Who woulda thought...

... that the end of a year could be so busy and the beginning of a New Year even busier??   I didn't realize that I was so busy until I came to post a new blog-post.  It's been a while!

I've been busy with the Kaffe Fassett snowball quilt and that one is almost finished.  Look at all those snowballs!  I'm wishing we had some REAL snowballs around here! 

I picked up some very interesting fabric for a border for this and a bright choice for a back.  I absolutely love most of the Kaffe Fassett bright colors and prints.  Can't wait for this quilt to be done!    

I finished up a baby quilt for a customer.  She handed me 7 baby blocks that had been pieced by someone in the family, and now she wants these made into a baby quilt for a mom-to-be in the family.  Pictures when I have her OK.

And then I finished up Pam's Beautiful Batik Flowers today.  I did a little bit of custom.  I love the wonkiness of the blocks and didn't want to overwhelm them with a lot of quilting ... but at the same time felt that they deserved quilting just for them.  So I put some stitches inside the flowers themselves, then did a swoop-swoop in the small border, and piano keys in the large border.  Fun but pretty simple.  I used Magna-Glide Sea Mist thread on this and it really popped. 

Happy New Year!  Stay safe, happy, and healthy!


  1. You did a great job on this quilt. Hope you have fun with the mystery quilt. I'll have to pick up the McCalls magazine.

  2. Thanks, Tina! The Mystery Quilt shouldn't be too hard ... it's only 3 installments. But as always i think it's the fabric you chose that really makes the quilt. I've had a few "misses" along the way in the Mystery Quilt department. But we live and learn, no? Later, gator!
