Here is the first quilt I made from this book.
I have to tell you Maureen is a wonderful host, she had all our needs and wants taken care of including a gift for each person and prizes throughout the day. She also cooked the most delicious Greek dinner. She must have been cooking for days to feed all us hungry quilters. It was a wonderful day! The next post I'll show a few pictures of the show and tell.Happy Quilting. Until next time.

A new BOM started for 2010. This BOM is two of the same blocks each month, there will be 6 different blocks and then the alternate blocks with sashing and nine patches. The pattern instructions are great because when I'm done the block each month, both blocks are completed at the same time. I'm loving the reds, green, browns and the background fabric.

A UFO closer to becoming a quilt, I showed this a few months back and only the star blocks were complete, now the alternate blocks are done as well...yippee.
All 90 blocks are pieced and ready to become a completed quilt top. This quilt will be a queen size and it's definitely going to be for my bed.
I forget to show this bird pincushion I made my daughter as a Christmas gift.

Scrap-Basket Surprises and the pattern is called "Kitchen Sink", all the pieces are the same size for the center. My hubby called these chubby little pinwheels...isn't that cute. It's a great book, I love how this quilt turned out.

I'm still traumatized after being stranded in the snow. We went to a small town in Northern BC "bad idea in the middle of winter", what we do to see family over the holidays. The airplane was a small prop plane "another bad idea". we had a very nice time visiting, playing board games and watching the snow coming down all around. I didn't think about how that would effect getting home, "the snow kept falling". The little prop airplane could get up there but couldn't land, "due to poor visibility" you guessed it, they didn't pick us up....so now the airplane is going back to Vancouver without us. The only thing we could do is drive back to stay the night again "1 hour of driving in full-on snow storm"....you get the picture. My In-Laws were scheduled to leave after us but got home before we did. I'm so happy to be home, no more trips in the winter for me. I needed some serious relaxing time after that trip.
I hope everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays and spent New Years doing whatever makes you happy, we stayed home, I made dinner for the family and went to bed early.
I started cutting and piecing a quilt on New Years Day, I'll be back tomorrow to show you my first flimsy of the year.
Until next time....happy quilting.
