Alicia or she is known as tukidre on Instagram is
Queen Bee this month.  She asked us to make her
this block it is called Rolling Stone.  You can find it over at
Fat Quarter Shop as a free download..  Alicia asked us to 
use Olive's Flower Marker or Little Miss Sunshine fabrics.
This block was so much fun to make and the 
instructions are very easy to follow.  

Hope you are doing something you love today.

I have been wanting a row quilt for some time,
and my BFF Carla made me this quilt top
using some of the blocks from Farm Girl Vintage.

I am in love with everything about the quilt.  
This is row 1 the Sunny Sun Flower. 


Row 2 is the Scrappy Maple Leaf.
Check out the scrappy boarder.  LOVE


Row 3 is the Patchwork Pumpkin.  


Row 4 are these super cute acorns and I 
am in love with the squirrel.  Can you see

Finishes Before Christmas


Hello sweet blogging friends.
Wish the temps where cooler here.  It has
been in the 80's here in South East Texas.
Hope all of you are having a beautiful winter
wonderland.

On to quilty news.


This quilt was just the cutest ever customer
quilt.  The fabric's where sew pretty that I
had to find some of them for a future Christmas
quilt.  My customer asked for snow flakes, and I
have to tell you the snow flakes turned out great 
on her quilt.  I just wish I would of taken a bigger
picture so you could see more.


I made this into a pillow cover for a friend as a Christmas
gift.  It is from Cozy Christmas by Lori Holt Bee In My Bonnet
It really turned out great.  I thought I had taken a picture
of the finished pillow cover but I can not find it.  (must
of gotten side track) lol!

Starting Monday January 16, 2017 Lori Holt will be doing
another sew along called Sweetie Pie.  If you are interested
in following along visit Bee In My Bonnet.  I have a few of
the fabric's you will need for the quilt donnaslavendernest


This is a note book cover I made another one of
my friends as a Christmas gift.  She love's kitties
and Lecien fabric's.  This was sew much fun to make
I think need to start making more of these?

Hope y'all are having a wonderful week sew far.
