Off to the quilter they go....Eventide , Hot Cross & Bennington

Here they are all ready to be shipped to the quilter this morning ! Yeah!!

Eventide tht I made with Luna Notte fabric by Moda , Hot Cross made with Maison Garance by Moda and Bennington made with Pure by Moda!
I have backing for each one all sewen together except for Eventide which I am using a 108" backing fabric. I can't wait to see these when she is done doing her MAGIC ! It make sme SO nervous to mail a box like this out after ALL the hours I put into these quilts, that is why I insured it !!!!





Just look how cute my little acorn people Doreen made me for the b-day look on my pincushion. I just bought those 2 green baskets last week. The large basket is just perfect for my scraps when cutting and the smaller basket holds my rotary cutters. You will not believe where I bought these ! at my local Safeway grocery store ! I found them in the floral department. They are for potted plants and both lined with plastic. You should have seen the girls face when I told her I was buying them for my sewing room.

5 More DJ Blocks made with love........



Are these just amazing or what !! My best Friend Doreen is making these blocks for me as she makes samples for her sisters who have decided they would like to make a DJ Quilt too. This is where the name of my DJ quilt name came to be " My Sisters Mirror " I feel SO lucky to have her making these for me. I never in my lifetime thought I would ever own one of these amazing quilts. Doreen just sent me this picture of these wonderful blocks and I could not wait to share them with you. She is mailing them out to me tomorrow and I just can not wait to see them in person. Please go see her Progress on her Dj quilt it is gorgeous !
Thank you Doreen !

In the mood for some Red , White & Blue Wiscasset...







Well after organizing the sewing room I decided it was time to start a new quilt ! So I look thru my stack of boxes that I have my quilt kits and projects in. The white wicker basket on top of the boxes is where I keep my Winter Wonderland blocks.








Look what I found in my stack of Project boxes ! Schnibbles by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company Madeline Pattern with Moda Wiscasset fabric by Polly Minick & Lauri Simpson I had bought last summer. I even have the background fabric and border fabrics that I need. I plan on making more than the 9 blocks the pattern shows. I would like to make at least 18 or more but I will see how far my fabric goes. I know it is spring but I was just in the mood for some Red, White & Blue !

Eventide Luna Notte progress week 3 .... DONE !



Just finished my Eventide Quilt ! Whoo Hoo! I made this out of ALL Luna Notte quilt fabric by Moda . This fabric is just so beautiful to work with ! I have decided not to piece the border like the pattern , I think the quilt is busy enough so I am going to have this quilted and then add my binding. I would like to THANK Thelma of cupakesndaisies for having this wonderful sew-along ! If it were not for the sew-along I might have given up. Thelma says that there is 1,1115 pieces in this quilt . I am looking forward to seeing all of the other girls progress and watch their quilts in progress. So many of them are using different fabric. This should be alot of fun !

Thanks again Thelma!

Spring plants in bloom in my garden




Thought I would share a few of my plants blooming to get you in the mood for Spring !

Even though we had lots of snow and cold weather the blooms hung in there. I have also been keeping my birdfeeders full for all of my birds that visit me each day.

I don't know about you but I am really ready for Spring my favorite time of year !
