Fall Mini Quilt Swap--Quilting Bloggers

I've been lazy.... I have had this one completed, sent out, and my wonderful swap buddy Cheryl has received this creation but I haven't posted it yet! So here it is! I found a similar quilt online and decided to change it up a bit... This is what I came up with! I loved doing this swap because the quilt was small enough that I could use my tabletop machine to quilt it. I have gotten into the habit of quilting on the long arm so much that I forgot how fun it is to just play around on the tabletop!
I sewed apples in each of the 4 corners...

Happy 2010!! And Another Thread Catcher!

Christmas was so unbelievably hectic that I just didn't have time to blog! Here are a few things I made while I was away..... I put this Abbey Thread Catcher together as a gift for my mom. She loved it!!! I thought it turned out pretty good!

I also put together quite a few more of the these heart shaped potholders. They are so easy to make!!! And they are always a hit with the family...

Oh yeah! And I changed up the blog a bit. What do ya think?? Here's hoping that 2010 will bring much happiness and creativity! :)
