We just had a long weekend, Family Day.
I was thrilled to get to spend some time with some fabric.
I decided to make a baby quilt for a teacher at school and wanted to use just stash fabrics.
While pulling fabrics for that, I got sidetracked by something else.
And started a (late) Valentine's day quilt.
A very productive weekend!
My leaf block obscene continues.
This quilt occurred by accident. I was pulling fabrics for my bigger leaf quilt when this grey fabric fell out of my cabinet and love!
The fabrics I used in this might be some of my favourites.
That black leaf?? Perfection.
But this orange?
I wanted a swirly, windy feel to the quilt so I used Flirtatious for the quilting.
I didn't plan to quilt this as soon as I had finished the top.
But it turned out, I had a piece of batting the exact size I needed
and this piece of fabric was perfect for the backing.
I think I need another.
Usually January is a quite month for longarming for me. Except for this year. My quilters have been keeping me busy and the quilts they are piecing? Stunning.
Here's a few.

Now back to work!
I was procrastinating the other day and was rummaging through my fabric stash when some inspiration hit.
So quick and fun!
And the perfect new quilt for our kitchen table.
The white has a shimmer to it, so pretty when the light hits it.
I fussy cut the border so the I love you, is all in the correct direction.
I wanted to keep the quilting simple,
so I used my favourite heart panto, Folk Heart.
The simplicity is perfection.
Happy Love Week.
Boy3 has been after me to make him a new bed quilt. I made him a gorgeous batik quilt when he turned 16, sadly the fabrics has not held up(and the fabrics were NOT cheap). He gave me some ideas on what colours he wanted and left it with me.
I wanted to do a two colour quilt, a solid, two colour quilt.
And I had the perfect pattern.
Mod Charms by QuiltyLove. So quick and fun!
I have made this a few times now.
And each time I love it more.
A solids version might be my favourite.

I backed it with a brushed cotton, not as warm as flannel but still cozy.
I think I need to make another.
