June 1st Quilt along Parade

What?  It's JUNE 1st. Where did 2017 take off too?  I find as I get older time just whizzes by and doesn't care if it's fast to me, but when I was soooo very young all I could do is watch the clock and the hands of time never moved...lol.  Anyone there with me?

EDIT:  If you just found us or are wanting more info on the quiltlaong here is the breakdown of the Quiltalong in this post....we are working from these two books this year and you can join at any time!!!!

QUILTALONG INFORMATION

But for today I have a lovely show of small quilts to share with you!  This was a simple quilt but fun to put together and it went fast right along with 2017...they must have been holding hands! Haha

So let us begin with a lovely parade by some very talented quilters!

First up we have Cathys colorful top!  Very pretty nice colors they just pop and look so cheerful!



Next up in a beautiful Blue and cream is Judy's...she wrote It measures 12” by 14”.  It was fun to make.Real nice Job Judy!  You can find her blog here:  http://smallquiltsanddollquilts.blogspot.com


 and next up is Robin, here's what she said... Split Squares with some French General charm squares I had on hand.  I used fewer blocks so it measures about 16.5 x 20 inches.

And lastly Mine, I must confess I have had  my top finished for some time now  but didn't quilt it yet..... I am hoping to complete it sometime this week....but for now this is what I have.....I made it original size and after seeing the smaller version I wish I would have made mine smaller as well!

Beautifully done ladies!!!!  And now for next months challenge we go to the Small and Scrappy book by Kathleen Tracy....turn to page 20-21 and find your "BLUE AND WHITE!"


I think this is so darling and can't wait to make it look antique.....maybe even hand quilt it!!! 
Can't wait to see what you come up with....remember you can join at any time...just email me your photo of your finished quilt or quilttop  before the last day of the month along with a link to your blog.  See you all soon and enjoy all the eye candy!!!

Happy Mail Day!!!

Don't you love it when you get fun stuff in the mail? Even if you sent it to yourself... hehe.
Well today was THAT day for me.  I love shopping at Fat Quarter Shop. Such great turn around time and great products!  I was floating around the web drooling at some other quilts blogs and when I was poking around Camilles blog she was raving about Little House pins. So I went on a search and FQS had them! So I decided a little retail therapy was in order! Let me first say I did call my local Quilt shops and neither of the two had any, so I turned to the web.  I support local when I can because these people are our neighbors so try to support local when you can!

Anyway... I will just leave you with some eye candy.  Here is what I purchased



Little House Pins


Moda Tin Boxes




I absolutely love those Moda tin boxes...I have many of them and they are so handy!  The pins are so very sharp and go in like Butta, and that fabric....sigh...Lori Holt knows how to design what I like
Right from inside my head! LOL. I will be back soon with more to show you, because I had another day of happy Mail.....until then....

Quilt Along May 2017

Hi everyone!  Hope your all well and still with me.  Had to take a bit of a break to deal with some pretty serious stuff.  Now things have settled down a bit and we are finding our new normal.  So the last Quilt along was not well received which kind of surprised me but only Robin, Mandy and I participated.  Nonetheless I am still going to showcase our quilts and issue the new Challenge for the June Quiltalong.  So we left off with The Disappearing Four Patch.

Here is Robins, beautiful job as always with her quilting!  Nice job Robin

Mandy used lovely soft colors of white and lavender


And now mine
I decided to double the width just because no real reason...lol 
 I love the way it showcases my candle holder, gives it a kind of Little house on the prairie feel. 

So that was the big show.  Now onto next month.....Due on or before May 31st for the June first show.

I do hope you participate, now we are getting back on track!

Okay so hop on into your book

and open to page 21

This is a really fun project!  Hope to see what different fabrics you all come up with!!! See you all soon~~ Until then, enjoy the sunshine!





August Quilt Along Parade........FINALLY!!!

Okay friends I know its the 15th of August and there hasn't been any communications from me.......Why you ask?  Well have you every clea...
