Out of the Box & One More Finish!



My Snowball quilt is all quilted and bound.  I quilted it with a feather pantograph. 


Now  I need to just stop joining all these challenges
and sew alongs because I have so many UFO's I need to get to work on.



Speaking of UFO's  I bought another kit which will probably become a UFO. 
I have really been trying to get a little more color in my quilts and this should just about to do it.
I stopped at Intown Quilters Saturday and this quilt almost blinded me when I walked in the door.
The pattern is "A Piece of Cake" and is really simple looking but the fabric is outrageous.  I love it!




I also signed up for a BOM they are starting in February. 
It's all batiks.  Looks like a lot of fun and I love applique'.

Florabunda Block Six -- Lucky Me!


I can't believe I am already finished with six blocks of this quilt.  Erin from One Piece At A Time makes them so easy with her great instructions.  I am really enjoying this quilt and I especially like this block.


Today was my lucky day.  I won the charm squares from Kris at  The Quilting Garden. Thanks Kris. 
Now to come up with a plan to use them..

Busy Week

I got a couple of the quilts on my "Quilts Waiting to be Quilted" list finished.

Classic Blue & White was one of Little Quilts 2005 Second Saturday Sampler quilts.

The second quilt is from the book Jelly Roll Quilts and is called Pandora's Box.
I won a Mother Goose jelly roll from All Washed up in June 2009 and this is the quilt I made.

I quilted Classic Blue and White  with an all over design and used wool batting.

Pandora's Box also has wool batting and is quilted in a feather design.

I have also been working on my scrappy nine patch and snowball quilt. 
I sewed all the blocks together and now I just need to decide what kind of border
I want or even if I want a border. 
What do you think?

Chloe

We have company coming Saturday! 
Chloe my almost 5 year old Granddaughter will be here for a visit.
Her 5th birthday is on July 16th and she will actually sit still long enough now  for me to snap a picture.

No Strings Attached Challenge


Wow!  Lucky me.  A while back I entered Loft Creations
 No Strings Attached Challenge - hosted by Stephanie and guess what I won a prize.
Carrie P.  of  - A Passion for Applique -  donated the prize I won.  A wonderful box of strips.


My scrap quilts should be greatly improved by the addition of all this colorful fabric.
