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

Plus sign quilt along.

Hello my quilty friends. I know it has been a long time! Hubby and I are in the home stretch for getting our house ready to put it on the market. Yea!!! So close, Next week are the photos and then on April 13th it is OPEN house time. I am so done! Prayers that this house sells quickly. Others in the neighborhood have sold the first week. Poor dog is so upset. Not letting him have any fun! No more digging in the yard or scratching (Knocking) the front door to come in. Oh yeah a bath too! Lots of new rules for him. He is going to be very happy at the new house. 
So the quilt above I finished in January and waited until now to show you all. 
This is the Meadow Mist design and Quilted Blooms , Plus sign quilt along. I just love how this turned out. Such a great modern quilt. I used these fabrics. 
Here is what I used for the backing. 
It is funny, I found this backing at Backside fabrics.  I won the gift certificate to Backside fabrics! So looking forward to using it. Lots of great backing fabrics at their shop. 
When I took these photos it was such a cold windy day in MI ( January) That I only got a few. The one above is an action shot, the wind blew it off the fence and I snapped the photo as it was falling. Now you can see the whole quilt. 
Thanks so much for stopping by. Thank you to all the great sponsor for this quilt along and A BIG thank you to Cheryl and Paige for the great fun quilt along!
Until I see you again, Wishing you quilt Hugs~Heide

Lots of love.

Hello my quilty friends! Happy Valentines day. Hope everyones day is filled with love and happiness. I have a new quilt for you today. This one is called Heart strings by V and Co. I used the beautiful metallic ombre fabric  also by V and Co. Have you seen the new colors by them!! So pretty.
I tried something new with this quilt. I used Freshly pieced perfect HST's templates. 
I really like them, there is no trimming of the HST. and they come out perfect every time. Not sure if it is a time saver, but it works for me. 
I used my super yummy and soft minky for the backing. 

 and I had it quilted with a clam shell pattern. 
I love that not one of the hearts is the same. It was a fun and easy quilt to make. 
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

All I want for Christmas.....

Hello my quilty friends. I know I am early or late, depends on how you look at it. I worked hard in December to get this done, I just did not have it in me to finish it in 2018. So I now look at it as I have a beautiful quilt to pull out for Christmas 2019! 
For this lovely I used the Christmas Fig fabric by Fig tree quilts.  The pattern is by Sherri Falls Holiday Wishes book. 
I love stars and the gingham  which I also love made this pefect.I knew I had to make it. Such a versatile block.
I did see this in Halloween fabric it looked fantastic! 

I put a very bright flannel dot on the back so it will be snuggley to curl up with during the holidays.

It is quilted with a holly berry pattern by my quilting friend Diane over at Creative stitching services.
Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Small but Sweet.

Hello my quilty friends! Long time no see. It is a snowy day here in MI and a bit warmer that what it is going to be. I thought it would be a good idea to get some photos of this sweet little baby quilt.
A good friend of mine, her niece is having her first baby in May so I thought I would make a sweet  little quilt. I know she is having a little girl and the middle name may be Rose. 
I made this using the scrap backing from by Meadow mystery quilt.   you can see it in the link. I also added 2 fat quarters  and some white fabric. The back is a nice black and white gingham. I love Gingham fabric, just not sewing with it, it is never straight. 

This is a Missouri star that I found on MSQ videos. It turned out super cute and I hope the mom to be loves it. 

I have been super busy with the move, we have done a bunch to get the new house the way we want, paint, new kitchen cabinet handles, lights and hauling a bunch of the our stuff over. 
How about a peek??
Here is the old handles. 
and now the new. 

I love what a difference these handles and drawer pulls  made. 
We also changed the lights in the kitchen. The old lights were florescent boxes ( long tube lights).
here are the new ones. 

These also made a huge difference, they are so pretty at night and make some pretty cool designs on the ceiling. 
Thanks so much for stopping by. Until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Heart pillow and purging.

Hello my quilty friends and Happy New Year to you. 
I have a small show and tell to show you. I have been sewing. I made a Christmas quilt just in time for the new year, LOL! It is at the quilters right now and it will be back later this week for me to finish off. 

I have started a few quilt alongs (HST BOM)  and surprise to hear one is almost ( Meadowmist Modern plus QAL) done. I am pertty excited about both. 
I have been very busy purging items. My basement is becoming pretty empty, Yea Trying to get as much stuff gone or other stuff moved to the new house. My daughter was a great help, I don't know about you by I was hanging on to sentimental things. Baby bedding, a baby bassinet. I showed them to my daughter and she said GONE! Teapot collection, GONE! Decor that I put away and have not seen in a few years, GONE! Not sure if the Goodwill store is going to love me or hate me??
We have been spending time at the new house, painting and just a bunch of stuff to get it to become our home. The kids were a great help, my Son and his Girlfriend have help us paint and so did my daughter. 
I have called it my painting warrior! 

I am hoping to have some thing a little more exciting for you all soon. Right now I have to head off to work. Until I see you agian, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Graduation quilt and exciteing news.

Hello my Quilty friends! It has been a long time, and I am sorry. I have been sewing and quilting. I just have not had time to post. I do have some fun and exciting news. We are buying a new home!! 
Here is is. 
I just love it!  We are going to down size to a ranch style home with acreage. I am super excited and  a bit nervous and overwhelmed. We close next week and for a while we will own two homes. We need to get this one market ready and de clutter, which works out great I can just bring stuff to the new house. So I will be busy for the next few months. Painting and de cluttering! The last thing to go will be my sewing room, hopefully I will get some sewing in.
I do have a new quilt to show you. I made two of these, one is completely done and the other just needs a binding.  So here is the first.
This is for my son who will be graduating in May from MSU the 2nd one will be for his girlfriend who is also graduating on the same day. I added an extra row of gray on the top as well as the bottom. My son says he is only 6 ft but I swear he is taller. So this is a nice size for him to even cover his toes.
Here is a close up of the log cabin blocks and some of the fabric. 
I used a cozy green flannel for the back, he did not want minky. My son says minky is too hot! His girlfriends quilt got Minky and I love it and I think she will too! 
The quilting has Spartan helmets scatter through out. 

I am super happy with how this turn out and I think the kids will love them too. The are big Football fans, and are super proud of their Big 10 school. It was a easy pattern and did not take up many blocks to create the MSU. The pattern is by AD design called Alphabet soup quilt patterns.  I could not find a website, so I linked to the FB site. 
One last look.
So until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide 
Oh yea....GO GREEN!! 
Finish up Friday ( last one)
