Finally ....

I've been working on this quilt top for months. I was never satisfied with how the snow ball blocks matched up with the star blocks. I have resewn them at least three times. It's done now and am really pleased. I auditioned several border fabrics and settled on the black and white print. I got this quilt idea from a pamplet cover; no pattern.

For the quilt kitty lovers a picture of Tinker Belle inspecting a baby quilt that has gone to its owner.

Baby Girl Quilt

I put this small baby girl quilt together today. The shower is fastly approaching. All from stash.

On another note I finally got a batch of home made bread (including grinding flour) to come out perfect. DH ate as much bread as me. Yum....

New Ruler New Flimsy

I finally made time to play with a new ruler from Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful. I used it to make the curved 9 patche blocks and surrounding area. After many choices I made pin wheel blocks to connect the curved petal blocks.

The instructions were very well written and I believe Jenny will post new patterns on her blog. She is a awesome long arm quilter as well.

This ruler opens up many possibilites. I'll be using it for something scrappy real soon.

Class Project and a pretty quilt

The scrappy quilt was made from a bag of scraps a fellow quilter gifted me. I added the brown diagonal sashing, brown border, then a nice floral border. Quilted with bountiful feathers - a great panto.

I am teaching my wonky stars and house at fall retreat. I already have the large lap size quilt but decided to make this cute wall hanging. This way my students can go home with a wall hanging top. I will finish this up next weekend. The picture doesn't do it justice.

Has been a really busy weekend. Have gotten lots accomplished, 2 charity quilts and a queen size quilted.
