I'm back!

Hello Everyone!

I didn't mean to be gone so long. But as this is a quilting blog and not much quilting has been going on...well, there wasn't much to say. I've been down in the pits of  no-quilting-motivation, but now, I think, I am back out.

I have done a few little things. Made both my oldest son and daughter wallets. Made my dd a small, across the chest purse. She doesn't wear make up or jewelry and doesn't really need a big purse, so this one does the trick nicely.

I've been buying some fabric here and there, hoping to find that quilting mojo. This is a FQ bundle of Boundless solids, by Craftsy.com.


Here's a lovely bundle of Robert Kaufman's Fusion Blooms, a 10" stacker.


The gray on the left of the next picture, I bought at a quilt show. The other three lovelies were a birthday gift from my friend Carol


These lovelies were a birthday gift from my big Sis, who is also a quilter :) These photos are not the best for sure. These are so rich and vibrant in real life.


And here's some I bought when Quilt Fabric Closeout was having a sale. The butterflies and roses are 1/2 yrd pieces for the stash, the butterflies on the right I am going to use in a backing for one of my quilt tops. Theres a few yrds there, so good for a pieced back.




And now that I have some pretty new fabric, I think I'm going to join Lorna in her Bear paw quilt along. I just love Lorna's animal quilts, they are so cute! And I've always had a thing for bears, so this just sang out to me.

                               

I'm making  a crib sized, but going to add a border of the paw prints, cause they are too cute to leave out. I'll be using some of the Fabric fusions for the bear paw blocks and the bear, but haven't decided yet on the background and sashing.

So, here's hoping I can get some quilting going on and keep my mojo up :) Would love to hear from you all, what have you been up to?

  2. Hopefully your quilting mojo kicks back in soon. Mine disappears on occasion as well.
    Isn't that Fusion fabric fabulous? :)

  3. Happy to see you're back! You certainly have some wonderful fabric...nothing like new fabric to jump start your quilting mojo. I love that pattern! I have a bear paw on my list too, but that bear and the tracks on the border really make this one special. Looking forward to seeing your progress!
