A Quilty Christmas Wish List...Day 15

Needle Beedle

I have just finished my Christmas shopping online and WHOO HOO!  Everything will be delivered to my door.  Here in New England it has been a cool 23 degrees, and I'm doing all my shopping in my jammies  so I don't have to go out in the cold!

Have you been a good girl this year?  Maybe Santa will fill your stocking with some great sewing gadgets. 

Christmas Gift Boxes to Wrap up your Christmas Wrapping! Day 12 of the Blog Post Challenge

Gift Boxes made with Leaves Glaore

One of the things I love to do around the holidays is to make gifts for people in my life who would not normally expect a gift.  Last year I made Bowl Cozies for the 26 employees at my local coffee shop!  Why, you ask?  There are five or six women who work there that make my coffee for me and my husband every morning.  They don't even ask, they just make my coffee when they see me waiting in line.  Some days we are chatty, some days I am not so friendly.  Remember, it is morning and I haven't yet had my coffee! 

Block of the Month, A Quilt Along with Sue,,,Day 11 - Blog Post Challenge

Do you get bored with your projects midstream?  Do you have more UFOs than finished projects this year?  I have the worst case of bright, shiny object syndrome of any quilter I know!  But you would be so proud of me! 

Do You EQ? Electric Quilt has Received a Face Lift. Blog Challenge Day 8

eq8

Over the years I have been slowly learning how to use the Electric Quilt software  This week we installed an upgrade to our EQ software, EQ8.  Kari Schell is my EQ expert.  I met Kari at CABS, the Creative Arts Business Summit that I went to last year.  The best thing about CABS was meeting such wonderfully knowledgeable people. In the last year, my knowledge of drawing appliqué blocks has grown by leaps and bounds with Kari's guidance.

Blog Post Challenge - Day 6

Christmas Baubles

Our latest holiday pattern using the Hearts and More templates is Christmas Baubles.  This pattern is quick to make if you need a last minute handmade gift.  

Wouldn't it be fun to cut circles out of fabrics containing your favorite animals?  A kitty tree would be just adorable!  Nancy Sullivan, one of my Certified Instructors, made her pretty quilt using bright red cardinals in some of the circles.  

The Honorary Flamingo! Day Four of the Blog Challenge

Pink Flamingos

Do you have a special group that you belong to and quilt with?  I hope you do.  These guilds, bees, mini groups, internet groups or charity groups spring up out of sharing a love for something.  If you weren't a quilter, you would seek out friends who love to do what you do.  Book groups,garden clubs, church groups....you get the picture!
