It is time for another Sharing quilt projects post and this one is #20. Whenever you make something using one of my tutorials or patterns I would love to see a photo of it and then share it with others. This is always so inspiring!
Can you believe it is almost the end of February? The sun is out and hopefully, some more of the snow will melt.
My Quilt Projects
It seems like there hasn’t been much quilting going on this week but I have plenty of things to work on.
I mentioned before that I was going through boxes of unfinished quilts and blocks. Well I decided to hang up the quilt tops that are ready to be quilted. I have them in the guest room closest downstairs and hopefully seeing them in there will motivate me to finish them.
I forgot all about this purple batik Scattered quilt top that I pieced. This is on my list to get it quilted. I think I have made the Scattered quilt at least 8 times.
Last night my granddaughters were over and we took a new photo of us together. Today I’m going to get my haircut. Not sure what I’ll have done, maybe just a few inches taken off right now but I doubt if I’ll ever have my hair this long again. I’m thinking it is time to go short again.
Quilt Projects Shared With Me
It is always so much fun to see all of the beautiful quilt projects that you are making! f I didn’t show yours, I am so sorry and will try and get them in my next sharing post.
Hidden Wells Table Runner
Phyllis shared this beautiful table runner that she made using the Hidden Wells quilt block tutorial.
Karen shared her beautiful quilt made with my Scrappy Butterfly Baby Quilt tutorial. This continues to be a favorite tutorial on my site.
Rainbow Table Topper
Janet shared her table topper that reminds me of the Rainbow Table Topper tutorial that I have. I really like the fabrics she used in hers.
Maple Star Quilt Block
Karen shared an 18-inch Maple Star block after using my Maple Star quilt block tutorial. The rest of the blocks in her quilt are 12-inch blocks and this will go in the center. I can’t wait to see her quilt!
Vicki made a couple of little sleeping bags using the Easy Doll Sleeping Bag tutorial. These are so cute and make great little gifts. You can pick up a little stuffed animal from the Dollar store for a gift any little one would love.
Dark Blue Rail Fence
Miriam made another table runner using the Dark Blue Rail Fence tutorial and said she has a group of pastel batiks for the next one she’ll make! How fun!
Terri shared a photo of her fabric baskets made with my Fabric Baskets tutorial. Here is what she said “I have been using them for my table to hold our napkins. I also hate wasting anything, so today–turned the corner triangles into a coaster to match. Some of them are not that square, but they get the job done and there was no waste from the project. Thanks again for sharing your projects on your blog.”
I don’t know about you, but I love animals and it is always so neat to see photos of them!
Ellen shared this sweet photo of her dog Honey scampering around in the snow.
Darlene rescued this sweet little kitten that showed up on her deck, she already has a cat that doesn’t like other cats so she couldn’t keep it.
Darlene said “We managed to get the little one inside before a bitter -20 night. She stayed overnight with us then yesterday a lovely lady that has a kitten rescue picked her up, took her to the vet, no microchip found. She’s currently in foster care and will be going back to vet for shots etc.” You are wonderful Darlene!
We have all kinds of finches, cardinals, blue jays, and woodpeckers at our feeders. Whenever a noise startles the birds, they all take off at the same time, and occasionally one will hit our windows. Twice I have been able to rescue a little finch.
Here is a little one that I picked up and put on a bench. Yesterday Mr. Mickey and I heard a load bang on the window and when I looked out I could see the legs sticking out of the snow mound but no movement. I pulled on my boots and waded through the deep snow and pulled out another little finch.
Poor thing! It was alive and I put him on our deck. Within minutes it flew away. There is no way he would have been able to turn upright and get out of the snow.
Kittens in our future?
Well, I setup the trail camera the other night. For some reason it never worked all night but in the early morning there were several videos of the stray cats that I feed.
Bad news…….I assumed they were both females but after watching one of the videos…..the big fluffy cat under the bushes is a male. I can see kittens in our future! I think the female kind of reminds me of an owl in this photo!
