Learning Something New to Me!

Needing to get a finish for February! I think these will  be the perfect project to get started! I am quite looking forward to piecing together a Dresden. I hope to get enough done for a full quilt. Wish me much sewing success!

January Finish

Linking up with Patty at Elm Street Quilts for a quick January OMG finish.

The baby changing pads and burp cloths are complete. I believe there is a great need for many more!

On a side note, I am moving back into my home after working in another state for four years! Exhausting is the least I can say about it. Although!!! I am back  in my home and I am blessed to visit our local charity sewing group each week. We sew for community fire victims and the Ronald McDonald House.
Of course there is "sew and tell". This week Ms. Macel brought in a Dresden Quilt her grandmother made. It was unique and so lovely!

Christmas Memories by Cranston Print Works


The Christmas Memories Panel was designed to be a fabric book of mini poems celebrating Christmas.



The poems really speak for themselves. I need not add words. Although, I do want to add fabrics to create a loving Christmas Treasure Quilt to read each year with my wee-ones. 

I've trimmed all of the books panels at 9 1/2" x 13" rectangles and gathering ides how to piece them together. Possibly 2 1/2" scrappy red and white squares? What are your ideas?

In the meantime, enjoy the memories! 

And be sure to visit Jennifer at The Inquiring Quilter and Link up your progress and finishing at her Wednesday Wait Loss.

The Last Supper by Cranton Print Works Co.


I found this 36" x  44" inch panel by Cranton Print Works Company in one of my "Juntiquing" adventures and knew I just had to own it.  . . . Well, actually..... I found three and purchased them all for $2.95 for one with some mix-match remnants and  2.95 for both of the other two. Great score!

The first one I am quilting just as the panel itself for a prayer blanket/ snuggle blanket for my sweet mother-in-law. She was the very reason I Had to have these!

It will be quilted with straight lined quilting and I am using a soft polka-dot snuggle flannel for the backing and a lovely blue polka dot binding from QuiltBlocks of Fabric Editions, Inc.

You can find many more panels Cranton's Choice Fabrics and learn more about the employee owned company here.
