Sun, Sand, and Sea BOM Finish and Quilt Link Party

Can you believe that 
our Sun, Sand, and Sea 
BOM is coming to an end?

Here is what all of those 
blocks look like when 
they are all sewn together.

This was finished creating
54 flying geese blocks that are
2 1/2" x 4 1/2" with 2 1/2" blocks
on the corners.
Then, I added a 4 1/2" border to
frame up the whole quilt.

The quilt was completed

I loved seeing all the
blocks come together

and I can't wait for it to be 
all quilted up.
You can find all the patterns

Under the Big Top Circus Pillow

I was lucky enough
this fall to work with 
a beautiful collection 
of fabric by Blend.

It is Calliope  by 
designer Maude Ashbury.
It is cute and whimsical.

After some deliberation, 
I decided to make a pillow 
that embraced the circus theme.

You can see some tricks to how I created the 
flaps to the circus tent and
other details over at Thermoweb.

I used Aurifil 12wt. thread 
to quilt the outside edge and to 
hand-stitch the banner string down.

I just love how it 
turned out.

The full pattern for the pillow 
can be found on my Craftsy
pattern page.

This would be the perfect
pillow for the nursery for all those spring or
summer babies that will
soon be arriving.
You will have to not sew on buttons,
if it is to be in a child's room. 

While you are downloading the 
Free pattern, go 
and check out the awesome sale that 
Craftsy is having.

I picked up this quilt kit that 
I have had my eye on for some time.

I can't wait to get this 
and finish it for my son for next Christmas.
It is just too cute.

Penguin and Reindeer Snow Globe

So I snuck in one more
project before Christmas time
(Well, actually two)
and I absolutely love them.

Two sweet characters to grace my couch
for Christmas and maybe the
whole winter.

They are so much fun to play with.
I keep catching the kids
tipping them over and 
watching the snow falling
around the penguin or 
the reindeer.

They are so much fun, 
but really hard to take 
a great picture of because of the light always 
reflecting off the vinyl or the glitter.

If you are looking for a fun
and different pattern, 
you can find them as a set on my

I am discounting all 
of my Winter/Christmas Patterns Half Off
until December 26th
including this newest pattern. 

Have a Very Merry Christmas!!
