A finished table runner, a finished quilt top and progress on Leo's Mane

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing well. 
It's been a crazy week for me. But, I did manage to do some sewing.

Yesterday, I finished my red and black table runner that I made using the first two blocks of my Sampler BOM quilt. It turned out really nice. It's a keeper.

I free motion quilted it on my Janome 1600p-db.
This was all from fabrics in my stash, including the backing.

On the weekend, I also finished my Idaho square dance flimsy. 
I really love how this quilt top turned out. 
It's all done from fabrics from my stash also. I busted a lot of tiny scraps with this one. 

I need to find backing fabric for it still and buy some batting to finish it. 

I also continue to work on my Leo's Mane quilt. 
I almost have part two completed. 

This is my current hand piecing project. This one is English paper pieced and I bought the papers from 
Eagles' Wings quilts. This quilt is Cathy's original design. 

I hope you like my projects!!

Slow stitching Sunday and a mini quilt finish

Hi everyone, 

I hope you had a nice weekend.
I had a great weekend with my family. 
The weather was beautiful and I also got to do some sewing.

Today, is I was able to continue hand sewing on my Leo's Mane quilt project. 
I had completed step 1 in the sew along quite early.
But, since I purchased the pre cut papers from 
Eagles Wings Quilts , I was able to continue on with my progress. 

Here's my progress so far.
I really like how it's coming together so far. 

I also made a mini improv spikes quilt.
I joined the modern quilt group of my local quilt guild. 
They have a separate meeting once a month and have challenges for the group members to try.
I'm a keener. Lol! I went to the meeting on Friday and then came home and started working on a mini quilt. 
I've always loved improv quilts, but never really tried them. 
I was inspired by Deb of A Quilter's table to make improv spikes. 
I finished this quilt Saturday night. 
I really like the way it turned out.
I like the size of this project and may make another one in a similar size.

Table runner progress

Hi everyone, 

I took my blocks from my quilt guild BOM sew day and made a table runner. 
It's not completely done. I still need to find a backing for it and quilt it.

I hope you like it!

Leo's Mane sew along, part 1 complete

Hi everyone, 

I have joined Catherine, from 
Eagles Wings Quilts in doing her Leo's Mane quilt. 
This quilt is English paper pieced. 
I decided to purchase the cut pieces from her store.
I'm so glad I did. This will save me a ton of time. Because these pieces are tiny. 

I managed to complete step 1 already.
I'm not the best at English paper piecing, but I hope to greatly improve as I work on this quilt. 

I requested a colouring page so that I could decide on how I was going to use my fabric.
 I knew I wanted it to be somewhat scrappy. 
I also decided to have two constant colours, Kona white and Kona black. 
The rest would be made from a rainbow of prints from my stash. 
Here's my colouring page. 
I'm excited to continue to work on this quilt. 
Go check out Catherine's site. 
Maybe you want to make this quilt with your own colours. 

Note: I'm not affiliated with this site, I'm just participating in her quilt along. Which I'm excited about. Ha!
