My very first blog post ever

On a recent trip to visit my sisters in Alberta....sister Susan found this post ...we fell in love and before we knew it we were shopping rural Alberta for blues and greens ... many miles and seven quiltshops later.....the quilt quickly turned into queensize for Joyce and I....Susan deciding on 2 lapsize instead.....I named mine Irma Blue after our first fabric stop,Creative Klutter in Irma . Irma is complete and she had a couple of babies too ......made from her leftovers ..... this sweet little quilt on the left inspired by Red Pepper Quilts is for the sweet little boy next door who is expected very soon...along with a little doll quilt for his big sister and a little something extra on the right just for me....



I found this perfect green/blue stripe sheer for my bedroom window....and made these pillow shams to match...... the quilt was machine quilted on my long arm freemotion and the pillow shams were done with Dancing Daisy panto by Timeless Quilting Designs....I am having a love affair with this color combo....


And coming soon..... a sweet little baby girl quilt featuring this FreeSpirit Westminster Lovebirds fabric that I picked up yesterday from my favorite little quilt shop Keepsake Cottage in Country Village. Check out shop owner Julie Stewart's blog @ Quilts4Julie. The quilt will be for my niece Michelle who is expecting a baby girl in September.....

  2. Aunty Pam... what a wonderful blog! I absolutely adore the lovebirds fabric (you did not have to make us a quilt but I'm so excited) and the green and blue queen size with the new pillow shams looks so clean and fresh. What a nice change for spring and summer!! I'll be sure to bookmark this page and check back periodically to see what other quilting adventures you have up your sleeve!
