off to a good start ~ chic country with the quick curve ruler xo

it is sewing time again and i am loving this
took me awhile to pick up where i left off , i made every possible mistake, had to do some MORE  picking but i am finally getting it !

i took a class for the quick curve ruler chic country pattern  w the wonderful jenny pedigo sewkindofwonderful  thru the seattle modern quilt guild [pictured here with the smqg class blocks behind her]  i definitely benefited from the class cuz i am sooo directional challenged xo

indian summer jelly roll three finish

i have a special christmas gift finish for isaac and ani xo

i love this simple quilt

machine quilted w the kadinsky panto from digitechpatterns  ~ bound with the perfect polka dot and backed w flannel

jelly roll three was made mostly with indian summer by sarah watson from art gallery

sewed with my alberta sisters on the farm at harvest time  ~ i LOVE sewing with the sisters ~ this is one of my favorite memories and photo of 2015 xoxo

i love this fabric so much that even the little bits were saved for some fun improv sewing

i made three little special somethings

each measuring about 14 by 18" and quilted up w the  geo path panto

i love that we three will have a special memento of these special quilts ~ makes it a bit easier to give these quilts away xoxo 
                                   happy holidays ~ only only two more sleeps xo pam
