Friday Finishes

Celebrating 5 years of blogging, 250th post and 20 page views short of 60,000!
Thank you to all my readers, faithful long timers and newbies!

I have been wanting to share this finish with you since April when I finished the top at retreat.


Bella Luna is a kit I bought at Satin Moon in Victoria a few years ago, I had it all cut out and then got bogged down by all the work of the curves. Once I picked it back up, figured out the recipient, it was full steam ahead, I had a deadline now.



My wonderful friend Carole did an amazing job of quilting it, this Elder Moon is a scaled down version of a print I have by Roy Henry Vicars.




The recipient was quite surprised,


and moved to tears, as I predicted she would be.


This is my sister, Theresa, really happy she had a big birthday this year!!


I know I have shown this one before, but it is now in the hands of the newlyweds, awaiting some cooler weather so they can snuggle under it.


What's Up?
A free pattern from somewhere I can't remember!!

This was just finished this week and as soon as I can find a box it is on it's way to Utah for a new great-nephew, whose birth is any minute now!!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts

Have a great weekend!

Life Happens.......

Sometimes when life happens, blogging does not, but here I am back in the saddle and sewing room, ready for fall. 

Not much quilting happened this summer but I have been knitting......a lot.
It is all Christmas knitting so this is the only thing I can show you. It is for a 5 year who doesn't read my blog so I am sure I am safe! LOL




The colour is true in this shot

My sewing room just became a dumping ground over the summer but last week I managed to dig it out and get to some projects that were in pieces


A really old UFO, Quilt Diva , she is now all fused and sandwiched and ready to quilt.


This loon is part of our Boreal forest guild project to be donated and hung in the children's section at our public library. This is not an original design but it is from another old UFO that I can't find a link to. The mottled camo looking fabric is the one provided for everyone to use a bit of in their projects. Best get on this as it is to hang in our show first, end of next month!


I picked this Homecoming kit up while travelling earlier this spring. I love it and want it to hang in our show also, but it may not happen until next year! 


I made a few slab blocks last year and a few more earlier this year, but seeing as it is Canada's 150th next year I was compelled to make some of these blocks up..........am I approaching a theme here??
It is a great way to use up some scraps.
The slab tutorial and the pattern are both from Cheryl Arkinson and Sunday Morning quilts.
I hope to be back on Friday with some completed projects!

Hey Liz, this blog's for you!
