All finished my exams! YAY! Summertime means lots and lots of reading, hanging out at the cottage and of course sewing!

I have two adults students who have each recently finished their quilts.
This one is cross-stitched alphabet blocks, done for her Grandson.

 This quilt was done by one of my other students, a photo memory quilt for her Granddaughter.

Very proud of both of their quilts! And I know they will be forever cherished by their grandchildren.

In my last post I mentioned that I purchased some elasticated thread and a jelly roll. I have been playing around with my elasticated thread and I will soon post pictures of what I've done. As for the jelly roll, it is a work in process right now but coming along beautifully. My Mom is actually the one working on it, very proud of her! Pictures to come soon!

Lindsay Creative Quilter's Guild

On Monday April 16th 2012, I had the wonderful opportunity to present my trunk show to the members of the Lindsay Creative Quilter's Guild. What an incredible group of women! I had such a good time and felt very welcomed by all.

A big thank you to the women of the guild for their invitation for me to attend their meeting and for their encouragement in my future endeavours. Also a big thank you to my parents for accompanying me on my trip to Lindsay, for holding up my work during my presentation and for being ever so supportive.

Looking forward to my next trunk show!

Today I bought some elasticated thread and a jelly roll...I have some ideas up my sleeve! Unfortunately I will not be able to actually try out my ideas until the end of my exams.
I will be free to play with my sewing machines on April 26th....and then the fun will begin!

It has been a little while since I have posted anything, school has been getting in the way again! Final exams coming up soon and then this semester will be over! Yay!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter long weekend.

I have lots of pictures to post today of some of the Easter things I have made in the past few years.

I hope they are inspiring!

Easter place mat, the basket is paper pieced and the flowers are machine appliquéd. The scalloped edges were the most challenging part.

I made this table runner several years ago, the pattern came from a book filled with spring-themed projects. It is one of my favourites.

This is a miniature Easter wall hanging. The basket, eggs and bunny are machine appliquéd.

This wall hanging consists of four simple paper pieced blocks that I got off of Electric Quilt.

I will be doing a trunk show at the Lindsay quilt guild on April 16th, I'm very excited! It has been several months since I have done a quilt show, and I have lots of new things to bring with me!
