Dino mini

Here is the finished Dino mini for the birthday swap I was in.  I really wanted to do the T-rex in dino fabric, but I like how these colors turned out.

This was a paper pieced pattern.  But I got it on craftsy, and since they have had all their issues, I cannot link to it.

Dog Quilt finished

Here is the quilt, quilted and bound!

Here is one of my friends puppys' on it!

And here is the back.  I LOVED the back fabric, but didn't have enough to finish the whole thing, so I added some red :) And you can see the label I added at the bottom.

Kitties quilting

I have been having a lot of help quilting lately! Here is Minnie keeping the chair warm.

Earl usually lays in the box near the window (which I have a towel in for the kitties).  the other day he was going crazy trying to get all the leaves blowing around.

Mochi isn't not much help, sitting right where I need to work!

And here are all three! Not doing much to help ;)

Dog Quilt quilting

Here is the final quilt all laid out! Minnie is inspecting it to make sure I have it all smoothed out, so there weren't any wrinkles!

(I made this one before my long arm, which is why I laid it out to pin it)

Birthday swap February

I made this quick tote bag with no pattern.

I found a pixelated groot online and thought it would make a cute mini, although it's quite a bit bigger than a mini ;)

Dog Quilt - design wall

I am sure I sound like a broken record when I talk about my design wall.  But I just love it so much!  We have lived in our house almost 3 years now, and I still love my design wall (and don't know how I lived without it!

This quilt is all dog fabric.  It's for my birthday swap I did (three years ago! I know!) I was having a hard time trying to decide what I was going to make, and then I thought, she has dogs, why not use some of this dog fabric I have, and make her a quilt!

I used a variety of fabrics, so it was hard to make a set design, but I tried to space out the lights and the darks.

Round Robin 2016 cont

I had joined a round robin in 2016 & 2017.

Here is my finished quilt top! I added the purple and neutral 2.5" squares to make it a little bigger.

I realized I have a new problem now with having a long arm and wanting to finish quilts, I don't generally buy yardage!  So I went digging through my flannel stash, but didn't see anything that I thought would work.  Then I found this Eiffel tower fabric (which happens to be the same fabric I used in the first block.

I decided to add the purple and neutral blocks to the back to make sure it was big enough.  This will be the first thing I quilt on my long arm!!

Long arm video

I couldn't wait to play with my new machine! I put some random pieces of flannel on it, and went to town.

I will need some practice with it since I don't have a stitch regulator.

Rail fence update

I am about half way done with the top! I am glad I have my design wall to put it up! I made a few mistakes that I was able to see by having it up here!
