Sewing my Country Charmer quilt together

                                            Hi hope everyone had a great weekend !
I went to a bridal shower Saturday and Sunday I worked on my Country Charmer quilt
I finished sewing all of my nine patch units and started sewing my  quilt together . So far I just have these 3 rows sewn together. This is going together so easily :-D
This is what the quilt looks like so far.  I would like to finish this quilt this week so that I can sew my BOM Peppermint Place quilt block #2 together before Block # 3 arrives this week.

Country Charmer Progress sashing & nine patch units

      Made some great progress on my Country Charmer quilt today !
I sewn and cut all my  49  sashings ( there 4 that go along the bottom but I ran out of room on my design wall ) They were so simple & easy to make !
I even started cutting my fabric for my nine patch units  that go where you see the empty spots on the corners of each block
                       Speaking of Christmas quilts ....  I finished sewing my plaid binding  and quilt sleeve on my Vintage Rouge Quilt

          You are probably wondering how I had time to sew well... we had 3" of snow yesterday so just perfect weather for sewing ;-D

Valentines quilts

Hi Everyone ! I have been putting out my Valentines quilts since Valentines Day is next week .

     I made this  table topper quite a few years ago and enjoy it on my kitchen nook table each year

            This lovely heart quilt was made by my dear friend Doreen quite a few years ago too.  I always hang it in my sewing year each year to enjoy while I am sewing

 Here is a close up of the floral machine quilting she did.  Isn't it just beautiful.

     My wreath on my front porch is also decorated with love birds and heart wreath

 I am hoping to be able to  be able to make more Country Charmer blocks on Sunday

Have a great weekend !
