Tisket A Tasket Redwork

Do you remember the BunnyHill free BOM from 2009? I did mine in redwork instead of the applique. I had most of this put together last spring but it got put aside without finishing it. Well I finally got it all completed a couple weeks ago. Just a little slow in taking a picture and posting.

The blocks and layout are something I figured out on my own, sorry I don't have a pattern to direct you to. I did a simple meander quilting so I don't take away from the stitcheries. This is a prefect quilt for Feb, all about red!

Happy Quilting.

Little Doll Quilt

Just a quick post to show my little doll quilt, I worked on this last weekend. I ordered the kit from Daisy Cottage Quilting, Sharon makes the cutest kits and it came with everything, top, binding, backing and batting. I've started a bigger version using scraps from my stash, it's all pieced and now waiting for me quilt.

Happy Quilting.

Runner Finished and A Winner

I finished Sherri's Valentine tablerunner from the Be Mine Blog Tour, sorry the lighting is not the best, the fabrics are from the Bliss line.  It went together really fast, I don't usually make quilts with so much white but it's very cheerful to look at this time of year. You might see more of these type of quilts from me. I was notified by Carol today that I was the winner on her blog. I won the $50 gift certificate for the Fat Quarter Shop.  I just about fell off my chair, I couldn't believe I won twice in the last two weeks.
I'm really happy with how this quilting pattern turned out, it's the first time I've tried this design.
Now to start thinking about what to buy at the Fat Quarter shop.....woohoo....more shopping!.

I'm Back and I Won!

I've spent the last week in Las Vegas and no I didn't win at the slot machines but I did win a kit for this adorable little valentines quilt from Daisy Cottage Quilting. Isn't it just the sweetest little quilt, I can't wait for it to land in my mailbox. If you haven't seen Sharon's online shop it's worth a visit she has some wonderful kits, patterns and BOM's, all the things we quilters can't resist.

I didn't gamble much more than a few dollars, just wanted to try out a few machines for fun. DH had a business trip to Vegas and I went along for a little shopping, shows and sight seeing. We visited with some family and friends while there as well. I always forget how much walking is involved and boy my feet were sore but it's fun to see all the excitement of it all.

Yesterday I spent a few hours in my sewing room and finished a little heart table runner. While away I've been watching the "Be Mine Blog Tour". Each day designers posted a Valentines Day project with a tutorial. I just loved Sherri's table runner and got to work on it as soon as I got home. I'll show a picture as soon as it's quilted.

Happy Quilting.

Roll Roll Cotton Boll

I spent all day Sunday sewing like crazy. I can't believe I actually finished 12 blocks of the mystery quilt. That's plenty of blocks for me, I don't need to make anymore of those tiny HST's (1 1/2" finished). These blocks will be enough to make a lap quilt and I'm very happy with that. I need to decide on the alternate blocks, I don't do well sewing on paper and decided I'll substitute something else, just don't know what that will be right now
This was a fun mystery, I had no idea what the block would look like. I was hesitant about the red all along and wasn't sure how it would work in the block. It's really grown on me and now I love it! I look forward to seeing a few others with blocks completed.

Happy Quilting.
