Summer is over.

Okay so during the late spring/early summer I don't do a lot of quilting or any other crafts to be exact but I am slowly getting back to it, so when I have some new interesting projects that I've completed I will post them.

Hope you all had a good summer.

There will be 16 owls in all, 4 trees, and some triangles. When I get more done. I will post more. Which owl is your favorate?

Paper Piecing

I love paper piecing. I just learned how to do it from some friends of mine, after searching for a shop that does a class in it for a year, and coming up empty. So now that I know how to do it, I see it being taught in a couple different shops.... figures....

anyways here are pictures of what I am doing.



Paper piece christmas trees. I generally don't like to do christmas crafts, but these are so easy and fast. I am going to make two table toppers, one for me and one for my mom for christmas.


Also I made a cupcake pot holder. I didn't like the pattern this came from though, I should have made the muffin top a little bigger so that when i was turning it there would be a little extra room.

That's all for today.
Have a good day!

I am loving these patchabilities patterns. You can check out the website for them at:

I have done several of them, and have several more to finish. Here are the ones I've done.


Chocolate Bunny

Candy Hearts

Flower Pots

Canada Day

They have tons of different patterns and they are super simple for you lazy quilters out there like me. I've found that I love applique and now I am trying to find a class in classic turn over applique in my area to take. It's surprising to me that most of the quilt shops in the are teach this method where you use steam-a-seam and a blanket stitch but nobody seems to teach the classic way of doing it.

Also sorry for the huge amount of time between this and my last post.
