Itty Bitty Houses!

This months block for
Quiltmaker Magazine Quilty Pleasures
"Itty Bitty Block Along"
are these super duper cute little houses!

Talk about a scrap buster! 
These were so easy to cut out
and sew up!
I love this row so much!
I think my favorite ones are the black houses
with the little pink flowers, looks like the
houses have little flower beds outside of them.
So fun!

Another Spider Web Finish!

Bonnie Hunter addict here!

I finished my second Spider Web quilt.  I follow the free

This one is done with the center kites all made with
various neutral fabrics (I had 3 gallon size bags of those!).  I then
just dipped into my string bin and went crazy crazy crazy!!

I made 35 blocks, so its a nice big quilt.  The longarm quilting
is quite large so the quilt has a wonderful drape.  Its also backed
in a navy blue floral flannel so its very cozy!

Heres a couple of close ups of some of my favorite
love love those cute Smiley faces and pumpkins!

and in pure Bonnie Hunter fashion, I have pumpkins next to
calicos & polka dots next to reindeers!!

I love these funky colorful crazy quilts!

A Patriotic Finish!

This finish has been a long time coming...this quilt
was a flimsy for almost 2 years! 

This was a quilt made in a Quilt-a-long that was hosted
by Melissa of Happy Quilting Blog...I actually made two of
these, one a patriotic version and one in more modern pinks and
 lime greens (that one is still a flimsy).

I am  happy to report that the patriotic version is complete and SOLD!

It turned out GORGEOUS, I am so proud of it!
It measures in at 85x85! A biggie!

  It is going to a friends Maid of Honor at her wedding this summer.  The
 Maid of Honor actually lives in London and loves Red, White & Blue! 

She is so excited to give her this gift and I was happy to make it happen!! 

Heres another photo of the entire quilt...I stood on a chair in
the hospital lobby to get this photo, thank goodness people dont even
blink when they see me doing things like this!  Ha!
Its a great finish and I am so proud of this quilt!

RSC Flimsy!

Last year for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014, I 
made Churn Dash blocks each month...I decided
to sash the blocks and use extra scraps of 3 1/2" blocks
for cornerstones..

Then when I went to put them all together of course I didnt think
it was big enough and I dont really care for a 
square I made 8 more blocks to spread the color around a little bit...

This is the how it gives a stained glass look!

Heres a close up of a few of the blocks...I lost some points...argh..
I am still learning how to trim those darn Hst's...I'm getting there!

Thanks for stopping by!
