Float from MMM Quilts

Those of you who have hung around here for any length of time know that I love quilts with super-imposed images. I love when your eye sees a quilt one way, and then there's a 'shift' and boom! You see that same quilt in a different way, the first image receding, then there it is again, and so on. It's like Rubin's Vase.  'Float', which is what I've named my Splash of Colour quilt, has a similar illusion effect.


The sun peeked out for a couple of minutes on the photo shoot day, but as luck ...

Q1 FAL My List from MMM Quilts

For the first quarter of 2018, here are the projects I hope to finish:


1. Migrating Geese

2. Dutch Garden quilt for my aunt. It's the blue and yellow one.
I've moved it along a bit since my 2017 Q4 List...
I bought the Dutch Garden kit off Craftsy that you can find here, (affiliate link) but I'm doing a pattern out of one of Pam & Nicky Lintott's Charm Squares and Jelly Roll books because it results in a larger quilt. :-) Remember you do not have to use the kit contents to make the kit!

Rainbow Vibes Finish from MMM Quilts

This little quilt has been all done for a couple of weeks, and actually has gone to a few yoga classes with me. I just haven't sat down to write up the finish post.  It was one of my Q4 goals for the 2017 Finish Along. My list is here.



This is my own design, Ribbon Stars, no revolutionary block, but a bit of a fun setting. This is the fourth time I've made my pattern, each version a bit different. You can get it for free in my Craftsy store. (affiliate link) I hope you're remembering ...

Love quilt from Espritpatch

I have been trying to do a lot of clearing out and decluterring in the last few months, including in my sewing/craft supplies. And while going through bags, boxes etc, I have of course unearthed some long lost treasures, abandoned projects and all sorts.

I stumbled across a pile of Disappearing 4-patch red and white blocks that I had won during the Block Lotto in March 2011 (!) and that had been waiting to be put together... one day. Well the days to do so finally arrived recently and I started to piece the blocks together into a quilt top ...

Forever Flowers from MMM Quilts

As we know, flowers do not last forever. However, one can replenish one's supply, one's vases, one's garden, with flowers.  Forever.  Right?  Flowers in fabric, now, do not need replenishing; they definitely are forever.  Well for a few hundred years, I hope.
This is 'Forever Flowers', a quilt I made for my mum for her 80th birthday, which was, ahem, almost one year ago. Her birthday, not the quilt finish.

It is one of my goals on my Q4 List which you fill find on that link.


These are glorious Kaffe Fassett fabrics, fabrics I would never ...

2017 Finish-A-Long ~ Meet the Global Host Team ~ Felicity from Charm About You


Helloooo!

I'm Felicity


and this is my family - Husband of 17 years K and our nearly-10-year-old daughter G:

being silly, something we do very well

I am lucky enough to live in Naramata, British Columbia. It's a village of fewer than 2,000 people nestled on the Naramata Bench in one of Canada's fruit- and wine-producing regions, the Okanagan Valley.



As you can see, we're on the side of a lake, and it's a big tourist destination because our summer weather is hot and dry.


We moved to Naramata from Vancouver just over a year ...

Q4 Finish Along My List from MMM Quilts

Somehow I missed joining up for both Q2 and 3, well I know how, major life changes. Moving was the reason for Q2, as our possession was April 1 and we came back home from Florida a week ahead of that, so lots of instability then. Doesn't seem 6 months ago. The reason for Q3 was another major life change, the sudden death of our son-in-law, Brady's dad. Still have a hard time writing that. So here's my little list for Q4.


1. This Craftsy kit I bought last year:

Still not all cut but I did ...

Finish Along 2016 {Q 1} from Jenniffier's Sometimes Creative Life

For the last couple years I really haven't made much progress on completing any quilting projects. I have really wanted to make some progress on my long standing WIPs. And for once I think I am going to be able to get my post up on time for this years Finish Along. 

1. Aqua and Teal Bento Box Quilt  - This one is a is from a flickr bee that I was in a way to many years ago. 

First time using my new design wall and I already see one block that needs to be moved... For some reason pictures always help me with that.

2. Periwinkle Mini Quilt - made from left overs from an other mini quilt. 

Was able to get the tiniest bit of mini quilt sewing in today... Using up leftover can be quite fun! #miniquilt

3. Patchwork Prism Quilt - Again a long standing ...

2016 Finish Along {Q1 Goals} from Never Just Jennifer

Looking back on my 2015 finish along goals, I didn't do so hot.  Sure I got a lot finished in Q1 but not much of what was on my list.  In Q2 I did much better at following and finishing what was on my list.  I didn't even manage a list for Q3 or Q4.  Check out all of my posts related to last years finish along here.

I'm aiming to be much better this year though.  I have some big plans for that long WIP list from last year.  So let's get down to it ...
