Are you going to show what you are making?

That was an email I got this AM from a lady who says she reads my blog every day. I thought I’d said that I would show the project when finished, but then thought no, I wanted to keep it a secret until the end, and then had to go back and read what I’d wrote so I knew for sure. I never said either way.

I just started these blocks on Monday and I have 11 finished blocks. Since I don’t have any patterns it’s a complicated process but so much fun. I draw the block in Electric Quilt, then make a sample based on the EQ drawing. Then I tweak the EQ if needed and then take all the notes I wrote while making the block and put them in Word.

I am also taking photos of each step in each block to use as my diagrams. The EQ block and my finished block sometimes don’t look anything alike, and my photos will show each step exactly as I did it, better than the usual EQ drawings.

So I have 11 blocks done but not all will go in my quilt. And I have more to make, and I have to decide how I want to lay them out. And then I will show something, but probably not all the blocks, just a teaser to get people interested.

In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of some of the fabrics I am using.


  1. Honestly Marge -- are you dangling fabrics in front of your readers? Those colors are great but they don't look like your normal choices! B.

  2. Glorious colors!!! Love them, looking forward to the next photos.
