Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, Market giveaway (entry 42)

Hi everyone, short but sweet this week as I'm planning the baby shower for Diane and baby Zach. Yes the quilt top is finished, back is cut out and ready to be basted and quilted, can't wait for next week so I can finally reveal it.

Here's a little something I whipped up for one of my friends. I've improvised on the embroidery tree and french nots, what do you think, doesn't it twinkle?

I also saw this great giveaway I thought I would pass on it's from a Blog called Sew Take a Hike isn't that too funny?

Another Blog giveaway (and this is a weekly one) from Michelle at Quilting Bloggers

Friday Give-Aways from the Quilting Gallery

Working on some stuff and ideas for Christmas, pin cushions, napkins, going-green bags for grocery shopping, aprons, magic bags, and a few more things up my sleeve :) Any ideas from you that you love to make at Christmas that you would like to pass on as I need some inspiration..

Have a great weekend Ladies, Valerie


Vals Projects (entry 32)

So I have so much on the go right now...

My Freebie 15 from last year 09-10 here's where I'm at on the completion process

1st my pile of 3" x 1" scraps left over from the center blocks and some of the sashing

 I want to create a piano key style of border but because I just have these little scraps to play with I'm taking this process slow so Ideas will come to be incase I don't have enough fabric

here's them pieced in twos - isn't this just a little pile of cuteness?

Here's the comings together of my Threads in Hands Class - my Home or Yours that I've been working on...There is 12 of these blocks - complete!

I decided to do my triangle borders different then the original and I added this 3D border - what do you think?

I haven't totally decided on these hearts in the corners - I'm torn about making them bigger or keeping them the original way.

Another project I'm working on...

baby quilt for one of my friends babies - here's the colour choices I can't really say too much as this friend might find out and then it won't be a surprise...we'll see how far this goes


For my next one I will have at least 2 tuffets finished, I want to make another apron, get the border finished on my log cabin & start my two mystery quilts...oh yeah and do the 1st freebie 15 block from these year...adorable.


Gracie's Label (entry 13)

Hi Everyone, I finally got a chance to stop by my SIL's and get some snaps of Gracie's label I did on her quilt (see previous blog for pictures of Grace's Quilt).

I found these pre-printed quilt labels through the company called Possibilities and I added some extras to it. I'm so addicted to french knots turned out so great.
