Already February and Some Quilting


Hello sweet friends!!
February is here and Valentine's Day is right
around the corner.  Do you have your projects
ready for Valentine's Day?


This sweet heart quilt was made by my friend Carla.
Don't you just love the scrappiness of it?  The quilting
pattern I used is called Amethyst.  I love how it came
out.
If you are interested in having me quilt your quilt please
click under my header Long Arm Pricing.


Do you ever just need something simple to
do?  Well, I found these 2 vintage twin sheets
and quilted them.  I love Raggedy Ann and
Andy sew this was fun for me.  My sweet little
great nieces love them to curl under while 
watching tv when they are over.

If you are doing something you love you are
never working.

Hugs

Happy New Year and Some Finishes


Hello sweet friends, hope y'all had
a wonderful Christmas?  

Our son cooked us Christmas lunch 
this year at there house.  Since 
he and Erica have bought a new house 
they really love staying home and enjoying it. 
 I don't blame them at all I love staying home
in my house too.


I pieced this 50 Years Rudolph quilt a 
couple of years ago.  And I am just quilting it.
Hope you can see the little deer and bows I quilted 
on it.  The binding is on all I have to do is 
hand sew it on to the back.


I made this pillow a few days ago using Swell
Christmas by Moda.  The fabric's will be in my 
shop in May sometime.  I can not wait.  It
is the sweetest ever, I am just smitten for the 
Santa's.


Wish y'all many Blessings for the New Year.

North Winds and Sew Sweet Bee


Hello sweet friends!

It is October and the North winds have
been blowing lightly since yesterday.  This
is a real treat in Texas, it is like having air
conditioning outside.  lol!  Just wish it would
stay this way.  It is so nice to be able to enjoy
a cup of coffee outside.



I went to retreat a couple weeks ago
for a week.  We all had a blast with lots
of laughter and great food.  So much got
done while I was at retreat.  I made these
doll blankets for Skyler and Sloan along with
some little baby wipes and diapers for there
dolls.  I also got a queen size quilt top done,
just waiting on the backing to get here.
I will show you soon it is a scrappy blue and
brown quilt for my nieces best friends 9 year old's
bed.  Hope that makes sense.  lol!



I finished this months Sew Sweet Bee Block for
@lindabick if you follow her on Instagram.


She asked us to make her a red scrappy Bear Paw block.
I am sew in love with scrappy so this was sew much fun
for me.  There is some new Lecien Flower Sugar that is 
new in my shop sew of course I had to use some for 
Linda's block.
This is a free pattern over at Fat Quarter Shop

Hope y'all are having a great week sew far.

Harvey and Sew Sweet Bee


Hello sweet friends!
Hope y'all are well?
I know it has been awhile, but things have been 
busy over here in my little nest.  Not sure really where
to start.  lol!!


We had a visit for Hurricane Harvey.   This is a picture
from our sweet neighbors across the street.  They kept an
eye on our home while we where away.  We are very lucky
and blessed to have just got water in our garage.   Our home
was safe from the flood waters.  Sweet hubby and I stayed
with our son and his bride.  Hubby and our son worked a lot 
of long hours as they both work for the local electric company.  
It feels sew good to have things some what  back to normal.


I have been doing some customer quilting,
so if  you follow me on Instagram you may have
seen some of the quilts.  Last month I bought a 
computer for my long arm, and even though I 
have worked on a computer with a quilt machine
before there is still some what of a learning curve.


Gracey from Burlap and Blossom Patterns
was Queen Bee last month.  She asked that
we make her a scrappy cactus.  (this is one
of her patterns.)  This block is 12 1/2 inches
unfinished.  If you would like to check out 
her cute patterns you can visit her shop here.
She has some of the sweetest patterns and I promise
you will not be disappointed.

Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend and you
that you get to do something you love today.

Free Tutorial Windmill's For Skyler Rose


Happy May Day!
Geez it is already May 1st, seems like
it was just the beginning of the year. lol!
For being May 1st it is a gorgeous day 
out and there is a cool breeze.  I may 
have to go do some work outside and enjoy
this wonderful weather.



May is my month to be Queen Bee in Sew
Sweet Bee.  So I drew this Windmill block
and have wanted to make it for a long time
 and name it after my sweet niece's little girl.

Windmill's For Skyler Rose

So this is the block I am asking my bee
sister's to make me.


This is what you will need to make a block

4 White 4 1/4 inch squares
4 Purple 4 1/4 inch squares
and 
1  3 1/2 inch square

The white and purple 4 1/4 inch squares
 are going to be used to make half square 
triangles.  You will need 8 HST.
You can find the tutorial on how I make my
half square triangles in this post.

The 3 1/2 inch square will be the center of
your windmill.


This is the placement on how to sew them 
together.

Your block should be 9 1/2 inches.

Hope you enjoy making this block as much
as I do.

Try to do something each day that you love.

Hugs
