Sajou Quiltalong

I put a little teaser on the Humble Quilts facebook group and everyone got so excited, so here we go!

I'm using a variety of French General fabrics and the name of the quilt is from the cutest shop we visited in Paris.

  Actually I think Sajou is the owners name, but for now it is the title of our little quilt. 
I was here with my daughter (taking the photo) and two friends! One is Cecile!

I mentioned awhile before we will be doing a medallion- it's a small one and isn't like most of the little quiltalongs I've done. But that is what is fun with a little quilt- small commitment!! 
Time to dig into your stash.

This is my center and I drew colors for the rest of the quilt from this. 

Any of these would make a fun center. 

These are the bits and pieces I used for mine. The stripe really adds pizzazz so find something similar if you can.

Here are my other pieces of mediums and a wee bit of dark. You don't need much.

Here are the lights I used.

My quilt is only 18" square. You may opt to keep adding borders to make it a wee bit larger though.
And here is my Instagram for this week!

Have an excellent weekend!

Welcome Autumn!

Summer ended fast! Although we will get to the high 70's today it was in the 30's last night! I'm always sad to say good bye to summer, but always fun to see the fall quilts too. Here's a sampling of what's going on at my house.

 Designed by Primitive Pieces by Lynda
Round Robin
Last years large Humble Quilts quiltalong designed by Jan Patek called Fall Festival

Sampler signature quilt for my 50th birthday. 


Does it feel like fall in your neck of the woods?

Finally on a Friday

I'm so glad to be back to posting, hopefully on a normal schedule again.
I  suggested you try and get your 2 parts of the Liberty quilt together. I took my own advice!

It isn't the best photo, but the bottom row is all that's left! Whoop! Whoop! Next Friday we will have a linky party and see how everyone is doing. Monday October 1st will be the final instructions!! Cheri would be so proud of your creativity!


I won this cute panel to make a fall/halloween banner from Quilters Coop. I haven't had a chance to look online and see how I am supposed to do it! Any thoughts?

Here's my instagram for the last week.

If you'd like to see how I'm staying active this late summer check it out HERE. I've had a blast and can do way more than I think I'm capable of doing. I bet you can too!

I signed up for a half marathon many months ago and although I haven't been running a lot race day is here! 

Take care lovely friends and enjoy your weekend.
