WIP Wednesday

 I am working on a a quilt for my nephew. He is turning 10 and so into playing a game on the computer. It is called Minecraft. It is a game where you place blocks and built worlds. It is an easy concept and a lot of people play it. One of the bad creatures is called a Creeper. He loves them!! His mom asked if I would make a quilt for him. Here is my "map".

Here is the top half.

The bottom half. 

Sorry for the blurry picture. Do you see the dark green in the wrong spot next to the mouth? 

As I was trying to get blocks moved to get the dark green where it needs to be I ended up with a lot of doubles. So now back to the seem ripper to see if I can switch things around. HA HA Almost done too!!

Thank you for stopping by!!

Maniac Monday

 My two mug rugs are finished for the swap I singed up for through Quilting Gallery. She has just started up a new swap. 

My September partner for The Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap requested surprise flowers. I kind of went for a fall feeling.  

Then my October partner asked that the petals be different than the centers. I hope she likes them.

 I also have been working on a gift for my nephew. I have 1/4 of it finished. Boy that is a lot of green.

Maniac Monday

What a week. I have been sewing up a storm. And relaxing. I have big things in the works but I will have to keep it a secret for a bit longer. I can't wait to share!!

I have been getting caught up on my Saturday Sampler blocks. Here are two of them. I love the fun brights with the black.

 With Halloween coming so quickly I wanted to get two of my UFO's done and out of the way. I have had these two wall hangings for so long. I got them out and finished them. They are so cute. The top one I still need to add a few buttons to. The bottom one has 3D shutters that flap open and closed. I am going to give it to my nieces and nephew. I know they will like it. 

As I was doing all of this fun sewing I got a little careless. I cut my thumbnail with my rotary cutter. Luckily it only got my nail. No blood. You can see inside that black circle where the blade went. I am so glad it stopped. I would have cut the top of my finger off!!

I finished another UFO. Well Three. I have had this pattern from the very beginning back in 2010. It is Twice as Nice... Plus More from Eleanor Burns. When I started these little quilts I knew that my first Granddaughter would get them. I am glad to have them finished before she turned 21. HA HA!!
 Speaking of my Granddaughter. Here she is in her little Boise Bronco's cheer leading outfit. She is so cute!!

I hope that everybody has a great week!!

Maniac Monday

So I have been busy this week. I have had some good times in my sewing room. I dug out a couple of Halloween UFO's. This is how far I am on both. I am done with the tops. I need to sew on buttons and things after I quilt them. They are both patterns from magazines. I love this top one. There are window flaps that when they open...
 there are some Halloween friends hiding inside. 

This little one is called Little Witchy. She is so cute.

In PQA this year we are doing a monthly mystery quilt. I have finished my second set of blocks. 

I have decided on a lay out. Now I am just sewing them together. Then on to the border step.

One last thing. I made a Button for a Flickr group I am a part of. It is the Mug Rug Revival. We are currently on swap #3. Stop by to see when we are done if you are interested in swapping mug rugs. Oh and here is a look at the Button. 

I hope everybody's weekend so a good one.

A Little of This and That...

I received my September flowers from my partner. All the way from Denmark. I love them. They are so pretty!!

I have been quilting my second baby blanket for my Granddaughter. This is the largest of the three quilts. I have all of the quilting done now. I am having a lot of fun playing with FMQ. I can't wait to have these done.

My partner in the Appliqued Coaster Swap sent my coasters. I love them. They are so cute. 
 Here are the backs. They are great!!

For my PQA sewing group I mad 8 of these little block for the row I made for my partner. She loved it.
