Feathered Star

Yes, I've finally started working on the Feathered Star, a machine embroidery project by Hoop Sisters which I fell in love with the first time I laid eyes on it at The Cloth Castle last year after seeing their wall hanging.
I'll share my progress as I work my way through it but the nice part is I can be doing the machine embroidery on my Husqvarna Ruby and quilt away on the Bernina, so it's called double duty.

Focusing on WIP

Time to scale back on taking on new projects to finish older but still loved ones so I've made a conscious decision not to add anymore to my list.  So this is what I've been working on lately and its been so long since I've seen these projects that it feels like new ones so lucky me.
This is a seriously fun fabric and I really like how it made up into these cute Dresdens so another WIP now finished.  Woot, Woot for me folks.

Now this is going to be a much longer project to finish but look how far I'd come before filing it away but now I'm back at it and excited to finish machine appliqueing the shapes and putting the blocks together.

This is my game plan and I cant wait to show you a finished project but make no mistake I won't be doing the machine quilting because that's not my passion.
Enjoy your weekend readers and I hope you get to do whatever is your passion.

Tuesday Quilt Club at Cloth Castle

Another great day of show and share was held at The Cloth Castle this past Tuesday and as always there was a great array of fun quilts, placemats and even some knitting so enjoy.  I apologize for the blurry picture but that is life.

 A finished Bonnie Hunter Celtic Solstice quilt, isn't it still my heart.

Hope you had fun and a Happy Mother's Day to all and I'll be spending my day doing a little quilting then off for some sun and a trip to Bamberton Park with a picnic lunch of sorts.

Victoria Quilt Guild Show

Here are some of my favourite quilts from the Victoria Quilt Guild show which was held this past weekend and if you don't mind the first picture is of mine and I'm afraid the lighting was very poor for the size of this quilt but nonetheless it is of course my favourite!
this is for my oldest son and the colors represent his palette and unfortunately you can't see the magnificent job that Jennifer Watson of Quilting As Desired did of the machine quilting.
Enjoy the following pictures which there are many of but all worth a peek.

I hope you enjoyed yourself and it's great to know that quilting in all aspects is alive and thriving here in Victoria, BC.
