Happy New Year!

Happy New Year all!
I am posting with my completed steps for Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt with Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville
We are all waiting, hoping to get the next step early as Bonnie has done previous years!

Here are only 10 or so of my completed blocks of each step...
So far, Clues 1, 2 and 3 are completed.

Clues 4 and 5 are close to finishing the completed units, but my yellow is running out, so I am waiting to see how many more Clues there are and how much more of the yellow is needed.  If I need more, now will be my chance to add a similar flour for more unified scrappy look.
This year I have really used up scraps and leftovers!sure feels great!

Anyway, Happy New Year all!
I am planning on a better 2015 than the previous 2 years have been for our family!
Take care, Leslie

Merry Christmas to One and All!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

I know I have been gone for a very, very long time, but lots of changes at our home.

I am adding pictures of Christmas quilts from around the house and linking up with Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville!

Sorry if these are blurry, but I am a little shaky and still have't got picture taking on my IPad conquered.
Anyway, wishing you and your loved ones All The Best over the Holiday Season!
Take care, Leslie

A Christmas Candle Mat!  Original design unknown, from a Minnesota Shophop kit, but I added trees and stars from a 2007 Lisa Bonegan arrival in Quilt Magazine.
This is a tree skirt I started in 2006 and finished in 2010!  This is from Thimbleberries fabrics Nd the poinsettias and holly pieces are satin stitched machine appliqués with rayon thread!  It is about 60 inches round.
