Design wall Monday!!

It happens every year.  I get my puppy his spring hair cut and then the weather turns cold.  We have a forcast of freezing rain, ice pellets and snow the rest of this week.  That's ok it's a good excuse to stay in and sew/quilt/embroider!!
Our local guild is having a Quilt show in May and I am helping organize it and having a vendors table to try and get some local exposure for my quilt patterns.  So I am very busy trying to get things ready.
I will be posting my patterns in my etsy shop when they are finished. 

Here is my baby before and after his make-over.  When he is clipped he looks and acts like a puppy again even though he will be 16 in May.



 My design wall Monday project is a baby quilt.  The pattern will be in my etsy shop by Friday.

Have a great day!!

Spring is Here!!

The weather here has been beautiful the last few days.  I have been out bike riding already which is usually unheard of in March.  We are ususally 6feet under snow.  Oh well I am not complaining.  Even though I have spent so much time outside I did manage to get my March BJP done.
I am not so sure about the colours but I do like the watch face.  It is from an old watch.  I am trying to incorporate something found into each piece. 
I am also working on some new quilt patterns for the quilt show in May.  When they are ready I will be posting them for all to see wether you like it or not. ha!ha!

I am on my way to get my "baby" groomed so tomorrow I will post the before and after pictures of his make-over.

Have a great day!

Design wall Monday on Tuesday?

I missed the mark on the design wall Monday feature.  So I will post it today instead.  I am currently working on a new pattern that I hope will be in my etsy shop by next week.  So here is a sneak peak of one of the blocks.
bow tie block

This block is pieced by machine not by hand which made it go a lot faster.  Although I like hand piecing, I do like this method.  If anyone would like me to post a tutorial on making this block I would be happy to, just let me know.

Have a great day!!
