Now something easy

After all the thinking and tweaking of my Turtle quilt, I am ready to so something easy!!!! I bought 4 Tallulah charms packs at 3 Wishes fabrics. Could not resist those cute elephants :)

I have more than enough to make a cute and easy "plus Quilt" and it was on my to do list. One of our friend is having a baby (sex is a surprise) but I know she won't mind pink if it is a boy.

Already thinking of the fun FMQ I can do :)

Friday edition

I am pretty much done with my "Turtle Underwater" quilt top. Many of the 3D elements will be sown on the top once it is quilted like the seaweed, the fins on the fishes and the ray of lights. So very happy with the results.

Still working on the Turtle....and a bit of cougar

My quilting stay in the animal realm this week. My turtle is really taking shape and my background is almost done.

I also worked a bit on my low poly Cougar....does not look like much right now but it is always fun to see the finished product when I take the freezer paper off !!!

Turtle Underwater Quilt

My turtle quilt is taking shape! Slowly but surely because of health problems that leave me absolutely exhausted most of the time.
For the turtle I am mixing the crafted applique method with Inktense pastel and I am really loving the results. The fabric treatment does not impact the way the Inktense behave at all so it is a good news.


The background is about 40% done. I will probably add some fish and seaweed

Design wall Monday

I am back!!! The move is almost finished and I can sit down and sew. This title makes me happy.....because now I do have a design wall instead of a design floor :)

I just started a new ocean quilt. I used the same technique as my mermaid quilt but this one will have a turtle. My process is quite simple, I cut a few hundreds 2 inches squares in the color combination I like and put them on the design wall without thinking too much. I then take a picture to see if they play nice together and change what bother me. Taking a picture really help. (sorry for the bad pictures...I didn't intended to show them. ) Aslo new design wall :D

In the middle of the storm!!!

I just moved!!! It was insane and in fact it still is insane. Most things are in their place and it is livable but we still have boxes all over the place. My sewing room ( well sewing corner) is taking form.....slowly :)

My future design wall!!! I can finally have one.

Christmas in july Blog Hop!!!! My turn

It's my turn!!!!

For this blog hop, I had the hardest time finding my inspiration......because I am not that fond of Christmas....well ok I am not that fond of malls and the billion people trying to find the perfect gift....what I do like is fun gifts and fun traditions. It made me think of the ugly Christmas sweaters :) Since I do not knit (funny story....I got myself the book knitting for dummies........still could not do it) I found this great knitting patters and used it to design a quilt

All done with 1 1/2 inch squares........1225 of them to be precise. I used this method Interfacing grid technique so that everything line up nicely and goes faster. It finish 52.5" square and thank to  the interfacing, it  is very heavy and warm. 

Please visit the other ladies on this blog hop!!! They are a wonderful group of very talented quilters !!!!!
