Yesterday I wrote about 'A Change of Season', Bonnie Sullivan's newest book!  I love it!  SEW many wonderful projects in this book but it was the 'Christmas Stockings' and the Autumn Quilt on the cover that caught my eye!

Isn't this Fall Quilt spectacular!!

Recently I bought another FAVOURITE book...found it in a quilt shop in Ottawa... and I haven't been able to put it down!  Such eye candy...
Oh man, Kathy Schmitz knows how to draw, design and stitch!

Just check out the workmanship!  Amazing!

So there I am with my TWO new two new FAVOURITE BOOKS...both were released within months of each other, both written by two very talented and accomplished artists, both pertaining to quilting...and then it dawned on was an "AAAHHHA moment...the moment  when I remembered that these two ladies are SISTERS!  Yup, they share the same DNA...the same gene that makes them wonderful quilters, the same gene that makes them incredibly talented artists, designers, stitchers!  I bet mom was a quilter...or maybe grandma...or maybe BOTH?  They had to have been influenced by someone to both take off in the area of quilting.  Maybe they influenced each other!  Regardless, I'm so happy that they both use quilting as a forum to release their creative talents!  We are the ones who benefit...we are the lucky ones!!

Their mother must be so proud!:o)

Both of these books are available on Amazon and Connecting Threads...just sayin'...

Have a Sunny Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P

When It Rains...It Pours!!

When you write a blog there are no secrets!  I am THRILLED to tell you that my middle daughter and her husband are expecting a BABY BOY in FEBRUARY...:o))) 
When asked what kind of a baby quilt she wanted, my DD picked a  low volume herringbone pattern...She didn't want bright, in your face when I found Moda's 'Darling Little Dickens' fabric in Calgary I was THRILLED...this line of fabric has the sweetest soft subtle colours...

SO...I pulled out the pinks and set them aside...

...and whipped up some HST... and presto...herringbone pattern in the sweetest fabrics...EVER!
Yesterday I got four rows together before I called it a day!

 It's going to be the perfect little quilt top for a baby BOY!!

What to do with all those PINK fabrics?

Why put it into the BABY GIRL quilt of course!  My eldest daughter and her husband are expecting a BABY GIRL in JANUARY!!! (Insert happy dance here!!) Yup, when it rains, it pours...and this GRAMMY is DRIPPING with excitement!!   It's going to be a very exciting 2017 for our families, filled with of each!  How blessed am I!:o)))  And you know what BABIES means...QUILTS, lots and lots of quilts....!  Stay tuned...! :o)))

Have a fun Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
