Time for some Quilting :)

 I finished up three quilt tops last weekend.  Now it is time for some serious Happy Quilting, well, just as soon as I get the quilt backs made ;)   

Remember these blocks I shared??  I can't wait to get this one quilted.   And the good news is, I already have the tutorial typed up, so once I get this quilted, it will be ready to be posted on the blog.  Yippee for another fun, free, tutorial ;)

And that Twinkle Toes start from my Sew Sampler box, it's now a baby quilt top.   I am so happy with how these two lines blended together. It is just so cute!!  And I am also working on a Christmas Table Runner in this same design, and I have the blocks made and will get the top made super soon ;)

And finally, I shared this Goose Creek Garden fabric back in January.   I have been working on making this into a new Playground Picnic quilt in between working on other projects.  I am just so excited that the quilt top is all done!!!  I will be sharing this finish at the end of the month, so it will be quilted soon as well.  

So yup, I am going to have a very Happy Quilting Weekend for sure ;)   

How about you, what are you working on moving into the weekend??

P.S. Aren't quilt swirls just so fun :)

A Star is Born Remix Update

There is an Update to the A Star is Born Remix Quilt PDF.  Please be sure and adjust accordingly and so sorry for the inconvenience ;)  

So this morning a typo was found in the A Star is Born Remix quilt PDF.   D of Background Fabric should measure 18 1/2" not 8 1/2".  You would have found this out super quick as there is no way an 8 1/2" square would have fit in the center :)  Sorry, I missed typing the 1.   So if you have printed this PDF please change D to 18 1/2" and if you have downloaded, please replace it with this new A Star is Born Remix PDF.  

Also, It should be noted,  You still need to trim your HST's when making this larger version.  HST's are trimmed to 9 1/2".  I assumed that was known, but should have typed it out in the remix pdf.   I have added it into the A Star is Born Remix PDF instructions :)  

The Links in past posts and in the Charming Baby Quilts, All the Quilts, All the Details have been updated with this change as well.   It has also been updated in the Charming Baby Quilts Remix,s PDF that has all 10 Remix's ;)  

And that is all for today ;)  The kids are home from school so we are going to find some fun stuff to keep us busy, but maybe I will squeeze in a little sewing time.

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!

Sew Sampler Box - February

 I was just thrilled when my February Sew Sampler Box arrived.   it has been here a bit, but some people got their box a little later so I didn't want to post it until I knew everyone had theirs ;)  It's always fun to have a surprise of quilting goodness!!!  And talk about goodness . . . it's a rainbow of solid splash colors, so pretty!!!  

I just love this gorgeous Fabric Kit this month.   It has a My Favorite Color is Moda Panel, and the Bella Solids that Fat Quarter Shop  has matched with it are just so pretty!!!  I love this Color Factory quilt pattern as well, but I am debating about maybe fussy cutting up that panel a bit . . . we will see :)   

And this month's notions are so fantastic!!!   I had just been told about these awesome water soluble marking pencils at the last retreat I was at, and here they are in my box.  How great is that!     And isn't that Spool Pin Holder just adorable ;)  It has a magnet in it so the pins just "float" in the top of the spool.   and of course, it is in that wonderful Sew Sampler Aqua color ;)    And ya know, I always love Aurifil!!! 

And of course, there is a new  Greatest Hits Quilt block to go with the box!!!  This is Track 11  pattern and I love how it has a softer look to it.   And that means only 1 more block to go, how fun is that!!!  I can't wait to see this one come together.  Mine is all from scraps without a lot of matched prints, but I think with some fun low volume sashing and maybe so happy cornerstones it will pull together nicely.    

And just a note, if you are wanting to get in on the new year of Sew Sampler boxes you have to get in line.  There is currently a waiting list as the box subscription is full.   But hopefully the wait isn't to long.  (I have been told new spots open up each week!!!)

And that is the February Sew Sampler Box from Fat Quarter Shop :) And I am already looking forward to February's arriving later this month!!!   It's the best day when my little aqua box is in the mail ;)  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day . . . the kids have Mon and Tues off school so I don't know how much quilting I am going to get to with a super long weekend, but it is fun to play with them as well!!!
