Oh no!! Not 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
This top is almost ready to sandwich. It’s a pretty simple pattern, and one I have made a few times. It’s a great pattern when you want to show-case a fabric.
But, I do not have anything quilting related finished.
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!
Happy Mother’s Day
I had this picture picked out for today ….
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
From 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!) Continue reading
Orca Bay #2
Here it is:
Did I, or Didn’t I?
Quilting Labyrinth #2
I have started quilting Labyrinth #2. I’m starting by stitching in the ditch around all the major sections. Then I’ll free-motion the rest.
The quilting will be very similar to what I did in this Labyrinth #1.
The easiest way to show all the pictures is in the following slide show. As you will see, I was with a group of very talented quilters. Everyone was working on different projects. What a diverse variety!
