Welcome to my Quilting blog. I love quilt, love quilting but got bored with traditional quilting. My solution was to try new technique and inspiration. Follow me in my journey of discovery who is my inner artist.

This week and next week I have the pleasure of having my surrogate daughters with me so my sewing time will be restricted but it is for the best reason.(long story short, I was a surrogate mother for a gay couple and gave birth to 2 girls, Sara 14 (top picture)and Kiko 9 Bottom picture left. right is Leandre my own daughter)
In the last few days I was able to finish my fractured image apple and will add it to my pear and maybe also add a leaf.
And finally my bigger project will be the baby elephant. Here is part of the process :) I have no idea how many piece this baby will have but I can guess....many.
As you can see The pink flamingo has a head :) This big boy will have a finish size of 23" x 38" tall and has 156 pieces and 21 different fabrics. I am not sure about the fabrics I chose but I try not to judge until the piece is finished and I see the whole image. Then I can see if it work or not.
I also was able to finish this modern top. I wanted to try my new Sizzix machine and also I needed a top to practice my quilting. HST are still the bane of my existence but it is a lot more fun to cut now.
Also I need your suggestions, what animals or objects do you think I should make for my fractured image technique?
But not real pets sadly. I used to be a foster family for cats and in 2 years I was able to take care and adopt 10 cats but then I fell in love with my soulmate. Said soulmate is highly allergic to pretty much everything so no more pets.
Here are a few real and quilty pets :)
Cat at window :)
Laurianne on Fall Quilt. She was my chief Quilt inspector
This is Charlie, he is FIV+ but he is a sweetheart
This is Roger. That cat had such a great personality and got into everything. Here he is helping me
One of the many little panther with a huge personality Valentine
This little one was born at home
Federico....such a sweet kitty that love to cuddle
Ash just spent 1 week at home before getting adopted
Turtles can be pets :)
So do bunnies
Quilty kitty :)
Ok ok wolf are not really pets but he sure is my animal spirit :)
Finally sewed the binding on my Cat Quilt. He look like an happy fellow.
I also worked on the butterfly wings but stopped half way because I do not have enough Timeless treasures Orange Ombre fabrics. I might order more. Not sure yet.
Good news, the Wolfgang pattern is available for sell at my store.
This week it is the start of my hunting season.....no I have no intention of killing any living being. I am humanly trapping the feral cats living near my apartment to sterilize them for the Trap-neuter-release program. This big boy won't be hard to catch.....he come home to eat every night at 5pm!!!
The goal is to get the babies that could be adopted and control the cat population. I see a lot of me sitting in a corner waiting for the kitty to go eat the sardines in the next 2 weeks.
Oh and this week I quilted this Tettris quilt for a friend!!! I pretty much didn't give her a choice poor Amanda. I really needed to practice my free motion quilting on my Q'nique and had nothing. I did a square meander thingy on the black part of her quilt and she did the part in color. I will try to get a finished picture from her :) The problem working with black is that the batting made the top look as if white kittens exploded on it.
