CHECKING THINGS OFF MY LIST!!


You will just have to forgive my pictures today, it has been raining like cats and dogs and now it is stinking cold outside.  I have been freezing for two days, under the covers reading books...yes, that is a whine and I would like some cheese with it.


This first quilt I have showed you before, it was waiting to be quilted.  I quilted it on my Pfaff since I can not get to my longarm, that is not a whine. 

The fabrics are Paisely Dots by Island Batik.  The cancer ribbon design is by craftistitch.  I used my white aurifil thread to sew everything together with.  I have a huge cone that I am trying desperately to use up....I say desperately because that is all I have been using lately.

This next one is just the top, needs to be quilted.  If you saw the previous post, you will know that this is scraps from a project I am doing with my sister.  Love the oriental fabrics which you can get at Inchworm Fabrics.

I used the Accuquilt Go Orange Slice die and pink Aurifil thread.


Here is just a sneak peak of my April Quilt for the April Island Batik Challenge.  Don't you just love the turquoise aurifil thread?  Ummmm Ummmmm good.

So, I have two of my eight projects done.  I feel good about that but I added one more to the list...ha ha!!

Dang, I just finished sewing something that your turquoise Aurifil thread would have been perfect for (I used light grey). Your sneak peek has me on my toes eagerly awaiting to see more.

I am curious about the orange peel quilt. Did you piece those together or just split and fuse them?
We had a few warm sunny days here but we are back to cold again. I am ready for spring to really be here.

They are both quite lovely! I love all the fabrics you chose, especially on your scrappy quilt. Can’t wait to see your April quilt!
