Showing posts from December, 2014
And here it is 😃 my final quilt top of 2014. After seeing another another quilt I started and never finished (1of 3 I can actually think of where the tops are not complete) I am a little tempted to bring it up to work on but at some point I have to stop right? I mean there is always tomorrow 😃. Happy New Year 🎉
Well here it is 😃 the last day of 2014. Still trying to finish some outstanding projects before the new year begins. Ok ok yeah I did decide on like Dec 27th to make a baby quilt I really didn't need to make just wanted to. I have one more quilt top to finish piecing and some backing to prep but that's it for 2014 then :)
This first one is the baby quilt I just had to make. I love it! It features the gorgeous Miss Kate line from Thimble Blossoms by Bonnie and Camille. It's just so happy 😃
 This 2nd one I started oh my goodness back in March 2014 I think. It was only missing the borders so I added them and now this quilt top is done 😃 it's for my son I love it! It features the Vintage Verona line  from Riley Blake.

So today I finish one more quilt top and then piece the backing for my mom's quilt and then, well, that's a wrap. Everything else will have to wait for 2015. Can you believe I already have a to do list for January lol. Anyone else trying to finish …
Oh and here is my plan for January 😃 wish me luck I hope to get it all done 😬 lots of finishing to do in January. Only 2 new quilts to start
Wow my last post was Dec 5th! Have been super busy since then :) finished my mom's other pillow I made her and also 8 placemats I sold and then started to hand bind my own placemats. Christmas was a blast 😃🎄 my kids had do much fun despite being sick. Now it's rest time before 2015 makes it's way here already have a quilting plan for January 😃 goal is to use my stash as much as is possible in 2015 and I hope to adhere to it, except when the new color theory is released, I plan to buy a lot then :) hope you all had a wonderful Christmas 🎅

Here it is. My very first pillow ever let alone also using a zipper closure. Learned a lot making this will for sure make more. This is for my mom for Christmas, it goes with the quilt I made her for Mother's Day. The pattern is the contact print pillow from Crazy Mom Quilts (she is pretty darn awesome just like this pillow :) find the pattern here http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.ca/2014/02/contact-print-pillow-tutorial.html?m=1
My mom will love it so happy I got at least this finished in time lol
Boy oh boy December hit me hard with finishing projects!!! I have managed to finish piecing my placemats, and just today finished my mom's quilt top for her birthday on Dec 24th. I won't finish it because it is getting long armed. I still need to finish her pillow for Christmas (mom doesn't read my blog at least not yet lol so I'm safe to spill the beans) plus I have 2 baby quilts to quilt and bind oh and start the mini quilt for my mini swap with the awesome Schnitzel and Boo. My mom's gorgeous quilt is the moda love pattern which was designed for a layer cake which is obviously not what I used lol. My mom's favourite colour is red and she loves this Nancy Crow red so I said ok let's go dramatic  so here it is. I love it. Like all my quilts hard to say good bye to but she deserves it.
And here is a completed placemat top I used Jan Shade Beach because well I love her Christmas line pretty much every year. See my little utensil pocket? I love these can'…
