Then it was end of April!

I seem to be loosing track of the days, hard to believe that it is already the end of April. I have managed to take a small holiday to Tasmania for school holidays. Which was so lovely, I would go back in a heart beat. 

Quilty life has been ticking along. Still waiting for my long arm to be fixed but I am still creating. I finished testing this quilt pattern and editing the instructions for Crafty Ma Quilts. Love how this turned out. It uses the mini quick curve ruler. 


Since I don't like to throw scraps away I created this little improv piece. It is so relaxing to just sit and stitch with no real plan. 

I made myself a new Girlfriend Wallet. Yes, I know the bunnies are upside down but does not make me love it any less. Directional fabric is such a pain. 

Another pattern edit and test for Crafty Ma Quilts.  I went for a little different colour palette but I think it worked out great. 

Whipped up a couple of easy drawstring bags for the boys. So easy. 

Also managed to make myself a new bag, only cut it out at the beginning of the year. It is a two zip hipster bag from Dog Under My Desk.  It is a great pattern. I have two more cut out ready for stitching up. 

My lovely friend gave me a bag of her scraps and I created these two small pieces. Can't wait till I can quilt these up. 


I also took another quilt off the design wall. Zodiac Block of the Month.  This really turned out great. Now to plan how I will quilt this one up. 

Now that the design wall is cleared off it has not taken long for me to fill it back up. I pulled out a WIP art quilt.  This is a pattern by Quilt Art Designs and I started it a few years ago and am so excited to be able to get back to it. So many pieces but I think it will be awesome in the end. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Finish-A-Long 2017 Q2 Projects

Can you believe quarter one is wrapping up all ready? Crazy.  I managed to complete three of my four goals from first quarterpink/blue improv, faster fourteen and snippets improv.   I would of completed the fourth quilt but I broke my long arm.  Still not fixed but hopefully soon it will be back up and running.

My goals for quarter two will be as follows:

1) High Tea carried over from Q1 since it is still partially loaded on the long arm still. Hopefully my machine will be back up in running by mid April. 


2) Complete two Two Zip Hipster bags by Dog Under My Desk. I cut them out in February and they have just been waiting.


3) Spider Text Quilt - This one is for Master 13 and he keeps asking so hopefully the next three months will see this completed. 

4) Vera Slouch Bag - Trying to work my way through patterns that I have purchased. Pulled this fabric a few months ago to give this Vera Slouch Bag pattern a go. 


Thank you for stopping by and visiting.
