Escher and Kaffe

 I can't get enough of these Escher patterns made with Kaffe fabrics.
Kits can be found at Quilt-agious quilt shop,
but I'm not sure that they sell just the patterns.
Usually I order a kit and switch out some of the fabrics,
but this time I loved them all.

One needs to be very organized to make these patterns.
A lot of baggies, pins and clips were used in the construction.
Once the backing fabric arrives,
it will be ready to send off to Rebecca Grace
for her to work her magic on quilting it.

Escher and Kaffe..... it doesn't get any better!!

Happy Quilting!

The Wedding Quilt

 This past weekend I FINALLY ironed and prepared the backing
for the wedding quilt for my niece.
She is getting married in the beginning of June and
time is running out!
This is a queen size quilt made a little larger
so it has a nice overhang.
(We are having some work done in our house
and there is dust everywhere.
Therefore, I didn't want to put it on the floor!)

This is my own design, done on EQ8.
It's the first time I've really worked with EQ8 and
I really enjoyed the process.

This quilt is going to the quilter tomorrow,
giving me time to get it bound and ready to
deliver in June.

Happy Quilting!

This, That and Tula

 For the past week or so time spent in my Hidey Hole
has been hit and miss.
I had a couple of small things to make,
so was able to get those done.

The first of these were a couple of clothing items
for my littles.

My daughter asked me to make little Miss O
a strawberry dress.
Twist my arm!!

Once the dress was made,
my son in law asked if I could make Mister M
a matching shirt.
I didn't have a pattern for a boys shirt
and OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!!
It has been a long while since I have bought a pattern
and the cost is ridiculous!! 
I could have bought 2 shirts for the price of the pattern.

I did find a reasonably priced pattern and got his shirt made.

Next on the agenda was to make the April blocks
for my Gridster Bee Mate.
She asked for wonky stars with a black background.


 I'm telling you... wonky is not my thing,
but I forged ahead and am happy with the results.
They will go in the mail soon.
Next up was to get the Tula HST quilt finished.



This is the first time I've used Tula's fabrics
and may be my last.

While I'm pleased with the results of the quilt,
I had to work hard to get it to come together. 

This will be donated and will brighten someone's day.
Happy Quilting!

Carrot Patch

 The other day I needed something quick and easy to make
and had seen some of these carrots on social media.
There is a free pattern for these at
Shabby Fabrics with a tutorial, as well.

Out came some orange and green fabrics
and my carrot patch was made!!

These just make me smile.

The stems have pipe cleaners in them to give them some form
and body. 

Bring on the bunnies!!

Happy Creating!
