"Madame Rouge" by French General from MODA

Look what just arrived at EllaKates! It's "Madame Rouge" by French General from MODA! Oh my goodness! These are beautiful reds and golds. My favorite!
 I can hardly wait to make something with them!

But for today I am going to  cut out "Martin Place" and get to stitching! "Martin Place" is made with "Grand Traverse Bay" by Minick & Simpson from MODA fabrics! They are simply beautiful! I will keep you posted on this one as it comes together!

Hope you are as excited as I am about your current project(s)! There is just nothing like creating a quilt!! HAPPY STITCHING!

Good Morning Sunshine!

This morning is filled with sunshine and hardly a breeze is stirring. These last hot days of summer will soon be replaced with crisp Autumn mornings! Hmmm, my favorite time of the year is just around the corner!
Yesterday I finished my Wool Nativity Project. What do you think?

We have the kits and the wools are gorgeous!
 Hope you have a Happy Monday! Remember to find the time to do a little stitching!

There is nothing like the feel of fine fabric!

We all love working with cotton and truth be known we are guilty of gently rubbing our hands over more than a bolt or two when looking for our latest find. However, sometimes I need to broaden my horizons and get my hands on some wool!

I encourage you to give it a try. You can start out simple by finding a kit you really like. If you are like me, once your project is completed you will be looking for the next one.

That is one thing that makes quilting so enjoyable. While it is addicting I must admit, it is also most rewarding! Don't you agree?

Speaking of addicting. I woke up this morning with an urge to get back to this little wool project.

I can hardly wait to finish it. It will be mounted on a beautiful piece of dark gold matka.

Christmas will be here before we know it and this will make a nice heirloom addition to our decorations. I love Christmas!

Paper Pieced Christmas Tree with Ornaments

Christmas Tree is quilted and bound! This is sure to be an eye catcher this Christmas at our house!

I just love the little flying geese in the tree skirt.

And I added a rick rack trim around the second border to give it a little punch of color!

The left over scraps went to good use in making the paper pieced Christmas ornaments.

The neat thing about this tree is that you just take it down, roll it up and put it away for the next year! Easy Peasy!

Now on to my next project...

I need to finish up a customer's quilt and then I think I will get started on "Midnight Hour". This is going to be a great Autumn Quilt with beautiful colors! I'll get a picture up soon so you can see. Until next time, remember, take a few minutes for yourself every day and stitch a little!
Happy Stitching!
