2 back from the quilter


I started this quilt some time ago (I just noticed it was in 2010…oh my!) as part of Erin’s Florabunda quilt-along.  I got 7 of the 12 blocks done before setting them aside for a break.  Last summer I decided I probably wouldn’t finish the rest, so instead, made plans to use these 7 in a quilt all by themselves.

And I’m really happy with it. 

Thank you Erin for the pretty applique designs.




I admire my quilter, JoLynn.  She always does very nice work.


She quilted this one too.


I love the sweet little extras she added…children and letters all around the border.

Makes it really special…


And I was excited when I found this fabric for the back… perfect!

I’ll be spending the next few evenings binding them…

Then back to work on Christmas stuff!

Such a fun time of year!

Look at what can be done with just two charm packs! 

especially with my pretty Cinnamon Spice charm packs…

…and a little bit of cream colored fabric.

I have the perfect spot for this runner on a cupboard I inherited from my grandmother.  A very special place.



I got the idea from Lori Smith’s book…


on page 42… 

making a few changes to fit my needs. 

This has been one of my very favorite books!



More snow here….but this time it seems so light and pretty. This is the view out of my sewing room window, right above my sewing machine and looking right into the top of our cherry tree. I love this view…just a couple of weeks ago it was glowing golden with all the fall leaves. So beautiful!
