently placing Her paw on my Eyes.
Never a scratch and she had Claws. 
Loving you forever.

Inspecting the quilt end of October and first of November.  Our last inspection together. 
Well, I know she does not want me to stay dormant.  Just missing such a Grand Presence.
Love Always your Human Pet.
