Briar Rose, Quilt Top

I have been wanting to make a quilt for myself for a while now. But I could never decide on fabric. When I came across Heather Ross's Briar Rose it was like angels singing, and I knew I had found my fabric. I wonder does this happen to anyone else? Anyway, after much long and hard deliberation I decided to go with Camille Roskelley, Puddle Jumping quilt pattern. I thought it was a match made it quilt Heaven.

After I had all my blocks made I put them up on my design wall to figure out which one was going where and I just loved how it looked. So I decided to skip the sashing and add another row of blocks along the bottom to make a nice sized throw.

I hope to finish this up in the next couple of weeks, if my girl's will let me. I can't wait to use it!

Eccentric Star

Hello! Today I wanted to show you the latest quilt block that I have been working on. Eccentric Star. Which I think is the perfect name. It's made using mostly half square triangles. It's really simple to make.

It's something a little different than your average star block. You can totaly change the look of it by using two different prints. But I think I like it best with just one. What do you think? Bet it be cute scrappy too. 

Thanks so much for reading my very first post! Hope to see ya again!
