Good morning everyone!
Today is a PD day for the kids so we are all at home having fun together. Only 9 days left in school this year. Hard to believe how fast it has all gone. I can't believe I haven't posted some of the quilts I finished earlier this year so here they are

This mini sewing machine was made for a good friend I actually have never met. Conni and I met on Instagram and have become great friends. Hopefully one day we will get the chance to meet in person. The pattern for this mini quilt is from Fat Quarter shop. I just love how it turned out

This quilt was made for my Son's 5th birthday. I make them 2 quilts a year, one each for Christmas and one for their birthday. He requested these colours and I knew exactly what pattern. This quilt would not have come together without the help of the Instagram community. A bunch of lovely quilters from Canada and the US helped me by sending me blocks so that I could get this finished in time. I love it, I backed it in Fireside cuddly fabric (his birthday is in February so cuddly is perfect) and I used a modified cross hatch to quilt it. The pattern is Tic Tac Toe from Blossom Heart Quilts

Also in February I completed this beautiful starburst. This quilt was commissioned by my mother as a gift for her best friend off over 40 years. Her friends favourite colour is red but I determined that would be a little too much red so I broke it up with a little aqua to soften it and I think it came out perfectly! The pattern is a modified version of the starburst from Missouri Star Quilts I used my go to Kona white and various red and aqua fabrics from my stash

So after these quilts happened I had to get back to making bee block and creating other new quilts. Some tops of which I finished in the last week. I will be posting pictures of them very soon. Stay Tuned!

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 😃
