Happy Quilting weekend and St. Patty's Day

Happy Quilting day (yesterday) and St. Patty's Day today. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend quilting and/or buying fabric :0)  I did my best and found some gorgeous Civil War fabrics yesterday...

while enjoying The Valley Quilt Guild's 30th annual Quilt Show in Yuba City, CA. Also a good show price on some Glide thread plus two of Superior's new variegated trilobal threads to try out. Purchased from the Sew So Shop, a vendor and quilt shop in Yuba City and also the Innova dealer for California. I want one!!!

My entrance ticket was drawn to win the jelly rolls and a pattern from Merrill-Lee Designs, one of the many vendors! That was fun, I don't often win giveaways. Thank you Merrill-Lee! She applied to be one of our vendors for Annie Star's Quilt Guild's quilt show later this year.

Another reason to attend the show was to meet seven of the vendors that applied to our guild's quilt show which takes place the weekend of September 28-29. 
Missed doing last weeks block for Grandmother's Choice BOW. I spent the weekend moving my sewing room into a different room. Can't say it's actually finished, more like a work in progress, like everything else! 

Here are a few quilts done recently for my friend Donna. This latest is a queen size basket quilt she made...

Applique baskets in the corners. Did a small stipple with my Juki
Not liking the Gammill for hand guided quilting...
I want an Innova!!!

Center Medallion Large Basket


Quilting details before SID was done... on the Juki!
Donna made several baby quilts...

Baby Quilt with Minkee backing (below)

Pirate baby quilt with black Pirate Minkee backing! So cute!

One more baby quilt with Radiance fabric added and a wool bat
Enjoy the remainder of the weekend. I may tackle the seven... yes... SEVEN pointed star representing Australia for Grandmother's Choice BOW. One approach... English paper piecing appliqued to the background or try piecing this block along with more Y seams! Check out blocks made on our group flickr site...Thanks for stopping by :0)


  1. Lucky girl! How super exciting!
    That mustard and large print red looks interesting. Very bold. I like!
    See you Wednesday night!

  2. What a lovely stack on winnings!!
    Moving quilting things to another room would take me forever! I'd have to clean and

  3. Love the quilting on the minky backed baby quilt...just lovely. Moving your quilting room...yikes!
