Tea Kettle Quilt


have the tea kettles done now for the quilt. It was a lot of fun to choose what fabrics to go together. My husband and daughter helped me with some of the decisions. I am now on to the flying geese. I always have a love/hate relationship with them but I seem to tend towards quilts that have them.  A quarter of them have been done so far.

Tea Kettle Quilt


I’m making the Tea Kettle quilt by Lori Holt in honour of my mother-in-law who passed away in the Spring. She was the one who taught me to enjoy tea and we shared many a teapot together. I got the kit and my daughter and I went through and chose the pots and handles together. There is 15 to make and I have finished the first one. It went together well and I am looking forward to seeing the variety of pots.

I completed it for my Friday Night Sew In

Penguin Party

 I completed Penguin Party last month for my daughter. She and I are both thrilled with it. She wanted to have the plaid colours alternating and I really like it that way. I started it on a quilt retreat last October on my featherweight. Pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman and quilting was done by Quilt’n Things for you. I bought the pattern and backing at a quilt store after attending my husband’s uncle’s wedding. She has been using it, which is always a great gift for a quilter.

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.
