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. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again, wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

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

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a ombre quilt for you. I was not sure when I first made this if I would like it. The more I see it the more I love it. The colors are so bright,  warm and happy. 
I just love the quilting on it to. We used an orange thread on it, which shows up great on the gray.
Not sure what I am going to do with the little lovely. For now I am just going to enjoy looking at it.
I purchased this pattern and fabric in Dec of 2015 from Craftsy. I believe it came in cool colors or the warm. 
Here is a close up of the quilting. I also gave it my favorite backing....Minky!  It is gray to match the gray in the front.
I did a nice scrapy binding with the left over fabric pieces.  Scrappy binds are so fun! 
Thanks for stopping by my quilty friends. Tomorrow I head out with my daughter on a wonderful vacation Over Seas. I am getting super excited and will share photos when I return. So until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Tote bag swap.

Hello my quilty friends.  Today's project is a  tote bag that I made for a swap. I joined a swap group on FB- Crafting with Lisa Marie. You have to join the group to participate.  Have you ever done a swap? They are so fun. I love getting packages and when it is something that is crafty it is even more fun! 
So my swap partner told me she likes blues and green. I had a bunch of fabric left over from my first Meadow mystery quilt. 
I used a pattern that I found on Pintrest but, changed it up a bit to suit what I wanted to make. I did not put any pockets in the bag so I made a extra little pouch. 
This is the I-Spy pouch by Sew Sweetness. 
My partner loved the bag and I am so happy she did! 
Here is a photo she sent me using the bag.
Image may contain: one or more people and outdoor

and I will not go with out showing you the beautiful bag I received! 
Isn't it fantastic! Lots of pockets and the adorable fabric . I just love the buttons! My partner thought I could use it when I go fabric shopping. Of course I can not wait to go fill it up! It will hold lots of fabric. I had some goodies in my package too, sad to say they are gone, but yummy! 

partner even sent Guinness a present!
He was so happy! Sorry about the blurry photo but, he grabbed the bag and ran. I had to chase him around the house to get the treats back before he destroyed the bag and ate everything in it, LOL!
One more photo of this lovely bag before I go. 
Such cute fabric! 
Looking forward to the next swap in this group I had such a good time making my bag as well and receiving my bag. 
Thanks for stopping in and until I see you again Wishing You Quilty Hugs~Heide.

Any one else haveing the same problem?

Hello my quilty friends. Just a quick check in. There is a problem with Blogger
                                                    Image result for computer issue images
 I use to get emails when you would leave a comment on my posts and I love to get back to you. I noticed that about a month ago that this process stopped happening. I thought it was some thing with the new internet laws.  When my son got home yesterday, I asked him  ( he is my tech guy). After about 2mins of him doing the research there is a problem with a lot of Blogger users. Blogger is aware and working on the problem. 
So do not think I am ignoring you! I love hearing from you,reading your comments and I hope Blogger resolves this problem soon. 
Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Rose bud

Hello my quilty friends, Welcome! 
Today I have another gift for you. 
One of my husbands long time co-works is retiring soon. They have worked together the last 20 years. I asked him is he thought she would like a quilt, and he said yes. So together we picked out the pattern from my stash and went out to get fabric. 
Ken (hubby) pick out this fabric from the line called Roses on the vine by Maywood studios. The pattern is by Meadow Mist- Cheryl's 2016-2017 quilt along.
I just love this pattern. 
 This roses are so sweet, and I love this green fabric with the little rose buds. 
 Of coursed I back it with the good stuff! Minky.
Hoping that the soon to be retiree likes this quilt.

Graduation gift.

Hello my quilty friends, Welcome! is that time of year again. Graduation time. Our family had a Graduation party yesterday. So what is a quilter to do? Make a quilt! This is what I made for the graduate. 
I asked her Grandmother what colors she liked and I believe I hit the mark with this one. I wanted it to be modern so I used the great pattern by The Tulip Patch called Helix.
The fabric is from Craftsy a Lily and loom called Little Bee. 

This is such a big quilt 70" X 90"and of course I used minky for the back. When the gift was opened the Graduate asked did you use the "Good stuff" for the back and was quite please to see and feel that I did! 
I used this beautiful teal for the backing and My friend at Creative Stitching Services quilted it with the pattern called-Hawthorne. 

Here is a photo of the Grad and I when she received the quilt. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again~ Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide
