Every good quilt starts with a plan

Which is where I am right now with my Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild Kona challenge quilt.

Relaxing afternoon

 I am at the planning stage. I got out a quilt (made by my mom) a pillow, a pile of magazines, my laptop and my trusty The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns: 4050 Pieced Blocks for Quilters

The Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns: 4050 Pieced Blocks for Quilters

Where I found this block:

Which inspired some sketching and some math.

SMQG Kona Challenge planning

After a lot more sketching and a lot more math I now I have plan. Which means I am about to start the dreaded cutting stage. I don't know why but that is the stage of quilting I hate the most. And I have a lot of it to do.

I have to prep/cut fabric for this quilt, the orange and blue quilt, and the class I am taking with my mom. The good thing about all of this is I am officially on summer break and I will enjoy every minute of each of my projects. 


  1. Hi Jenn.. your pups look so interested in your planning! I like the block you tagged and can't wait to see what you are up to. Good luck with the cutting and talk to you soon!

  2. Hi,
    Oh my Oh my I love those dogs!!! We had our German Shepherd for 13 years. Seeing your bring back good memories. I miss my Bo.
    PS your quilts and blog are great too.

    fellow blogger,

  3. That Kona quilt is so pretty and I love the block you pulled out of that book. I take it, there are no instructions for piecing it and that's why you put the pencil to paper? I may have to do the same. Looking forward to seeing your project using that!


Thank you for taking the the time comment. Please know that I read each comment and they all make me smile.
