it is a new year 2017




the new year has zoomed in...and machine quilting for my business is always the  main focus but  i am easily distracted to MAKE by everyone and everything !


this happened with the leftovers from my wedge tree skirt that i made at christmas...i love it and hope to finish up something great b4 next xmas



and i got another heart quilt pieced for dawson place ~ snohomishmqg


i love this heart variation ~ the lay out and block variation was inspired by crimsontate and the heart block tutorial is from cluckclucksew


and i happily made  this 8 1/2" block with the teeny tiny triangles left from the heart quilt ~ i have a plan for  this idea  to grow BIG


and  this was also an instagram inspiration from @laurie i love this topsy turvy layout and such a good use of novelty scraps

hopping on this a year late but this #quilty365 got started because it is such an easy carry along applique project  and i was totally inspired by the red on  @maryse's instagram xo
and my experimenting led to a smaller size and hopes for a big fun red quilt


and my lolipop trees is moving along slowly ~ recently finished block seven

i started this pattern by kim mclean march 25  2014

and i just  got started on block eight of sixteen ...at this rate it might be done in 2020


most exciting of all ~ i am going to #quiltcon2017 in savannah, ga. in fourteen sleeps!! this a sneak peek of  a very special finish for my quiltcon friend xo  i am soooo directionally challenged with bag making i could NEVER have made this without the pattern  kidgiddy badgeholders  xo

  this special guy will be two in may ~ love when he comes to visit xoxo

                                    cheers to many finishes in 2017 ~ happy wednesday xo pam

still here keeping it simple

i machine quilted diane's sweetwater table topper with matchstick quilting ~ i am not sure who thought of matchstick  but i thank them cuz it really does look great


this sweetwater backing is perfect for a special valentine project xo
i machine quilted diane's paisley park with a paisley design


joyce's bom star quilt finished up beautiful with swirl and twirl

and so fun to do joyce's bunnyhill halloween in january

instead of prairie points joyce used a big fat ricrac

janie loves bunnyhill too

  raining cats and dogs is very sweet ~ so many fun details to stitch with bunnyhill

and i used waterworld on janie's crabapple winter wonderland ~ i love the way an edge to edge works on this quilt

and janie's wool applique finished up great with a few continuous curves



   happily sewing away ... still love my job machine quilting for others and being inspired by so many.
i am not much of a blogger these days...i share more of my every day here on instagram  


 happy snowy monday  from the PNW xoxo
