Last year I received an email from Cathy Habermann from Hands on Design asking if she could use the image from the True Blue Quilt Block and turn it into a counted canvas quilt square pattern. I said yes of course. It was an honor to be asked. Cathy came up with a beautiful design called RW&B Steps. The way she chose to stitch each square gave the finished design such wonderful dimension and the colors really pop.
Cathy creates delightful designs for counted canvas. You can go to her website Hands On Design to see some of her creations. Page 2 has the RW&B Steps picture. You can also follow Cathy through her blog and on her Facebook page.
It is a blessing from God to get to meet so many talented people through my love of quilts and sewing. Thank you again Cathy for contacting me.
I finished this baby quilt today for a lady at church. She is due next month with her second girl. I knew I wanted to make something modern this time. Something similar to a coin quilt. With this one I added an inch to the sashing fabric each time I added a strip so that it gradually gets wider. I think next time I will add a little more. It is hard to tell to me. I used some fabric squares from the Hello Betty line made by Moda. I bought the charm pack a while back and have been waiting for the right time to use it. The back of the quilt is some Noah’s Ark material that I have a few yards of. I have used it a few times for the back of baby quilts. I hope she likes it.

Just thought I would add a picture of my boy from his football game the other night. He sacked the quarterback. Way to go Tyler!!!
