Four More Blocks and A Lot More Fabric

I finished two more blocks for my Ruffled Feathers quilt tonight, which means I just have four more blocks to assemble. I’m looking forward to wrapping this up this weekend and moving onto the next project. Still haven’t decided what that’s going to be.

I received an order of fabric yesterday and another one today.

Yesterday’s order was these fabrics, mostly in the black color way. These will eventually be made into a quilt, along with all the other back color way fabrics I have.

The two fabrics at the right of the top row will not actually be in this quilt. They just happened to be in the same order. I just LOVE these fabrics! It’s a different feel for me, but the pops of color are right up my alley.

Look at the detail in this new KFC Agate fabric, designed by my pal Philip Jacobs. If you haven’t seen this fabric in person you really need to. it’s so incredible.

Bender likes it too!

These are the fabrics that came today. I’ve wanted some of this older Kaffe map fabric for several years. I found some on Etsy the other day for a price that was pretty reasonable, so I ordered a yard of each. No idea what I’m going to do with these, but I’m happy to have them in my stash!

By the end of the work day today Rico was ready for some action. He was looking at me and I asked him if he wanted to go out and play and this was his response…

I’m looking forward to a long holiday weekend. I’m a little sad, though, because this is the time of year that I usually take my vacation. I’m really missing my friends and a little different view.

      1. Tomorrow my two friends have decided to make a field trip to Michael’s – and we are so excited! It’s so nice to have something to look forward too! I think that the hardest thing for us is the sameness of the days and that the time goes by so fast. The prospect of being out of our apts and out into the world is almost overwhelming. Our lives are just so different now. Thank heavens I’m a quilter. It helps me keep my sanity

      2. It is nice to get out, but so different now that we have to do so much prep to do it. I actually went and did some dog training with some friends last night and then we had a pot luck dinner. There were two people there I hadn’t seen in months. We were all very careful, kept our space, were outdoors the entire time, and wore our masks when we weren’t eating. It was so nice to have a little bit of normalcy.


  1. That KFC Agate fabric is wonderful! Don’t you just love getting fabric packages in the mail? I seem to be out of my “slump”, as I started AND completed a star wall quilt this past week. Now I’m anxious to work on a Kaffe quilt kit that I purchased a while back. It feels so good to be excited about working on a new project again!


  2. Sending love from Australia……Thank you for your blog and your inspirational colours..

    You’re not alone with the occasional bout of the blues. Yesterday I talked to a friend in Melbourne….she can legally only travel 5kilometres for essentials…..and I’m stuck on a rural hillside with no contact with anyone and all my obedience and tracking comps cancelled. So I haven’t had friends near me for a long time..

    My dogs, quilting, piano, garden, chickens and a messy country house are keeping me from total insanity. Thanks for your part in that ❤️❤️❤️

    1. We are having agility trials here, but I’m not ready to take on that level of risk yet. I do have a weekly private agility lesson (opted for that rather than going back to class), and I take a weekly sheep herding lesson. Those help keep me sane. But I’m not itching to get back into competition if I can continue to train.

      I also have a half acre and have a full set of agility equipment so can train at home. Can’t imagine not having the dogs. They help keep me sane.

      And really, it’s not the isolation that’s getting to me, it’s the sameness of every day… I’m just getting so bored of doing the same thing over and over.

      Thanks for reading and for taking the time to comment. Hang in there!
