A Flurry Finish

I recently finished my Flurry quilt. I just love it!! The fabric is Flurry by Kate Spain for Moda. I used a disappearing nine patch pattern and it came together quickly but I just now got around to finishing it! (I completed the top a year or more ago)

 The back is a little hard to see in this pic but the fabric is tossed with Christmas trees, mittens, holly, candy and stars. It's so cute!

If I remember correctly I used five charm packs for this quilt. Its a super easy pattern :)

Thanks for stopping in!!

Christmas Finishes


 Thanks to Kelsey over at Kelsey Sews I was able to have these two quilts finished in time for Christmas gifts. I was wondering how on earth I was going to get everything done that I needed so I contacted her and she got them quilted super quick! Thanks Kelsey!

So up first is the music quilt. I chose these fabrics when my nephews major was something with music. Three degree changes later I decided hes getting the music quilt regardless of his degree.


Next up is the Superman quilt for my other nephew. For him I chose superman because when his was little he would walk around in a suit and only answer to Clark Kent. When the time was right he would go to his bathroom and change from the suit to his superman outfit and cape all while humming the theme song!


              I'm so glad I was able to get these completed before Christmas!

Humility Circle of Do Good Stitches

Recently I sadly left my circle of Do Good Stitches to start another circle called Humility. Our quilts will be going to the residents of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. A friend actually got me involved in this worthwhile cause. For those of you who are unaware the Pine Ridge Reservations houses approximately 18,000 Native Americans. The reservation is stricken with alcoholism and poverty. The unemployment rate on the reservation is 80 percent. One in every four children on the reservation will be born with fetal alcohol syndrome. Many of the homes are nothing more than shacks with no heat or electric. Some may ask why these people would not leave the reservation but we all know how difficult it is to break free from generations of this type of behavior.
I chose the name Humility because I was told in Native American culture to give a blanket shows Humility. Our quilts will go to those in need in all stages of life but the social worker who delivers these is aware that our focus is more toward the children and teens. 
Anyhoo, there are ten of us making two blocks each month and you can see our progress in our  Flickr Group. 
Here are my November and December Blocks... 
 

If you ever get a hankering to make a quilt for charity I would be glad to send it out to the reservation for you! Just let me know!
Thanks for stopping in!

Sunshine Quilt Finished

The Sunshine Quilt is finished for the Heal circle of Do God Stitches. I think this will brighten anyone's day! 


 I had asked each of the  members to make two blocks of their choice using only the colors white and yellow. I just love the heart block!


I sent it to Kelsey to work her long arm magic and she even hid the word love in the quilting!
She does a wonderful job!


I am so pleased with this quilt and I know it will bring joy to the person who receives it.

Thanks for stopping in!!

Pattern Testing

Recently I was able to test out the amazing soon to be released pattern by Freckle Mama.
Here is my version of the quilt... 


My quilt was made using the collection Madhuri and you can find it here in my shop.

 I love this pattern! Its a great way to showcase large scale prints and its super quick. You can have an entire quilt top in a day! It doesn't get much faster than that!

Watch her blog for more information on when the final pattern is coming out. 

Thanks for stopping in!!
