pieced, applique and knit

Gentleman`s fancy mini
I tried to hand quilt this baby but it looked horrible so I had to take out all the hand quilting and then machine quilt it..the blocks were just to small with the seam allowances. I never thought i would say that machine quilting looked better on a quilt but..never say never

more flowers to applique I started pressing more flowers for the flower baskets that I am working on

a nice change from quilting great scarf to make in a day
I hadn`t knitted in years but found this gorgeous yarn Frill Seekers google it and you can see the many scarves with tutorials on how to do it. This only took a day to make and it is lovely. I said almost makes me want to knit again.

I don`t think I will have to post again till the new year. So please have a wonderful Holiday Season with family and friends, stay safe and healthy. I am surely looking forward to 2012! you will see on the sidebar what my challenge will be please click on the little house and it will tell you more!


  1. Merry Christmas Deb and the very best in the new year.

  2. What a sweet quilt - machine quilting definitely suits it to a T! Frilly yarn has been been popular here too, I like the colour of yours. Best wishes for the holiday season, and for a great 2012!

  3. The house looks like fun but three inches is way too small and one a day is way too many. Good luck! Have a great Holiday!

  4. Your little quilt is lovely! The scarf looks like it was fun to make. I love doing things that go together so quickly.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too!

  5. The mini turned out lovely and the machine quilting you did was perfect for that quilt! Wow, you did great with the scraf and with all those prepped flowers, your blocks will be finished in no time.

  6. I love the scarf. I have been admiring them for a while and now you've given me the info I need to make one myself. Thanks and have a great holiday with you family.

  7. Yes, I would think it would be tough to quilt a little quilt. It is beautiful.
    The little house project looks fun. I am going to think about it. thanks for sharing it.
    Have a very Merry Christmas!

  8. Love your mini... that scarf is beautiful...
    Merry Christmas and a great New Year to you too..
