Oh no!! Not MORE UFOs?

More UFOs?

That’s right … I was searching for some fabric that I knew I had somewhere … and I opened this container and discovered more UFOs.   There was a bunch of rectangles that I know were intended for zipper bags and some squares from a panel that were suppose to be pillow covers, but I had made handles and I think I was thinking of making a little bag.

Jaxson & Skittles

Linda is a quilting buddy.  Her neighbour’s kids have doxies – Jaxson & Skittles.  The neighbour often dog-sits the cute fur-babies.    Sew, when Linda. saw the “Dogs in Sweaters” pattern by Elizabeth Hartman, she knew she had to make one of Jaxson and one of Skittles.  However, she wanted to make them as true to the colouring of the dogs … so she managed to get pictures of each of the dogs.

Then she made the pillows: SEW cute!!!

Didn’t she do a fantastic job with the colouring?  I think Linda is one talented lady! Continue reading

May 14 Stash & Design

However, I do have my garden planted and I noticed that some of the radishes are up, and a few pea plants are poking their head through the dirt!   We’ve had a couple of harvests of rhubarb … yes, spring is here! Continue reading

Friday … I’m starting new projects!

That’s correct … I’m not starting just one new project … but 3!!!!

Mystery quilts are a great, great temptation to me … and there are 2 that have left me wondering “should I or shouldn’t I?”   Well, the answer is I shouldn’t but I’m going to!

#1   Square Dance

IMG_2552From My Carolina Home is offering “Square Dance.”  This is the one that is already started with the clues named after the calls or moves in square dancing.  Fun!
SEW:  I have started sewing the first few clues, you can see the 9 patches here.  I’m making this with Kansas Troubles … a favourite fabric line! And all from my stash.   This is going to be a small quilt … a table topper.  It should be doable and easily finished by the end of the year.  (If I want to get my PHD in 2018 – it has to be finished!)
