    Finally it's time to share what I been working on lately.

    These are a few of the projects I've been working on the past few months. First is a quilt for my DGD, the pattern is 'My Sweet Heart Quilt' by Pleasant Valley Creations. I made the mistake of first making her a pillowcase using the white (very directional) fabric which was fine for a pillowcase but when she asked for a quilt to go with it, with that beautiful smile, I knew I was in trouble. Oh well, it seems to have worked and she is excited about her quilt. The quilting was done Bev's Cottage Rose Quilting (Mesa, AZ) and is done in a butterfly and heart motif.

    To go with it I also made a 12 x 16 pillow for her based on a KimberBell pattern that I had seen made up in a LQS.

    In between these projects I also completed an Easter wall hanging from my scraps from the Hoppy Easter pattern from the Little Quilt Company. I like how it turned out but frankly some of the color choices were strictly due to it being scrappy. On this one I didn't care for pattern decorations on the yellow and blue eggs so they were modified to suit my taste. The hardest part of making this one was the intentionally wonky squares in the border; we work so hard to cut and sew straight seams that it really bothered my OCD side.

    In the middle of this I also made a Fold N Stitch Leaf Topper.

    Lastly, a last minute birthday gift for friend. Although you can't see it, there are two potholders......

    I love all your projects, esp. the dream catcher set - where did you find fabric (or is it applique)?

    Thank you for the kind comments. Geevee the dream catcher is actually machine embroidery and the design is from Anita Goodesign, Navajo Quilts collection. I only wish I were talented enough to do that as an appliqué.......

    beautiful work, i love your leaf centerpiece. they are a lot of fun to make.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    All of your work is beautiful. I love the colors in your DGD's quilt and the pillow is awesome. Thank you for sharing.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I think he wonky squares on your Easter runner give it movement. The eggs are "tumbling" so it's great the borders "move" too. Love it!
