FREE PATTERN...


Yesterday at Heritage Quilting, Glynis was busy sewing the binding on this sweet quilt!  We all commented on how cute it was...in fact we loved everything about this small quilt...especially the way that it is off centre...and that adorable basket...with the star!



 Well...consider this your lucky day...because it's a FREE Buggy Barn PATTERN, which you can download HERE!!  Make sure you head on over for a look because there are OTHER free patterns to check out!  And let me tell you, there are some SWEET ones too!  Just thank Glynis for the heads up!  We quilters have to look out for each other because gawd forbid that we should ever run out of SWEET patterns! :o)))

Have a terrific Tuesday and Happy Quilting!~P

This and That...

Is there an elephant in the room?  


Nope...it's a modern quilt made for a modern girl about to graduate...hanging over my exercise bike..(Hey, that bike is good for something!) I picked grey Kona and Tula Pink "Chipper" fabric...it's pressed and ready for quilting!  I know...not a very good picture...but it's the best I've got for a sunny Monday...stay tuned!

And on the design wall are these sweet baskets...the Free Mystery BOM from Linen Closet Blog...all stitched and waiting pretty for the next two blocks!  This is such a fun Mystery BOM!

 Also stitched and waiting for the next set of blocks is Buttermilk Basin's Mystery BOM...

See the snowflake...without the snowman's head...
 I couldn't decide whether to put the head of the snowman inside the snowflake or not...I kind'a like it plain...BUT it will all depend on the other 'filler blocks'!
And with the head....

There you have it!  It was a busy weekend... and the beginning of a brand new month! YIKES! The days months are flying by!  May promises to be an even busier quilting month, as there is the Victoria Quilt Show on May 6 and 7th (that's this FRIDAY and Saturday)  and Heritage's 'Hands Across the Border' is on the 16th...we are hosting the other Island guilds this year!  This event is ALWAYS fun!
SEW there you have it!  The ups and downs of the needle...as the fabric turns!  Stay tuned...

Have a marvelous Monday and Happy Stitching!~P

Playing...

After seeing Bonnie Hunter's 'Words of Inspiration' this morning, I was like a dog possessed...going after that illusive SQUIRREL!  Under those words of inspiration was an antique nine patch quilt with a very unusual setting...and...I do have those random nine patches in a tote waiting patiently for an unusual setting!

I was on my hands and knees before I knew what hit me!  Playtime...




Now picture neutral rectangles and squares...OH heck...Just go over to Bonnie's and have a look at the original setting!  Great...eh?!  I need to tie some batting around my knees...this is a killer!  The things we quilters do!

Have a sunny Sunday (check:o) and happy stitching!~P  Now where's my bin of neutrals?
