Feather Me a Rainbow Baby Quilt from Creatin' in the Sticks

My newest quilt pattern is over on the 
blog today.

I'm celebrating my favorite color - RAINBOW!

Feather Me a Rainbow Baby Quilt

I was inspired by rainbows and Dresden quilt blocks.

My thought was that feather shapes would make a Dresden looking block
in rainbow colors
how could it be wrong?

The quilt pattern features
to print the patterns right on the fusible adhesive to create all of the quilt blocks. 
 Just print, fuse, cut, bond, and stitch.  It's that easy.

The colors of HashDOT by Michael Miller Fabrics are amazing for ...

Glad Surprise That is Spring from Canadian Needle Nana

Heavy rain and the odd thunderclap were keeping us inside for the most part. It came with wind too lashing about the trees.
 We went out for our walks but I worried Hubby would get cold from the dampness.  I grew up with those notions; did you?
Bit brighter today and there is no doubt "spring is breaking in glad surprise" all around us.

For instance, the phoebe has returned to the rafters of the tiny garage by the pond. Last year two nests were inside and the birds didn't seem to mind the closeness. Having a pond on ...

Coming Home and FLW from The Cozy Quilter

I have finally finished the second part of my Coming Home BOM quilt.  Everything is fitting together well so far with minimal un-sewing.  The four corners are up next and I have the pieces cut out and ready to applique. 

The applique tulips will be turquoise and magenta (two of each).  I have started to applique one block and hope to get them all done before the third set of instructions come out at the end of April.

If you read my previous post, you will know that I am making a string quilt with material from my Dad's ...

A Garden Trip! from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

Here is my latest quilt.  So very pleased to have another quilt done and off my list.  Now, it is time to really enjoy this quilt.

This photo was taken on Sunday and then we had another dump of snow.  Still a lot of snow on the hill but daily we can see a difference and photos help to remind us that the snow is really, really going away.

As I was taking a photo, there was a movement out of the corner of my eye.  What?  I kept snapping photos.  Did I capture anything? 
This red squirrel came in ...

Hearted Beauties Release from Stitchin at Home

I have always wanted to make a New York Beauty Quilt. Whenever I spy one whether it's at a quilt show or on the net, they catch my eye.

'Hearted Beauties' is what happened after I played with designing my own New York Beauty blocks in a heart shape. Why a heart shape? Because I thought it might be neat to see what they looked like. Of course those hearts needed a setting and a quilt pattern was born.

Hearted Beauties

The Heart blocks are paper pieced, the rest of the quilt uses traditional piecing.

The quilt back shows ...

Avocado, Birds, Free Patterns from Canadian Needle Nana

Lately this has been my favourite lunch which I make sure I eat by 1 pm.  Two slices of dark rye bread, a little olive oil, an avocado and a sprinkling of pink salt. I find avocado, like bananas, filling.

 I have to work on not gobbling it down and am practising mindful chewing.  Yes, that's a thing and pretty tiresome too but necessary for me as I have a tendency to inhale my food.  Even with this, I tend to forget sometimes and then I'm a big old turkey, gobble, gobble.
As a Newfoundlander, we are known ...

Coming Home--Applique from The Cozy Quilter

Finn joined me on the couch this week for some applique for part two of Coming Home, this year's Sarah Fielke BOM project. The instructions for part two came out at the end of February, so I am a little bit behind, but I'm sure I will catch up at some point.  I am just enjoying the process of picking out fabrics and working away at the various parts of this quilt.

I finished sewing the starts to the magenta squares and cut them out into circles for the next stage of the applique.  Finn provided moral support ...

Baltimore Appliqué Showstoppers from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Last month, when Kara was here to teach at the Academy of Appliqué, we spent a day at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, Virginia. That has been our routine for the past few years, but we were especially eager to go this year to see the special exhibit by the Baltimore Appliqué Society (BAS). And not just because our Fairy Tale Album was part of the exhibit; we knew what a treat it is to see the work of our fellow appliqué-ers in BAS! And we were not disappointed. Here is the exhibit for you to enjoy.

Getting somewhere! from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

Progress has been made on the borders.  Oh happy days!  I love the look of this border applique.  Only 12 more leaf units and this top will be finished ...

My husband and I have been busy again making a wood box for my niece's apartment.  She wanted a nice looking box for her garbage and recycle bins.  So, we obliged.
Her kitchen is very small and this box will help her a lot with storage.
Snow is melting very nicely up here.  Dare I even think about getting out some spring tulip quilts out for display?

Like these two ...

Appliqueing away ... from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

This is what I'm working on right now.  Boredom is starting to set in and instead of starting a new project (and thus creating a new ufo in the process - LOL), I really should work on an old ufo.  This top is almost completed.  Just finishing up the applique in the borders is all that is needed.

There are 28 of those leaf units (and a gazillion circles) to do and if 4 get done per day, this top will be finished in a week from now. 

In order that this process doesn't become monotonous and becoming abandoned ...

Hand Stitching Report from The Cozy Quilter

I have not blogged about my Frank Lloyd Wright cross stitch picture for the last couple of weeks but I have still been working on the metallic gold outlining.  The end is in sight...just a bit in the top section left to do. We took a car trip last weekend and I did quite a bit of stitching as my husband drove. 

Finn is staying with us for 5 weeks as my daughter is really busy at work right now. We are going for a couple of walks each day.  He keeps us on our toes...
