Boy oh boy seems fall just crept up on me. I had a great summer though! Playing with my minions and of course quilting. The minions seem very interested in quilting so I let them sew whenever I can. I am posting some of the quilts I worked on over the summer right up until yesterday lol. 
Below is the plus quilt I made as a quilt along the pattern is from Jelli Quilts but I supersized the baby quilt and made it 50x60" every fabric is from my stash. I love how it turned out and can't wait to have it long armed 

 This baby swoon is my fave. I love how it turned out. I love ombre fabric so much. I can't wait for the backing to come in so I can quilt it

 This sweet feminine baby swoon will be the perfect addition to a little girls room. It is just so delicate and pretty

I love heart quilts . They are just gorgeous, this one is 45x45 perfect for cuddling with.

I jumped on the hedgehog bandwagon. I started with this mini and have now made 5 of them, they are just too cute 

The arrow quilt. Oh how I love thee. Using graded colours in Kona cotton this turned out beautiful. This is a throw size, I made it in queen size first lol

I love how this baby boy quilt turned out just so soft and elegant 

I started this quilt 2 years ago, just brought it back out to try to finish. Got 2 more rows on it with 2 more to go before it's done 

I love this Raspberry kiss mini quilt I made for a swap. I think I need to make a bigger one for me. 

This teeny tiny pineapple mini measures only 10.5" I love how cute it is 

Go big or go home, I started my first arrow quilt as a queen size and love it,,,,,, 

Finally got the top done for one Minion's Cheistmas present now to start the next 

Made myself a giant starburst in another colorsay. It's off bring long armed now 

My mom's quilt is back from being long armed and looks amazing! 

Charlotte's Irish chain was her birthday present 

Coop's hourglass was for his birthday 

This is the beginning of the next birthday present lol

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 😃
