I love mail!

....especially when it is a quilt magazine
and the Primitive Quilts magazine is super... Love this book!!!!

This project caught my eye...

Flying geese are a favourite of mine but sometimes I find it a hassle to make. 
Well this is a different version. "Raw edge Flying Geese" 
They sew up quickly and precisely!!!

The pattern calls for  

"raw edge" appliqué at each end.

And here it is all done

.. I can see there will be more projects made from this magazine♥♥

Some "heart" projects

♥♥♥Happy Valentine 's day everyone... ♥♥♥
Some of my pieces I made over the years...with this special day in mind.

 This piece is the very first piece  I ever stippled...  
I pieced it in an afternoon and it took me a week to do the free-motion quilting. Valentine's day was over by the time I finished the stippling..

I figured while I was on a roll I should make another one 

and so this one was created and again my stippling adventure continued.
This last one is the one I showed you in my previous post.

When the Charming Girls Quilt Club was active we would have sewing days. On this one Saturday everyone did a Valentine project . We would sign up for the quilt along and post our progress on our blog all day long. Everyone would visit each others blog to see the projects and then the host of that event would have a parade on her blog of all the projects that had been sewn that day.  
It was a real fun time and it seemed like we we all in the same room sewing on our projects  together. Yet we were spread out all over the world.
Many wonderful friendships were formed in "blogland".

I would love to see your ♥♥♥Valentine pieces♥♥♥ Let me know when you post them on your blog or if you do not have a blog e-mail me a picture and I will post it here on mine.  
Enjoy February 14th with a special someone !

One of these days..

I am going to be true to my promise to update my blog regularly or at least more often! 
I enjoy reading the blogs I follow but skip  mine totally... 

I was off last week to take care    
Hubby after his surgery and I did  get to sew ..

First project was this machine appliqued quilt.  
Pattern "Blessings Baskets" by Jan Patek in
the fabric "Hemming House" by Brannock and Patek. 

Then I machine embroidered a welcome on burlap  
for my long

 door window ..
Here is what the letters look like

 Fringed the burlap to make it more country style
and sewed them on a piece of Buggy Barn fabric.

This is a busy week ... Today is Shrove Tuesday so I am thinking homemade blueberry pancakes and a big batch of
peanut butter fudge and  for an evening treat I am thinking chocolate...
Tomorrow we enter into Lent with Ash Wednesday.. 
 as the saying goes L.O.V.E is in the air with Valentines Day on Thursday
Heart  table topper is brought out and proudly displayed; "indoors" on the kitchen table.  

Happy celebrations !
