A Friday Finish

I belong to the Believe Circle at Do. Good Stitches on Flickr.  

These are the October 2016 blocks finally put together and quilted.









Our group does one quilt a month that we donate to "A Blanket of My Own" who gives handmade quilts to children in foster care.  Click HERE to see other quilts we have donated.

I usually complete 2-3 quilts for the group each year and I'm always looking for donations of backing fabric and batting.  Please contact me if you are interested in donating to 
this worthy cause.

Now....off to the post office!

Peace to all,

Laura

WIP Wednesday

This week I completed week#8 of the Oh My Stars quilt along for the graduation quilt for my niece Sarah.  I'm hoping to get this to the quilter by the end of March.  




Also created another 16 little house blocks for the It Takes a Village Quilt.




Peace to all,

Laura

Sister surprise!

Last May my sister moved to Hawaii.

My. Sister. Moved. To. Hawaii.

I just wanted to share the Ice & Snow Michigan box I sent her for her birthday last week:





Because I KNOW she's missing the cold weather!

I miss her dearly.  Hoping to visit next January.

Peace to all,

Laura

Friday Finish!

Another finish and it's only February!!  

This is my Scrappy Sprouts mini quilt that will hang in my foyer come Spring.




I love all the brightly colored scraps I was able to incorporate into this little quilt.


This is a super easy and fun pattern to piece.



Stay warm, my friends....Spring is right around the corner!



Peace,

Laura

January Bee Blocks

Debora was our host at the Believe Circle at do.good stitches.  She wanted a super simple block:





This was my month at Stash Bee.  Since my blocks were done in December, I decided to crash a couple of other hives.


Katie's block for Hive 5:



Tanyia's block for Hive 9:



My block for Hive 7.  The blocks have been rolling in and are awesomely beautiful!  I'm looking forward to putting this modern quilt together:




My tutorial for this can be found HERE.

50 Shades of Red

I'm in this cute little group on flickr called Mini QT Swap.
We swap miniature quilts.
It's way too much fun.




This is the little mini I created for my secret partner in red and white.

I.  love.  it.

I posted it yesterday.  My partner should receive by the weekend.

I'm going to miss this mini quilt!

Peace,
Laura
