A fund-raising quilt for the Jason Tennies Memorial Foundation - the beginnings.

And away we goooooo....!!!!

This is my first sketch for the quilt:

Next I used my cool Inktense pencils to make a color sketch.
I actually only did half of it, then scanned it, copied & flipped that half & joined it together so I could fit it all on one page.

The colors don't show up very well in this photo.

Then Sara & I went to Ginger's Quilt Shoppe in Upland, CA & bought the fabrics.
Since I don't have a dryer just now,
Sara took it all home with her & prewashed everything.
Then she sewed together all the Nine-Patch blocks,
and brought them to me.

And I cut them all apart again!

Now it's my turn to start sewing.

Happy Quilting!



  1. Found you from Sarah's blog. This looks like it's going to be a really neat quilt! It looks like it's going to have a stained glass effect. Very cool!

  2. Whoop! It looks great. I can't wait to see the finished project.

  3. That looks to be one nice quilt! Love the guitar applique (right?) in the center.

  4. Whoop whoop, Sue!! This is an awesome design - what a great way to use a D9P block!! I can't wait to see the finished quilt..... Thanks for linking up!!

  5. This a great piece of work. I am in on this raffle!
