Ho Ho Ho!

It’s my day in the Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop
hosted by oh so merry Carol at Just Let Me Quilt
and Sew We Quilt‘s Mdm Sam!
Have you seen all the incredible Christmas projects
shared over the last few days?
And today has more beautiful inspiration for us all at…

I was inspired by an amazing little Christmas Tree
made by Rita of Red Pepper Quilts.
My friend Katherine saw the same post,
so two weeks ago, while on retreat,
we couldn’t resist and just had to make the little trees!
I made mine with 2.5″ squares

 For the half-square triangles,
I started out with 3″ squares,
sewed the triangles

 and trimmed to 2.5″ squares

 … fabric-slaw!

 here it is on the design wall…

 Love the way Rita quilted hers…

so I did the same thing
and LOVE, LOVE how it turned out!
…may have to make a throw size…
wouldn’t that be cool?


Thanks so much for visiting today
and hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!


It’s my day…

…in the Tammy Project Bag Blog Hop
hosted by Mdm. Samm at Sew We Quilt!

Thanks Mdm. Samm for the awesome hop
and beautiful project!
And these are the ladies
sharing their beautiful bags today:
I was scheduled to post yesterday,
but after having a tree fall on my house
and having no power for over 3 weeks,
it’s taking me a bit longer to get things done…
… but I made it!!! Yay!
and here is my Tammy Bag
in one of my favorite Riley Blake fabrics:

This is the front…
and this the back…
This bag can hold so much…
… a little embroidery hoop,
sticky thimble dots,
a leather thimble,
2 scissors,
2 needle theaters,
embroidery thread,
a needle case
and several of my little wonky circles to embroider…
 and there was still room for more!!!
I love it! It’s just perfect to carry with me,
as I always must have something
to keep busy °Ü°
I’m so glad you stopped by today!
and hope you enjoy today’s hop,

Happy Hopping,

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…

WEDNESDAY March 20th

Cherry Blossom that’s me °Ü°


For my project, I chose to work on
this cute little design by Mdm. Samm.
Isn’t she adorable?
I haven’t decided what to make
with her…
thinking about a little pillow,
or maybe a pretty frame?…
Not sure yet,
what do you think?
Thanks Mdm. Samm for the wonderful design.

I also have two other projects
to show you….


well…they still need a bit more work…
