Ode To The Blue and Grey

Finally! I squeezed some much needed sewing time into this week so that I could finish piecing my new BOM quilt that starts in January. Ode to the Blue and Grey features fabrics from Marcus Brothers Fabric's Adelaide collection. When I saw this fabric collection I fell in love with it and knew immediately I wanted it for my 2011 Block of the Month quilt project.

Now I'm working on quilting it and thought I'd post some pictures so you can really get a good look at the fabric. Although Electric Quilt produces great images, there's nothing that compares to seeing a quilt done up in the actual fabric. I've only quilted three of the nine blocks so I do have quite a way to go. Better get back to work!

For more details on our BOM, visit or look for the previous flyer I posted here on my blog and/or on Facebook.

New Blocks for upcoming BOM


This weekend we are “babysitting” our daughter’s baby, Jack.  He gets along great with our Daisy whose mellow demeanor is a nice match for Jack’s lively personality.   Of course we are going to spoil him rotten!
