Starry Starry Night

I believe this is a shadow box quilt, it is to be a gift for a young grandson.  It was just a charm to quilt.
Yes, I do believe I have taken the photo sideways, but I didn't want it dragging on the deck, and then I forgot to rotate the picture.  Hopefully you'll get the picture.(grin)
 What 10 year old won't love this one?
A simple meander with a star.

Applique - Marie Antoinette

Oh boy, these are my least favourite quilts to quilt....but I do think applique is a wonderful thing.  I do find all that open space intimidating. How to do the applique justice, as well as fill those big spaces...  this quilt has a lot of empty space/canvas.

Well it had a lot of canvas, it is finished.
Happy Tuesday,

I call it yummy......William Morris Prints

I had the pleasure of quilting an original design using William Morris prints. This was very enjoyable to quilt.... though doing a pantograph,  keeps me at the back of the machine.  Long armers know this means one doesn't have as intimate a relationship with the fabrics :(   When I work from the front I can really look at the fabric (So know you know my secret !)    Who likes  Wm. Morris!

I am also looking forward to quilting a little Kaffee Fassett does W. Morris number hanging on my to do wall. It too is a yummy piece.
Happy Monday and Happy Quilting,

Done is done....finished

The Cowichan sweater is finished. I added an inside pocket to it,  then I stuffed it into a  box and mailed  Whew! It should make it to Calgary before the 20th....unless it ends up going by stage coach across the prairies, eh!

While your here,  take a look at the front door decor.......

Golden Light

We took a little road trip up the shore to Wiarton. (Where there happens to be lovely little quilt shop.)

 It is that time of year when we get hints of winter, so on a warm and sunny day,  one just has to get outside.

This is looking across the bay at the last of the golden light of fall.

We took a picnic, Parks Canada has already put away the tables.  A lack of tables did not stop us  from doing some excellent munching.  There was something for everyone.  

Those wondering how big the puppy is......He's a year old now.

I hope you all take every opportunity to enjoy the out before the on coming season of cold keeps you in....

Snuggle Quilts

This quilt is a Christmas gift. Can you just imagine yourself wrapped up in this watching a 'game' and munching some pizza! Delightful, delicious and it was fun to stitch.

Happy Tuesday,
