Texas Braid class with Bonnie Hunter!!

It was a wonderful day with sewing and sharing with fellow quilters in WSQ Spokane! Bonnie is a delight and I am so glad to have had this experience!! Here's a few photos!

 Bonnie and me with my first 2 braids and the quilt I hope they become some day!

 Bonnie instructing us on the finer points of braid making!
 Show and share time!! Here's a couple of my favorites....The log cabin quilt has one inch logs!! Just gorgeous!!

And this little quilt has 1/4 finished hexis! This sweet quilt has tiny lady bug buttons on some of the leaves and very tiny buttons for berries...Adorable!!!!

What a great day!

Hi Quilters! I wanted to share a link to an etsy shop that has some really great cards or prints for sale.
It's called torn paper quilt cards. I really love the various quilt photos on these cards! And they also can be purchased as a print with a mat! Here's a few lovely examples:
 The quotes at the bottom can be customized however you want. I am getting the above print with a mat and will frame it to hang in my sewing room along with another one. I'm putting "Keep calm and quilt on" on one of them.
 This is what the print and mat ones look like. Aren't they lovely?
Great colors and color combos too!

Fun!!!
God Bless

DWM and Quiltville link-up

Time for more link-ups!
Hope everyone had a great Christmas!
I'm ringing in the New Year at the hospital...yes, I'm working! It's all good, I'd rather have all of Christmas off than New Year's eve. Any way, here's some photos:

 Thanks to Bonnie Hunter, we had the EASIEST CLUE EVER for Grand Illusion!!!!! This weeks clue was 4-patches, 4 of one and 25 of the other. Didn't take long, and I'm looking forward to finding out how these beauties are going to go together!

 Here are 4 of my coffee quilt blocks before the machine applique is done and the attic window sashing is put on. The applique fabrics are out of my scrap box. Kinda fun and wonky, I think!


Here's the quilt in progress on the design wall. Some of it is behind the ironing board. I settled on a brown TOT for the sashing. The green print will end up being the border...too busy for sashing!

Head on over to Quiltville and Patchwork Times for more link-ups!

Have a blessed New Year!

Grand Illusion progress and DWM!!

Here is my Clue 4 all done!
And here's the rest...1-3. Love the colors in this quilt!

This is what I just put on the wall today-Coffee Quilt! I plan on doing an Attic Windows setting and the alternate blocks will be appliqued with coffee cups and saucers, taking inspiration from the black coffee cup fabric. FUN!!



And here is Sadie up on top of my fabric bins with her current fav piece of flannel to sit on. She's a great little supervisor and quality control expert!

Linking this post up with Bonnie Hunter's blog and Judy at Patchwork Times as well!

Have a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!
God Bless-

Almost the New Year!

Wow! How time flies! I caan't believe it's almost the new year!

I'm still plugging away at finishing things and starting new ones. It is the time of year for the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, so that is coming along nicely. I finished step 4 last night. I'll get some photos later.
We are going to my brother's house today for a pre-Christmas family celebration and dinner. Bill and Ginny are going to her family's on Christmas.
I'm hoping to keep up with the RSC (rainbow Scrap Challenge) this coming year, so shoiuld be fun!
I will add a badge when I remember how! LOL!
