quilt monday

I've been having a terrible time with my computer; I filled up my memory and can't access my pictures. I take LOTS of pictures lol.

I was going through my pictures when I found these and realized I had never shown them. So some Christmas in April today :)

I saw a block posted somewhere online last fall and knew I needed to make these. I'm pretty sure it took longer to hunt down the Christmas fabrics than it did to actually make the runners. 



Seriously, how cute are these? 


I kept the quilting simple and went with a meander.


I looooooove these fabrics.



I absolutely love how these turned out. I can see this being a popular go-to Christmas gift.


Perfection!

Calling all quilters!




There is a call for over 200 charity quilts to provide comfort for Broncos staff members, billet families, first responders, EMT, RCMP, Fire and other impacted in the communities of Humboldt and Tisdale and surrounding communities. 

You can either make a whole quilt or just a few blocks. 

Block: the block shown below made 12.5″ unfinished (12″ finished)
Colours: Any combination of the team colours:
Green, Dark Green, Gold, Black, and White.
Arrange and mix up the colours as you wish!
For example:


And if you make an entire quilt, I will quilt it for free. 

Deadline for quilts/blocks is May 18th. More details can be found HERE.


busy, busy

And not at all in a bad way :)

I got carried away and made more blocks for my True North quilt. Fingers crossed I can get the top together this week.

This quilt is going to be amazing!


And this. I finally finished my Swoon quilt top!


I may have gotten carried away with it since it measures 109x118!

And a little odds and ends project just because.


Looks like I need to book myself some time on the longarm soon.

I wanted to send a friend a little something as a thank you and just the way the pattern went, I was able to cut out two of the same quilt. So why not make both?


How cute are they?


As you can see, I kept the quilting simple and went with a crosshatch. I love how it compliments the quilt.


Those crisp bound corners.....

And now time to start something new!

This quilt. I was given the fabric by a friend a few years ago for Christmas and I knew what pattern I wanted to use. I finally sat down a few weeks ago and got it together.

quilted with Malachite 

I could not love this more.


And the quilting pattern. 
It has quickly become one of my favourites. 
I wasn't 100% sure about using it on this but so glad I went with it. I love the look.


I kept the binding simple and went with the same grey as the sashings. I love how it finishes the quilt right off. And that navy print. Love.


Baby isn't here yet which is a good thing so I can love this a little longer.

Happy Monday

I was given some mini charm packs which was perfect since I had just seen a project online that was perfect for them.


Isn't it fun?


I wanted to keep the quilting simple and went with my favourite of straight lines.


This crisp corner <3 p="">


Quick, cute and perfect.

I took part of Valentine's mini quilt swap and had to make my favourite Valentine Mini quilt.

And why make one when I can make two?


I used one of my favourite Thimbleblossom fabrics for backing.


I quilted one with a cross hatch and got lazy for the second and did just straight lines.


Finished them off with a nice red grunge fabric.


Simple perfection
