Lil Twister Heart

Has it really been a week already? I bet you've heard that one before... I made the little twister heart I think last year but didn't do anything with it. With Feb just around the corner, I pulled this out and finished it into a small wallhanging. I've hung it in my kitchen above the cabinets on this old window frame. Now if I only had more in a similar size to change it out each month.

Happy Quilting!

Little Bits

It's been a quiet start to 2014. I'm working on machine quilting my 4patch quilt. I'm happy with how it's looking so far.
Quilt Mania has come out with Simply Vintage in English starting with Issue No. 8 which I found at Chapters book store on Christmas eve. No I don't shop on Christmas Eve but my daughter was working that day and we stopped in to see her.  While waiting I was browsing the magazine section and found the Autumn Issue. Last week she found the Winter Issue for me. This magazine is FULL of projects, you won't be disappointed.
Doing a little redwork. These are Sunbonnet Sue's for each month. I'm working on June now, they go pretty fast.

Happy Quilting!

Le Jardin Another Block

Finished another block for Le Jardin quilt, I think this is the biggest block so far. At least it seemed to take me a long time to stitch. Haven't done any embellishment on these blocks, I'll wait until they are all done.
Started working on some of the Sew Along blocks. These are in the Feb 2014 issue of Better Homes and Garden Quilt Magazine. The blocks are super scrappy and take a fair bit of time for each block. Haven't decided yet how many of these I will make, the pattern shows 20 but I'm pretty sure mine will be less than that.

Happy Quilting.

Happy New Year!

Just popping in to say to all my friends near and far, All the Best for 2014! I don't make resolutions as I know it won't happen and I don't want to disappoint myself.  Your posts bring me joy, even if I can't always comment. Thank You for your continued friendships and I look forward to the wonderful inspiration you provide me throughout the year. My list is ever growing because of you!

Lula is only looking slightly annoyed, she usually runs away when I try and take her picture. She was so comfortable in this bag I was making, she didn't move. I can always count on her when it's time to cuddle.
