Dapple - a Floating Square Score

Image
Dapple - a Floating Square Score 43" x 43" Spiral quilting with Aurifil thread. Recently we had a sew day at the museum working on improv. We were lucky enough to have Sherri Lynn Wood stop by on her cross country book tour and give a talk. We were really inspired by her book and wanted to try one of the scores.  You can read more about her visit HERE.  It was exciting to be a little part in having her visit us. My piece took on a life of it's own when the flower print kept falling off the shelf. Have you ever been chosen by a fabric?  I think this one wanted to be in this one for sure. :) This is a sample of all the floating square scores from several that came to the Improv Sewing day.  What a great mix of color and design. Literally ....floating squares!!! Someone had to say it Linking up with Finish it up Friday @ crazy mom quilts

Exhibit by Eye Candy Quilts I have been away for some time but I have been sewing.  I jumped into doing this adorable block swap at LQS Crafthouse.  The pattern is super fun to do and the fabric bundles to choose from were too irresistible!  So here are a couple of the blocks from one bundle. (I have another to make up yet) I started the month helping at the county fair. That is a fun but tiring endeavor. Hot and muggy most of the fair week.   Placed a blue on my Hillside houses and it won a cash award and certificate, and I placed a  blue on my Off-Kilter Sunrise Sunset quilt.
And....My friend Jennifer, entered our SuperNova Friendship swap quilt and won the choice of the local Modern Quilt Group.  I made the ribbon which is a mini of the guilds logo.

While at the fair, a couple charity quilting groups came in to spend their days quilting. I agreed to help quilt on my home machine several of the quilt sandwiches they had put together. I started on Wed and by Friday was on my 7th one. :…
