Lots of quilting going on...


I'm really making some progress on my quilting back log!


After finishing the two big quilts below, I decided to work on some smaller baby quilts above. Literally I have so many quilt tops that are just waiting to be quilted. This is my attempt to get them done. This year I have finished three quilts with these next four waiting for binding!

Play with fabric

new mix #fabric !!!

I fell in love with the flowered print at the quilt store the other day. From there I paired it with some other prints I thought would match.


After I got home I cut some HST with my Go! and played with some layouts.

This is what I ended up with and I think I'm making a pillow!

the little #painting needs some help!

I finished my paintings this week! This is the almost finished picture. Before I hung them I painted the sides a peachy colour. I really love looking at them!

#painting today

This might be my favourite one.

Here is the little rug that I'm weaving that inspired the paintings. I really love chartreuse right now. And I always love shades of black and white! This was a little loom I set up using a blank picture frame. I set it up in a traditional Navajo weaving way. I need to familiarize myself with the weaving set up so when I go visit my grandmother this year I can learn everything I need to know to carry on the weaving in our family! She is 93 years old so there is some urgency.

Garden Geometry

Garden Geometry

I was so lucky to win a quilt kit from Melissa's 100 billion stars blog last month! She sent me all the fabrics to complete her mini quilt "Garden Geometry"! In addition to the prize she said I would also be receiving a few half yards of Parson Grey's Seven Wonders fabric line!

Once the quilt kit arrived I quickly started piecing the squares. But I realized that I really liked the idea of making this into a larger quilt....
