Circa 2016 and quilt show pictures

I'm really trying to keep current with the new Circa 2016 quilt from Temecula Quilts so when Claire came over to sew today, they were first on my list. Of course I had to make an extra broken dishes block since they changed the requirements!!

I love this blue which I got at JJ Stitches

Then I finished some appliqué for the 1857 project:

I ran out of the Kona snow so I'm stuck waiting for my delivery from Whittle's (thank you, DarLynn!) at only $5/yd!

I went to the local guild's show yesterday and saw a number of inspiring quilts. 

Isn't this a great use of hexies?  Very cute

This is Claire's quilt. I love it!!

I think this is a great use of homespuns!

We had the kids this weekend and had a very busy couple of days!
The little car that Emma is playing with is from my 28 yr old son's Chevron car collection. Remember those??

Thomas the Train is Jack's favorite!

Ryan will soon have his training wheels off. 


  1. I love that blue, too.
    I really like the homespun quilt.
    Busy, but good times with the grands!

  2. Thank you for sharing Randy ! The quilt with hexies is incredible.....
    Your grandchildren are soooo sweet....enjoy !

  3. I love Claire's quilt borders treatment. So unusual and interesting. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the grandkids. ;^)

  4. OH my, I can't believe you got any sewing done with 3 adorable grandchildren around. I love the little Circa 2016 blocks. I am not as tempted to start those as I am the 1857 applique from Gay. Yours is beautiful. Hmmm?

  5. Fun you got to sew with Claire!
