Well this has been a big year of quilting for me. I first learned to quilt in order to make something special for my son. I finished his first quilt when he was 4 months old. He is almost 3 now and was blessed with a little sister who is a year and a half. When I learned I was having a girl quilting went into high gear. I have made them both lots of quilts (no sign of slowing down) and sold some of my quilts. I think this year I have made 23 quilts. Whew but I love every moment.
I currently have at least 6 left to bind a quilt top to finish, one to start, a pillow to finish and placemats to make (those are for the Christmas table) and 3 quilts to quilt.   My goal is to finish them by dec 31st so I can start pretty much fresh in 2015.
Here are the 2 projects I worked on today
This beautiful red and black quilt is a gift for my mother's birthday (Dec 24th) it started off with 4 fabrics but I quickly decided to just go with the 2 and make it dramatic. Her favourite colour is red so I know she will love it. I also love this gorgeous pattern from Moda you can get it free from their site. I would be finished it but I didn't get enough black lol so I am just waiting for it to arrive so this quilt top can be finished. 
This sweet pixelated heart is being made as a baby quilt using my favourite ombré fabric from V&co just love the shades of pink. She makes beautiful fabrics. So this was some of the fun stuff I worked on today. Quilting brings me so much joy.

Well today, is a quiet day, ok well quiet moment. Mr Minion had one surgery today, one minion is at school the other with her Nonna. I thought I would pop on to share some of the quilts I made earlier this year. I am working on a bunch of projects right now, finishing a commissioned baby quilt and teachers gifts. I will post pics of those as they are done.

lately I have been working on my WIP's. As quilters we have way too many of these as we often start a new project long before the last one is even close to completion. I have managed though to finish 2 very large projects that I started months ago.

This is my supernova quilt (and my puggle) I had to stand way up my stairs to get this pic as this is a huge queen size quilt. I was first inspired to make this one I saw a pic on Instagram in these colours, it was a block made for a charity quilt and I fell in love. I do love a big block quilt though they do still take time. The pattern is from Freshly Pieced and I have made several …
Well 2016 was a whirlwind, my first minion started jk and my second started daycare a few days a week. Adjusting to those schedules was interesting but we made it and here we are halfway through 2017! I have been sewing a ton, way more than I can even remember lol hopefully I can post some of interest .

This was my first finish of 2016. The giant vintage star, I just love how it turned out it is still one of my very favourite quilts (ok yeah most of them are my favourite ever lol)
This Norway quilt is one of my favourites, I used kona solids in Navy, Azure and Graphite. I love using solids in quilts and this turned out fantastic
Ah the swoon one of my favourite patterns. This was made for my daughter. I used all Vanessa Christendon fabrics I love her stuff especially her ombre
This is a memorial quilt for a dear friend who lost her son. His middle name was Fox and I hope it brings her some comfort 
My first ever on point quilt, I made this for a friend I lobe the classic but beautiful…
So a few weeks ago my hubby (mr. Minion) mentioned to me that while I have made a lot of quilts he himself has never received one. What's this you say? Ok well let me rectify that situation my honey. So I know Mr Minion is a huge fan of Star Wars so Boom! Idea received. Hubby will be getting this quilt (once finished) in time for Christmas
In this pic it is still missing the last 2 rows but they are on now and the quilt top is done!! He will be so surprised! The pattern is from Iron Violet Designs I am also so happy I found the perfect backing for it as fast as I did. I usually agonize over finding the perfect backing but I found this within a few days of finishing the top and got it ordered 😃
