Hello my quilty friends. Hope you are all doing well. I have a new favorite quilt for you today.  This was in my UFO pile and I finished it. Sent it off to my friend to custom quilt it. I was lucky that she wanted to do a road trip, so she delivered it in person. 
There is two layers of batting and each butterfly pops. This pattern is by Edyta Sitar. I used batiks (layer cake) fabric for each applique butterfly and background. 

This is hanging up on a wall that  gets plenty of day light and I get to see it daily. 

A few close ups of the quilting. 

I am so happy with how this turned out and the quilting is lovely! 

Thank so much for stopping by and until I see you again. Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Red, white and blue floral.

Hello my quilty friends. Hope you are all doing well and finding time to sew. As of now I have a visitor in town. My son is here and We are enjoying our time together. Boating, Fishing, playing board games. It is nice to have everyone together.  I did find a few minutes to get the last border on this quilt. I saw the Bee Patriotic quilt along with Lori Holt and thought the squares were super cute and I had the book Vintage Christmas. 

 This is one of my favorite blocks for the 12 that I made. I just love the fabrics. The fabric line I used was called Mackinaw Island by Minick and Simpson. Such a beautiful line, very hard to find. I bought a fat quarter about 3-4 months ago on line.

I was just tickled that I have the Vintage Chirstmas book and I could use it for something other than a Christmas quilt. Thinking outside of the box. I started to think, What about a Halloween quilt with orange and black fabrics?

A few close ups of my favorite blocks.

One last look at this fun Patriotic quilt. 

Wishing all my quilty friends in the USA a very happy and safe 4th of July. If you would like to see more of these fun quilts be sure to check out #Beepatrioticsewalong on Instagram. I love how creative some people got with their blocks. 
Until I see you again wishing you Quilty  Hugs~Heide

star pillows.

Hello my quilty friends, I have two pillows for you today.  A little bit of decor for the 4th of July. These chairs are in my breezeway and I always like to have a little something to add some color and these are perfect for July. The pattern is from Lori Holt- Bee in my Bonnet. I am doing her Bee Patriotic quilt along. The quilt is coming along and I am so excited about it. This pillow was a little extra on her blog. 
Here is a closer look at the dark blue one, all made with scraps. This cutie is headed down the road to my friends front porch. Now I did not use any of Lori's sew simple shapes. She has a few other cute little projects on I am a paper crafter and happen to have circle and star dies. 
Here is a closer look at the teal, red and blue pillow, I 💗 this one.  Again all made with scraps. 
This is what I will display in breezeway.  For the back I did a simple envelope closer so I can just slip it on and off. 
One more look before I go at the two pillows together. 
 Hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July. I know i will be having to put my poor Guinness in the basement, due to the fireworks. The poor old guy it terrified of them. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Two fabric Bargello.

Hello my quilty friends. I have a new finished quilt for you today. It is a 2 fabric Bargello. I used about 1.5 yards of  Kaufman Effervescence.  The second fabric is 1.5 yards of an ombre fabric. Sorry I do not remember what I used or where I got it.  I used a 3rd fabric  in the border and 4th on the back. 
Here is a look at the Effevescence fabric. You can also see the quilting which was done by my friend at Creative Stitching Services,  she does beautiful work. 
Here is a closer look at the quilting. I did use a pattern and I will not post the pattern name, you can google two fabric bargello. I just did not like it, too many pages and I did not think it made sense.  I ended up doing my own thing to  make the pattern.
I carried a bit of the check pattern out into the border. 
A peek of the backing. This was to be a wall hanging and I am crying.....I do not have a wall space for it. 
One last look before I go. Thanks for stopping by. Until I see you again, Wishing you Quitly Hugs~Heide

Red, White and blue stars.

Hello my quilty friends! Hope you are all safe and sound. I have been doing well. Trying to get to my sewing room everyday but, I have a cute little fur puppy that is off of her schedule with us home. If I bring her down, she pulls fabric from the shelves. It's a good thing she is cute!!
This fun pattern is by A Bright corner called- Skipper. This pattern will make a quilt in 4 different sizes.  I made a throw. 
This is also for Hands 2 Help over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I still need to get it quilted, just not sure when, with all this mess going on. 
                            108 Smashing Atoms Wide Quilt Backing by Color Principle for Henry Glass - Patriotic 
 This is the backing that came this week. I thought it would be super fun. 
 It did not seem like a windy day when I went outside. With this just being a flimsy, it keep blowing away. LOL!

Hello my quilty friends. I hope you are all doing well. I have a new quilt for you today. This was a free pattern from Jordan fabrics. This was so fun and I just love the pattern. It gives you plenty of room for some beautiful quilting to show.
I used a bit of my stash for this one and only bought some fabric for the border and for the beautiful backing too. 
Since I used  Bonnie and Camille fabric on the front I decided to use the larger flower print on the back.  I found this over at Backside Fabrics. Backside is one of my favorite online shops to find large backing fabric. One of my least favorite things is to 5-6 yards of fabric and figure out how to cut it for my back. My favorite is figure once and send it off! 
This quilt is now on my couch to make me smile. 
I have not been quilting much due to this little cutie. This is Killian and her big Bro, Guinness is so good with her.  We got her from a rescue and she has kept us pretty busy. When I was at work, I would not have a minute to myself until I got her to sleep. 
Now with this horrible mess going on, I am home until April 16 or longer. So she is getting lot of attention with all of us home. 
This quilt went together super fast and I just love the effect. 
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to have more to show you soon. until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty HUGS~Heide
