happy harvest

Elephants are working hard, harvesting apples and pears while their friend, Turtle seems content to watch with no intention to help! Her eyes are only for the fruit ;)

And a happy sky with balloons floating on the top. After adding borders, I noticed there is no batting for this baby quilt. I am hoping it will come in the mail next week. 

In the mean time, I am playing with Little letters for an Alphabet quilt along at Temecula Quilt company blog. These blocks are tiny at 4.5". They are so easy and quick to sew. I hope you can join in the fun ( ' u ' )

Have a lovely weekend!


apples are in season

We already see leaves turning yellow here, that made me think of sewing these apples for a baby quilt.I opted to paper piece them to get the right size for sashing.. they are only 2 inches.  And a cute apple tree fabric found in my stash to complete the theme! Don't you love these bunnies playing hide 'n' seek or enticing with yummy apples, both green and red!

A friend sent me this yellow fabric with tiny flowers. I love how it became a bright spot for this quilt bringing back memories of her. If you look closely, there are also piggies in striped shirts wanting to say hello to you  ^ o ^

So glad to be here with a patchwork project after a long absence! Hope your summer has been tons of fun with more time for sewing than I did ( ' v ' )

Thank you for stopping by!
