This quilt top was made as a round robin project.  I made the centre block and the it was passed around a group of 4 others from my guild.  I made it into a quilt when I needed a gift for a friend going through chemo therapy for breast cancer.
   Well Christmas is over.  I was under the weather for a couple of days but I think that I am on the mend.  I think maybe the egg whites was off that I had for lunch on Dec. 26.  Starting to feel a bit better now.  Hope to get down to my sewing room day for some sewing.
   Happy quilting,

Five of the folded star large pot holders that I made before Christmas this year.  Some are gone to other owners but some are still in my kitchen.  I gave Dave the second one down, he liked that one and I kept the last one for myself.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  Kids were home and had 2 great meals together.
Happy quilting to all and to all a good night.

These little stockings were made by guild members and filled with toiletries for our local women's shelter in Strathmore.  They were so easy to make.

This is the block that I made with the provided fabric for my guild's next charity raffle quilt.  I have the finished quilt top further down in the blog.  You can see the corner of the quilt top in the above picture and actually my block is visible as well.
We are in the deep cold at the moment but at least the fog of last week is done.  Where is the time going, only 3 days till Christmas.  Hope everyone reading this has a really good day with family where possible.

Guild raffle quilt, Puffin quilt

This is a wonderful quilt art piece by Gwen R. from my guild. The little picture she worked from is at the top left hand corner.
   We had a great family dinner on Sat.  It was potluck and turned out really great. Santa visited the kids as well.

This is our new raffle quilt. Ann S is holding it in the picture.  She sewed all the blocks together into a top.  It is now ready for quilting.  The block that I made is the butterfly, top row second in from the right.  Tickets will go on sale sometime in the new year(2016).

   Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas season with family and friends.

folded star(purple) and xplus block

The two x plus blocks were made for Block Nov's block 2015.  I did not win.
The middle block is a folded Star for a pot holder. That one is still not done and I will likely keep it
for me.
Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy Quilty New Year
