Purple Sage top completed

I finished the "Purple Sage" top the other day. It will be going on our Ca king after it has been quilted. I will be sending this one out to the longarm quilter that I use. It is way too big for me to quilt on my little machine.



It is so big that I could get a complete picture of it. There is another diamond border on the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by.

Playing with Scraps - updated

WOW it has been over a year since I started this scrappy adventure. You can find earlier posts HERE, HERE and HERE. Yesterday I finished the FMQ. That took about a week on my domestic machine. I am hoping to have the binding on by this weekend if all goes as planned.



Thanks or stopping by.

Sports Fan pillow

Hey guys, I thought I show you a great gift for that sports fan in your life. It can be made with team fabric and coordinating colors or just make it with team colors. This is my SF Giants pillow. 



It is a 15" block made into an 18" pillow. I still need to get the pillow foam for it. I put it in a 16" pillow form so everyone could see it better. If I get interest on how to make this one, I will write up a free pattern for it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Ashley's baby quilt

This baby quilt was a quick project. I started out with a remnant piece of fabric. This fabric had 6 almost 12" squares on it. I cut out each square at 11½". I added sashing and borders and voila, quick and cute baby quilt. Check out the remnants bin at the store you never know what you may find.

Sports themed quilt

I just finished a sports themed  quilt for one of my husband's coworkers. I am so loving the way it turned out that I might make a pattern for it but using a focal fabric instead. I would love to hear your thoughts.



The quilting was done by Anneke Wheaton from The Last Stitch longarm quilting.

Mocha Joe

Here is another quilt pattern that I tested for TQPM . I really recommend getting a subscription to this online quilt magazine if you haven't already. 

Mocha Joe is designed by Isobel Meekins. This is a great project for beginners. Check it out in the December 2016 issue.

Sorry I haven't posted

Wow November has just flown by. I have been busy, busy, busy. My husband who I love dearly, has a friend who asked about commissioning a quilt. He told him upfront what the fabric and quilting would cost and on top of that price would be the labor. This guy didn't blink an eye at the cost, he handed my husband $200.00 deposit for fabric to get started. The quilt has 4 different sports teams in it so I did a simple pattern. It is now at the quilters. As soon as it returns and I get the binding on, I will post a picture.

Everyone have a great holiday.
