WOW – March 2, 2016

We have had lots of rain the last few days and the wind was so strong that we had to take our flags of the flag pole.  Today seems to be nicer just a little sprinkle.  I have been so mentally overloaded lately with helping my daughter with buying her condo and getting ready to do a small remodel of her kitchen in her new place. Thing will be crazy for the next three weeks so I’m trying to get as much sewing done whenever I can. 

This quilt has been done for the last three weeks but I just hadn’t had time to take photos.  I will be putting this quilt in our QA quilt show this month.  I made this for my son’s girlfriend for a graduation gift I know she will like it she is very girly.  I had fun making this and I love Dresden’s now but I have to say doing the split petals makes for a lot of bulk I have lots of scraps for this because I didn’t read the instruction correctly and made twice as many petals as I needed so I will more than likely make another one to use up the scraps but not now. 


I finished Anna’s pillows for the nursery she loved them that made me happy.  Now I have to make the bumper pads and then most of the nursery will be done. My goal is to get it finished by the end of this week that way I can concentrate on my daughters move.

So about a month ago I brought home a fat quarter of this cat fabric thinking I would put it in my POD (Harry Potter) quilt well my daughter saw it and went crazy and wanted pillow cases made out of it and then my sons girlfriend was “I want them toooooo” so I went back to the store and bought fabric for the pillow cases I used the green colorway for my daughter it will go nicely with all the colors he has picked for her new place.  I stuck with the pink or Olivia.  They turned out really nice they are already on their beds.

Lastly I started a quilt a year ago called Annabelle’s Adventure by Michele Marll.  I completed all the blocks by June and then I got a wild hair (bunny joke) and decided to design my own border using elements form the different blocks.  So I drew it all out and then got distracted with other project and deadlines.  We I’m back to working on it and it’s coming out very nice.  This is the middle of the four sides of the border this is inspired by Annabelle’s flower or her head.  There will be some kites and maybe even pumpkins and apples. I’m just really glad to back to this quilt it going to be amazing when I’m done.

Forgot the last POD block I completed.

Have a wonderful week.
