Goodbye 2019, Hello the Roaring 20's.

    Hello my quilty friends. 2019 is coming to a close in a few short hours and I am reflecting on what I have made this past year.
                                          Image result for goodbye 2019 hello 2020 quotes
   The last few months, there has not been a lot of quilts or quilting due to a demanding job (The move, getting the old house ready to be put on the market, and now a I am pretty exhausted by the time I get out of work and getting ready for the holidays.). 
   This is just a few of what I have to show for 2019.

I made this for a dear friend, she was expecting her first grandson. 

Heart strings
I love this quilt. 
It has some of the softest Minky on the back, super cuddly. 💓💓 This quilt! 

And the last most viewed quilt of 2019 is........

Red and white #2. 

   This is such a sweet quilt. Simple Ohio star block . The fabric is one of my favorites. 

   So my wish for you is that you find a bunch of inspiration, fabric and quilting time in 2020. 
Happy New year to you all. 
Until I see you again, wishing you all Quilty Hugs~Heide

Hello my quilty friends, Today I have the sweetest little quilt for you. Nothing is better that baby quilts! I have go to one of my favorites....Elizabeth Hartman's Fancy fox quilt.
This is my 3 or 4th fox quilt and it never gets old. Everytime I make a little fox, I smile. These are just so cute! 
When I sent it off the the quilter, I gave her free rein on the quilting. She picked this cute paw print design.
  The binding is left over 2.5 inch strips and I also used the a flange binding technique. 
 The backing is a soft snuggly flannel to match the colors in the front. 
 This sweet quilt is getting ready to get packed up and I am sending it to a friend that will become a Grandmother for the first time....She is super excited! I am looking forward to see what they think about this sweet quilt.
 Thank you for stopping by and until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Cream and Sugar

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a big finish for you. This is a queen size quilt called Cream and Sugar by It's sew Emma.  I used all Fig tree quilts fabrics. I just love the tone on tone fabrics.
Here is a close up of the quilting. I have the quilter use a feather print all over.

Here is a peek of the back. I won a gift certificate from Backside Fabrics. The backing is just perfect from and matches the colors in the front.
 I also used wool batting to keep you warmer during the cool MI Falls. Using wool also makes the quilt lighter.

Last peek at the whole quilt. Thanks for stopping by and wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Wrapped in Ribbon

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a cute little table runner for you. 
Last month at my quilt guild we had a wonderful speaker-Kathy Groves. You can find her on FB and she is a certified Quiltworx instructor. She brought so many beautiful quilts to show us I fell in love with the paper pieced quilts. A bunch of the girls took an all day class with Kathy and they started this runner. I could not go because I just started my job, there were a bunch of other things I miss out due to that awful place called work! But that is a story for another time. 
  Kathy mostly brought her quilts and a very few patterns. I did buy two smaller patterns thinking I will give it a try. I watched a few of the Quiltworx you-tube videos and this is what I made. The patterns were super easy and I do love how it turned out.
It is super hard to capture how pretty this runner turned out due to the length of it. 
Above is the whole runner. 
 A close up of one of the stars. 
The back is a little hodge podge of the left over fabrics. They were all batiks. 
 It is just perfect on my new dinning room table. Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

A quick hello!

Hello my quilty friends. I know it has been a while. I am trying to get back to normal after our move. I have been doing some bits and piece sewing. A mug rug here and there and working on a large quilt that I will show you later in the post.  First of all isn't this pillow just the cutest?? It is a Quilt Art Design pattern called Mr Franks Coffee and I made it for a mini swap.  I thought the BG fabric was so fun and went well with the blues that I used on the scarf and mug. 
I used the same fun fabric for the back and used a tried and true hidden zipper installation method that I found at S.O.T.A.K handmade.
 I do hope my swap partner like my pillow. 
So I have also been working on this pattern.  I believe I saw that it was a sew along over at Fat Quarter shop. 

I have finished all the blocks and  now I am working on putting them into rows.  As I get all the rows put together I will send it off to the quilter. 
Here are some of the smaller blocks. I believe the small blocks are about 5"X5".
Here are some of the larger blocks and the fabric at the bottom will be my backing.
Nothing too exciting that I have been working on, I am so looking forward to the cream and sugar to be done so I can start on something else.  Wishing you all Quilty Hugs~ Heide

H2H- Cotton Candy.

Hello my quilty Friends. It is time for Hands 2 Help.If you do not know about Hands 2 help be sure to check out Sarah's Blog Here. 
 This year was a bit of a challenge for me. I knew I did not have time to put a quilt together because of our move. So as I was cleaning out my sewing room, I found this flimsy and I even had a backing the went with it! I sent it off to the quilter and  Quickly put a binding on it. Which was not done that quickly! 
This is a Jelly Roll race quilt made out of two Jelly rolls. 
The back of the quilt is made with flannel, to make it nice and snuggly. 
A cute little close up of the fabric. 
I am so happy with this finish. I hope to find a local Elderly home that I can donate this too.  With being new to the area, It may take me a bit longer, but hoping to get out this week to find this beauty a new home! Thank you for stopping by and until I see you again, Wishing You Quilty Hugs~Heide

Red and white #2

Hello my Quilty friends. I have a finish for you! This lovely took me a month to get the binding on.  I finished it this weekend and could not be happier about it. I just love Red and White quilts! I do not know what it is about them.  They sure do make me happy. I made another red and white quilt you can see it here.
We had the perfect spring day. I was able to get this photos. 
A bit of a breezy day. 
This fabric is from the Fig Tree line ( I won the red fabric fat quarter). The pattern is the Ohio star. I saw this quilt done at a local quilt shop ( they also did a red and white) and It quickly moved up my to do list. They used very modern fabrics in brighter reds. 
A look at the back. 
A closer look and my label.
 I am so happy I got this finished this weekend. 
On the House news the old house is on the market, we had our first open house on Saturday. We had a good turn out and now all I have to do is keep it clean! 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again~ Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide
