My Latest DREAMI Quilts

In the world of quilting, "DREAMI" stands for DRop Everything And Make It. I have two DREAMI quilts to share with you today.

This DREAMI quilt is a quilt-in-progress. It started with a bundle of fabrics I won on the Kathleen McMusing blog. Thank you, Kathleen!!! Check out what Kathleen made out of this line of fabric on her blog, here, "My Victorian Windows". 

"Sweet Tweets" is a batik line from Island Batiks. These fabrics arrived in the mail one day, and I started cutting and sewing the next:


It uses the QCR Mini (Quick Curve Ruler Mini) and a free pattern called "Ric Rac", from the Sew Kind of Wonderful website, here
I have three rows put together and two more rows to go. My quilt will be longer and wider than the pattern, in an effort to "use it up", not to mention, we're all tall in my family!

My second DREAMI quilt is this autumn version of the Joyful Barn Star pattern.

This quilt started with this bundle of autumn themed fabrics. I bought them one day and made the quilt for our front door the next.

The day after, we took a day trip to the north shore of Lake Superior. Here are a few photos I took there:



It's hanging on our front door now. There will be a winter version when the time arrives!


Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  2. I love your fall version of your Joyful Barn Star quilt. It looks great on your front door. The curves in your Ric Rack quilt make it special and unique. Great job on your quilts!

  4. How fun that you were able to make the quilt using the fabrics you won, and you made it so fast! Love those quilts on your door, they are so pretty! Where is that lighthouse in Duluth? I don't think I've been to that one.

  12. Ooh, I love both of these DrEAMis! First of all Ric Rac! I grew up with Ric Rac sewn by my mom near the bottom edges of my hand-me-down dresses to cover the faded line where the hems had been let down as my cousins and I grew taller. Thanks for the memory triggered by that cute quilt. And then the door quilt—perfect reason to Drop Everything! It looks wonderful on both your door and the lighthouse. Which lights are those? (I’m a big fan of lighthouses and the Great Lakes.
