Moving Forward.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and look forward to 2017 and all the quilting fun that will involve.
I hope you all have a great festive season with the ones you love and that 2017 brings you good health and happiness.

I have been MIA on the blog for a couple of months as have been very busy both with work, quilting and playing in alot of Christmas Golf Tournaments and family visiting. Time on the computer has been minimal but thought I would do a quick post before the festive season, in which I will be working and welcoming new ones into the world.

A little of what I have been up to. In November I was a pattern tester for Joanne over at Canuck Quilter for her pattern that she has just released-Tic Tac Who?
The pattern includes the choice of an owl, a duck or a dog. Joanne gave the option of which block to do and we could make either just the block or the quilt. I was lucky that I was able to make the owl and although ther are alot of very small pieces, Joannes instructions and illustrations make everything very clear and easy to follow.
I used my stash to make this blue take on the quilt and used fat quarters rather than yardage. This now sits in the pile waiting to be quilted.
If anyone wants a quilt for a little one I would highly recommend this pattern. I will definitely make another one.
I have been busy quilting some customer quilts and totally underestimated the time it would take to custom quilt one of them but loved it when it was finished as did it's owner. This was the first quilt she had ever sent out to a longarmer so I was very nervous.
Here is a sneak peak until I ask her if I show the whole quilt.
Another thing that has takenn up time is that I have sold my Funquilter- I noe have my Nolting Pro so the Funquilter was not being used. I have new neighbours and her mother is a quilter ( and is now my new quilting friend) and saw the machine and so I said why not come I will show you how to use it. This is her first ever quilt on a longarm-and what a great job she did.

No automatic alt text available.

She loved the machine and has now bought it and it is installed at her house. She lives in the same town as I do, so I have been visiting  and helping  her out and we are having alot of fun.

That is a quick catch up and photos of some of my latest activites.
Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday Season. Take care and keep safe
