Swoon Finish

I received my finished Swoon quilt from the quilter back at the beginning of August and wanted to wait to post finished photos until it went to its new home.   

 I delivered the quilt to the newly married couple last week.  These photos were taken the morning we left for California.

The quilting is a snowflake pattern with swirls that plays really well off the background fabric that is filled with snowflakes.  There is a nice layer of wool batting to keep the new couple nice and toasty around Christmas.


Some close-ups of the quilting.


I love this backing...and I love this quilt...so much so that I have the supplies to make myself one.  The blocks will be different combinations but it will be the same fabric line and I am so very excited about this!  I had a really hard time giving this one up because I love it so much!

Snapshots Block #3

I am slowly, but surely, catching up with the Snapshots Quilt Along.  Here is block #3.  I have four more to make to be all caught up, but considering I didn't have any made at the beginning of June I think I'm doing pretty good.


Monday Star Count

I only added 2.5 stars to the count making my total 54.5.  It was too hot to sit and stitch... So I swam with the kids ��


I am linking up with Life Under Quilts for the Monday Morning Star Count.

Monday Evening Star Count

My traveling quilt is my Summer project.  I can take it to our cottage and easily stitch while the girls swim.

I'm up to 52 stars with no real plan in place.  Each star is from scraps of quilts I've made.  There will not be any duplicates.



These were added this weekend.








Snapshots

I've had the quilt kit but hadn't cut into t until last week...I'm not sure why I waited. I'm in love ��

Christmas Sewing

I needed something quick and easy to sew and had purchased a layer cake from Bunnyhill Designs and the Me and My Sister Designs Makin' it Cute Mitten pattern.  I was able to make 3 mittens from 2 slices of the layer cake...add a little ribbon and you have a perfect little ornament.

My first mini

finished my first mini quilt and it definitely won't be my last.  This was a gift for my grandma on her 87th birthday yeaterday.  She lives in a nursing home so we have to be careful of how much stuff she has and how big it is.



The fabric is Miss Kate by Bonnie and Camille and the pattern is by Thimble Blossoms.
