It’s snowing like mad here in Montana. We had a good snow storm last week that left us with about 7 inches of snow. After it started melting we now are looking at another possible 6 to 8 inches. I love it! Of course I stay indoors and drink lots of hot tea and quilt. What do you do when the weather is bad?
Speaking of quilting, Moda had a fun little quilt project last week. It was called Moda Love In Quilt Sew-a-long. I made three quilts, one from Moda Garden Variety charms and two from Moda Quill mini charms. Here are my pictures. The mini charm quilts are completed and the charm quilt is still being hand quilted.
These were a lot of fun and super easy to make. And a great way to use some of my stash so I can make room for new charms and mini charms.
I am super excited to start National Quilters Circle Mystery Paper Piecing Quilt. This is a free quilt project open to any one. If you have never done paper piecing quilting now is your chance to try. So click on the link and join it today. This should be lots of fun!
I am clearing up some of my UFOs. It’s a good feeling. It also makes room for more UFOs. What can I say, I get several projects going at once. I try to just do one at a time but ….. I find a new quilt pattern I have to try or design one and then one thing leads to another. I find myself with several projects going at once. Are you a one project at a time person or are you like me, several projects at a time person?
I know Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Unfortunately I haven’t made anything for Valentines. But Jacquelynne Steves has a list of free Valentines projects you can check out. Just click on her linked name to see the projects!
Well, it’s time for more tea and back to finishing my Moda Love Quilt so I can finish a couple more quilts before I start the National Quilters Circle Mystery Paper Piecing Quilt. By the way, if you are doing any hand quilting, let me recommend Aurifil 50 wt thread. It’s smooth and silky as well as strong. And it comes in some amazing colors. I absolutely love it. You can purchase it from one of my favorite places, Fat Quarter Shop. Click on the link and check it out!
Have a great week! I hope everyone stays safe and warm and dry. Winter isn’t over and grab some tea, sit back and quilt!
Until next time – Mmmmmm nothing like a cup of hot Chai tea
