Hi everyone! Sorry I have been a bit slow to blog lately. I went out of town to visit my sister for a week, and then had a week long family reunion this week(still in progress!) 🙂 We are having so much fun hanging out together. I have been sewing a bit. I finished and mailed my bug doll for the blinking flights bug doll swap. They are so cute. I finished two of my T-Shirt quilt orders (only one more to go!) I started a circles quilt out of the Riley Blake fabric…it is going to be so dang cute! I caught up my Kansas City Star blocks, Hillary cut and pinned all my applique blocks so I HAD to finish them! She is so sweet! 🙂 I decided to try out free motion raw edge applique on my Bunny Hill bom blocks. I love them so much!
I won a gorgeous quilt from Penny at sewtakeahike. It is beautiful and I love it! Thank you Penny!
I would show pictures of all of these things but I dropped my camera in the river while visiting Hillary and my pics are bright white flashes…so I am trying to figure out the camera problem and then I am sure you will be swamped with photos!
And finally the real reason I wanted to post today! The Quilters Daily Deal today is a Wonderland by Momo layer cake for 15.95! It is such a great deal! 55% off! Go check it out and grab one for yourself!
Have a fantastic day!
I joined the Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap, how could I resist that kind of fun!? 🙂 So, of course I had to make a practice quilt! The little cutie above is my first attempt at a mini quilt. I had some fun with it. I tried a bit of embroidery mixed with patchwork. I also did some geometric free motion quilting on the squares and a bigger floral pattern on the rest of the quilt. I like it very much, so do my girls…they have decided that it is a quilt for their barbies! The jury is still out on that one!:)
This is the quilt I made for my swap partner. She is a darling girl who asked for bright bold colors…no pastels, she said! I am hoping that she will like this one! It sure was fun to make! I think the flower pattern in the quilting is so pretty. I used Tranquility by Sandy Gervais fabric and Hobbs Heirloom low loft batting so its not as puffy as it looks! I can’t wait to hear if she likes it! This swap has been fun and inspiring. I have enjoyed seeing all the other designs, everyone is so creative, and so different! Love it!
And last but not least, my spring blooms mini quilt received! I got this darling little art quilt in the mail this week. It is appropriately named Sunny and was made just for me by Royce. She is a wonderful fiber artist from Tennessee. Thanks so much Royce!
