cappella

I ve been busy
sewing corners onto rectangles


sewing edges onto squares





making lots of peices

to create the blocks for 

"Cappella"

so far i have made the peices for 12
of the blocks of the 25 needed



for me this is pretty good, 
i don't get alot of time at the machine
or with needle and thread 

"Capella" 
is my work in progress
( one of many)
and i am enjoying the process
Miss M and i played with the blocks last night
and selected the combinations for the first
12 blocks

Miss M is enthralled and has decided that the new quilt would look great in her room

the name "Cappella" is Italian and means chapel
the fabric range is called 
"luna notte" by three sisters and means 
night moon in Italian
my MIL is Italian so in tribute to her and the range name i have gone with 
an Italian name
this quilt has gained it's name as the design 
results in many crosses, both colored and in cream
the blocks are set onpoint so the crosses are distinct
and i plan to quilt the crosses 
to highlight them

i have been working on my stitch along as well
and hope to post some pics of it soon

hope your hands are working on something that you love
