Fabric and Fabric and Fabric

I was at my favourite LQS on Monday.And as I perused the aisles, touching this, oohing at that… I got to wonderings….. What is it about us quilters…? we see GORGEOUS prints….  we coo and sigh, and pet them, and (or, is that just me??)  keep them neatly, tidily folded sitting quietly on our shelf. Until… We catch that creative bug…the gleam in our eye….standing tall in the doorway of our creative space…rotary cutter in hand…. And we get the primal urge to rip and tear and shred….(sorry, just me??)…

Snowflake Starburst Quilt

This snazzy little quilt was a labour of love, let me tell ya. A donation for a silent auction to raise funds for a local Irish Dance School; and it ended up raising quite a bit of money. YAY! I used my favourite Wax Cotton print for the backing. It just looks so snazzy, but elegant. I had troubles fussy cutting to get Elsa AND Anna; so I improvised a patch of the two of them. Close up of the diamonds; I FMQ’d in the diamonds; they were a bit…

Febby-yarry WIP Wednesday! Whee!

Whoa. Wasn’t it Christmas, like, yesterday?????? I certainly had a big list of stuff to finish, and I’m proud to say, I *did* get nearly everything done. I know, insane. The King Size quilt nearly killed me. It certainly finished off my old machine. BUT … there was nothing more warm & fuzzy than opening my email inbox on the 26th and reading thank yous from recipients of my quilts, and seeing the faces of the folks that I was with that day who got quilts. And other projects. Laugh.…
