Hester's Hats.

 Hello my Quilty friends. Today I am sharing this cute Halloween wall hanging, called Hester's Hats. I found a kit at the local quilt shop and it kept calling me back. I knew I had to buy it and started it right away! 

This is my favorite hat. I just love the floral fabric as the background. Most the fabrics in this quilt are Tim Holtz. The only fabric I changed was the black border. The kit had an orange plaid, which I thought was too much. I used a black sparkly fabric.

In this photo you can see the fun design I chose in the quilting.

You can really see it on the orange backing. This was left over from another project. 

I love how this quilt turned out. It was fun and quick to put this together. I have it hanging up and it makes me smile every time I walk by it. 

So Glad you stopped by and until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide


Monday Making. 

Can I get a Whoop- Whoop.

Wanda 2.0


Hello my Quilty friends. I have a new finish for you today.  This quilt is called Wanda, pattern by GE designs. I am calling it Wanda 2.0 because it is my second Wanda quilt. The first one you can see here. 

I use some of the first fabric that I bought when first quilting. Fabric line called Aloha Girl by Fig Tree quilts. It is dated 2014. I had other plans for this fabric and as you can see the other plans never happened. πŸ˜‚

This us such sweet fabric and I love how it turned out. 

Here is a look at the back so you can see the beautiful quilting pattern as well as the bright blue fabric. I made this quilt for hand to heart and it was donated to a charity.

One more look. The photos just do not do the fabric justice. It is such a pretty fabric line.

Thanks for stopping by and until I see you again wishing you quilty hugs~Heide

Christmas panel in July.

 Hello my quilty friends, 

 I have a cute little Christmas panel for you. I  used a tutorial from Jordan fabrics called Secret panel. This is a simple easy way to work with panels. I am normally not drawn to them but, I wanted a holiday wall hanging to replace my beautiful butterfly wall hanging you can see that here.  



I do wish this panel was a bit bigger. Sad to say this panel is not longer available. It is called -Holiday Flourish 13 - Silver Tree Metallic Panel Holiday Flourish 13 - Silver Tree Metallic Panel 

A google search may find some store with it in stock.  


A closer look at the simple quilting. I had the quilter add this on to a wide back piece that I had left over and because the back is only seen by me it did not need to match.  


It was a hot buggy day when I snapped the photo on temporary πŸ•  dog fence( IT has been up for two years). I hope that we have the invisible fence installed before winter because to be honest I hate this green fence. It works, it keeps the dogs in and safe.....ITS SO UGLY!! 🀣

That is all for today, hope you are all enjoying your July and until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide

Morewood mystery. QAL

Hello my quilty friends Happy July! This beauty got finished last week, on a road trip. It has been sitting in a room at my house for about two months and it just needed the binding. I enjoy putting bindings on but, I really enjoy putting them on while on a road trip. We took a trip to Wisconsin and I got two quilts finished. Whoot-Whoot!

This quilt was a mystery quilt along with Meadow Mist Designs called Morewood Mystery. Cheryl has such great QAL, I have loved each quilt and she has a new QAL that started yesterday called Macaroon mystery. 

All fabrics for this quilt were from my stash, except the backing. I just love how they go together  to make this happy little quilt. 

My favorite fabric was the sweet little flowers. 

A bit of the quilting and my label.

This quilt found a new home with my Sons future in laws. I gave it to them this past weekend up North at a wine tasting event. They just loved it and of course the backing was a big hit! 

That's it for today, Until I see you again Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Happy May

 Hello my quilty friends. Happy May! I love this time of year, even if I am a hot mess due to allergies, LOL.

 I love to see everything in blooms, all the birds busy nesting and  singing. All the trees in bloom and new growth from everywhere. I makes me happy.

Today I have a new finish for you. This is called Huddle by Eye Candy Quilts.  I finished piecing this quilt a year and a half ago. I just was not happy with the finish so I put it away and did not think of it again until about 2 months ago. when I decided to get it to the quilter, thinking that that might help.

 The quilting helped a bunch and love the fun spring colors in it.  πŸ’“πŸ’“The sweet backing fabric! 

You can see the quilting pattern in the above photo. It is quilted with a light teal thread.

Not sure where this cutie is headed. I think it has grown on me and it might just stay. 

Hope you all enjoy some stitching time. Until I see you again, wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide


First Monday in May 


Brag about your beauty.

Project bags

 Hi My Quilty Friends. A little something different  for you today. I have been trying different patterns to make project bags  for my cross stitch. I found this tutorial in YouTube here.  It is a fast and easy project. I am pretty happy  with how they turned out. The above is such fun fabric for summer and my strawberry stitching. I have been playing around with a few different patterns and not happy with them. I have about 3 bags in my sewing room that have not turned out, or that are in a time out because they were not working. So to get 4 of these done in about half a day I was super happy.

Here is one that is red white and blue for my Patriotic stitching. All bags measure 11" X 8".

I made two of these bags above, one will go to a friends. 

and I made this one with some left over fabric from my stash. 

 I made 4 bags in about 2.5 hours it took me about 1/2 an hour to get the charms on each of the zippers pulls.

Thought I would pop in and show you what I am up too. 

Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~ Heide

Wanda and a few stitiching projects.


Hello my Quilty friends, boy has it been a long time! I have been busy and just not feeling like blogging. I have quilts to show you. Today's quilt is called Wanda. It is a pattern by GE designs.  This great and easy pattern uses up charm packs. It is such a fun easy quilt to put together. I made two! Going to be making a third. I will show you the 2nd Wanda after I get her binding on.

Here is a close up of the quilting and fabric. 

There is a 5th row of squares hidden up at the top. 

Below is what I used for the backing. I got a Wide back from Backside fabric and used it for two quilts. 

 This photo also show the quilting. 

Thanks for stopping  by. 

I going to share with you some of the reasons I have been neglecting my blog. 

 You can see more of my Cross stitch on IG. I started back to Cross stitching after taking quite a long time off, due to being unable to not see the weave in the fabrics. I have discover that I can use 14 ct adia and do quite well with that plus using an extra pair of glasses, and a good light πŸ˜‚.  I also enjoy finishing the pieces to use around the house of giving as gifts. These are quick and easy with results after a few nights of stitching in front of the TV.  Just like Quilting There are so many Great patterns and so little time.

Thanks for stopping by my friends and until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty hugs and happy stitiching~ Heide
