Quilt Festival

As many of you may know the Online Quilt Festival is currently going on between October 29-November 5. Please click on the photo to enter your own quilt.


I  want to show you all one of the small wall hangings I did this year that I just love. It was very hard not to keep it for myself because I love everything about this little quilt, but I know that it is in very good hands. It was made with Anna Marie Horner Voile, Little Folks. I really enjoyed working on this quilt. I did the circles using needle turn appliqué.


This is also the very first time I ever did any kind of hand quilting. I really love it! I mean I think it turned out sooo great! I wanted an all over stitch and I like how it turned out. I think that the stitches give this quilt movement.


I had some left over pieces for the back, and since AMH is one of those fabrics you make sure to use every last scrap I tried to make the back interesting too.


I thank you for stopping by and taking the time to check out my little quilt. I would love it if you checked out the rest of my blog. I really love to read everyone's comments and I reply to every last one. I love the community of online quilters as I get very inspired by each and every one of you! I would love it if you choose to follow me on my quilting journey.

Happy crafting!!

Block a Day…final post

Finally, I actually stuck to it and completed all the blocks I have on hand. I am all caught up and can begin to work on a couple more projects.

Here is my final block.


Now I have blocks on their way to me as I speak so I'm sure I will continue the block a day once I receive those, but at least as of now I am caught up. Tomorrow will be mail day if all goes well. So if you are expecting a block from me, it will be on its way home in the next couple days.

Block a Day….Day 5

Whew…barely made it! I finished block 5 just in time and it was a doozy but I think its super cute. I made it for Kelly. She plans to make a Christmas quilt for her Grandparents (in-law)…I believe its their 50th anniversary on Christmas. So I wanted to make it special. I hope she, they, approve.


Here is a closer look at the hand work. Im a beginner…lolDSC_0055

…and here is Aliya with her pumpkin. Today we went to the pumpkin farm. She fed the animals, went on a pony ride, and got her face painted… among other things. She loves her pumpkin and has been calling it Mr. Pumpkin.

Block a Day….Day 4

I guess I wasn’t really into making a block today. I went a little too fast when I should have slowed down and matched my points better….lesson learned…pin….pin…pin!

Anyways, here is Day 4’s block. I have two more blocks to do and I will be caught up! Also, newly added item: Halloween Costume!

A block a day?!?

Well that's my goal. I seem to be getting behind on my blocks so I figured how hard would it be to do a block a day? Well not sure? Depends on the block!

So yesterday was day one, and this is my second day.

A block for Kelly. I hope she likes it.


I have 4 more blocks that I can think of. Hopefully I can get them all done and mailed by Monday! YAY!

Seeing Star…

That's right..just a single star which took me forever!

I do like how it turned out though. Its for one of my flickr bee’s. I hope she enjoys this little block. Her fabric was awesome!


Just got most of my monthly blocks checked off and finished. Sorry I am behind on my mailing but I promise I am working on them and I hope to have all my blocks done and mailed by the end of the week…I hope!

My Mom Won!

My Mom entered in her local quilt show in the two person contest and won second place! So excited for her! She plans to enter it in a couple more shows to see how it does. She did the piecing and a friend of hers (local longarm quilter, Terri) quilted it!


Isn't it stunning?!? I knew she would win.
