Day Off?

What do you do when you have an unscheduled day off? I found out this morning that I didn't have to go into work so this is what I decided to do:

I have been dying to start this quilt made with Bali Pomegranate Batiks. The colors are so pretty and could even work well as a Christmas quilt.Now that it is all set on my wall, I can start working on getting blocks sewn together. Hoping to have it finished in the next couple of days.

Ready to Quilt!

Did you ever have something that just grabbed you and you were so excited about it that you just had to go with it? That is what happened the other day. I saw a fabric panel while going through my fabric and immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. I posted about it last week-Remember the red and green Christmas quilt I had up on my wall playing with the design?

Well...this is it now:

Every thing came together so beautifully. The fabrics worked great together and the design made it go fast. Now I have to get it quilted and bound, then listed in my shop: PatsPassionQuilteds on Etsy

New Works in Progress

Today I decided to start a new project for my Etsy shop. I realized I didn't have very much in the way of Christmas items and wanted to make something blue so I pulled out a terrific Christmas print of blue and green Christmas bulbs and went to work on a set of place mats. I love the touch of silver in the prints.

Of course, while I was looking for the blue fabric on my shelf of Christmas fabrics I ran across an adorable Christmas panel and an idea popped into my head for a design for a new Christmas quilt so I HAD to put it up on my wall to see if the idea I had in my mind would work or not. It is just the beginning, but I think it will look great.

Just finishin up the quilting on this one


I have finally finished up several custom orders so I have had the time to start working on things for my shop-


This is my first Christmas quilt I am making this year and I have been working on the detail quilting. I hope to have it ready to list on Friday. I found these beautiful prints in a Local Quilt Shop over the summer, immediately fell in love with them and new I had to make a quilt with them.. I have made a couple of table runners from them and finally came up with the design I wanted for the quilt.
