I can't believe Karen the Quilter got this quilt back to me so fast! It is so snuggly. I was stitching the binding down and put it down for a moment and one of my sister's puppers decided to snuggle it. I was sorry to take it away from him. I think this is Dogter with the quilt. He's so sweet!

I made these two quilt tops for my youngest two nieces. I tried to make them as identical as possible! The fabric is Olaf and the two Frozen girls. (I've never seen the movie so I don't remember names.) My sister gave them a loft bed for their dolls so they needed quilts! The backing is leftover pink damask minky from my Sheri Beri Holiday quilt. The girls loved the doll quilts and that's all that matters!

Finally this is Critter Christmas. It's a bit longer than the pattern but I wanted to use more of the border fabric.

I was having a bummer day last week about treated myself to a pattern I had long pinned. This is Christmas Mischief and the pattern is available on etsy.
I just love this: Oh Dear there's a mistake:

After I realized how much I was enjoying my Halloween Star Wars strippie, I decided I needed a Christmas one. I was able to get a couple of yards to make these strippies. They're currently untrimmed and I'm waiting on some minky for the backing. My Halloween strippie backing is flannel and my boyos don't care for it. But they love minky! I might have to fight to get use of one of these!
Also, the red, yellow, and holly fabric are all from my stash!

I emailed Karen the Quilter to see if she had time to quilt for me and she responded immediately. I went straight home and fixed up the backing and batting-and mailed it off the next morning!

I made this little sampler for my nephew and his wife. It's their wedding gift but it was a little late-like a year and a few days later. Oh well, it's totally cute and I hope they love it. I found the pattern on etsy. The pattern offers the charts three different ways: symbols, symbols and color, just color. Well I used the color chart and it made it so much easier! I will try to find more charts like that.
Miss September is for the Saturday Sampler at the LQS. It was a pretty easy block. Three more months to go!

I saw some bat quilts so I drafted this little bat. Super cute and I was really proud of myself for drafting it on my own. I have an idea for a batty quilt. . .
And this little goose is for the Chocolatier quilt. It took me forever to trim the doggone things and I only needed 64 for the quilt. My hands were hurting for some reason so I opted not to sew for the rest of the day.

So my sister called and asked if I had any book fabric (which made me laugh because I'm a librarian). I had some different fabrics and this kit from Connecting threads. She really like the blue and white book stacks fabric so while we were on the phone I started cutting out the pattern. I figured if I had any leftover I could send it to her. Well it turned out that Connecting Threads had accidentally sent me two fat quarters of that fabric and I only needed one! She was worried I would need the fabric but I told her I had already cut out what I needed. She was really happy. And isn't this little bookworm cute?? I haven't sewed his eyes on yet -need to check with my long armer. So cute!
I would use these fabrics:

It's a top! My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
I am working on a new wall hanging. This one is using Steampunk Halloween. I wanted to use the yellow tossed print as a square on point and...
This was a doozy! Up to eleven!
