Quilt Alongs

Here is my completed quilt top for the Charming Girls Quilt Along. I need to practice my free motion quilting before I do this. So of course I should be concentrating on that and not starting anything new.
So here is what I am doing. First a sew along with the Nancys. I used to sew with Nancy and Miss Nancy when I lived in the states. Sometimes we just met and sewed, other times we all made the same project. We have decided to do the same project from a far. We are going to do a disappearing 9 patch with a difference that Nancy spotted at Jo's Country Junction. You end up with what looks like charm squares with sashing and cornerstones. I am using orientals with grey sashing and black cornerstones.
OK the next 2 things are over at Elefantz. Jenni has lots of great patterns and ideas. I am going to do her little bird challenge.

And her Daisy-Do BOM. This is the thread and fabric I have chosen.
I have finally starting reading Twilight and must admit to being hooked so reading now instead of sewing!!


  1. I need to send the grandkids home tomorrow before I can post ANYTHING! Gah...they are driving me batty.. so much noise, so much confusion...

    Miss Nancy and I have our stitching fabrics also... too much to do...no time..

  2. You are so far ahead of me. I hope I can catch up. Love your choice and your little bird. Well done, great work. I better go catch up.

    Have a super great day.
