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.

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! 
My

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.

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

Graduation gift.

Hello my quilty friends, Welcome! Well...it 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

Little Foxes.

Hello and Welcome. Today I have a repeat quilt but, oh so cute! My sister asked me for a baby quilt for a boy and I sent her a few photos of different quilts and she picked this cute fox pattern. I  just love this adorable little pattern.  The fox faces are so darn cute! Pattern by Elizabeth Hartman.
I used a cute little 5 pack batik bundle from Joann Fabrics. I have made this quilt two other times and it is such a fun easy little block , it goes together quilt easily.
I used this adorable flannel that I thought was fun for a little boy. 

Like I said this is such a fun easy little quilt. I put it together this weekend it even has the cute little flange binding. I think the flange binding adds just a little pop. 
Had to show you how I got my photos last night. Two clips and a patio chair up on the table, LOL! I am pretty happy with how this turned out and hope my Sister likes it. 
Thanks for stopping by and Until I see you again... Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Hands 2 help 2018

Hello my quilty friends! Hope you are doing well. Today I have a quilt that I made for Hands 2 help, you can find more info about this over at Confessions of a Fabric addict. I believe this is my 3rd year participating with this charity quilt challenge. 


Here is the full quilt I love the fun center panel the I used and the fun color outer fabrics. Sure to bring a smile and a cuddle to a child somewhere. 



I had it quilted in red with this cute little paw print to go with the fun fabric. 
I even made a pillow case with the left over fabrics. 
This quilt is going to go off to Little Lambs foundation for kids. 
Here is a little something about what they do. 

                                                
Little Lambs Foundation for Kids is a non profit 501(c)3 Organization operating out of Utah which provides comfort kits to children ages newborn to 17 years old who are transitioning into foster care, emergency shelter or who have been hospitalized, by providing them with a little comfort in a bag.

I thought this cute little quilt would bring some comfort to a little one. 
 I use a flannel for the back and binding to make it soft and increase the cuddlebility factor. As for the pattern, I kind of came up with it on my own.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you go check out Hands 2 help. I know it is a great cause and you get to do something you like to help it. 
Until I see you again wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Sky full of stars.

Hello my quilty friends. I have a finish for you. This is a pattern by Kristina Brinkerhoff @ Center Street Quilts. I found this beauty over at the Moda Bake shop and here is the link to it. 
I had some left over fat quarters from this quilt, and wanted to use them up since it is one of my favorite fabric lines.  
I am also a big fan of stars in quilts...I don't know what it is but I love them! 
And a graphic print fabric...OH MY!!
The backing is half the white  and half black....a bit scrappy. 
Such a fun easy pattern. I am sure there will be another quilt made from this pattern! 
Until I see you again. Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide
