Time for a bucket list

Quite a few people are posting quilty bucket lists over at the tilted quilt and i thought i'd join in and think about what quilts i'd really love to make.

first is Jen Kingwell's "gypsy wife" quilt

secondly is a McKenna Ryan quilt. I absolutely love "dog park"

third I'd love to make a road to Oklahoma quilt but have it be very colourful almost a rainbow version

Head on over and see what's on other people's lists and maybe plan you own!

Teal triangles

This week I was working on HSTs for my "love is like a butterfly" quilt for the rainbow scrap challenge at the so scrappy blog

Here they are in the middle of being pressed but not yet trimmed. 

I was also working on some teal triangles this week for a center for a round robin quilt. I made mine using a paper piecing pattern.

Happy quilting!

A pair of blocks and a pair of labs

Thought I'd start out showing the quilt I made for Doll Quilters Monthly for February as it was received by my partner. It's called "All you need is..."

I had a really hard time with the theme which was love letters until my dad came up with using this statue. See it helps to surround yourself with clever people. ;)

This week So Scrapy  unvailed March's colour for the rainbow scrap challenge. Much to my excitement because it's teal/ aqua!   I got started straight away on this one because I've tons of it (no real surprise to me).

I got some charms together for my "charming rainbow" quilt and discovered some charms reading more blue and some more green so I split them up and made 2 blocks

And here they are together as they will be in the quilt

And today my sewing room is filled with lazy dogs… it's a cold and gloomy day here in Omaha


 And Buttermilk

Happy quilting!
