It's the final round for the Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail. Round 6 was chosen by Kathleen @ Kathleen McMusing -- letters and/or numbers. I added a 4-inch finished Kona Torch border, with Nightfall cornerstones.  I decided to take creative license, and my "letters" will be quilted into the border. I still have a wavy border, which made the top end up being 57.5 inches.  I gained 1.5 inches from the designed 56-inch quilt but managed to steam/quilt it flat. I had a quilting plan for the centre of the quilt, but didn't know ..read more

There are are only two more challenges for Season 15 of Project Quilting -- hosted by Kim @ Persimon Dreams and Trish @ Quilt Chicken. The fourth theme was:  Hourglass.  I used some Kona scraps to make 6-inch mug rugs, which will be used as plant coasters.  It looks like both of my orchids are going to bloom again very soon. This was another opportunity to practice free-motion quilting.  The stitches are not perfect, but the plants won't mind.  ..read more

There's just one more week for the Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR) hosted by Gail @ Quilting Gail. Round 5 was chosen by Gail @ Quilting Gail -- quilter's choice using 4.  The possibilities are endless - - 4 blocks, a 4-patch block, 4 colours. I added a 4-inch finished Kona Nightfall border. This is now measures 49.5 inches. I realized on the last round that my border was a bit wavy despite my efforts to carefully measure to ensure I was adding the right length of border.  I took extra time for this round as well, but I still ended up with a wavy border ..read more

I made two zippered pouches this week.  I love the Open Wide Zippered Pouch pattern by Noodlehead.  I used a mini charm pack from Ruby Star Society to piece the exterior. I made the yellow pouch for last week's Project Quilting. My nieces are visiting this weekend so I decided to make a second pouch to give as gifts. Now time to get a good night's sleep because we will be sledding tomorrow.  They have too much non-stop energy for this Auntie. I'm linking up with: Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday @ Quilting Gail Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? @ Confessions ..read more

Are you sewing along with Jen @ Patterns by Jen for her annual Monthly Colour Challenge?  If you didn't sign up to receive the blocks by e-mail, you can download February's block here. February's colour is orange.  My favourite colour!!  ♥  I used Kona Tangerine and Torch. The first step is sewing a strip set.  I always press my seams open when sewing strip sets as I find I get better subcuts when the fabrics are nice and flat.  Premium Quilting and Crafting Spray is a new-to-me product that I love as it removes wrinkles; flattens seams; red ..read more

I'm cutting it close to the deadline for Project Quilting -- hosted by Kim @ Persimon Dreams and Trish @ Quilt Chicken.
