In Our Garden Blocks 5 and 6

Here we are with Month Number Three of the

I am so excited to share with you
Blocks 5 and 6 by Doris of
 Quilting Queen Online

Block #5

Block #6

Doris is using bright and cheery colors from Timeless Treasures. 
The fabric is POP and it is just too cute.
I bet it will work for just about any quilty project.
The patterns for Blocks 5 & 6 are available for free
until the end of the month of April.
Go and check out her blog to see how to pick them up. 

She is also having a giveaway for

The Fat Quarter Shop!

I maybe received the pattern a bit in advance,
so that I could work them up with
my fabric selection:
 Riley Blake Calico Days by Lori Holt and
a few other Riley Blake fabrics.

I made a few slight changes in the applique block. 
I added an extra flower and
a little applique tulip to the watering can.

Here are the six blocks together.

I also created a bonus block a Bouquet of Tulips
for Thermoweb using their
HeatnBond Lite EZ Print Sheets.
You will never trace your applique patterns again. 

I think it looks perfect with the
In Our Garden Blocks.
You can find the pattern Here.

We would love for you to join us
and show off your blocks.

I truly do love those. 
No more tracing!! 

You can find the Bouquet of Tulips on my Craftsy pattern page,

A Bouquet of Daisies FInish

Last week, we had a bit of a blizzard pass through.
The kind of blizzard that causes
the power to be out.
10 plus hours to be out.
While I would have loved to hop
on my sewing machine and add
a couple more rows to the current quilt project,
Mother Nature was not going to let me.
I guess she knew I need to finish up
my crochet WIP.

So, I picked up my Bouquet of Daisies afghan,
and went to town on it.

 I was able to finish it up
and right before the electric
came back on.

Of course, I had to wait a day to take these pictures.
It doesn't look like much here, but
the drifts were quite large.

The only thing that I will miss about the snow is..
that is does make a beautiful backdrop.

The pattern for this afghan can be
found in the book Hooked on Crochet Afghans.

A Craftsy Tote

Craftsy asked if  I would like to try out one of their kits,
and I jumped at the offer.
I have bought fabric from Craftsy several times.
I just picked up this adorable set of Riley Blake Fat quarter bundle
for the block for the In Our Garden Block of the Month

But, I have never used a sewing or a quilting kit,
last weekend I tried a little
something different.

The kit that I was sent was this beautiful Rowan tote.

I received the pattern via email within just a few minutes,
and the fabric came before the week was through.

Everything was in the kit except for the thread,
button and the fusible fleece.

I have used the fusible fleece on several
other projects and I absolutely love working
with it.

The fleece has just the right loft to make your
quilting just pop.  I choose to quilt 1/4" from the seams
to show off the quilting rather than the recommended
stitching in the ditch.
I figure if I am going to spend all the time
quilting the tote, I might as well be able to see the quilting.

After a few hours of cutting, sewing, and quilting,
I was left with this super
fun tote bag.

This cutie was a given to my sister. 
She uses it all the time.
Makes me want to make myself one.
Which, I might just have to do.

Would I make another kit?
Yes, I found the kit easy to use
and quite enjoyable to stitch up.
I actually purchased a quilt kit from Craftsy.

Craftsy Logo

It is the Rowan Kaffe Fassett Collective Lovely Lattice Quilt.
I am really looking forward to starting on this
It is a little different than any other
quilts that I have made before.

Have you tried a Craftsy kit before?

Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop

It's hard to believe but this is
my 4th year of quilting.
I started off really small. 
It was a quilted bag, that
I entered into a competition with
 While I didn't win, it did
jump start this love of
Fabric and Thread
That makes me a Quilter. (I did make it to the top 10)
  Well, my blog name does say a lot as well.

Here is just a small bit of what
I have done in four years.

Designed and hand quilted by me. 
This is just one of my favorite quilts.

I also enjoyed finishing this
quilt up.  It was my WIP pile
deciding on exactly how I would like to
finish up.

And this pretty quilt named "Jared's Star" created for
a young man that recently
past away from lung cancer.
It was a very emotional quilt
to finish creating.

I also decided this year to head
up a blog hop, a new adventure
that makes me a bit Quilting Crazy.
Here are the first two month blocks,
You can find out more here.

Most of what I have created,
has gone to others, so I decided to make a little
something of my own.
Here is my very recent creation.

A little luck of the Irish to add to my table.
I finished it just in time to
enjoy over the last few day.

It is completely hand quilted.
I used HeatnBond Lite for
the clovers and then was able to
blanket stitch around the clover.
You can find some other great products to use over
at Thermoweb , where I contributing blogger at.

I am writing the pattern for this little cutie,
and would love to have a few pattern testers.
If you are interested, please contact me.
