Small Quilt Project Heaven, Art Quilt Piecing.

The little Prince plays, he's almost 3 months old.

Another 'liberated' butterfly small quilt, blocks are 4 1/2 x 2 1/2".

'Sew Charming' a book full of small quilt ideas!

New strip fabric and blocks for art quilt.

Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, windy and sunny.

We ate lunch at The Old Salt in Hampton, New Hampshire.

Hello from balmy New Hampshire!

It's warmed up and rain has melted most of the snow. The sun came out today and so off to the beach to see the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic is beautiful but disorienting for me because I'm so used to the ocean ( the Pacific Ocean) being in the west. We ate lunch at 'The Old Salt' a famous restaurant. It's been around for a long time and many visiting dignitaries have eaten there too. Their pictures were up on the walls. The food was excellent, I had pastrami on rye with tomato melt with sweet potato fries and a pickle.

I'm continuing experimenting with 'liberated' butterfly blocks, this time using a rectangular block in red and white.  I like the look, more to come.
Art quilt components are coming together with strip fabric ready to be cut into blocks.

Then, since I have been on a small quilt run, I found this great book, Sew Charming, Scrappy Quilts from 5" Squares by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene, tons of inspiration! 

Hope you're all doing well this Wednesday.
I'll be by to visit!
