Butterfly quilt and silk scarves

Another UFO is getting done. I am quilting this butterfly design in order to show it at Quebec Quilt at the end of May.

I made this butterfly using Timeless Treasures Ombre fabrics but it can be done using any colors. I think it would be a great scrap buster too but I do not have the time to do it yet.

I also had a bit of fun dying some silk scarves. It is always fun to play with water marbling and dyes. You never know what you will get and silk is amazing to work with.

I just finished a UFO that I started last fall. I made the pumpkin pattern but was unsure how to finish it. Since finished is better than perfect I just appliqued it on a fat quarter and quilted it. There is a few UFO'S I need to finish before Quebec Quilt at the end of May.

Water marbled Peacock

Peacock on hand water marbled fabric
18" x 22"
Appliqué and beading

This piece was really what I call a squirrel. (Have to stop everything and do it now project) I have a few water marbled fat quarters with aqua, green and dark blue. The more I looked at those, the more I was sure that those fat quater wanted to be a peacock. The movement of paint reminded me of feathers and the piece was screaming at me to be made. No I don't hear voices lol (Not THAT crazy)

 You know what I mean, that impression that you know the perfect project for THAT fabric.

This piece came together seamlessly (pun not intended) I knew exactly what I wanted to do and how to do it. What perfect quilting was needed. It is a wonderful feeling that I wish I would have more often.

Finished and gifted

What fun is it to have almost instant gratification :)

Aqua and yellow baby quilt done and gifted and it will be perfect for baby boy's room. As usual I used polyester batting because it is easier to wash and dry....a must for baby quilts.

Now enough procrastination....I have to start getting ready for Quebec Quilt at the end of may.

Baby Quilt!!!!

Who can resist making a quilt baby quilt? I sure can't but I rarely have the occasion to do so.
One of my co-worker are waiting for their 3rd boy so I jumped on the occasion :)

Her and her wife told me they are painting the baby's room  Aqua! I have a ton of fabrics perfect in my stash and found squares already cut that were perfect.

I started quilting it last night but busted my last needle. Darn!

So this is a "Almost finished" Friday edition :)
