Just off the frame....

These little foxes were so much fun to quilt. My customer's last name is Fox so I'm sure it will be cherished for some time. I think she plans on hanging it in their home.
I forgot to ask...but I think this is an Elizabeth Hartman pattern??
I had fun using this little fox pantograph I found in my collection and 
the variegated thread blended perfectly with the quilt's colors.
Summer is fast approaching...which means I'll have more time to quilt.
I wanted to remind everyone that:

A Little Sunday Stitching...

My husband unknowingly snapped this picture of Jackson 
and I enjoying the warm, morning sunshine that greeted us today.

I continue to enjoy picking up my Anni Downs BOM and 
getting in a little stitching each week. I need to check, 
but I think I only have two blocks left to stitch in this series.
Then, I'm getting antsy to start a new applique quilt for summer.
I've been looking at Cheri Payne's collection of primitive patterns.
I'm loving her Baskets of Plenty and Country of Seasons patterns. 
Both would fit the decor of our home perfectly.
Please do share if you've ever made any of her patterns and if you have a favorite.

A New Quilt Cabinet!

Just a little something new I treated myself to as I began to 
find quilts stacked in piles around the house.
I am loving it.
Curious...How do you store your quilts?

This week's theme is: "Pillowcases"


A few years ago I went to a quilting retreat and though I felt like I was the last one in the world of sewing to learn this quick and easy method to make a pillowcase....

...I  quickly became the instructor's favorite participant with my bout of enthusiasm as I learned the "Burrito Method"  to make a pillowcase!

If you've tried it, you know what I'm talking about.
Serious! I felt like "the" pillowcase magician!

Rainy Day Sewing

It's been that kind of weekend where the lamps remain lit all day long. Pouring rain throughout the day and night. As I wake this morning, the sky continues to be a sheet of grey with dark, rain clouds billowing on the horizons. The birds chirp and flutter about as they enjoy moment of reprieve.

April showers, right? 

My favorite kind of sew day.
Especially when one has bright happy fabrics to play with! 
Wishing you a wonderful day.

Quilted Postcard Swap/Blog Hop

Last month I posted the quilted postcard I sent from Oregon to Indiana...
I created this one for my Kris who blogs at Krislovesfabric. Her prompt was: MAKE.
My postcard note said: "Kris you make very beautiful gifts and I'm sure they bring sunshine to many hearts."

and  the one that traveled through the mail from Michigan to Oregon to little ol' me! 
This one was created for me  by Sunshine'sAddiction using my prompt: HAPPY.
She illustrated that happy transition many us feel as Winter finally turns into Spring.
Well today we are having a Postcard Blog Hop of many of us who participated in the swap.
Here's a list of today's Blog Hop participants to check out. ENJOY!

H2H: Spring Flower Finish for Little Lambs

  I finished this little backpack quilt measuring 36"x42" using the left-overs from my 2014-15 Sat. Sampler quilt. I had the panel that goes with this line of Deb Strain's Bloomin' Fresh fabrics so I just squared them up and alternated them with polka-dotted blocks. I'm hoping this quilty hug finds its way to a preteen/teen in need through the Little Lambs Foundation for Kids.

I think my flowered backing and Daisy on a String Pantograph finished this one off nicely.

 Jackson loves it. 

 Spring is sure slow coming this year, but it's nice to see the Plum trees finally blooming and the grass getting green with all the rainy days we have been having.
So this is my fourth stash-busting finish this year and the first of two charity quilts that I'm creating as part of Sara's H2H Charity Drive. Oh! and come to think of it, I'm half way to my April OMG goal. Sweet! I have to admit it feels good to have such productive time in my sewing studio this year. 
As always, thanks for stopping by.

H2H: An Extra Blanket for Little Lambs

My mom is one of my most faithful followers (thanks Mom!) and when she read about our H2H Charity Drive she asked if she could donate this knitted blanket: 
Do you like the Tulip Quilt the blanket is on? Click HERE to check it out! 
Like us quilters, she likes to experiment and "play" with different skeins of yarn. This skein she tried turned right into the above pattern. She had fun trying something new and wanted to see the blanket go to good use, so I immediately emailed her the information for the Little Lambs Foundation for Kids. It operates out of Utah and provides comfort kits for children ages newborn to 17 years old who are transitioning into foster care, emergency shelter or who have been hospitalized. Her blanket measures 36"x 36" so would be the perfect donation for a little one's kit don't ya think!? 
I love and am grateful that my mom and I support each other's love of knitting and quilting.
Thanks for joining me Mom as we both send warm hugs to kiddos in need.

This week's theme is: "PAPER PIECING"


It's been three years since we've "visited" paper piecing here at Tuesday Archives.
And not being one to paper piece...I'm always interested in your links.
Here's one by Janine Marie who blogs at Quilts from the Little House.
She made this one four years ago using these adorable zoo animal patterns she found in Quilter's Ark by Margaret Rolfe. She made 29 animal blocks then designed one of her own based on the zoo sign located at the entrance of a nearby Zoologic Park. Chick HERE to read Janine Marie's entire post.
