Happy #nqdsi!

First congratulations to Joyce, Marion, bizystitches and sewing stitches for winning a copy of the pattern of choice from my craftsy pattern store. I used a random number app to pick them.
So now today -

It's international sewing day, I have the day off and the quilt show has opened up most of its shows to all for free! There is a sew in on twitter #nqdsi to share in all the quilty fun you may be having today and quilting Jenny is having a giveaway so I'm chiming in with a copy of my "welcome my little chickadee pattern" to a random commenter. Tell me what you are doing quilt - wise today - and yes fabric shopping and quilt show watching counts ;-)

I just watched episode 111 with Ann Fahl on the quilt show. If you are a cat lover you MUST watch it. Go to the quilt show here to sign up for the free week end.


Even Summer (the sweet) is mesmerized by Alex and Ricky


I'll be working on quilting this. Yesterday my machine was fighting me all the way but last night I don't know what happened (the quilt demons must have left the building) but now she's purring right along.

Quilt on!



  1. your stones look fabulous! I watched a video at the Quilt Show and thought of the gal who does the Irish stone quilts and paints her fabrics. Check it out, she is good.

  2. I love the Stonehenge piece--but I think I'm especially entranced by the way you've done the sky. Very cool and inspirational... And sweetie's nose is just begging to be scratched, so give her one for me, will you?

  3. It's beautiful! Glad your demons have left in time for #NQDSI!! Thanks for linking up!

  4. Love the idea thats its not us, or necessarily the machine but quilt demons!
    I adore the henge stones......wonderful background quilting too.
    I have completed a hand knit, garter stitch blanket for my forth coming grandaughter so was out fabric shopping to cut bias strips to sue as an edging.
    Of course I couldn't decide which of 3 fabrics would work best, so bought all 3...........just in case lol
    Logical right?

  5. Beautiful work and cute dog! Happy quilting!

  6. Happy International Quilting day to you too! Your quilting looks wonderful.

  7. Summer is so cute. I am a cat lover, too, so I'll have to catch the 111 show while it's free. Thanks for the info.

  8. I'm happy you could join the virtual sew-cial to celebrate International Quilt Day. You certainly captured the spirit of this sew-cial. Lovely bird pattern!
