Crafting adventure

Spent a few hours this past weekend, showing a friend how to make some felt ornaments for her tree.
These are the patterns that were used. The owl pattern could be found online, I had to make the other two myself.

I helped my friend get started and shemilie basically completed the foxes and penguins on her own. I did the owls because they involved a few different kinds of stitches.

Shimmering Triangles

I know you might think I'm crazy but I'm okay with that. I want to make this quilt.  Just the small version.  I looked at the pattern last night.  It's not so bad.  I think material selection will be the most difficult part of this entire quilt.

It calls for large print fabrics.  I'm not usually a fan of large print fabrics but I am going to give it a try!!!  Now to decide what colours to do it in!

What you are you all up to these days?
Happy Sunday

Another quilt for me to do ... Imagine that!!!!!

I'm obsessed with this quilt.  I can't wait to get started.  I've even finished a few tasks that I hate doing - I took out the garbage, did errands around town, swept/washed the floor (okay I turned the robot on)!!!  This is the version of the quilt that caught my eye:


I found it on Pinterest, which lead me to Pile O'Fabric Modern Sewing Blog!!! As I read the post, I discovered she used a jelly roll and made this into a wall hanging instead of a full size quilt.  I just happen to have a few jelly rolls and I think I might follow her lead and make a wall hanging instead of a full sized quilt.  So I played with some colours:

Since the quilt is called Super Nova, I thought I would search for some guidance.  Here's what I used: 

An actual super nova!!!  I have a few more things, quilt things, to finish before I get to start this one.  Maybe I can do this in NB this summer just using scraps!!  No planning???  Not sure I can do that!!!!

One more sleep and it's the last day of school!!!!
