I'm still playing!

This is the little sign that's on the door into my sewing room, just for fun.

(oops....it's a bit blurry and crooked....but, oh well.)   I love playing in my "Sandbox" and I have lots of fun toys in there too. 
 Come on in and I'll share some of my "playing" with you!

I love batiks!  and this is a Bali Pops from Hoffman Fabrics in California called Zinfandel.  I found another perfect batik to go with the strips.  The picture just doesn't do them justice!  They are way more vibrant than the picture.

Last September I won a great CT Publishing Giveaway and received some of Alex Anderson's fabrics and her latest 4 books for easy strip quilts.   One of the patterns in one of the books gave me the inspiration to do some "fun playing" with these batik strips. 

So........I'm still sewing away and "playing!" 

Love the easy strip piecing and sewing!  WhooHoo!  This is one of those times when the humming and rhythm of the sewing machine works its magic on my attitude.....especially when I'm HOT!     I'm just sharing some of the WIP (work in progress) with ya'll.  
Here's some of the partial blocks.

And another set of partial blocks.

I'll show more when more of it is finished.

Want to come "play" with me?  I'll even share some of my toys. 

Thanks for visiting.


  1. I will be right over....I so love batiks as well.

  2. Those pinks are pretty enough to play with all day!

  3. It is going to be so pretty when it is done!

  4. I think if Braveheart has a sandbox, you should too!

    The block is gorgeous!
