Christmas presents

I am making doll quilts for one of my brothers twin daughters. I used the tutorial at Fairy Face Designs. The tutorial is by Kirsten at Gemini Stitches

What a match

I have been working on my simply small project by Sherri at A Quilting Life. It is a gift for a friend so when I saw a mug she would like the other day I had to buy it. When I got home I was surprised at how perfectly it matches the runner I am making.

Great Book

I bought myself a new book and it is beautiful. It is by Cindy Lammon of Hyacinth quilts. I have already picked the project I want to make but will have to wait until after Christmas to start.
I made this little mug rug using a tutorial by Leigh at leedle deedle quilts. I love it and want to make a larger version using the Australian fabrics and batiks again. Maybe with bigger squares though!

Couldnt Resist

I couldn't resist starting a new project. It is by Sherri at A Quilting Life. She is designing projects using 2 1/2 inch squares. I don't have any mini charm squares but have lots of charm packs and scraps to use. I started straight away with some Kaffe charm squares but need white for the background. I hope to get some on the weekends and finish it.

A Runner

I have been wanting to make the charming chevrons quilts from Christa Quilts blog for ages but was not sure about getting all those half square triangles to line up enough that I would be happy with the result. I sometimes find my ability does not meet my expectations. Then I saw this runner on Saltwater Quilts and decided to try my chevrons in a runner first. I used charm squares which were bigger than the pattern by Candace and I love how it looks. Charming chevrons will have to wait till the new year but I already have my charm squares picked out
