We had a great Easter long weekend. I was able to spend some time with my sewing machine but not as much as I wanted.
I'm about halfway through assembling my Swoon quilt blocks.
And I learned that it doesn't matter how many times you've made a Swoon block, you need to use your full attention.
I love how the block looks square instead of round. All it took was an HST in the wrong spot.
And I picked up a few new temptations.
I did not mean to disappear for so long. The weirdest thing happened, my computer did a update. Normally not a big deal. But this time? The boys Xbox Live updated at the same time. When they changed the password, since my email is tagged to their account, I was completely locked out of my computer.
I did have keep busy though
I had one or two things to keep me occupied
I even played with some old friends
And sometimes other thought they were helping
It's good to be back
Is in full swing here and there isn't a lot of sewing going on lol.
But I have been keeping busy lately quilting and since it has been too long since I've shown some client quilts, here we go!
Up first, this gorgeous quilt Cindy made for her daughter's 16th birthday.
The straight line quilting was the perfect choice.
I love the fabrics Sherri used in this quilt.

This quilting pattern has quickly become one of my favourites.
This is Nikki's second quilt ever.

Again, love the fabrics and the panto

Conni's gorgeous plus quilt

Conni was lucky to get this one back ;)
And the back, stunning!
Lastly, this lovely quilt by Pat
|quilted with Trailing Vine|
Now it's back to some spring break fun!
Thanks for looking :)
I've finished up five swoon blocks. I'm not sure how big I want the quilt to be so for right now, I'm just making blocks and will see what happens.
I also can't stop rearranging the fabric for the last blocks.
I've gotten some progress with this
And what's one more project to play with?
There were so many cute Valentine's Day quilts floating around the interwebs and I finally gave into temptation and made these two cuties.
First, this mini quilt.
I originally thought the cream pieces were too distracting but now I really like it. I think a quilt made in this block would be adorable. Maybe next year?
I kept the quilting simple and went with a water stitch. Quick and easy.
And how perfect is this binding?
And this little runner.
I love this so much. The colours, the quilting. It is just perfect.
Love the crosshatching!!
And I had just enough teal fabric for the binding. Meant to be!
Finished up some more TrueNorth Bee blocks.
The left star, the fabric has quilt block names in it. Couldn't resist using it.
Now I'm all caught up :)
I finished up another one of these.
Looking forward to getting this quilted up and surprising the recipient with it.
Managed to sneak in a sewing day with a friend earlier in the week and finally got started on my 'epic' Swoon quilt.
1 block down, 19 to go!
Over the Christmas holidays, I made a few little gifties to send off as surprises for some friends.
The middle one was for a girl friend down in California and the bottom one for a friend in Saskatchewan.
I love how different it looks by reversing the solid background to a print.
That stripey binding #love.
And straight line quilting? Perfection
I'm thinking this last one needs to stay with me.
Someone else agrees.
