The lady top done

I am really happy with this piece. This is a scrappy art quilt, no new fabric at all for her, all from my stash and my scraps bin. I had her in my mind for a long time and I am happy I got around to make her. I saw that stained glass free pattern on Pinterest, she can be found here
I modified her to suite my taste and easier to appliqué. For the longest time, I imagined her in front of the window but I made a few background and it was just not working. The wisterias idea came of nowhere and I knew it was what I needed.

She was my November goal at "a year of lovely finish" so I am happy to be done for the top. Next step is thread painting and quilting.

Lady at bath has a background

Nothing fancy for now but after changing my mind at least 5 times I think I have a workable idea.

Summer Sun is ready to shine

The Summer Sun quilt is finally done. I started this quilt in the middle of a cold and grey spring where everything was colourless outside. I needed bold colours and picked the orange fabric in my stash....don't ask me what it was doing there, I hate orange but this quilt made me love it. The grey, white and beige borders frame nicely the blocks. For quilting I used what I learned in the "dot to dot quilting " Crafty class with Angela Walters. Love this class and it was perfect for this quilt.

Now I can cross one thing on my to do list

- Lady at bath......working on different backgrounds but can't find what I want yet.....
- mystahhhhhry quilt. Didn't start clue 9 yet.
-  Fall colours ....still ripping the pebbles I FMQ on is taking forever!!!
- The dancer. Didn't touched her this week
- Summer Sun done.
- Cat at twilight, same as last week ;)

Working on my to do list

I am slowly but surely going forward with my UFOS list. Tonight I am hand stitching blanket stitch to appliqué my flowers on my Summer sun quilt.
My first time I must say and quite pleased with how they came out. Now excuse me I have a million stichs to do ;)

Mystahhhhhry along with hillbilies #4

Slowly but surely growing.

I also started this one. I had an image of grey and lime green together and I had to do it. I have no idea where this idea came, I didn't even have that green in my stash.

To do list for November and December

I have the attention span of a 3 years old and get bored easily. Add that with too many awesome ideas and you get a list of half done projects.

-Lady at fact it is my November goal for AYOLF

-Mystahhhhry Quilt, my goal is to follow along. Clue 7 was just released last night

-Fall colors. Undo all the free motion stiching I did on it and start over.

-The dancer. Add last border and start quilting.

-Summer Sun. Appliqué the flowers

-Cat at Twilight. Finish the quilting the texture for the window and bind

 Wish me luck ( I will need it)
