Pure quilt from quilter & a few weekend projects...

Hope everyone had a great weekend !


Thought I would share my #3 quilt back from the quilter " PURE ". This is going to be a christmas present for my daughter's good friend. This weekend I have sewn on the binding and started hand sewing it to the back.












I also decided this weekend to work on a couple of small quilt projects that I have been wanting to work on before starting another large quilt.





" Good Fortune "









This is a Schnibbles by Miss Rosie quilt Co. Pattern & I bought this quilt kit awhile back and the fabric line is " Collection for a Cause Legacy for Moda. The kit has everything I need to finish this quilt even the binding and backing fabrics.
Now I need to make the 12 little stars .






Here is another project I having wanted to get sewn together. Jo Morton Civil War Log cabin quilt blocks ! All done and ready for me to find some fabric for the 4 corners , border fabric and fabric for the backing.



My weekend started out when I found this old wheelbarrow at a garage sell for $1.00 ! Hubby drilled some holes for drainage & I quickly began planting my flowers . I'm a happy girl !









Oh how I love summer and how everything is in bloom !

Another quilt back from the quilter Maison De Garance...

I had received 3 of my quilts from the quilter tuesday.. This is #2 Maison De Garance Hot cross Buns quilt ! OH how I love French General fabric by Moda !


Every piece of this fabric is just more gorgeous then the next !





Just look at all of this wonderful quilting she did, just perfect for my future son in-law's xmas gift !







My hubby chose the backing for this one and I think it is just perfect ! Now to find the perfect fabric for binding. It is a toss for either a red or tan ?














This pile of fabric is why I have not been on my blog my blog this week and this is only 1/2 of it! Yes I am still cleaning out the sewing room and listing more fabric on Ebay. Good thing is though my stash closet is looking alot more oraganized !
























Eventide Luna Notte is back from the quilter.........

I received my Eventide from the quilter yesterday and she did a amazing job !



She quilted a wreath on every single quilt block. I know it is hard to see them...




Here is a closer picture of one of the blocks !






I chose the tonal buttery yellow from the Luna Notte fabric line for my backing...






I need to bind the quilt next. I chose a tonal red for my binding and it should be in the mail by the end of the week.






Thanks again Thelma for having this wonderful sew a- long ! I know I would have NEVER made this quilt without you.
