Well it's funny isn't it, I was quilting like crazy right up until an hour before dinner on the 31st of Dec. January came and well we are almost halfway through it and aside from quilting the quilt for my mini quilt swap today is the first day I have really been back to quilting. Today I started to finish the patchwork quilt I started for my son almost 5 months ago. It's a simple patchwork, I did a smaller version for my etsy shop (baby size) loved it so much and had some left over that I said hey why not make one for my minion. I love patchwork quilts, all quilts are beautiful they don't all have to be insanely difficult and fussy just filled with the love and effort of the maker. So the patchwork quilt top will be finished tomorrow but thinking of adding some borders to it "special it up" a bit. My very first quilt was a patchwork for him, I've come a long way since then but I know he will love it. Plus I'm happy to be using fabric from my stash instead of letting it just sit there and collect. What are your January projects? Continuing with lots from 2014 or moving right into new stuff from 2015?

Oh and in other awesome news my very favourite designers latest line was released today!!! I got this email 
And literally jumped up and down since I have been waiting forever for this line!!!! I 💞 V&co she is amazing so I have placed a large order to be sure. Which designers do you love and need to have? Between Kona (love solids) and V&co I could be happy for a long time.

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 😃
