Hi Everyone !

Hope everyone is enjoying your summer  so far .

It has been very hot here in California the last few days and no relief in sight till a week from Friday :-(    So I go out first thing in the morning to water and tend to my gardens before it gets too hot.

I just could not wait to show you my Snails quilt!  I just finished binding it yesterday and here it is ..

  Fabrics I used is Tula Pink & Kaffee Fasset and the quilting design is called PEARCE by URBAN ELEMENTZ

I made this quilt to hang in my sewing room above my drafting table and I just Love it !
It is so bright and colorful and brings a smile to my face when I see it.
As you know all know besides making quilts I love gardening :-D

 I also made these 2 individual Snails for a friend of mines 2 Grandsons .

Happy Sewing !

Hi everyone !

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day !!

I have been working on my GARDEN SNAILS QUILT  a Pen paper pattern  this last week when I get a chance and just the perfect time of year to make this quilt.

I just finished making all of my snail blocks mostly made of Tula Pink  and Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
Such a fun quilt to make with these fabrics :-D

Here is a closeup of some for the Snails I made

Hoping to finish this quilt top this week and move on to another project soon   ....

I had a wonderful Mothers Day spending time with family and of course Nico. It is hard to believe that he will be 2 in July already. They grow to fast !

For Mother's Day Nico walked up to me and handed  me a gift bag and gave me a kiss. My heart just melted.. In the bag was this painting he painted for me on canvas. I am going to look for a special frame for it so I can display it.  Hoping this is a start of much more art work :-D

My list of GOALS for 2017

The last few days I have been writing a list of UFO'S I would like to finished this year and quilts I would like to make

These are not in any particular order just a visual list of projects I would like to complete in 2017

            I finished binding my RISE QUILT   so I can check #2 of of my list .

and..... I finished binding my AUTUMN GARDEN QUILT  last night so I can check #1 off my list !

I started 1 of 2 Flurry quilts I want to make.  I figured if I made them both now I would have them ready for Christmas gifts ;-)   Like I said I am not going to go in any order just what I am in the mood to make at the time. I guess I am still in the Christmas mood !  Love this Jingle fabric by Kate Spain !!

I plan on sticking to my list this year by only using fabric I already have and not buying any more fabric unless I need backing or binding

Happy Sewing Sue !!!
