We had a holiday yesterday. I had all these quiltie plans in mind. And instead, I got zero sewing done. Absolutely nothing. Good thing I got some things finished up during the snow days we had last week. And did I mention it is still snowing? Love it!
I finished up this kit from Christmas.
Looking forward to snuggling under it this coming Christmas.
I got caught up on my TrueNorth blocks.
I was a wee bit behind again lol.
And I started something new.
Bring on more snow days!
It's been snowing off and on the past few days. Since yesterday afternoon, it's been more on than off. Yay! So I've gotten to spend some time with my sewing machine. Never a bad thing!
I started a JellyBean quilt with a jelly roll of PB&J.
Unfortunately I read the directions wrong and ended up with two smaller quilts instead of one big one lol.
I wanted a new Valentine's Day quilt and ended up with this.
And started something new.
Now back to the sewing machine!
I love how by just changing fabrics, the same quilt can look so different.
Susan and Denise took the same sampler class and brought both their quilts in for longarming.
This is Susan's.
Isn't it gorgeous?

Susan added some embroidery to two of the blocks.
Denise made her quilt for her parents.
I used a panto that I have never used before and absolutely love how it turned out.

The texture is amazing.
Can not wait to use this one again.
I made a few of these runners as gifts last year but I wanted one for myself that would be bigger. I finished it up in November and didn't actually get it quilted until Christmas Eve. And the binding didn't go on until New Years lol.
I absolutely love how it turned out.
And these fabrics.

I went with a feather panto instead of Christmas.
And the black and silver binding....
And Gizmo likes it too.
It has been waaaaaay too long since I've shown off some client quilts.
Marianne did this quilt out of ties, isn't it fantastic?
We kept the quilting simple and went with a really large meander.
This was a fun one.
Susan was lucky to get it back ;)

I won't wait so long to show more next time!
First off, sorry for the terrible pictures. We went to a wedding in the wilderness and thought I could get pics of the quilt there but it was so dusty I didn't dare lay the quilt down or hold it up and risk getting it dirty. Now onto the quilt!
I made lots of quilts similar to this in 2018.
So quick and the simplicity works.
Sometimes simpler is really better.
The bride's favourite colour is yellow and I have a thing for yellow and grey. This could not have worked out better.
I used shadowprints to soften up the solidness.
And the quilting.....

I will admit I was not entirely in love with the backing but the choices were limited and my time was short.
Simple and elegant.
I adore how this turned out.
