HAPPY MARCH !!!


Wishing everyone a Happy March !!

This little  gal is a block from my Calendar Girls Quilt . Just love how  her scarf is blowing in the wind

My  finished sewing the binding on my Very Merry Christmas  Quilt and just finished sewing the Snowman quilt label together. Just need to add some eyes and date. Then I can call this quilt a finish.


I also completed sewing on my binding for Autumn Woods by machine so no I can hand sew the binding on at night .

 I also made 4 of this 10" mini design boards that I have been wanting to make for sometime now
And of course I had to use leftover French General fabric that I had in my stash .
I plan on making more .   These design boards are really going to come in handy :-D
The design boards I made are from a tutorial that LORI HOLT HAS 



So with this projects almost completed I plan on laying out the baby quilt and get that sandwiched together . Hopefully I will get that quilted today and check that off my list .


 Smoky has been keeping me company in the sewing room. She is such a sweetheart :-D



This is a picture I took one morning in Downtown Grass Valley while we were having breakfast.
Just love the history of this gold country town

Happy Sewing !

Found the Dachshund fabric for the baby quilt !



Found this perfect DOG  fabric for the backing of the baby quilt I just finished sewing together :-D

Isn't it just the cutest ?

It is called  VICTORIA HUTTO for Quilting Treasures 

I think it be perfect for a child's quilt.  Found it at my local Ben Franklin store.  
I walked into the store and asked the person in the fabric section if she had any Dachshund fabric and she said " Lets go check out our dog section "  We walked over to this wall of different dog fabrics. I was shocked that had so much !

So glad I found this fabric and now I can finish this quilt :-D

SCORE !!

Have a Great weekend !
