BUSY TOWN around here



we had a fun camping memorial weekend in seabeck with this bunch xo

scenic beach is the BEST ~  the most starfish i have ever seen

the wild rhodies were in bloom everywhere and the beach combing was awesome xo



managed to get a bit of customer time in this week .... teri designed this sweet owl quilt for a friend ~ and i got to do some fun custom ... xo

and this alphabet PKM sweetness made by julie is so pretty...

i machine quilted it with loop the loop by patricia ritter and i love it ... the pattern reminds me of sew ... a needle pulling thread xo
i broke a needle on this one and it popped a few small holes....but i was able to applique a triangle

and a circle on the damage it caused.....phew @#$%^@!!  julie was so understanding ~  she even delivered the fabric i needed to repair it xo


and this sweet bundle of liberty from duckadilly  arrived today ~ i am sharing the fat eighth bundle with my friend kay so it is very affordable ~ this fat sixteenth is so precious xo

i am making the spool love quilt from the liberty love book with this treasured fabric

and i have a SURPRISE UNEXPECTED fat quarter bundle of pretty potent by anna maria horner ~ when i went to visit my friend kay today she was feeling super generous with her newly arrived  half yard cuts .... she asked if i would like to share and i said YES PLEASE
and i am off in the morning for a craft weekend in the key peninsula with some girlfriends...i am all packed up and ready to go...looking forward to some creative girl time ~ happy weekend xo pam

STARS AND HONEY ~ bloggers quilt festival


hello and welcome to my little corner...xo pam



this  beauty was made for my son and ani....they love blue and they helped choose the  string star pattern.....the beginning and inspiration found here
it was super spectacular from the very start
   
                      with some super serious intersections in these 8 pointed stars ....more here


  it even took a trip to mexico with me....and i finished the last 4 blocks there xo
                       i sewed old school ~ finger pressing ~ no iron ~ no rotary cutter ~ no mat ~ just me and esther , my 1959 feather weight ...i was never sorry that i carried her on that flight xo

    
there was a  special instagram from puerto vallarta
    HAPPY =  sewing outdoors on the patio overlooking the cobblestone street of our casa del gato hermosa xo

    and i Took lots of beautiful photos xo
over a year of LOVE went INTO piecing these 9 extra large blocks
decided on an easy peasy panto for machine quilting and i LOVE it xo

i used muslin for the backround, backing and binding xo

i stamped a special label for these two ~ when i asked them what they would like for christmas 2013 they requested a quilt knowing it was a lot to ask they said  it should be for a few birthdays and christmas combined....i loved that they appreciated and wanted a quilt made by me  xo



and as i said i took a LOT of photos...with blue skies and sunshine and pepper...our family cat [ this photo is extra special cuz we just said goodbye to this sweet girl on the 14th of may ~ she was fifteen] i was actually quite annoyed with her here but now  so happy to have this beautiful shot

nine 28" foundation pieced stars with a small border ~ this quilt finished up 88" square after it was washed xo

this quilt is currently in it's new home with my son isaac and his sweetheart ani being well loved and that is what it is all about xo
