PCC Finished!!

Hello Everyone!

It's almost deadline time in our Paint Chip Challenge on the Q&N forum. Once Cindy has all the pictures of the participate's projects, she'll compile them and make a poll so you can vote for your FAVORITE one. The criteria is that the project has to use the paint chips 3 colors as it's focus fabric. The voting will go on till July  5th. You will also be able to vote on our Facebook site.

Sooooo.... here is my project! Along with my paint chip. These colors are VERY outside my box.

 I love the bits of pink and red.

I love this border :)

I did a more dense quilting than I usually do.

And I have been practicing my FMQing.

Come on over and enjoy the eye candy. I'll let you know when you the poll is up to vote.

* Linking up with Alyce from Blossom Heart quilts today. Thank you Alyce!

* This is also my June finish for ALYOF, woohooo! Thanks Shanna and Melissa!

Quilting practice

Hello Everyone,

Do you have good weekend plans? We are going to enjoy another day or two of sunshine, then get some much needed rain. Rainy days are good days for practicing the quilting...if baby allows that is ;)

I've been getting my Paint Chip Challenge project finished up. It just needs the binding. I have 7 more days, so I best get it done!

I love my walking foot! This is the most dense quilting I've done.

I've also been working on my FMQing.

I wish the back looked as good.... I know, practice, practice! LOL.

I did discover that my machine much prefers me quilting with the feed dogs up. So that helped, once I figured it out.

This is something I want to start practicing a lot, as I really like it!!

Have a great day all!

WIP Wednesday

Hello Everyone,

I hope your days are bright and sunny. It's been beautiful weather here. Warm with a cool breeze for the most part. Perfect!

My young man's quilt is coming along nicely.

These hexagons and triangles are HUGE. The quilt is going to finish at around 67"x84" or something like that. He's a big boy ;)

I just have to sew my rows together, then the top will be done.

Son is very happy with it, he says he loves the geometric designs :)

I used Julie's hex n more ruler, what a great tool!

Linking up with Lee. Thanks Lee!

Kate Spain blog hop

Howdy Folks,

Have you been following the Kate Spain blog hop put on by Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts? Lots of lovely projects out there using Kate Spain fabrics. And lots of great prizes too.

Today, Alyce is having  a linky party for showing off what you have made with any KS fabrics.

For me, I love her Terrain line. The white print on my diaper bag is my very favorite.

I also made a baby carrier from this print.

Central Park is also a favorite of mine. I had a mini charm pack at one point and made this quilt with it, a mini of Lovely and some stash fabric.

Thanks for the great blog hop Alyce!

Some progress

Hello Folks, how is everyone today?

We went thru a very hot weekend, and now are in the cool 70s...awww, feels good.

I've made a bit of progress on my oldest sons quilt. I will have five of these hexagons in a row. (Then maybe they won't look like eyes ;) LOL

And I will have some of these triangles too. They will have the green all around them, and some blue.

Don't you love it when the pattern you see in your head starts to emerge in your fabric :)

Linking up with the Quilt Story Gals today, thanks Gals!

Linking up with Lee today, thanks Lee!

Have a great day all.

ALYoF June goal setting

Good morning Folks,

June already!! I'm so amazed at how quickly time is flying.

Well I didn't finish my May goal of quilting my Paint Chip Challenge project. It's about half way done, maybe a bit more.

So, my goal for June is to finish it up. As the challenge project is due June 28th.

A Lovely Year of Finishes
