What I'm Working On....

Hey folks, hope everyone has had a good weekend.  Mine went too fast, but, enjoyed it.  This afternoon we got to watch two of our grandsons play hockey...I love it!!!

On to quilting, eh...I have this customer quilt in being hand quilted.
I'm just past the center with the quilting.  I have my "Wallflower" quilt on Lily, just getting started with it.
I'm freehand quilting flowers in the borders, then I will do some ruler work with freehand in the blocks.
Will be puttering in the sewing room this week too...working a bit on a couple of table runners, and some bindings.  Then, I have to start piecing a quilt for a, lots going on.

I'm hoping someone might sneak in while I sleep and do a little of my spring cleaning!!!!  Maybe???

Small, Smaller, and Smallest

Well folks, how are you enjoying the hop so far??? We have some very talented people sharing their work with us...right? I want to thank Carol, from Just Let Me Quilt for hosting for us again.

This time, I have a little table runner to show is Echos table runner from Connecting Threads.
The top is pieced with Batiks, and it is one that goes together very quickly.
A closer look so you can maybe see the quilting a little.  It is swirls in gold Glide thread done on Lily.
This next project wasn't done for this hop....but, they are small, so.....going to show them to you.
These are from a paper pieced pattern called Tall Tree Trim...kind of neat, eh.  Here are a couple of small ones from the past...mug rugs with photos printed on fabric. cushion

Please visit everyone on the list below and show some love.  Thanks for visiting!!!

Loving this Quilt

I finished the cross stitch quilt last week, but I can't show you it is a wedding gift from my customer.   But later, you will see it.  So......on with the next one, eh!! I love this Log Cabin quilt done by a lovely lady.
Her colour choices are fantastic, and keep the whole quilt soft. I also machine quilted this little one yesterday, (not quilted here)
You gotta love Jenny Doan!!!!
Well, just got back from a 4 Klm walk with hubby, now have to have tea and get to the sewing room!

Good morning that the excitement of the blog hop is over, I am settling In to work.
Right now, I am hand quilting a gorgeous cross stitched quilt.  I can't post it yet though, because it is a gift from my soon.
Besides that, I finished quilting this "Slash Block" yesterday on Lily...did a geometric design this time.

And I pieced this wall hanging...

Put a Little Love in Your Quilt!!!!

I am really excited about this blog hop, because it has been ages since I joined one.  I hope you all join us in the fun projects being brought to you this week.  I want to thank Carol from for hosting this one...I hope she does it again and again.

I enjoy being on the first day..that way I am less apt to My project this time around is a little one, a cushion cover. I can't remember exactly where I saw this, but on line somewhere...someone had a piece similar and I thought it was soooo cute. Thank you to the person who posted it.
Here is my garden of hearts...
Isn't it just the cutest thing???  I made the hearts with my Go Baby and fused them on the fabric...appliquéd with a blanket stitch...added colourful ric rac for some fun! I machine quilted the background on Lily, my Coronet.

Now, I know I said I had one little project...but, I saw this on the Accuquilt site(similar) and couldn't resist.
This is done with the Go Baby for the heart leaves and hearts...and my husband drew the owls.  Gotta love him!! I stippled the background fairly densely to make the pieces pop.  The border has a heart and loop vine. Here is another pic...maybe you can see the border better.
This was so much fun to make, and I just love it!!!!!  Now......hope you are still here, because I have a nice giveaway for you.  I will draw randomly at the end of the blog hop for a $30. Gift certificate being sponsored by Mad About Patchwork.  A huge thank you to them for always being willing to play along with us.
