Kim received her quilt and she sent me the most delicious box of Sherrie's Berries (chocolate covered strawberries)! Mmmm.......
I've been having a lot of fun working on my "art" quilt! I can hardly wait to share pictures :)
I've off to my Sue Spargo class - I'm sure I'll have a lot of pictures to post next week! Have a great one!

Pictured here are the third blocks from the "My Girlfriend's block of the month". Two more dolls! This is a mystery quilt and I'm really wondering what it's going to turn out like! It's nice having all of the pieces arrive all cut out by the AccuQuilt Go and ready to sew!
A couple of weeks ago we took a hike up to this frozen waterfall with our son. It was SO pretty! It's been so warm lately though I wonder if it's still frozen?
First day of Spring is tomorrow! Have a great day!

And Marie showed this beautiful quilt made from the nature panels she received.
I am being challenged creatively right now by making my daughter's art quilt! I'm having fun though! Yesterday I spent a lot of time picking out fabric and coming up with a plan and last night I began the hand appliqué! The real fun is going to come with the embellishing :)
Have a fun day and do something to celebrate our love of quilting!!

I finished my Sue Spargo needle case (my friend Michelle gave me the pattern and needles ages ago!) and now I am super excited about taking her class next weekend!
I'm showing my work up close here but don't judge too harshly as this is the first time I've made some of these stitches.
The pattern called for certain types of stitches for the circles on the back, then I could get creative with the front. My two favorite circles on the front are the yellow and dark green, including some bullion loops, fly stitch, French knots, coral knot stitch, trellis stitch and pistol stitch!
After going a little crazy on the front, I went back and added some more stitches to the back circles, including the Drizzle stitch and the seed stitch.
This little project was so much fun! I've been collecting threads and embellishments and different types of fabric for the class. I'm anticipating learning a LOT! I'll share pictures!
