I have 4 new finished quilts to show you...I know I keep telling you.  They're piling up.  But I have one more that I'm trying to finish up before we leave in 53 days!

It's my Bejeweled quilt from the pattern that I wrote, which is for sale here.

I'm trying something new, which I've never been great at: straight line quilting.  I'm using blue painter's tape as a guide, because I started to mark the quilt and decided I'd rather have lines that aren't perfect than waste my time.

It's coming along, but my biggest WIP is packing. 


There's my stash.  In box number 9.  It's packed and ready to fly, or float, however we decide to ship.  I still have batting and my machine and odds and ends and scraps to pack, so if you want to add any scraps to that, I'll give you my address! I've learned that one of my favorite types of projects is scraps.

Hope you are having a lovely Wednesday and here's to finishing up one more quilt before I'm out of here!

A Pillow for my Sis

I have soooo much done.  Made 2 more quilts for my other 2 nieces, finished my huge Swoon quilt, made a memory quilt out of baby clothes, and I'm working on quilting my Bejeweled quilt.
But only a few have been photographed and I've had no time to blog lately.

My house is getting full of boxes, which means a lot of sorting and trashing and garage sales and my heart is full and excited and overwhelmed and I can't believe we're leaving in 63 days and I'm rambling....

Ok, so today I'll show you the pillow I made for my sister, who needs some color on her new gray couch that I love.

A new pillow for my sis. I added a few stitches on the grey crosses.

Olive it. And if she doesn't want it I'll take it. But I think she'll want it. It's all her colors, which are my colors. So I may make a sister pillow to stay at my house in LONDON! Because I'm moving there in 63 days, did I tell ya?

Back to the pillow. I added a few hand stitches in the gray crosses. And the back has a little design element to it. It's an envelope closure for easy washing and I hope she loves it! A new pillow for my sis. I added a few stitches on the grey crosses.

Thank you to Quilt Story for featuring Brooke's quilt today! Talk soon...
