Was busy last weekend.....

And do you want to see what I finished?  OK!!

One of my Quilty Boxes.  Finally.  I love receiving these, but I never seem to find the time to do them, and meanwhile, the patterns and material (because you sure do get alot in those boxes - and the most amazing tools as well), keep on piling up.  But I made a promise to myself to get a few done, and this is one of them.  Isn't the redwork (the sewing) fabulous in the middle.  I'm so proud that I did it all myself.  Over a period of time of course  :)

And here is another one of those great row by rows.  But this one I'm keeping for myself.
The details.

and this one is staying on the back of my couch, where my lovely cat has decided with this quilt it's the most comfortable place to be.

3 blocks from a quilt that a friend gave me to replace the tea pot quilt that I made her.  This one is a little small, but all batique which makes the material something to die for!!!!

Four more for the Splendid Sampler.  I have 40 so far, and there's 100 to complete.  But I'm taking it easy and enjoying the process, because there's lots to learn on this one.

I've also completed another block for the Canadian Mystery quilt.  But you'll have to wait for that one.  All this and not one thing from my quarterly list of things to do for the first 3 months of the year.  I better get going on that.  Oh, and I did do a lot of work on my quilt for my quilt guild.  The tree is attached to my modern quilt and two of the thread leaves.  It's on it's way and I'm very excited about it.  Stay tuned for that one.  It's the only way you'll see something of the quilt before I had it in.  I think I have to complete the form first, then hand it in at the May meeting.  That's just 3 months away so I have to hurry.  I have one completed, this one on it's way, and one (the challenge quilt) that I have not even started, but I do have a pattern in mind.  

Stay tuned.


  1. That row by row is amazing! What store did it come from? I may have to see if I can get the pattern.

    1. I got it from the Underground Quilt Store in Seattle, WA. Was fantastic work, can't believe some of the quilts there.

Down the Rabbit Hole - finally I started it...

As was my goal this year, I wanted to do some blocks of the month online, do some samplers, and Gable House and Co. has a fantastic one.  It's called "Down the Rabbit Hole" and Jennifer Overstreet does a fantastic job of explaining each and every step.  At this point it's very simple for a beginner quilter, and although I'm past that step, it's still fun to figure out other ways to do the blocks, making it more challenging.

A friend of mine gave me 50 pieces of fabric for my 50th birthday, so I'm using all those scraps.  They have  patterns with green, blue, pink and red, some modern, some old.  It's quite the combo but it's going well so far.  I'm  using some green material as a filler or background to bring it all together.  I already purchased 2 meters of this greenso that's working out with no new purchases.  The object in "my head" is to use all that material she gave me, so it will be my birthday quilt at the end.  The thi…

2017's New Quarter Start.

Well, another year's gone by with a lot accomplished (see the tab above marked 2017) to see all that I've accomplished in the way of quilts.  And a large part of it is thanks to the 2016th Finish Along (FAQ).   I've always been a big fan of making lists and the group at the Finish Along has always helped me to think about it, as well as enter all my list of items.  And as luck would have it they're doing it again.  
So here it is, another list for me to try to complete.  If I do two or three of them I will be very happy, but I will try to list all of them.  I'm hoping for two very special ones to be completed.  You've seen them often on my list, but here they are again.

Goal #1: I've completed 6 of the wool projects, and I'm hoping to complete the other 6 of the Midnight Garden.  Here is one example, 6 more to go....  I love doing these but it takes at least a month to do it.  So keep an eye on this blog to see what can be done...  It's a beautiful qu…


Well, it's true.... when someone tells you to take it easy you don't....
I have had five days of no driving due to vertigo from an ear infection and with no ability to walk straight I just sat..... for about 10 minutes, and then I was off.....
I sat in front of my sewing machine and completed a few things that I wanted to do.  Here are some of the results:
This was left over from another quilt with a few pieces missing.  It now has the binding and is on my sideboard.  The binding is chocolate brown. Pink Lemonade quilt from the Quilty Box.  Got bored of it fast so I moved on.  Replaced one UFO I finished with a new one.

The Canadian Mystery Quilt BOM.Almost completed, one to go and the binding.I have also started to stitch/quilt each one.I'll quilt as I go when I'm all done.This one is BC with the whales and the spirit bear.

This Row by Row is home for Yellowknife...  love it.
This was a free BOM from Quilty Designs (I love their designs) in 2014 I believe.  I did 5 m…
