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?

Busy Busy you are . You are making great progress on your Nantucket! Good job my dear. Cute little mini scissors quilt for you to enjoy. I wonder if that would help me to enjoy cutting more? It is my least favorite task of making a quilt. :/ but it must be done. Carry on, Happy is the one who sews. : ) It is another week ! Janita

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.

Beautiful work as always Leanne. There is something lovely about blues and creams x

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.
