Make a Wish and Blow!

I was at our wonderful LQS, Suzzie’s Quilt Shop, a few weeks ago and fell in love with this Martha Negley floral fabric… she is one of my favorite designers!!

Martha Negley Classics Dahlia Plum Cotton Fabric PWMN063-PLUM - HALF YARD

I found several fabrics in the shop that coordinated well with it, too!! My sister, Sally, bought me this one!


Even though the colors in the fabrics are not used in my house anywhere, I still found a few in my stash to go with them, too!!


And I had this cool pattern in my collection that I’d never made before, called “Easy Does It” by Darlene Zimmerman,  so I just HAD to get right on that!!


I am soooo happy with the final result!!!


This quilt is so pretty!!  I quilted it all over with a leaf motif!!


And I pieced the backing using up the leftover fabrics!  And I like that, too!!


Now I’m working on my Schnibble for February!!


What are you up to this weekend??? Yogi’s not working on much… LOL!!



  1. What gorgeous fabric, I would hate to cut into it...the quilt is lovely..know you will enjoy it..Yogi is so cute. Don't these little babies live in our hearts in the best way?? We have a malti poo and she is our baby, 7 mos. old, spoiled to death already..have a great weekend.

  2. "Easy Does It" is so bright and pretty -- and all of my favorite colors too! Man, I wish I could sleep like Yogi! I'm suffering with a thoracic outlet syndrome flare-up and haven't been able to lay down, work at my desk or sleep for over a week now (shoveling too much snow did this to me).

  3. That fabric combination is amazing! The back is lovely too.

  4. Those are some beautiful colors!

  5. I really love the colours and fabrics Polly and they have all gone together beautifully in your quilt.......
    I see Yogi is enjoying a nice kip.......

  6. Your quilt is adorable and looks sensational in your home!

  7. I have a similar Martha Negley fabric in the same colorway and it's one of my favorite fabrics in my stash. So much so that I haven't been able to make myself cut it up. I love what you made with your's.

  8. Wow, that goes with your dining room so well!!! Just beautiful and ready for Spring. I put together a Schnibble called Dulcinea this week, using two charm packs I had - Lovely by Sandy Gervais for Moda. Of course I cannot find any yardage out there to complete the borders so will have to dig deep to see what I can use. I really loved sewing those little pinwheel blocks while watching the snow come down. Lovely weather for sewing. Hugs to Yogi - I just love him to pieces from afar. Judy C in NC

  9. The colors and style of fabric is terrific. Simple quilt pattern, that lets the fabric do its magic. I really love your choice of fabrics. I can see why you are so pleased with the results. Cheers. Lauren

  10. Beautiful fabric so nice and bright telling us spring will come and I love the pattern. Stay warm.
