Is typically a slow month for us. It's nice as it gives us a chance to catch up on some quilts of our own and relax from the crazy pace at Christmas.

I recently finished up these two quilt for Bev.

We went with a fun Clamshell using my  CircleLord boards.

And on Bev's other quilt, some fun Loopies.

Such a fun quilt!

And her backing fabric, loved it.

Thanks again Bev!

A long weekend

And some uninterrupted sewing time and I have a good start on my jelly roll star quilt.

I love the colours

I've played with some border options and I think I finally settled on how I want to finish this off. 
Stay tuned!

oh Baby

Isn't this cute? 

This is one of the latest baby quilts offered at Hamels Quilt Store.

The giraffe is minky; so soft!

I went with a loopy meander for the quilting. 

I also finished this fun one by Faye.

We went with Wanders for the quilting to keep it fun.

Today and tomorrow are my days off; hope to have something fun to show you soon!

Jelly Roll Star

aka the Binding Tool quilt.
This quilt was offered as a class last fall; sad that I missed it with beautiful quilts like this quilt of Leslie's.

We went with the panto, Ground Cover.

And I was lucky enough to get into the latest class last week,

Can't wait to get this finished!!

hello, hello

I've been spending some time working on my Prismatic Star quilt. 

I actually spent some time last week, a lot of time! and carefully undid a few blocks to remove some fabrics I don't want in anymore.

I also took a quilt class on Saturday. I'll have to get some pictures of that quilt. I am loving how it is coming together and think I will turn it into a new quilt for our bed.

But first, back to work. 
Happy Monday!

Hot off the machine

This cute new store sample for Hamels Quilt Store.

The pantograph Bloomin Stars was the perfect choice with the printed blocks. 

I also finished up this lovely Asian quilt for Donna.

I love how the pattern shows on the backing.

I went with one of my favorite Asian patterns, Fan Palm.

Thanks for visiting!

Home again, home again

It feels like we have been on the road all year so far. 
After Christmas, we went up to Campbell River to visit family. We weren't home long when it was time to head down to Las Vegas. And now we are home.

I did manage to get this embroidery finished while on the island.

And I got some more work done on my Prismatic Star. I have a friend coming over one day next week for us to work on them again.

For now, it's time to start some laundry and get quilting.
