Coopers Shaggy Quilt

I stayed up late on Friday Night to get this quilt finished before we go on holidays :) i was even still snipping the edges at his birthday party. The material is winter parade and such nice "boy" colours

Baileys Quilt!!!!

Much to Baileys delight i recently finished his d9p ( disappearing nine patch). It is my first real big quilt and definitely my first binding. I'm pretty happy with it. It started out as a single bed quilt but he now has a queen size bed so its now a throw on his bed.

Twilight / New Moon

When i first heard about these books i wasn't interested at all... Vampires are definitely not my thing. But i gave in and brought "Twilight" and actually liked it. It will never be one that was on top of my list but definitely enjoyable. Now i am reading "New Moon" and i think i like it more than "Twilight" so far. They do take me back to my high school days !!!!!

Dresden Plate and Pie and Tarts quilt!!!

So i decided that i would make my Dresden plate into a cushion cover so here it is attached to the background fabric and with the papers removed.

I really love English paper piecing its so relaxing , i love it so much that i have signed up to the pies and tarts block of the month. I'm sure it will take me a long long time. The pictures show the pie and tart pieces i have already made ( not many lol) i chose "Retro" fabric and some of them are so pretty. Maybe next time i post i can them actually sewn together as pies.

Round Robin

Here are sneak peaks at the latest 2 round robin blocks... such lovely fabrics. Unfortunately the last block i had sent back got lost in the mail and i hadn't taken a photo. So this month i made sure i took pics and am now going to send anything registered
