A few of my favourite things.....

 This past week I have been cutting, cutting cutting. That's after I got my little wall hanging mini quilt hung in my sewing room. I have 2 big windows in my room so not a lot of wall space so I found room  for this sweet quilt near the door. I love to look at it when I'm coming and going.
 So what have I been cutting you ask..... lots and lots of strips to make my 9 patch blocks for this quilt, Yesterday I got a few more bigger blocks sewn together, now I need to make more  smaller blocks.

 All cut, sewn and ready to piece together.
 In the evenings I have been working on my Smitten quilt, 2 more finished. Yay!!!!
I think this new red one is my favourite, the light blue paisley  print is from Minick & Simpsons new line called Snowfall, its so pretty.

What wonderful things have you been creating  lately?

Hi Leanne! Thanks so much for putting the subscribe by e-mail gadget on your blog! This time I knew right away when you posted. :) Those 9-patches are a lot of work but they sure look good! I like your little mini quilt. That's a good motivator. :)

Hi there - I like your blocks and the red one is my favorite too. My most recent project I've worked on is doing some machine quilting on siggy blocks so I can finish them into a quilt using quilt as you go method. My first attempt at it.

Your blue quilt is reminding that I've never made one but it's still on the Wish List. You could make anything out of Minick & Simpson and I'd love it. Another reminder . . . must drag out my EPP and work on it.

Something so different
