2017 New Year, new goals

 This is the first block for the "The Quilt Show's" Sue Garmon Block of the Month. So sad to hear that Sue Garmon has died since this posting. I will enjoy this years Block of the Month in memory of her.
My goal for this year is to quilt some of my completed quilt tops. Shown here are: Bonnie Hunter's En Provence Mystery quilt, still finishing the top. I have begun to quilt the Red/white/and blue quilt. Cross Roads Quilt Along by Fat Quarter shop, and Dulcet by "Its sew Emma" pattern are quilt tops I completed this past year. The quilt on the top is made using "Jason Yenter" fabrics. I added some appliqué butterflies to the quilt top. This was made about 5 years ago, so I really would like to get this quilted this year. As one of my favorite bloggers would say, "Goals are good"!

En Provence Mystery

 I am joining Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilt this year called En Provence, link to her blog here: http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2016/11/en-provence-mystery-monday-link-up-part.html. I really had to be careful with the Tri Rex blocks as my 1/4 inch had to be really scant!
I also had my quilt group "The Material Girls" at my house for our annual party and Challenge reveal. What a great group of talented gals!

Oh Mother...

 For some reason, my Mom receives unfinished projects from some of her friends. She then gives them to me to finish. I guess she thinks I don't have enough UFO's of my own? Well, anyway...this one was too cute not to finish!
This swaddle blanket was made for my great niece/nephew to be. The baby is due in December, but they will not have a shower until January as they did not want to know the gender of the baby ahead of time.  A rare thing these days!
My Mom loves these purses, so I made her a new purse and wallet for her birthday. She requested black.

It's beginning...

 This is a pattern from "It's so Emma". I love this fabric line called "Ambleside"
 I made this quilt for my sister for Christmas. The center will fit her bed and the panels will hang along the sides of the bed. She lost her horse last year, so I know she will be happy to receive this quilt. It was quilted by Darby Meyer.
I also made a few Mug Rugs for my "nursing" friends. These will be part of Christmas giving. I am trying to get an early start!

Quilt Show 2016

Had a great time at the PIQF with my friends Barbara and Kathy. 
I am always amazed at the beautiful quilts in this show.  



This quilt I made for my sister who loves horses. She picked out the fabric.
This quilt was amazing. The bugs were 3 dimensional. Very creative!

Gifts and boutique items


 My brother likes to make spaghetti and asked me to make him some potholders. He wanted the pot holders that would cover a pot lid when pouring out the water for the spaghetti. I was able to adjust a pattern I had and made these. The round pot holder is from "Purple Plum patterns".
These are cosmetic bags and a coin purse made for the Common Threads Quilt Guild boutique

I loved this pattern from "Pretty by Hand"s blog. These two bags were made for the boutique


This is from a pattern found in the Magazine "Quilts and more". It holds coloring pencils, and I will add one of the quilting coloring books that are so popular these days!

This bucket was made from a Pinterest site, but the directions were pretty hard to follow, so I kind of did my own thing!
Happy Quilting!
