Sampler quilt progress

Hi everyone, 

I managed to get two borders on my Sampler quilt the last few days. 
There are a lot of pieces. But I love the look of it. 
I'm working on the side borders now too. It's going to be a nice twin size quilt when it's done. I can't wait to have it finished. 
I have so many projects and other things going on right now. I've been busy.  
I decided not to do two versions for our guild BOM. It's just too much. I think this pattern is very nice and will do the trick. I'm excited to have made that decision. I know that it's the right one.

Napanee Heritage Quilt Show

Hi everyone, 

On Saturday, I attended the Napanee Heritage Quilt Guild Show with my daughter. 
We had a great time! 
I took a few photos. I wish I had taken more. But you know how it is, I get distracted by all the beautiful quilts and forget to take a picture. Lol!

My favourite quilt of the show was this 365 Challenge Quilt. 
 
The piecing was amazing and the quilting was perfect. It was not overly quilted. Which I loved. 


I loved this fancy forest quilt. It was adorable!!


This Cosmos quilt was beautiful and so well quilted!!

This wall hanging was gorgeous!! I really loved it! It's called the Dance of the Dragonflies. 

The next few quilts are scrappy quilts that were in the community quilts section. This group makes donation quilts for various organizations!! I really loved these. 

The squares in this quilt top are 2.5 inches. Crazy awesome string quilt. 
Hope you like the photos I shared!

My Canada's Big Bee quilt is done

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well! 
I worked a lot last week. 
I was off work yesterday and managed to finish this donation quilt. 
I quilted it with a simple meander. The binding is scrappy. 
The backing came from my old stash. It's a super soft robot print. Perfect for a little boy. 
I really loved making this quilt. It's going to a Ronald McDonald House for a child who is going through treatment at one of the Sick Kids Hospital in Canada. 

I think this is such a worthy cause. I've had two family members use these services. So it's very close to my heart. I hope the child that receives this quilt loves it.

A Blackbird Gathering, a finished quilt

I finally finished this quilt. 
I free motion quilted it with my Janome 1600p-db. It worked like a charm. I also made a matching mini table topper quilt with the leftover strips. It's super cute. 
Here they are together!
I'm glad to have this off my list of UFO's.

Again, this was all made from cotton and wool from my stash. Yeah!!!
 I hope you like it!!
