Wow does time fly. Back in January of 2012 I started this quilt from a layer cake of A Stitch in Color. Most of the blocks were done and then it got shoved to the back somehow.

  I am purposing to finish some things this year so I dug out the blocks and got the top done. Yay!

The last block is a little more scrappy than the others because I was running out of fabric. I went onto Flickr to see how others had finished theirs and most had done a border like this, so I did too. I like how it extends out to the edge.

Quilting has begun.

While hubby and I were away, we were able to take in a Canucks game. We had great seats and it was really fun to be there.  That's Kevin Bieksa in the poster. Me and him go way back. When I started watching the Canucks, he was in diapers.....

Anyway, even though the Canucks didn't win, somebody did. That person is *Cornelia* ! Congratulations on winning the book.  I have sent you an e-mail.

Thanks everyone for playing along. Happy Sunday

******give-away now closed

 The other day while writing a blog post, I noticed that this little blog has reached over 100,00 page views.  Imagine!
I think that is cause to celebrate, so I decided a give-away was in order.  This is just to say thanks to all of you who stop by.

Just leave one comment on this post for a chance to win this book 'Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe.'

Hubby and I are unplugging for a few days, so I will choose a winner when we get back.


This is the rest of the show and tell from the meeting. We had everything from quilts and wallhangings, to an umbrella! Enjoy

I've had several e-mails from ladies telling me how much they enjoyed the meetings and how they were inspired. Thanks to all of you for coming out. I'm inspired too  : )

******If you have a minute tomorrow, come back for a little give-away.

Happy Wednesday

Last Saturday we had our last club meeting. I decided a bit of a trunk show would be a great way to wrap up the year. I brought a selection of just some of the quilts I've made. First up some Hexie quilts

 brand new

 about 10 years old

 from back in the day (this was given to me)

the rest are quilts made for the club meetings

I didn't bring the ones that aren't quilted yet, but I'll show them here when I get them done : )

I'll be back in a couple of days with the show and tell the ladies brought. Thanks so much to all of you who came out and supported the club the past three years : )

Enjoy your week
