Valentine Graffiti

I have been very inspired by the Stencil Blog Hop and created some small pieces about hearts.

 This second piece, below, was cut in half. I used half of it to create a small zipper bag and the other half hung on my front door the week of February 14th.

Cats On Quilts

My sister made me this little accordian book for Christmas called "Cats On Quilts". She used many of my blog pictures to create this little masterpiece. It is very cute and very treasured. She is extremely talented with the crafty projects. Thanks Betsy!

 Here is a new quilt, we call Dazzler, it is brick reds and lime/ochre greens. Very traditional pattern yet so visually striking due to the color choices. I really really like it.
 Free motion quilted, sort of a flower design that runs on the diagonal in two different directions.
 I have switched to machine sewn bindings a while ago. This time it is a thick/double thread blanket stitch.  Okay some points got cut off (see above). Oh well. Below is the back, a few blocks didn't make the front so here they are on the back also with leftover squares.
