Writing has never been something that I've enjoyed so it's not high on my list of things to do. I don't mind doing little snatches as on instagram or facebook but to sit down and write I often don't make the time.
I've had a few finishes and a couple of quilts have gone to new homes.
So to start off the tour, I guess I need to go way back to Christmas. Here is my delightful little wall hanging up and being enjoyed! The pattern was free from Sew Kind of Wonderful. I don't see it up on the site right now though. Check out their patterns using the quick curve ruler. It's fun and easy!
Early in the year I finished a quilt for my mom. She has always loved blue and white so this one really was for her right from the beginning. I'm really glad I made it for her and was happy that she loved it. I quilted it myself and had no end of trouble with eyelashing on the back. None the less, it got done and is being loved.
Again, I quilted it myself and other than the border, I just did straight line quilting. Not perfect lines by any means as I mostly eyeballed it but was happy with the result. I know this quilt is being loved!
One more quilt was finished and gifted to a special friend who became a grandma for the first time. Not sure that I will every be a grandma so I have to live vicariously through my friends and their grandkids. That's okay, my life is busy and full of joy.
I quilted this one too and had such fun with it. I was pleased with the final result on this one.
My friend Jen from Glinda Quilts is an advid quilter and loves quilting a lot! She organized getting a group of quilters to make a placemat and bag for Chernobyl children who go to Wales for a period of time in the summer. The children then get to take home their items. Such a worthy cause!! I made both a placemat and bag to send overseas.
Happy colours to brighten a little ones day!
This is a project that I've been working on lately. Have finished a couple of the blocks. The quilt was a kit I bought at a garage sale for a very good price which included the sashing, blocks and pattern to be made up. Of course I had to purchase as the pattern was called 'Paris in Spring'.
Last but certainly not least this is my latest finished top. Have yet to put it together and I really should have it done by July 1, Canada's 150 birthday.
Very happy with the colour choices. All of the fabric was purchased online at Sew Sisters. I just love their selection and the fabric is always top notch. I have never been disappointed with anything that I've purchased from them. They are very helpful and personal. Take time to check them out if you haven't already.
Well, I think that covers the last 5 months of 2017. I will really try to get back here more often.
Enjoy your weekend and the beginnings of summer! I know I will!!
