Giveaway!!!

Hi folks...I haven't had a giveaway in quite some time, except during a blog hop.  This time around is a bit different for me. We have a sponsor who is going to provide the gift for one of my followers.

Speed-Sew will send two tubes of their fantastic fabric glue to one lucky winner. I have used this glue and it holds great!!!!

You can use this on fabric for crafts, for repairing tears....it goes on and on!!!!!  Click on the link above to see more of what you can do with this. It is easy to use and dries quickly and has a great hold.  What more could you ask for?????  The picture above belongs to Speed-Sew.

Now...to enter, you just have to be a follower of my blog...so comment below telling me how you follow.  If you spread the word about this giveaway...you get a second entry. So; make sure you tell me that you posted it....ok???

Thanks for taking part, and good luck!!!  A random draw will be one week from today.....

Another Finish

As you know, I am working on customer quilts....well just finished this beautiful Bargello on my Tiara.
I delivered the quilt yesterday to a very happy lady, who did a super job piecing this quilt!  I don't have the best pictures, but here is the Bargello....

this is the whole quilt draped over a chair...
a closer look at the quilting....I did big flowers all over this quilt with meandering loops joining them here and there. it couldn't have gone any better...so very pleased with it. And I must say, I love the colours in it.

Free Motion Quilting Challenge/March

Another month and another pillow....I had lots of fun doing this one!!  Quiltshopgal over here....http://quiltshopgal.com/ gave us 3 options again, and  I chose #1, which was based on the 2012 FMQ Challenge by Patsy Thompson.  so, here is my version for this month...based on borders( mainly).

This pillow is a satin fabric...quilted on my Tiara, using Signsture thread top and bottom.  I quilted the flower in th Center, then some dense stippling. first border is squiggly lines...second border is a single feather spine...I used the Versa Tool for the straight lines of the borders.

close up of th borders...
I am linking up to Quitshopgal at th above link...come take a look at the rest of the pillows for this months challenge.

Bird Tree Blog Hop

Hello folks!!! I am so very pleased to be here with this wonderful group today. I have been anxiously awaiting my day.  I want to extend a huge thank you to Madame Samm...here, http://www.sewwequilt.com/2015/03/i-can-and-i-will-chalk-talk-with-us.html, and Lana...here,

Now....I get to show you what I made.  I didn't buy the fabric line because I could sell fabric, I have so much! But it is an adorable line...I just love the tree panels I've seen. So, maybe later?????
I have 3 pieces for this hop...first up,  This red Cardinal table topper...the Center fabric and the star points are Robert Kauffman(I believe)...been awhile since I checked. I made some of these before Christmas as well.


next is this table runner of the same fabric....
And the two of them...

And my very favorite of the projects....my quilt.

Now this was taken on the only snow surface I could climb in my back yard...lol
We just have too much snow for me to get to one of my benches...or even find that bench for a better picture...lol.  I machine quilted it with cathedral window curves in all of the windows. I meandered between the windows, and the borders are done with swirls on the print...figure eights in the rust borders and little loopy lines in the white....you may be able to see it some, I hope.

A few different looks at it....inside.





The center of this quilt is a panel of winter scenes that I just loved... With the little red birds.  the border print fabric is called 'Oh Canada' by Stonehenge.   I used this line back a few months when I made the gift quilt for the RCMP detachment in Moncton. 

I am calling this quilt 'Canadian, eh'. I really hope you enjoyed the visit my friends!!!  Please stop by the rest of the blogs.  Here is your schedule for today, and below that...there just might be a giveaway!!!!
