Jan Finishes

This is my second little quilt finish of the Simple Whatnots Club 1. Didn't sign up for Club 2 because I still have four little quilt patterns to do from the first club. I've got one started and hope to have it finished next month.
The Candy Hearts quilt was quick and I'm thrilled to have a heart quilt ready for Feb. I'm also happy to say at least 98% of this fabric came from my stash. #sewmystash2015challenge1 #sewmystash2015
The pattern is from Emily Anns Kloset on Etsy.
I've had this idea for a while and found the inspiration to get this done. The vinyl is heavy enough to give the bag good stability. The bird fabric worked out well for this bag.

Happy Quilting!

First Finish

Time to catch up on the first couple weeks of the year. My first finish for 2015, Candy Hearts is a flimsy. I had so much fun making these hearts, it will be ready for Feb, my favourite month.
It's a prefect size for the table.

And then I took a class taught by a good friend, as if I needed to start a new project. Log cabin blocks done in Red and White, haven't decided how big this quilt will be yet.
Still working on Fat Quarter Shop Mystery blocks. This is number 6, I have number 7 cut and ready for piecing. Block 8 will be arriving soon, I don't want to get behind on these.

Happy Quilting!

Dec Review

Time to catch up for the month of Dec. It's always harder when everything I'm making is a gift and I can't show for fear of giving it away. I almost finished the Wish Quilt, it didn't get quilted in time and I wasn't about to stress about it. There's always next year!
I did finish this little Cheri Payne pattern. I had so much fun making the trees, I made a smaller 12" hanging to fit the frame stands, that one was given as a gift and then I had to make one for myself as well as the bigger version.
Close up of the applique.
I stitched a few ornaments for friends, gave these with a bag of cookies.
Went to the Christmas Vintage Market, Totally forgot what I came home with, Should have bought the Noel regretting I didn't.
Baked a lot of cookies, ginger snaps are my favourite.
Sweet little gift from my friend Linda.
Love my little wool table mat from my friend Gillian.

Hope your Christmas was filled with love, laughter, family and friends.

See you in 2015!

Secret Projects

This isn't a secret project but one that I started a few years ago. I've brought out the Wish quilt AGAIN!. Maybe I can finally get it finished. This stitched block isn't officially part of the Wish quilt but it will be part of my version. The Wish Quilt is a free pattern from Red Brolly.
I made this into a 6" star block, I changed the stitchery in this block.
This little wallhanging is the first of two secret projects. I've given this to my Secret Sister, I should make a second one for me. Soon I can reveal the other project.

Happy Quilting!

Fall decorating

I love this time of year when the leaves change to fall colours and the pumpkins come out. Here is a little fall decorating around my house. The Boo blocks I bought at Folktales in Lynden, Wash. This shop is a must see if you are in the area.
The pumpkin and crow quilt is from Need'l Love book called Autumn Threads. It's on the front cover.
I made the witch a few years ago, it's from a pattern by Threads That Bind. A friend gave me the framed picture of the witches boots, she did the drawing. I love them both together.

Happy Halloween.

Moda Love Finished Quilt

The borders are added, quilted and ready for gift giving. It's a queen size quilt and will be a gift for my daughter, haven't decided if it will be Christmas gift or birthday. The free pattern is from Moda and they've included 3 sizes using pre-cuts. This was a very quick quilt to make and I'm happy with how it turned out.
The second little quilt in the Simple Whatnots club, I've sewed the flying geese on the sides, just not in this picture.
A little fall decorating, my favourite time of year. This is hanging just inside the front door. 

Happy Autumn!
