Summer sun quilt UFO

Another UFO that need to be finished. I started "Summer sun" in the middle of the very cold winter of 2014-2015. I really needed colors in my life when everything was shades of grey outside so I took the brightest of orange in my stash and did this quilt. I just need to sew the flowers and it is done.
This quilt has been kitty approuved by Rocky and Willow, my foster kitties....they have since been adopted together.

Mystahhhhhry along with Hillbilly #3

I barely had time to sit at my sewing machine this week. At the beguining of the month I scored a "free classes all month" pass on Craftsy so I have been viewing as many class as possible and learned loads of new techniques.
I am also doing this mystahhhhhhhry english paper piecing quilt and it is taking a lot of time to do every evening. I finished my Sky bound quilt (pictures to come) and still working at quilting the "cat at twilight" quilt.

Japanese Temari balls

I have been facinated by those lately. Can't help but wonder how I can try to reproduce the same  3D effects on fabric.

Sky bound "almost" finished

Good friday everyone.
You see that bottom right corner......this is where i ran out of tread. It is pretty much the story of my life. For every quilt I have to run to the store because I ran out LOL. Since I really wanted to have a finish today, I decided to just bind the quilt and finish today after going to the fabric store.

Have a great weekend!!!!!

Update Done!!!

Fall UFO

Finished my fall UFO...well finished, am I ever finished without adding appliqué that tell a story? For this one I will add some fall leafs I think. I will do some fabric painting because I do not have the perfect fabric to make fall leafs. As usual, my dear kitty is testing it :)

On another news, "sky bound" is amost finished quilting. I love this motif, I cant help but pet it :) It is perfect as it look like wind and clouds

Friday finish .......or maybe not

This is what I have done with "the Dancer" quilt....and it feel unfinished. I will add another border and I am toying with adding flowers appliqué in in the corners. And once it is quilted I will add a 3D tulle tutu :) I now have a good idea how to do it.
I love the grey and pink combo.

p.s. Oh nooooo, just noticed the mistake LOL Well me and my trusted seam reaper will have some quality time :-P

If it can help

I have a friend, well it is an internet friend, we never met but we have known each other's for more than 10 years. She married an american and even had a darling little girl together. They were trying to come back to Canada and it has been hell. They finally had the good news that my friend's husband can come to Canada after 2 years!!! They needed help for this final part of the road so I told her I would donate a quilt and austion it !!! We were able to get 125$ for it so I am very happy that my "Fairy Garden" quilt found a home and it will help reunite a family.

When do we call ourselves designers?

I finally published a few patterns on Craftsy. If you are interested in my Black and White vortex quilt or my mermaid wall hanger, I cut the price in half until the end of the month. Thank you
