Meet Shirley….


Shirley is the newest member in our Wednesday’s Hand Quilting group and boy can she quilt!  Look at the Block of the Month quilt that she is currently working on!!  It is stunning…and the pictures do NOT do it justice!

P1030938 P1030927 P1030928  Aren’t the colours perfect!  Once a month, Shirley gets a package in the mail and everything is included. Make sure you click on the pictures to enlarge the blocks…you will be so impressed with Shirley’s corners!

A picture is worth a thousand words but all I can say is WOW!!  I took a ton of pictures so that you could see how stunning it is!  Not only is Shirley a wonderful quilter but she is also a very nice lady…the perfect addition to our little group!

A WIN SPOTTED!!!  I know, I usually report on a give away in this spot….but I just had to report a WIN! 


I won the pattern to this gorgeous quilt and pillows!!  Isn’t it beautiful…it’s called  Teen Dreams! I can’t wait to make this quilt because apparently if you sleep under a Teen Dreams you’ll wake up younger!  Now I can go for that one… Thank you Rose from Threadbare!  I’m LOVING this quilt and pillows.  I’m already feeling younger!

Have a marvelous Monday and Happy Quilting!


  1. I love feathered stars. I took a class once and learned how to make one without any inset or "y" seams. Never finished. Ugh!

  2. That is FABULOUS! I'm so jealous that her corners look like corners, and the fabric is just lovely too...acyually its just amazing altogether!

  3. Please pass on my compliments to Shirley - a gorgeous quilt! and lucky you! what a pretty quilt pattern you've won, and nice added bonus - waking up younger - does that mean you would now have more time to quilt???

  4. Lovely quilt, and a lovely lady too, i can only echo your comments, WOW! another talented lady.
