winding down from Easter

 We auditioned where blocks where to be layed
 Cut background fabrics
 had an audience
And taa daa we got 3 tops done. Mom had the blocks done through BOM`s she did through the year then we get together to put them into tops, then she and her Wheatley Friendship Club quilting friends will hand quilt them. 

These were done in between going to Markham Guild on the Thursday to watch a friend of mine Sandy and her Trunk show, Sat going to 2 Quilt shops and lunch making our Easter Meal on Sunday. We did well it was any easy setting for us. 

 I also have put my giant star in a frame to start hand quilting this will be fun to do since there are sooo many fabrics used in it.
aaaaaand we have another mini finish. This was a challenge from Twisted Stitchers guild on how to describe you as a quilter to make a small quilt and put words on it. This is hand appliqued and quilted. Bringing tonight for show and share.

It has been slowly turning to spring and I have been getting out in the garden with the winter clean up

Also this weekend is the Napanee quilt show.  It is a beautiful drive to get there.

Odds and sodds

 You will notice that I am a quilter that likes different fabrics and quilts you never know what the heck I would be working on or what fabrics, that is what I love about quilting I can do anything at anytime. so this is a top I finished (well almost just got borders to put on) it was from a Quilt for Cure Kit and the stars are cut from a jelly roll. I love the sashing fabric that is what enticed me to even make this gorgeous quilt!
 The cover on my tv stand (aka dresser) was a xmas gift I received in a swap, from one of the groups I belong to,  it fits perfect and she did a fabulous job using her machine stitching!
This one I had started last summer and I am going to finish it soon but wanted to just have a look at it. I am not a purple fan but you can really see it. I want to put lemoyne stars all the way around as one of the  rounds. I bought a new ruler last year that is supposed to make them easier. I love doing Y seams but thought I would try the ruler.

The first picture is all Y seams I can do them in my sleep.

Have a wonderful East to you all.
