Easter Wreath wallhanging

 I threw this together last weekend. I used some scraps and some new Easter fabric that I got on sale at Hancock. The pink dot was on clearance. I used it for the bow and binding.
 I machine quilted it with my regular foot.

I used this Easter Egg fabric from Hancock for the back. It's very bright. There's the pink binding. I hung it up as soon as it was done.


 I used nothing but scraps for these placemats. Scrap batting, scrap binding and scrap bits and pieces for the random piecing.
I did random quilting as well. I used my silhoutte machine to cut the letters. I made them one day for my friend at work for her birthday. I gave them to her to use at lunch time. She took them home and said they were too nice to use at work. I thought that was a very nice compliment. 


I silk screened this pillow for my friend for Christmas. She is an avid reader and she is retired so she stays up till all hours of the night reading. I saw this phrase on pinterest I think.

Christmas tree panel

 This was a Christmas tree panel that was in a stack of Christmas fat quarters. I added white, then the candy cane stripe.
 Here I added a second white, then random lengths of green strips. then green with red squares and finally longer green strips as the final border. I love how it turned out.
I think I'm going to quilt this one myself as it is a manageable size to work with. 

Christmas Cactus Quilt

 I started this quilt before Christmas and finished piecing before Christmas too. I went together really fast. It's a queen size. I have to make a backing for it and have it quilted.
This is a view of it with the borders. I used the reds and greens from a Christmas fat quarter stack and some other greens and reds too.
