Fall quilt.

Hello my Quilty friends! Happy Fall.  Today's quilt is called Pumpkin Seeds. I bought this pattern 2 years ago and it cam with the Fig Tree fabric.  Love the Fall colors and beautiful Autumn feel. 
Do you see the stars in the pumpkins? I just love stars. 
Here is Guinness ( He looks thrilled) checking out what I was doing, then as I took the shot he looked at something more interesting across the street. 
Such cute pumkins! 
Warning the backing my cause vision impairment, LOL! It is a Gingham print of black and orange. The person that did the quilt said she started getting dizzy looking at it. Talking about Quilting, I had it quuilted with small pumpkins and vines.
I am Super happy with how this quilt turned out. 
Thanks for stopping by. Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Moroccan tile.

Hello my Quilty friends! Today I have a quilt for you that I made for my husband. His birthday is this week and I realized that I have never made him a quilt.  When I saw this quilt in the American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine  ( April 2016 Issue 141) I knew I had to make it. This was such a fun and easy quilt to put together. 
I really like the off set squares and the outer star. 
The backing is a soft fuzzy flannel.
I love the scrappy orange and yellow tiles as well as the quilting. 
I sure hope the birthday boy likes this, he is so hard to get things for birthdays or holidays.

Pumpkin Sky

Hello my quilty friends. 
Today's quilt is a fun little fall wall hanging. 
This pattern is called Pumpkin sky by Carried away. The pattern called for this to be a horizontal hanging and I wanted it to be vertical. I took a few liberties and orientated it to be the way I wanted. 
The best part is my dear friend who I made this with offered to quilt it for me. She did beautiful custom long arm work! I love how this turned out and it looks fantastic by my back door. 
Here she is working away.
She even let me give it a try. 
Here is a pillow that I made to go on a bench near the back door. 
Now the quilting is not as beautiful a Diane's. I am proud of it, first time using rulers and a bit of free hand. I think I found a pillow at Home goods that Will work for the inside. At great deal for $5!

Here is a close up of the beautiful custom work! Love the feathers and the leaves every so often. Hard to see in the photos but we used double batting to add some greatness to the quilting. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and until I see you again Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Fall Swap.

Hello my quilty friends. It has been a bit. I am still here and quilting away. Today I can finely share a little project that I made for a swap. 
I have been participating in Crafting With Lisa Marie. It is a fun little group over on FB. This is the 3 swap that I did and Lisa had a fun little game called Last Swapper Standing....This was so much fun!! We had about 30- 40 people join in and you were given a number and when a number was called you were out, but you got to take someone with you. The last person in the game got a fabric gift from everyone else that was in the game.  How Fun is that! 
So this swap is called Monster and Minis swap. 
Above is the Table runner that I made for my partner. 
Here it is on my buffet. I love the colors and the fun letters.
I used the great letters by Jaybird Quilts from her book called Alphabet Soup. This are such fun letters to make. They go together super easy. 
I also made this cute little pillow for my swap partner. 
Is this not a great witch shoe? I love the bows and the fun curl in the toe. 
I found this pattern over on Craftsy by a designer called Sewing with Squeak. 
I seem to be getting in the Halloween/Fall season. Thanks for stopping by Until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Hello my quilty friends. Hope you are all doing well and getting ready for the back to school schedule. We once again have an empty house and I feel a little sad   
                            Image result for empty nest
 So I head off to my favorite place.          
I have been sewing just not a lot to show for all the sewing I am doing.  

I have turned into one of those quilters with way too many projects in the works. I think right now I have about 2 or 3 quilt alongs ( Summer sampler 2018, Modern Plus Sample, and a Craftsy 2016 Summer block of the month)  that I am working on.   2 or 3 projects that I started and need to finish and about 4 quilts that I have started and had to put them away because they were miss behaving and needed a time out.  Not to mention the new projects that I  can not wait to get started on. Do any of you have this going on?

I did finish a small project, a paper piece project for Quilt Art Design. Janeen was looking for pattern tester for her Festive seasons blocks.
I chose the Star/Snowflake pattern. I used some shades of blue fabric that I had in stock and the white is Fairy frost fabric.....It is so pretty! I think Janeen called these stars and I Think they look like snowflakes what do you think?
I made two and reversed the colors. 
These are just 12" in  square in size and perfect to pick you up out of any Winter dull drums. I thought these were to cute not to share right away. I have one more pattern to test for Janeen and will get that done this weekend.

Royal Wedding- MSQ

Hello my Quilty friends today I have a flimsy for your viewing pleasure. This was a fun little finish and the pattern is from Missouri Star Quilts-MSQ called Royal Wedding. 
I ordered a layer cake from MSQ- Daily deal.  I was not sure what to make of it when I ordered it. But, just loved the beautiful fabric Something blue.  When I watched the video...I knew right away what to do with the 10" squares. 
I had some cream in my stash and also for the darker beige. I am super happy with how this turned out and best of all it only took me less than a week to get it finished. 
Such beautiful blues, creams and beige colors in this fabric.

two bags.

 Hello my quilty friends. Today I have two Aeroplane bags pattern by Sew Sweetness. 
I have wanted to make this bag for a long time. I was a bit intimidated by its size and that it is a bag. Sara has some great videos that you can purchase on her website and the Aeroplane bag is one of them.   
 The Video helped a ton! This one is for my Sister, she had a birthday this past  Tuesday.
 Perfect Purple cone flower!
 This one is for myself, I used the black and teal cone flower fabric and black cork for the bottom and handles.
I am super happy with how these turned out and  I dont know why I was so worried about making them. Can't wait to see what my Sister says! 
Until I see you agian. Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide
