Spring, where are you?

I mean seriously...where is the sun?  I am so tired of being cold I cannot even talk about it.  So, I've been working on Spring swap quilts!!!!  

This one is paper pieced with my own added little creature :-)  I almost couldn't send this one in the mail.  It made me smile the whole time I was making it.  Hopefully is makes its new owner smile as well!

This one was also a paper pieced quiltie made for a Flickr swap.  I was able to use only scraps for this one.  The white and flower fabrics were left over from my Bushfire Quilt squares, the batting was from my mom's Valentine's Day quilt, and the backing was a piece I received in a scrap swap!  So, I would call this a" Green" quiltie :-)

I'm still working on my charity quilt for school, and one for our  bed :-)  The one that I made in the 9th grade  is not quite cutting it anymore.  

I have fallen in love with the RJR farmers Market line.  I have plans to make a star quilt with a different fruit or veggie for each star.  We'll see how it goes.

This week will be spent mostly working on the Amy Butler Weekender Bag for the We The People swap due March 7th...yeah, it's the whole " works best under pressure" thing again.

Hopefully I'll have some photos to post later this week.  Until then, Peace be with you.


  1. I LOVE that whirligig/pinwheel quiltie, it is gorgeous! So bright and happy looking. :-)

  4. Hi. Thank you for the beautiful FQ that you sent for the swap. They are gorgeous! I love the little mushrooms!

  5. Oops, I mean trees! I LOVE the trees! I lost my brain for a second there. Ahh....and it is only Tuesdsay....

  6. So impressed, paper piecing scares me! But yours are gorgeous! (Visiting from Spring Swap)

  7. Pretty! I wish I could do paper piecing, but I'm a hand sewer, so lots of cutting off knots, etc. would ensue. I'm a fabric junkie too!!! For sure.
