Cotton Candy and other Sweets

Finished up the Cotton Candy Quilt top. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter's book String Fling and is the last one in the book. I just love it. I have used all batik and hand dyed fabrics. Some are also hand done batiks by me. Those are extra special. I am planning to keep this quilt for me in the living room. I have loved working on this quilt because I love so many of the fabrics. 

I have added this post to the linky party Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

I have started a new quilt. Yes another on in the list. I won a layer cake a few years back and had not done anything with it. Then I found more of the same fabric on sale for $6.00/m so I bought some more, enough I might also have the backing, binding and a boarder. I am using this simple block. I also did add in just a bit more lime green, te pack had some but not much so I have added a few fabrics not in the same line. It should work well. 

I love the pink bird fabric. 

I have been busy. So busy I have had trouble getting back to my blog, sorry. So last night I was teaching another quilt class. Many Trips Around the World. The photo is from 2014 when I last lead the class for the Leduc guild. This Saturday me and my students will be back at class. We are having so much fun.

Orange Scraps

Here are the Squared Away sampler blocks for the Month of August and the scrap colour Orange. I like how they turned out. Each one looks a little different. On top is the 7 1/2" blocks and the bottom row is the 10" blocks. 

Next up are the migrating geese blocks. They look kind of off tilled. I do a odd angle when I took the photo and then tried to fix it with editing. Just looks bad. Trust me they look good in person. 

See already better looking. 

I have added this post to Soscrappy and her link up party. 
The next colour up is Dark Blue, so I just this weekend I will start a chopping and sorting out my Blues. 

I now have 16 blocks for a hug quilt. It is a group project and I need to get them in the mail this week. I hope it will tell someone that we care. 

Last week we got back from our mountain holiday. My husband took this photo of me. We have climbed on of the higher mountains in the area. You can see we are just above the tree line. There was some light smoke from fires in the area so the other mountains are not real clear. This was about 500 meter above were our camp was. So yes we climbed 500 meters that day. I do not like heights and this was not pleasant for me. I can say I did it but I do not want to do it again. Our dear horses worked so hard. Thank you Jester!
