Welcome to the 2016 Quilt Along !

Hi!!! If your here from The Enchanting Rose Welcome!!!!  If you have never been to Stephanie's blog, go and check it out.  She is very sweet and inspirational and she throws a link party every Tuesday, and all the blogs are WONDERFUL!!!! Go check it out!

Okay so I heard ya!!  And so we will play.  If your new to this feel free to jump in at any time! 
Here is how we play:

On the first of the month I post a challenge either by pattern or color from the book
101 Fabulous Small Quilts by That Patchwork place.  You can find it on Amazon if you don't have it yet. Then on the by the first of the next month you get your picture uploaded to me via email at

Tildagirl at msn dot com

I will in turn make all the photos into a Cyber Parade of all the lovelies!!!  It can be a flimsy (quilt top) or it can be the finished product. And right before the parade begins I will announce the next months pattern!!  Simple!  Anyone can join at anytime.  When you submit your photo to me please include your name and where your from....its always nice to see how far away the players are!!!  Sooooooo I did pick a quilt top to play with IF you want to DUE by FEBRUARY 1st.  IF you have time......not to worry if you don't.  I just picked an easy one and thought well, lets do a practice run.  So for this quicky one I chose

MAPLE SUGAR HEARTS found on page 62.  You choose whatever color you please...I thought it would be a fun one to crank out for Valentines day coming up!!! 

Now I just so happened to find an AWESOME little quilt book by Jo  Morton and was gonna throw out some challenges from time to time for those that want to play along.  The book was Just release and I had Preordered just arrived yesterday, I am feeling pretty lucky!!! The little quilts are so adorable!!!  I will definitely be making a lot if not all of them....

So for Christmas my hubby pulled a fast one on see I have a black Featherweight 221 that he gifted me with the table on our 18th wedding anniversary 10 years ago and it is beautiful and purrs like a kitten.  Well for Christmas he found ANOTHER for me BUT this one is not as available....because it is Beige in color!  They are hard to find and this one is in INCREDIBLE condition......the case, attachments and original instruction book are in PERFECT condition and don't smell!!  If you have experienced one you know they tend to have an odor to them.....the machine itself doesn't have any blemishes and is just so beautiful....So I thought I would share a picture of the lovely right here. 

And lastly here is a picture of my Hubba Hubba Hubby, hehe  still giddy for him after 28 years....he was waiting for me as I browsed in one of the stores......One of us and one of the fountains here at The Village where we decided to take a stroll and enjoy the was a lovely evening.

Okay so until next time, actually the first of February or sooner!
