My Finished FLIQS Quiltie

Here it is, finally finished and ready to be mailed as soon as I gather some extras for my partner. I enjoyed a lot making it and, although I've already made other quilts with this technique, I had never used a sewing machine, I always hand sittched the windows and that took ages !!! I'd highly recommend using the sewing machine, it was so much funn !!! And I still have my fingers on !!! LOL That is the best !!!

I LOVE how it turned out and would LOVE to keep it, but I'll honor my word 
and will send it to its new owner.

Maybe I'll make one for me as my wall will miss it !!!
Have a great day !!

Bitty Side Swap with Sil

I must confess I'm obssessed with bitties (3.5" quilt blocks, unfinished) and I've been swapping them since the Flickr Group was created back in June 2010, I think. Sometimes I love a bitty and I'm not part of the group so we also arrange side swaps for those special bitties we love and wouldn't get otherwise. This time I'm side swapping Tree bitties with Sil, and these are the trees I made for her. Hope she likes them !

A Summer Tree.

A Cherry Blossom Tree.

A Rainbow Tree.

And a Winter Tree.

Here they are together !

Have a great day!

Fab Little Quilt Swap WIP

Hi, happy Sunday morning to all !!!

I'm taking part in the Fab Little Quilt Swap, a Flickr Group, and I'm making my partner's quiltie. Bright colors, rainbows and cathedral windows are some of the things my partner likes so I'm making a quiltie joining all of them in one place. I hope my partner likes it !!

I made the background last month and used some dark fabrics for the bottom of the windows.

And i'm using bright fabrics for the top. Here's a sneak peek of the windows WIP. The fun part begins !!

I love this technique ! Some day i'll make a pillow out of it for me !!
Have a great day !!

Crochet Flowers

     Recently I tried to crochet for the first time as I've always loved it and I decided to try some simple flowers. I followed this tutorial (scroll down until you see the flowers) and this is my end result.

     I LOVE them and they were really easy to do. I think I'll make lots of them in the future !!!
Hope you try them too, they'll be a great addition to any clothes or mini quilts perhaps.
Have a great day !!

I'm back !

Hi people, I've been away for so long that a blog post seems so strange to me now !!! And It's all new, everything changed, so I hope to do it well !!!

I've been wanting to get back to the blogging life for quite some time now, but I had lots of problems and didn't have the time or the energy to do it. But thanks to Ruth I decided this was the right time to get back to blogland. She talked to me about Soma's Halloween Paper Piecing Blog Hop taking place in October and I joined it. We'll have lots of fun making Halloween blocks !!! Please join us and have fun !!!

Have a great day !!
