I’m back…

Hello there, I’ve been gone for a long time
and have been missing ya’ll so much!
2014 was an incredible, but crazy, busy year for me…
So many awesome things happened
and I want to share some of the fun things
I worked on over the next few days…
It all started with Celebrate the Seasons with C&T
 The book includes patterns for Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter,
all with full size layouts & reversed templates!
I had a great time working on each of these projects,
and if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be
Thankful… or maybe Merry & Bright?…
Humm, I don’t know…
the little chicks in Happy Easter turned out so sweet, plus …
well, then there’s the map, love maps and travel! … lol…
Okay, how can a mom have a favorite child, right?
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Hugs,

 

 

 

I’m so grateful…

My Retro Chair…

Welcome to my day in the
I’m so happy to be sharing my block with ya’ll today!
I don’t know what it is about chairs,
but I just love them!
…I’ve made a few
quilts that feature chairs!…
so, when I was invited to submit
a block to Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks,
I new it would be a chair!
I usually draw on my computer,
but sometimes it’s just easier to sketch it out
and scan the image in.
This is the little sketch I started with…

…a half chair!

It’s easier to mirror the
half to create a symmetrical drawing.
Of course, I had to make a quilt using my block, lol!
sorry about the bad picture…

It’s part of the this issue’s Designer’s Gallery!

You know how much I LOVE quilting
and designed the quilt with large open areas

Isn’t this flower just perfect?

Here’s a close up of the chair block…
Check out the clock…
just had to add a little bit of bling! he he!

Would you like to make my chair?
I think it would make a fun little pillow or perhaps a bag, or a…

New pattern and giveaway

Are you ready for an awesome giveaway?
Have you ever made a quilt with
the wonderful and cuddly Shannon Fabrics?
I fell in love with this fabric after making this scarf
And look at these beautiful fabrics…
I absolutely love the bright colors in this line, Izzy
and this one is made with Spice Market
The fabric is very easy to work with,
you just need to use a walking foot to piece,
and after cutting, I found the best thing to do
was take all my cut pieces outside and shake the “cuddle dust” off… Ü
I also kept my vacuum cleaner close by to vacuum often!
You can find more tips for working with this fabric here.
Both quilts are backed with Cuddle fabrics
Love the embossing…
and quilted with my favorite…
These quilts are so comfortable and warm,
they have become favorites in my house!
Would you like to make one of these quilts?
You can find my free pattern here
and here
But even better, would you like to win a kit
with all the fabric, for both the top and back?
We are giving away your choice of 2 kits!
Each kit has:
A Free Market Crossing Pattern
6 yards of Shannon Fabrics (choose
Spice Market Basil or Izzy Topaz)
Plus a Twin size Quilter’s Dream Select batting
And a $25 gift Certificate from Superior Threads
Total value: $162!
