2013 Shop Hop Quilt

Hello my quilting friends, today shop hop has begun and it has been fairly busy. Y'all don't want to miss all the fun that everyone is having. We have 10 shops in the hop. Check out the post on my Facebook page under The Quilting Niche' for more information. I'm also adding a pic of my shop hop quilt and I hope y'all like and if you leave me a comment I will have a drawing for some goodies after Shop Hop is over.

I'm Back I Think

Hey it's Debbie here, can you believe I'm back and I will begin to start doing post again. I've gotten my website up and running so I will be able to post on my blog and do more with my new website. This is just a try out so that I can get back into the grove of doing a post and adding pictures.

I leave you with this quilt that I made for last years Shop Hop. Working on new quilts right now and will post as soon as I get them finished.

Will be back soon

December Daily Day 2

December 2, 2010

Not sure if y'all have seen this quilt but haven't had time to finish it with the binding, so I've decided to put the binding on it this weekend. This quilt is called "Easy Does It" and the pattern is available at The Quilting Niche'. This is a very fast and easy quilt to make because it is made using a Layer Cake from Moda called Fruit Cake, along with a little extra yardage. I'm hoping to have it on my bed really soon so that I'll be able to enjoy it during the Christmas Holidays.

Project this weekend besides putting the binding on the quilt will be to put Christmas decorations out and go choose a real tree. I thaught that it would get done during the Thanksgiving holidays but fat chance, had to many other projects in the works.

Today was spent looking at fabrics that will be coming in during the middle of 2011. Can you believe that I've already ordered fabrics for Christmas 2011.

One of my other projects is a 2010 December Daily Journal that I will journal in and include pictures, christmas cards, favorite holiday recipes, and much more. As soon as I have the pages bounded I will be taking pictures of them and posting them also. Here is just a sneak peak of the cover.

December Daily Day 1

December 1, 2010

Hello, y'all! Today I will share with you a project that I bought when I was in Houston at Quilt Festival. The project is a wool applique on cotton fabric with some embroidery stitches. This project really went together fast and is ready for me to display for Christmas. I liked how fast the stitching went. It only took me about a week to get it all done. I decided to frame it instead of putting it in a pillow.

How did your first day of December go? Do you have your Christmas shopping in the bag? I will try to post something each day of December for a December Daily post.

Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop

This months challenge was Christmas Tags. The minute I saw these stamps and dies I just had to have them. This is my first time participating in a hop and especially a stamping and paper hop because I do more quilting than paper crafting. But I needed some fast and easy gifts so here is what I've been up to. Hope you enjoy and I had a lot of inspiration from all the Papertey Ink design team.

If you need any additional information just drop me a line and I would be glad to share along.

New Toy

I've been so exited because I got a new toy. I'm the proud owner of an ipad by apple and I just love it. I'm presently posting using my iPad. Hopefully this will work.

I'm also getting things together for the Hattiesburg Quilt Show for October 8, 9, and 10th. I'm trying to get some additional projects finished to bring with me. I will have lots of 25 fat quarters for $25.00 and/or 25 for $35.00. I'll also have lots of layer cakes, charm packs, and jelly rolls along with lots of patterns to use them up. They are actually fast and easy to make.

Till next time

love to read quilting blogs...wish I had more time to quilt/blog, blog/quilt

I had Patrick do the drawing and here is the pics.

Over the weekend Patrick and I took a trip to Birmingham, Alabama to attend a market for children's clothes (patterns), fabric and more. I truly enjoyed this show. They had lots of childrens clothes ideas with embroidery and applique designs.

I would really need a time stretcher, so that I could get more things done in a day. I have come up with about 3 or 4 more layer cake quilts and can't wait to get started on them. Hope to have another giveaway soon. Maybe on the project I'm presently working on.
Till next time
