 Not much going on at my house this week. The rain continues, it hardly feels like spring. It's not just the rain but it's colder than normal for this time of year. I've been working on a lot of customer quilts but thought I'd sneak in a small quilt of my own. I really like this feather pattern and wanted to try it out.
When I get the binding sewn on, I'll show this quilt again. It's not very big, you are looking at half of it in the picture. 

Wishing for spring to arrive soon!

Happy Quilting.

Happy Easter

It's Easter weekend and it's sunny. It finally feels like the start of spring with temperatures warming up a bit....woohoo....I love it! Soon I can get out in the garden because there is going to be lots of things to do but until it gets warm enough the garden can wait.
In the meantime I'll keep on sewing. Here is a little quilt made from Country Threads new book called Charm School. The thimble block is easy and fun, I'd like to make a bigger quilt using this block but I don't think that will happen anytime soon, I've got too many other quilty things waiting for me.

I hope you are having a wonderful relaxing Easter weekend.

Jo's Baby Rose

Remember long ago when I belonged to the Jo's club, I did this little appliquéd center. Well that's how it sat all this time, until this last week. A friend reminded me of this UFO and it gave me that push I needed to finally get it finished. It sure didn't take long, but for some reason I hadn't finished it sooner. I'm glad it's checked of my "to do" list.
Look at this lonely block, this is for a BOM at a sewing group I belong to, it goes in the pile and one name is drawn to win all the blocks. Given how long it took me to make this block and how complicated it seemed to me, I don't think I'll be making more. I think the block is called Gretchen. Hmmm.....I wouldn't mind winning these blocks.

Happy Quilting

It's Coming.

I've noticed a few bunny's popping up around the blogs. This stitchery had been sitting around my sewing room not finished for the longest time. It was about due for me to make it into a little wallhanging. I think we need to decorate a little early to have time to enjoy these cute bunny's.

It's starting to feel like spring....woohoo the sun is shining today.
Happy Stitching.

9 Patch Quilt

I started working on this before going away, these 9-patches were part of a swap (3" finished) from last year. I still have LOTS more and will likely be making a few quilts using them. This one will be a little wallhanging for my sewing room, I think it's less than 40" square. Lula wants to get in the picture.

I noticed the magnolia trees started blooming yesterday, spring must be not far off.....woohoo.

Happy Quilting.
