Happy New Year! The "My Magical Garden Quilt-Along" page is live!

My Magical Garden Dates

Today is the day!  Our "My Magical Garden" Quilt-Along is now accepting registrations for our nine-month Block of the Month program.  Starting in March, registered members will have a Quilt-Along with me so I can show you my methods for making this beautiful fusible appliqué quilt. 

I See our Rotary Cut Shapes Everywhere! Day 26

WALLPAPER

Once you know what our Leaves Galore tools can do, there is inspiration everywhere!  Whether you are looking at wallpaper, carpets or stained glass windows, you can find these beautiful curved shapes that come together into gorgeous patterns.  Each time I spot a shape that I could rotary cut with my tools, there is a quilt waiting to happen!There are never enough hours in the day.

 

I have a secret....Blog post 17 of the December challenge

But I'm terrible at keeping secrets from you!  The BOM quilt is finished!  It is 11pm and I just stitched on the outer half square triangle border.  But I couldn't show you a photo of the quilt, even if I wanted to!  

I sew in my basement.  The ceilings are very low and the sewing room is very small...and the quilt...well, it's a big one! It is pinned to my design wall, trailing on the floor and spilling over around the corner on a second wall.  

Christmas Gift Boxes to Wrap up your Christmas Wrapping! Day 12 of the Blog Post Challenge

Gift Boxes made with Leaves Glaore

One of the things I love to do around the holidays is to make gifts for people in my life who would not normally expect a gift.  Last year I made Bowl Cozies for the 26 employees at my local coffee shop!  Why, you ask?  There are five or six women who work there that make my coffee for me and my husband every morning.  They don't even ask, they just make my coffee when they see me waiting in line.  Some days we are chatty, some days I am not so friendly.  Remember, it is morning and I haven't yet had my coffee! 

Block of the Month, A Quilt Along with Sue,,,Day 11 - Blog Post Challenge

Do you get bored with your projects midstream?  Do you have more UFOs than finished projects this year?  I have the worst case of bright, shiny object syndrome of any quilter I know!  But you would be so proud of me! 

Blog Post Challenge - Day 6

Christmas Baubles

Our latest holiday pattern using the Hearts and More templates is Christmas Baubles.  This pattern is quick to make if you need a last minute handmade gift.  

Wouldn't it be fun to cut circles out of fabrics containing your favorite animals?  A kitty tree would be just adorable!  Nancy Sullivan, one of my Certified Instructors, made her pretty quilt using bright red cardinals in some of the circles.  

Generation Q and Quilter's Stash Box

Two exciting things are happening with Hearts and More this week.  First, Generation Q magazine is blogging about and having a contest to win my book and a small set of Hearts and More tools and a copy of my new book!  They have asked readers to comment on what you would write on the hearts in this sweet little Conversation Hearts quilt!  In the comments below, I will put a link to the Generation Q contest so you can go, write a sweet saying, and win a copy of my book and tools!
