Day #7 Spring Blog Hop – It’s My Day

For those of you that are new to my blog – welcome and enjoy!
I’ve created a cute and simple small quilt for you so grab your scraps of fabric and lets get to work! This is called “Mountain Two Step”. This little quilt needs only basic knowledge of sewing to create, so if this will be your first venture into making a quilt – no fear, you can do this! (pdf file for pattern located at the bottom of this blog post – just click on the star block!)
You know – small quilts can be used for more than decor on the wall!  Use them as table decorations, fold them and display them in baskets – or for a larger style basket, roll them up!  Or another idea for this pattern – create several blocks using my instructions and sew them all together to create a larger quilt!
And our recipe for you is something that we came up with.  I’ve tested the recipe and my family loved it!

A Few Little Finishes!!!

Last night I was in one of my “moods”.  I had to get something accomplished.  I had to sit down at the sewing machine.  I had to get – something – anything finished!
Well, I’m happy to say, I’ve finished 3 little quilts that have been “almost” finished for a year now.  The poor little dears have been hanging on one of my design walls screaming for attention now.  They seemed to reach out and smack me in the face every time I walked into my sewing room, yet I never could seem to carve out enough time to pay attention to them.  Well, last night I just could not take it anymore!  I was able to get all 3 of these quilts bound and finished!  That’s all – that’s all they needed, yet they hung on the wall for a year or more actually – that’s sad – that’s really, really sad.  Here they are!
First up is this little darling.  The quilt top was gifted to my by Miss Kathie of the Inspired by Antique Quilts blog.  I hand quilted this one last year while vending at a show in Valparaiso Indiana.  Isn’t it a cutie!
This is Cheddar Cheese and Crackers – a quilt I made last year during a “Quilt Along” with Lori of Humble Quilts who so generously gave the instructions step by step on her blog. Love the cheddar!
And this one was actually the first version of this quilt:
Which was one of our pattern releases last year.  I made the first version and then went back and did it again, made it smaller and added fun corner borders for the pattern version which you see above that is called Star City!
I’m off to play for a little while today.  I’m pulling fabrics to work on a quilt model for our quilt show booths this year. I’m working on one of the quilts from the Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle Club!  More specifically the quilt in the lower right hand corner on the cover below!

But first, I’m going to put these 3 little finishes of mine in the washer and get them going.  I love that slightly puckered antique look on my quilts! Then they’ll be ready to find a spot on one of our walls here at home!  It feels good to have finished something!
