Minis!!

Hello

Wow, I see it has been a while since I have posted!!

Life on a farm, May is seeding, June is spraying, and this year it was also my Dolly's high school graduation, which meant extra time being spent getting the flowers and yard looking good! 

And already we are passed the middle of July, I have just returned home from a trip to California!! My dolly won a scholarship to dance in Disneyland!! So her and I ventured off on our first far away trip. 

Anyway that is all other stories, for other times!

I wanted to share a few mini quilts I finished a while back! 



This is Blossom mini, pattern by Fig Tree and Co, so cute and fun to put together, fabric used is Tapestry also by Fig Tree and Co. I have a full sized Blossom quilt in progress as well.


I also made a Spools Mini, pattern by Camille Roskellys Thimbleblossoms, fabric is Vintage Modern also by Camille 


This pattern is Adorn, and can be found in Camille's book Simply Retro.  I played along with a mini quilt along on Instagram when I made this one. Fabric is Honeysweet, by Fig Tree and Co

Some day when I have a craft room these little minis will decorate my walls!!

I have a few other projects on the go as well! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thursday

Mini Blossom in Progress

I am in love with Mini Quilts

ok ok

I love big quilts too

Love making them, planning them, starting them and finishing them
Love gifting them, I feel a quilt makes such a special gift

I have my sights set on my own craft room
someday in the future, 
I am planning a mini quilt wall in my room too

I have a fee mini quilt patterns from Thimble Blossoms
and now Fig Tree and Co has made a few too


I pulled a few Tapestry Mini Charms
and went to work


Now isn't that the cutest!!!


they look so cute on my shelf


I have the top all finished up, and sandwiched ready for quilting

I have also started making the full sized version!!

Happy Wednesday

A Quilt for ME (34)

I know many of us quilters
love to gift our quilts, love the joy of making others happy
But how many of us make a quilt for ourselves??


I picked up this bundle of goodness from The Quilt Patch
same place I got the purple and brown bundle and the Hopscotch pattern I used for Katies quilt

I like the pattern, and it was super easy and quick to make
but I decided I wanted my quilt a little bigger
So I did the math and figured out how many more fat quarters would be needs for a 
6 x 7 block pattern, then decided for a few pops of colour


(thanks again for holding up my quilt dad)

I love a scrappy binding!!!


this quilt front in entirely made of flannel, and I used a deep red Fireside fleece for the back,
this baby is warm!!



I have already had to keep my eye on it,
mom tired to sneak it home with her, and my youngest son
keeps telling me it might end up in his room

At the beginning of the year I had a few quilting goals
I wanted to make a Triangle Quilt
I wanted to actually make a few quilts from the books I had collected
and I wanted to try my hand at Free Motion quilting

This was the first time I had done a whole quilt
just a nice easy big meandering

I am very happy with what I have accomplished so far this year!!


I can't wait to try napping with this one

Thanks for stopping by

The Library Project, May Update






I have fallen behind in my Library Projects, 
not that I haven't been making quilts...

Does it found that I have still been adding to my Library
I picked up these new books


and then Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree and Co
made a few Mini quilt patterns, which I bought, made and loved
I really liked my Mini Blossom pattern
So I decided to pull out her book and make the full sized quilt


I have had these fat quarters for a while, not knowing what I was going to do with them,
Now I know!!


My first full sized Blossom block
these finish up around 20 inches square



I am in love with it already!!

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Friday

I'm so lucky!!

At the start of last winter,
my hubby built me a quilt ladder

Then Christmas came along,
and I gifted my ladder to another quilter

Hubby promised me would make me another one
maybe even 2!!


As you can see, they are being built!!!

I am so excited!
1 will get stained and 1 will get painted white!!

I can't wait!!

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Wednesday
