I owe you some bee block show and tell. Back in December, Elizabeth asked us to make a 2-color sash. She wanted us to pick two rainbow colors (no black, white, or grey) and create a long skinny "sash" created of numerous improv components. Target 4”-6” wide and 30”-60” long.

I chose Kona Cerise and Peapod for my two colors and went to town. I had so much fun creating the components and piecing them together.

I started with a pair of improv triangles and some wonky strips.

This piece came from a tutorial by Cheryl Arkison, week one of her 2022 Quilters' Playcation Adventure Sew Along.

My full sash finished at approximately 6" x 60". I can't wait to see what Elizabeth does with her collection of sashes!

Update: Elizabeth finished her quilt!


In late September, Meaghan put out the call for participants to join her in making a collaborative quilt (which turned into two quilts) featuring Kona Pickle to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank. We were asked to each make a 12" finished quilt block featuring Kona Pickle.

Here's my contribution that I mailed off last week. I used my All About Angles technique to piece it with Kona Pickle, Cerise, Wasabi, Splash, and Celestial.

You can see the blocks that other folks contributed on the #TeamPickleQuilt hashtag on Instagram.


We are thirteen weeks into the Quilting the Countdown 100 day project. There are 8 days left until QuiltCon. I'm spending at least 15 minutes a day working on my Patchwork City blocks.

I finished two blocks this week. This brought me to 66 out of 75 blocks complete. These finished blocks are Kona Regal and Kona Oasis. I've made progress my last Flame block, which I think is the pickiest block I have left.

I'm hoping to crank out a block a day to finish all my blocks in the next 8 days. :-) Thanks for visiting!
