Jordan's Quilt

Last year I decided to make all the grand kids big girl/boy quilts for their bed. For the girl quilts I used Cora Queen of the Sea. The fabric choice pretty well decided itself. While I was in the fabric store one of the customers was showing off her quilt. Love at first site. I had to have it!! So I bought enough for two quilts. Fast forward to November 2017 and I have all four made and their backings however could not get it together to get them quilted. I toyed with the idea of sending them to my cousin to long arm but why should my bad planning be her headache! Fine, I will give them for birthday gifts. Jordan's is first up.
 Love the colours!

 I pieced the back from my stash.
 I thought I would free motion quilt sea shells. Not so great but super fun.
One quilt finished.

Sylvie's Table Topper

We moved from our 2 bedroom condo to a 5 bedroom house on April 1. I loved my condo however it was getting small for the 4 of us. We have been living together for 3 years. While Robi was younger it was very doable, however now he is 4 it is too small for all of us. So we purchased a multi-generational house with my other daughter and son-in-law. We went from 3 adults and one child to 5 adults and one child. I have a suite in the basement, supposedly so I can sew. I have not yet dragged out the machine.

In the condo, Sylvie would come in every two weeks to clean. She has been taking care of us for 10 years and is like a part of the family. We tried to get her to move with us but it is too far for her.
 As a thank you for all her care I made her a table topper from some of my favourite fabrics.
She is thrilled! We miss her terribly!!!
