Next Sunday we “spring forward” and change the clocks, so surely spring is on the way, right?

Well, I just finished this quilt kit I bought from Keepsake Quilting over a year ago!

2015-03-03 17.03.44

The pattern is called Snow Days by Hen Scratch Quilting.  I am soooo pleased with how it came out!

2015-03-03 17.04.08

The fabrics are so perfect for the design!

I really enjoyed making the little houses!!  All those fabrics have  little white dots that perfectly depict falling snow!!

And the tree fabric with the little birds is just so perfect to go between the houses.

The quilting was fun, too.

I wanted it to look like a wind blowing the snow around!!

I had bought a flannel to put on the back, but it was too bright…sigh

Then I found this Alexander Henry snowman fabric in my stash!!  Woo hoo!  A match!!

It looks great on my blue chair in the library!!

February Mini Finished!!

This month’s “Schnibble” Group project was an adorable mini Union Jack quilt by Fig Tree Co!!

2015-02-23 14.24.45-1

I really love this design!  I had some Somerset fat quarters…

2015-02-23 11.04.38

and a few others from my stash that I combined for this quilt!

2015-02-23 14.25.22

It was a slightly tedious block to put together.

2015-02-21 15.05.02

Mine certainly are not perfect in any way at all…

2015-02-19 18.33.48

but I do love them all put together!!

2015-02-23 14.26.02

I think the colors are going to look perfect with my summer decor later this year!!

Keeping Busy!

We are expecting 6-8” of snow tonight, so tomorrow we’ll be socked in- perfect for sewing!

I fell in love with this leaf quilt from Fig Tree Quilts, and I loved it in her Somerset collection.

It’s a jelly roll quilt, which I LOVE, as cutting is my least favorite part of quilting!
IMG_4185
It was a fun block to put together!  Super easy, too!
2015-02-12 10.24.16-1
The brown stems were put on with fusible then I blanket stitched around the edges.
2015-02-10 10.42.01
I did make the quilt one row shorter than the pattern, and it still was a really large lap quilt!
2015-02-11 16.29.26
I used three of the extra leaf block to make a small table runner for my foyer table.
2015-02-11 11.42.34
I used the last leftover block to make a pillow cover for the library. 
2015-02-11 12.18.17
I also had many jelly roll strips leftover, so I cut them into squares and made a square table mat!

Really love these fabrics!!  The design is somewhat fallish,
2015-02-12 10.22.39
but I think it will be perfect to put out in September!!
2015-02-12 10.25.54-1
Tomorrow I’ll be sewing on some birthday gifts for bee friends!!  Can’t show you those, though!!  They read my blog, too!!
2015-02-10 14.04.21
So, Yogi is wondering what you are up to this week?
