One of my fav things...

One of my favourite things is when I have a photo of the quilt with its recipient, in situ.

This is Viola with her Basket Quilt. Look at her rosy cheeks! The colours in her room complement the quilt beautifully.....

I am so happy to see the quilt used and loved....... *warm fuzzies*


What a stunning model! xo Viola...

Posy

Perhaps Posy would be a good name for the little pony....

Should I name the bird too? And so this block is finished before the one with the tree has its berries...

I'm loving this soooo much....

My Little Pony

Oh this block makes me giggle so far!!

I never had a My Little Pony toy, but I remember buying the show bag. I loved the pink sparkly pencil case and accessories. I kept them in my grade 6 desk with my favourite pens and pencils inside.

My Little Pony always had a particular pattern on her bottom. For instance the Lucky My Little Pony would have a 4 leaved clover on her bottom...

What would be a good name for this one? Blossom?

The pretty rainbow in the sky is going to be a flower... I'm just going to let a name come to me...

Tree... Life....

This block is not quite finished..... It needs some berries and bird feet.

I'm mostly using Kaffe fabrics, mixed with Reece Scannell shot cottons and the tree is just from a fat quarter I've had for donkeys years.

The berries will be from dyed wool felt.

I'm loving this already. How perfect to start with birds in a tree, one of my favourite themes...

No wonder I've nearly finished it so quickly.

This quilt is definitely going to be a keeper...

Nothing and Something

There's Nothing like a new project... and that's really Something...

Instead of the traditional look, I'm going for bold and brights... transformation in progress.

Does your quilting go in cycles? I'm moving out of the reproduction range into the jewel tones. Oh, I'm loving the jewels at the moment... I'm wearing them, decorating with them, and I need to sew them....

Hot Dog

Jessie the dog! You've seen her before, and here is the starlet once again..... Oh yes, she loves her doggy coat!! Not that she needs it in front of the fire!

I felt a lot of love for the dear little doggy while making her this blanky. xo
