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.

Some more Swoon

I finished my blocks tonight.  Here are two of the last three...I need to take a photo of the missing block but the lighting is terrible right now.

I have fabric to make myself a quilt as well and originally was going to make the same pattern.  Instead I'm going to make Swoon Sixteen.  I had to order an extra 1.5 yards to sash the block since I didn't want to sash in white.

Art Gallery Quilt

I made an EPP kit for my friend and add scraps of fabric to it whenever I make a quilt.  As a thank you she purchased a yummy fat quarter stack of Art Gallery fabrics for me.  The stack came with a pattern and I added some fabric to make it a bit bigger.

I love the almost silky feel of Art Gallery fabrics.  The backing is quite possibly one of my all time favorites.

My quilt holder wanted her own photo op since she stood out in the rain so I could get some photos.

I was hoping for some good river photos but it is a rainy gloomy Memorial Day.

I have had the Swoon quilt pattern for ages...in fact I have the original Swoon quilt kit in my closet.  I love the pattern and the fabric but never committed to making it...I think it was a time issue.

I decided to make a Christmas Swoon using Kate Spain's Solstice line and I am in love!  I can't wait to make my Swoon quilt with the Bonnie and Camille fabrics. I have fabric to make myself a Swoon Christmas quilt but I think I may make he new Swoon pattern.

I have 6 blocks finished and 3 to go.  I should probably call my long arm quilter and make an appointment to get this lovely quilted.

I'm in love!  I don't know why I waited so long to jump on the swoon bandwagon. I am making a Christmas Swoon using Kate Spain's Solstice line.

Since I have the perfect trimmings from the flying geese blocks I'm making little pinwheel blocks for a table topper for my husband's grandmother for Christmas.
