Gee whizzz…..time sure does fly lately….

I have been in my cave writing up a pattern. I can’t believe how long it took.

But it is all done! Yay!! Happy Happy Joy Joy!!

Wanna see a little bit? I know you love sneak peeks…

Just thought I would show you a bit of a sneak peak at the new design. It’s going on a plane trip soon…in March…..down south….soon….not long now :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have also been busy putting the bindings on 4 of my quilts that I got them back from being quilted by Natalie of The Quilting Bug

I was very pleased with the quilting that Nat did on all these quilts for me and here are the backs of two of the quilts so you can see the quilting.

New BOM 2012

This backing fabric is in my store and is lovely.

Can’t show you the fronts yet because they are being published soon.

I love seeing quilts rolled up too….I did this before with some other quilts. What is it about a quilt rolled up?

All new designs and one for the man in your life, that’s the one on the bottom right hand corner.

The one in the left hand corner Mr T designed it from Batik fabrics from my store and I made it and Nat quilted it. Wow….three people worked on a quilt.

Top left has 9 gorgeous stitcheries and also pieced blocks which are all on point. The top right hand one is great with Batiks and a fab design which is quick and fun to do.

The Batiks you can get these from my store

 The Pickledish Patch.

Now it’s on to writing up the patterns for these and that part is the boring part. Might have to get the whip out to myself! I still have to put the binding on one more quilt too….but that one is a Thimbleberries design. I forgot how huge it was and I let Nat go for it with the quilting design. She had lots of fun and it has turned out really lovely. Once I bind it I will show you :)

Hope you are getting lots of sewing done too

Hugs to all…..
