It's snowing outside today. I love it because it feels like Christmas. The beauty of it is Boise gets snow on and off throughout the winter but it melts in a day or two. My dogs love it.  The quilt in the picture I made for a ugly fabric contest. They gave us a fat quarter and we had to use as much as we could. The dark blue fabric is the ugly fabric. So I came up with this snowman. I designed the pattern and I think it turned out good. But I didn't win. The one thing we had to agree to was it leaving it hanging in the Quilt shop for a month so customers could vote. It's a really fun and challenging idea.
What type of contests does your local Quilt Shop put on?

Happy Quilting.

Xmas

This has been a very productive week. I finished all my Christmas shopping. Now the dreaded wrapping begins. Finally got my snowman cookie jar collection out and I am so happy. Snowmen are my favorite. All my  Christmas decor is snowmen except not all my Quilts.  I made this little tree Quilt in a class that I took. My Quilt teacher designed the tree part of the pattern. Of coarse I had to put my twist on it so I added packages under the tree and beaded the tree. I love to be different.

Happy Quilting.

Elf on a shelf

That sure was a quick weekend. Seems like the older I get the faster time goes by. Ten more days until Christmas Eve. I finishing up my decoration and found the famous Elf for my shelf. I couldn't resist taking my Sophie's Christmas picture with him. It's so funny to see one of my childhood memories become so popular. That's how old my this Elf is.

2015 flew by

Time is flying by. Christmas is in fifteen days. It's coming up so fast and I'm feeling the pressure of getting my projects finished. I'm almost done with my new tree skirt.  Hopefully I will get it done by the end of the week. In the mean time I've taken some breaks to do a few small things to match.  I just finished these coasters yesterday. They are so much fun to make. I've got  a huge collection going. I also find them to be great gifts.

Happy Quilting.

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I got together with a friend who wants to learn how to Quilt. She decided on 
a nine patch pattern in green and beige materials. We had a lot of fun. I love to make holiday towels. Usually using scraps from my holiday projects so everything matches. I buy solid colored cotton towels and put wide strips of fabric across one edge of each towel. I also make them to give away to my  friends and family as gifts.

Happy Quilting.

I'm always looking for ways to make great dinners but fast. I have always tried to plan  my slow cooker ahead of time so first thing in the morning I could throw my meal together, turn on the Crockpot and head to my Quilt Room. But I have recently been introduced to the pressure cooker. I absolutely love it. We all have the best time of the day that we like to Quilt and get the most done. Mine is mornings. I can get up at 4am and get so much accomplished. I'm not a night Quilter. I love the fact I can make my whole meal together in my new pressure cooker late in the afternoon and it's ready in under an hour. I found the cookbook on Amazon and it is wonderful.

Happy Quilting.
