South Shore Road, Raspberry blocks, and a little quilty shopping...

St. Mary's Shoreline
by Sandi (kwiltnkats)

I recently made a new online friend, Sandi, aka kwiltnkats at the Quilters Club of America website.  What a fun site to connect with other quilters.  I just loved her rendition of my quilt design, South Shore Road, featured as a series quilt in Quiltmaker magazine from the January/February 2006 issue through the July/August 2006 issue.  The subtle color scheme she used gives this quilt a quiet magnificence.  It is so much fun to see someone else's interpretation of one of my designs.  Sandi's quilt was used for an American Legion raffle.  You can see more of her work at her blog,, her website,, or in her gallery at Quilters Club of America.

Raspberry Bridge Mix 
Hourglass Blocks

Here's a picture of some of the large hourglass blocks I made yesterday for the Raspberry Bridge Mix quilt.  I made a total of 20 raspberry and chocolate hourglass blocks yesterday.  Yum!  Today I started working on some of the small chocolate and cream hourglass squares.  The pattern for this quilt is available for sale at the Curlicue Creations shop,

Set of 3 "Quilty" Jars

"Quilty" Cookie Jar

And on to the "quilty" shopping!  I now have a complete set of the barnyard jars with lids.  I originally had only the pig jar, but a couple of weeks ago I found both the cow jar and the chicken jar and lids for all three.  How cute!  I am keeping snippets in the pig jar, and safety pins for basting in the cow jar.  But what to do with the chicken jar?  Hmmmmm?  Chocolate stash maybe?

I found the cookie jar in a thrift store today for $2.00.  I just couldn't pass it up!  There are 16 different squares in the 25 squares printed on the jar.  The kids and I had fun today picking out our favorites.  Splendid!  Plus, if I replace my old clear glass cookie jar with this one, Trent won't be able to see the cookies inside.  That will eliminate a lot of crying for cookies.  That's worth $2.00 for sure!

Faith Quilt Block 

Be sure to check out the Curlicue Creations shop for the Faith Quilt Block pattern, first in a series of five applique block patterns, Faith, Joy, Love, Peace, and Hope.  Here's a link to the Faith pattern:

Have a super day!

  1. Thanks Jennifer. Raspberry is my most favorite PINK! I'll be anxious to see what adding cream to your project will look like. Sandi

  2. I too have seen the St Mary's Shoreline Quilt. I live in Maryland and it was my Legion that had the proud moment to raffle the quilt off. Yes, it is a beautiful quilt and you did an awesome job of designing it. There were many people wanting to win that quilt.

  3. The cookie jar is a great find- and $2 well spent. Looking forward to seeing your raspberry and chocolate quilt creation- two of my favorite flavors!
