January is not as long as you think

 So you think January is the longest month next thing you know you are looking at the last weekend of January! Where did it go?! We barely had any snow so far which is great for a Chihuahua residence.

I posted about this quilt I am working on well I finally have the blocks done and have it on the design wall.

There are only 526 HST triangles but lets not forget I am also going to do a double border of them as well so not done yet.

 So as you can see it here there is lots of space for some groovy modern quilting. I can`t do it myself but need to know who can in the Eastern Toronto-Oshawa area or who wants too.

I think I mentioned in the other post this is from Quiltmaker magazine I am posting the picture because I wanted to show how different a quilts personality changes with fabric choices.

Here are some selfies of Buddy saying enough I want so lap time and me with fabric on the forehead, I did not realize until after that I was also wearing the fabric these are the little corners clipped off the HST
Hope you are enjoying January as much as I did  with theis first project almost completed.

365 quilt

Is anyone working on? I caught up last night got 13 done. it is free and there are over 11, 000 quilters signed up for it. go to the 365 Quilt link and they are also on Facebook

here is what I have so far...and you will love the look of a Chi that needs some mama love.

 these are 14 blocks done already. now the thing that scares me

we are already heading into our second week of January! how does that happen?
I also taught another one block wonder class in the later part of 2015 and one of the students, a total beginner sent me this gorgeous quilt, she was a great student! and look her quilt is just incredible. I hope to see the others as well they all picked great fabric

I put Buddy in because this is the best picture of him

time to post

 I found this pattern as an ad  in one of my mags a while back and really liked it... then leafing through one of my mags I found the pattern! This is why it is so hard to give them up

I finished the first Walking Dead quilt I will post a picture this week but started on the Second Series quilt I love how it is turning out

I had bought the whole bolt of the Walking Dead fabric so i have enough to do what I would like
This is from the Quilters newsletter mag Jan/Feb 2000

As you can see it kinda looks like blades swirling around them.
