Mrs. Miller on the Plantation

With the arrival of my new Mrs. Miller's Apprentice fabrics, I pulled together a new mix of blues to make kits for my
Plantation Stars pattern!

Gosh, I love this quilt!

There's a very pretty range of prints.....
And a gorgeous range of shades for all those stars to sparkle!  (The lighting makes them look much lighter than they really are.) 
I chose this floral for the border as it has all different shades of blues and ties the quilt together so well!

Tomorrow, I'm heading for a much warmer climate!  At home today in Chicago, it's -12 temperature, so the 80's in Florida sound wonderful!  I'll be there giving a lecture and a bunch of workshops in the Tampa area for the East Pasco Quilters this Friday and Saturday.  So, come on and join the fun!!  

I'm also working toward the deadline later this month to submit the manuscript for book #2 for my next book with Martingale, and then there's the tax returns (groan) that are due.  

I'm also working on piecing the blocks together for a new, very different, large quilt called Stars Over Union Hill that is very scrappy and has some wool applique!  Ohhhh...fun stuff!

 And, at the same time, working on a new Tokens of the Past pattern, called Gathering in Blue, with three quilts made from a 10 inch precut of Mrs. Miller's Apprentice and border yardage.  Loving those 3 little cuties!  And...if time allows, maybe one or two more quilts before market in May.  

So...I'd better get packing.  The signs of spring are here somewhere.  The clocks change this weekend, and it's the beginning of Lent and Punchkie time (I know I didn't spell that correctly, but you know what I mean!)  Now, if Mother Nature could see to warmer weather....

Be Well and Stitch Happy!!  


  1. That is a beautiful border print. And how can you not love a star quilt?
    Enjoy those warm temperatures!!

    1. Punchkies (Paczki - pronounced like poonch-key) are like a filled donut only better. They're especially popular in bakeries in our neck of the woods - Chicago area - on Fat Tuesday.

  3. Excited by the prospect of the Gathering in Blue quilts made from the 10" precut of Mrs. Miller fabrics. Safe travels.

  4. Pam ~ Plantation Stars is on my very long to do list. Those blues are perfect to add for stars. Safe travels to you, and please bring back some warm weather for us.

  5. I got a bundle of Mrs. Miller's FQ's in the mail last week. I can't even untie the bow--they are so pretty. I think I'm going to need yardage of that floral though!
