A Kittens Tale Finished (236)

Sew, here's A Kittens Tale in all it's glory, displayed outside in the perfect lighting diffused by the slightly cloudy skies (since it's been raining in Calgary all the previous week, it was a nice site to not have rain on this special day) and the perfectly fresh smelling air, surrounded by quilt lovers from all over...Thanks so much to Nancy for volunteering and looking after my special quilt.

A Kittens Tale was such a fun project each month a cute design full of character and whimsy, plus the fabric line, Feline Friendship made this quilt. After taking Ana Buzzalino's class in January, like the post I did on Journey of a Quilter, I put the lessons taught to the test in this quilt also, with a lollipop flower in each blade of the pinwheels, as well as in between each yo-yo flower cluster in the border.  Scattering the rest of the quilt with dense quilting including shells, pebbling, and feathers I feel like I'm "getting it" the free motion quilting:)

Do you do your own quilting or do you take it to someone special to complete for you? Why?

 

How about this scrappy back?

A big huge thanks to Nancy B for volunteering at Heritage Park and supervising the location where my quilt was hung, sew appreciated!!

Okay, do I look like a proud quilter here or what - I'm loving A Kittens Tale and I hope I've inspired you to maybe enter a quilt into Heritage Park one of these years, need help in doing so, just email me:)

Journey of a Quilter, A Kittens Tale (118)

So...I have a few adorable completed blocks that I finished last week and love them.

 A Kittens Tale Block, Month 3

Journey of a Quilter, Block 5

Bee Amongst the Daises, which is the swap I belong to online with Quilting Gallery, it was supposed to be in the mail yesterday but I'm not quite done AND I want it to be adorable, so sorry in advance but I'll make it worth your while my sweet partner :)

I've also blogged about the latest fabric painting class, the trunk show with Carrie Nelson of Schnibbles AND Heritage Park check out these blog postings under my Quilting in Alberta blog.

Most nights this is me, hanging out designing, stitching, in my favourite place usually Tig's beside me :)

 

Until next week, have a happy and creative weekend!
