En Provence quilt is finished

Hi everyone, 

I have a finish for February, just in time. Haha! 

I very simply quilted my En Provence quilt below. 
This quilt is for my daughter. She loves a soft quilt and didn't want it densely quilted. So I kept it simple. I used the Philip Jacobs picotte poppies print and the lavina print separated by a solid purple strip for the backing. I used the same solid purple for the binding. 
Haha! Had to add a puppy pic in there.

Slow stitching Sunday

Hi everyone, 

Today, I sewed on the binding to my En Provence quilt and started hand stitching it to the back. 
This pic gives you a peak at some of the backing fabric. I hope to have the binding done in the next few days.

RSC 17 week 8, aqua/blue green/teal

Hi all, 

I finally got a chance to work on some Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks in the February colours of aqua/blue green/teal. 

I made four more 16 patch variation blocks. These are 12.5 inch blocks. 
I really love these blocks, and they look great with the purple ones. 
I also made a few more 3.5 inch spool blocks. I'm way behind on these as I want 30 in each colour of the month. I do have a bunch cut and ready to sew. I just need a chance to get to it. 
I made some plus blocks too! These are cute 6.5 inch blocks. 

So, once I'm done working on my En Provence quilt, I'll make more spool blocks. I finished quilting my En Provence quilt last night. It just needs to be trimmed and bound.

My En Provence quilt is a finished flimsy!!!

Yeah! I did it! 
I got my En Provence quilt top completed. I'm so excited! 

 This is a big quilt, with a lot of pieces. 
This is going to be for my daughter. She picked the colours I used. All the fabric came from my stash! Yeah! For stash busting!! 
I'm not sure if I will quilt it myself yet. If I do, it will be simple quilting. 

I'm so thankful to Bonnie K. Hunter for the amazing pattern. If you want to make this quilt, she sells the PDF pattern on her website http://quiltville.com/shop.html

En Provence progress....

I'm moving along quite well on this quilt. I have started sewing the rows together.
There are so many pieces to sew together. But the results are so amazing. 
Here's a picture of my first two rows sewn together. I have the next two rows almost ready to add to this.
My daughter loves it so far. 
So that makes me excited to work on it!!

Pincushions and En Provence progress...

Hi everyone, 

I joined a pincushion swap and it started in January. My first pincushion made it to Janne in Norway. I made her a scrappy log cabin pincushion and a scrappy needle keeper.  
Both of these were made with fabric in my crumb bin. Love it when I can use tiny pieces of fabric to make something useful. 

I received a pincushion from Tanja. It's super cute. Here it is. 
I love pincushions. I have a variety of them. I'm so excited to be able to add to my collection. 

I've also been working on my En Provence quilt designed by Bonnie K. Hunter. 

I have the 16 blocks done. 

Now, I'm working on the sashing blocks. I still have quite a bit of sewing to do on this quilt. There are a lot of pieces in this quilt. Lol! But that's what makes it so special. I'm using only stash fabric and have not purchased any fabric for this quilt. Love it!
