The Eyes Have It

 I have been working on the Penguin Party quilt for my daughter. I have some of the Penguins completed and am working on getting the eyes completed for the rest. I started this quilt late last fall at a quilting retreat. I am hoping to get it done for the summer.

Friday Night Sew-In Botanica Park


My Friday Night Sew-In was spent working on my flying geese for my chevron border of the Botanica Park quilt. This is the last section I need to do and then I can sew the sections together. This quilt will be my main focus for the next couple of weeks. I am happy that I am now seeing the end.

I Wish I May


The quilt I have started years ago for my son is now done. I started it at a quilting retreat, put it away and took it out every so often. I finally got to the flying geese border last Fall and took it to the same quilting retreat I go to every year to finish the flying geese. It was completed last week and will now be going with him to college. The pattern is I Wish I May by Border Creek Station. I did have it sent out to be quilted. I tried a fairly new technique for me of using a meandering stitch on my machine to sew done the binding. I really like the effect because it fits in with the quilting.  My son is very happy with the quilt.

Friday Night Sew In -Placemats


My Friday Night Sew In was spent starting on some placemats for my Mom for her upcoming birthday. It came as a kit with a diagram on how to cut the shapes and sew back together. I got one of the tops done. I am going to make them first and then trim them to the same size.

Easter Weekend-Friday Night Sew In

 I used my Easter weekend -Friday Night Sew In to work on my Simple Whatnots Club -Season 11 from Kim Diehl. This is my first time signing up for the club. Last year I got an individual kit from a previous season and really enjoyed it so I was happy when my LQS was hosting the one this year. I love all the fabrics and I am excited to have small kits to work on and hang up in my quilting room. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

A Star Is Born


For Friday Night Sew In I worked on a baby quilt I am making for a friend’s granddaughter.  I had a bit more cutting than I had thought so I had to finish that before sewing again. The pattern by Canuck Quilter  is one big block which is something I have been wanting to try. Baby quilts are always my favourite to make. There are so many great patterns for them.

Friday Night Sew-In Alaska Rainbow

 I spent my Friday Night Sew-In working on my Alaska rainbow quilt. I bought the fabric kit last year but only had gotten one set of blocks done. I am hoping that my new Singer Featherweight will encourage me to continue working on it. I purchased the fabric kit rather than the pre-cut and after cutting out all the shapes for the block this week, I wished I had bought the pre-cut kit. This will be a quilt for me so there is no rush to get it done.
