A Finish and some Stash Enhancement

My husband and I went to visit my daughter this past weekend. On the way there, I hand sewed the binding on my hexagon quilt. This quilt is done! done! done!  It even has a label already.

 The quilting was done by Cathy at Eagles Wings Quilts. This is the first time that I have had Cathy quilt one of my quilts and she did a great job!

There are feathers in the border and an all over pattern in the hexagons.

We have been having record breaking warm temperatures here this past week. My daffodils have been tricked into thinking it is Spring, even though it is only the last day of Winter!

The crocuses have bloomed already and are starting to fade already! This picture was taken last week.

On our way home yesterday, we stopped in to see Pam at Mad About Patchwork. Pam came and did a trunk show at the London Friendship Quilters Guild last October and brought along her fabric to our meeting. She has a delicious array of wonderful bright prints and most of the Kona Cotton colours in her online store. I did some "basement shopping" to enhance my stash... It was hard to resist all of these wonderful fabrics...

My purchases:  Lush


A dresden plate pillow kit:

A book:

Another Fat Quarter bundle of animal prints and some co-ordinating solids:

And a kit to make a baby quilt: (the brown is for the diamonds and the yellow is for the binding)

I also purchased several yards of Kona White just to have in my stash. You can never have enough white on hand!

Pam would love to have you come and visit her virtual store!  She has signed up to be a vendor at our "Harvest of Quilts" quilt show this October so if you would like to shop in person, come to the show. (October 23-24, 2012 at Rowntree United Church in London--save the date!)

I am adding the binding to another quilt tonight and will post a picture of the finished quilt once I have it done.

I received a fabric postcard in the mail last week from our postcard exchange at the LFQG:

The strips of fabric are woven and cut out in the shape of the Easter Egg!  What a cute idea!

I am off to machine sew that binding...

Happy Sewing!
