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 



Whoop- Whoop.

Happy New Year- The best of 2020

 Hello my quilty friends and wishing you all a very Happy New Year. Meadow Mist Designs is sponsoring the best of 2020. 

Here is my top 3 posts with the most views. 

#1 Scrappy cross roads. 

This lovely quilt used up some of my scrappy stash. The pattern is by Lori Holt you can find it here. I love how this  quilt turned out and I gifted it to a dear friend that lost her husband. 

#2 Hocus Pocus 

 This post got a lot of visits due to the giveaway that I was having..  I am super happy with my decision to go with the teal pumpkins instead of gray pumpkins.


#3Red white and blue stars

 This Beautiful quilt was donated to Hands to help. I have joined in the last 5 years with H2H and I love donating a beautiful quilt.
The backing is super fun on this quilt! 

My top 3 favorite quilts that I made. 

#1 Red, white, and Blue floral.  

This is one of my favorite quilts. It still blows me away that this was from Lori Holts Vintage Christmas book. 

#2 Two fabric Bargello. 

 I just love this quilt! I only used two different fabrics to get the effect. I think I found a place to hang it in my house. So I am super excited about that. 

#3 Cathedral Stars. 

Ok, I saved the best for last. I really love this quilt. As soon as  saw it on Jordan Fabrics I dropped everything and made it. 

So that is all folks. A few of my favorite quilt of 2020. I sure had a lot of quilting time in 2020 but, happy to see what 2021 has in store. 

Happy New year my friends! 

Linkys- Meadow Mist design best of 2020.

Christmas quilt 2020.


Hello my Quilty friends! Happy Holidays. I have a fun quilt for you today. This is a quilt I started last year in a Farm Girl vintage sew along group. We would meet monthly at a shop and sew for the day. I did not want to make the normal Farm girl quilt, I picked one block and made it over and over. 
Here is an up close of one of the blocks. I used Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage Christmas.  This block is called Holly and Ivy. These photos do not do this quilt justice. The fabrics are just gorgeous

You can see some of the beautiful fabrics in this photo.

This was a selfish sew, I am using the quilt as I type up this post. I have to say, I think it would of been good with just 9 blocks. Just enough to get nice and cozy while watching movies or reading a good book. 

I used a fun evergreen minky for the back and it has this fun sparkle to it. 

One last peek before I go. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and here's to a much better New Year for all of us! Until I see you again, Wishing you Quilty Hugs~Heide
