Cathedral-stars.

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

Crown.

Hello my quilty friends. Today I have a colorful quilt for you called  Crown quilt, this pattern is by Jenny over at MSQ. 
I made this beauty for my brother out in California. This is one BIG quilt! 
I love the bright colors next to the white and gray. I used 3 - 5" charm packs of the print and 3- 5" of white and Some yardage of the gray. The fabric is called Painterly petals by Robert Kaufman. While working with the charm pack I thought the colors were kind of muddy and not as bright as I wanted, but  seeing the quilt all together I am very happy with how it looks. I tried very hard not to have the same fabrics in the same block or next to each other in the quilt.
Here is a close up of the quilting, we used a thread called Hawaiian blue. Hard to see in the photo. 
I also went out in a snow storm! It was still light out at 5:45PM and the snow looked so pretty and the best thing was I had a snow day the next morning. 
A look at the backing. I though it was fun and kind of masculine for my brother. I found this a Backside Fabrics, I love their selections and that I do not have to piece a backing. Here is what I used.
This big quilt is going to cost me a small fortune to send to California.  Any suggestions, which is the easiest way to get it there?
 I hope you like my latest finish. I am very happy with it and think my brother and his wife are going to love it. Thanks so much for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

4 x 4 love

Hello my quilty friends. 
Here with a sweet little Valentines day quilted pillow. 
I whipped this cute little pillow up this morning. Here are some of my favorite hearts. 
All of these hearts were made from scraps from my pink scrap bin. 
and the background fabric was left over from my Sugar and cream quilt. 
So happy and please that this was just a sweet little project that I could get done in just a morning. 
Happy Valentines day! Until I see you again, wishing your Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Update- I made another pillow last night. This one is in reds and the heart were just a bit bigger.

Witches night out.

Hello my Quilty Friends. 
I have a finish for you, This was back from the quilter back in Nov, 2019. I just could not find the time to finish the binding until now. This is going to be a super fun quilt to put out next Halloween. 
Here are some of my favorite blocks. 
The hat is my absolute favorite, I just love the flower fabric. 
I made 3 of these large pumpkins. 
 Here is the top half of the quilt. Sorry about the poor photos. My official quilt holder was busy clearing the driveway of the icy snow, that started falling in the early morning here in MI. 

 Here is the view from the backyard this morning. 

Are these bubble coming out of the cauldron just the cutest! 

And of course Minky for the back. The quilting has spider webs, mini bats and moons. It shows up perfect on both the front and back. 
So there you are folks, my first finish of 2020. Thanks for stopping by. Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

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.
The top 3 view for 2019
Sweetness. 
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.

Sweetness.

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
