This just in...

Another project finished!  This is for my nephew and his lovely bride-to-be.  He is an argyle type of guy so I designed this rag quilt for them.  Shhh!  Don't tell! 
I used the Marcus Primo Plaids and some of Moda's plaids.  So snuggly!

Oh Happy Day!!!

 The bolts of "Primitive Snowmen" fabrics arrived and I was able to finish the table runner and the candle mat. 
 I LOVE this fabric line.
  So classic.

 I used 3 charm packs and the border/binding/backing fabrics to make the runner and the candle mat.  I have lots of charms left.  And lots of ideas as to how to use them!
Now if I only had more time...
 And this is a new Charm Square "Quilt as You Go" pattern from Cotton Way.  The pattern is for a table topper but I decided on a runner instead.  So now I have a new Summer Runner and a new Winter Runner!
Now I really have to focus on the Sweet Meadow Farms Chickens and Roosters.  Unless the UPS man brings something else to distract me.

Happy Spring!

Fig Tree Quilts

And here is my first mini quilt using Moda's 2 1/2" mini charm squares. 
 It was so much fun!  This group is

This is my 2013 Shop Hop Block.  I am planning to use it for a tote bag pocket.  Now I just need to find 
the perfect tote pattern!

And these are the charms from Sandy Gervais' new line "Posh Pumpkins"  Spring is finally here and the fall fabrics are arriving!  I will never ever catch up!
