Hello May!!

Hello friends!!  As usual, there is a lot to catch up on since my last post!  I have a few finishes to share with you and will share some "works in progress" on my next post.

First Double Delight quilt is finally, finally finished!!  Woohoo!  This was probably one of the oldest UFO's I had and I'm so glad to check it off the list!  I really love this one! maybe this one was a little older!!  This was a free block of the month from a blog called "Capricorn Quilts," I believe.  I think it was 2007-2008?  Each month, the pattern for the redwork/embroidery part was released and it was so fun to follow progress of quilters around the world.  I think this project was one of the things that got me hooked on blogging.  :)   Anyway, I've had the top all done for quite a few years and now it is finally quilted and checked off the list!!  Both of these projects were on my UFO challenge list through the local guild.

Another little UFO...this little mini is from Primitive Gatherings.  Again, I had the top done, but it needed quilting and binding.  I love this!!  :)

This is the 2015 Buttermilk Basin mystery.  Another monthly free stitch-along.  All the wool is from my meager stash, but I think it turned out pretty awesome, if I do say so!

This is a better picture of the colors...and you get to see my win win!!

 For my daughter's birthday...I made her a Broc-kitty pillow.  She has a cat named of course, she needed a broccoli pillow!!   This picture is kind of washed out...

This is a better one with her kitty!

So there you are...all caught up with the quilty things in my life.  I'll share some works in progress in my next post...I always have plenty of those!!  :)

Hope you all have a wonderful, quilty week!!



  1. Michelle! What a great post, with your beautiful work...Hey, I am working on that Primitive Gatherings freebee too!! Congratulations on so many pretty finishes!

  2. So many wonderful finishes! I remember the Capricorn Quilts sew along blocks. Mine are still waiting to be assembled into a top. I always loved how you set yours together. Love the Broc Kitty pillow, too.

  3. Great finishes! Love the kitties and broccoli pillow.
    Smokey is proud of your work 😎

  4. Double Delight is gorgeous!!
    I just got the pattern for that little Primitive Gatherings pattern last week. Yours is so sweet.
    Great job on the Buttermilk Basin quilt. Mine are still just a pile of blocks.
    Oh, the Broc-kitty is so funny. Did you design the vegetable kitty all by yourself? Love it!

  5. Wow...look at you go! Every one is beautiful. Congrats on all the UFO's. Love the kitty pillow. I think I have a couple of those patterns kitted up.


  6. You've had lots of finishes lately! My Double Delight is in my "to be quilted pile". After seeing yours, it's moved to the front of the line after Spooling Around.

  7. Your Double Delight is beautiful! Congratulations on getting it finished! :0)

  8. Double delight is just as incredible as your spool quilt. Wow.
