Quilt Doodle DoodlesI would like to update you on a couple of things... 

Remember to keep posting your photos of your Quilt Doodle BOM 2014 quilts to the Flickr group! There are more prizes to be announced. I am also working on embellishing mine. I will be posting pictures shortly. 

I have a new grab-able blog button. If you post my grab-able blog button on your site, I will send you a free PDF pattern of my NEW Freshly Baked Pie applique. Just in time for the holidays. So here's what you do.... grab the code for the button and post it on your sidebar. Email me the link to your blog and voila.... I will send you the PDF copy of the pattern in thanks.

I don't know about you but I'm starting to panic over the Holidays... the added snow that is outside my window is an added reminder that I've got lots to do before Christmas! I have nothing made yet gift-wise. Yikes! Here's some quilty inspiration for you...


The BOM 2015 will be starting the first of the year.  The quilt design is in the works and will be a collection of all my favorite things! There will be applique blocks, absolutely NO paper piecing.... embroidery if you want, (Embroidery sections are optional) It will not be as big as this years quilt. It can be done 'scrappy'.... it will also be a mystery from month to month. The grab-able button is below.

Happy quilting,

A Wilson Weekend...

It has been a Wilson weekend. He had a puppy spa day on Friday and got a zippy new haircut. He looks so handsome. I should have watched the weather, we are forecasted for up to 6" tto 12" of the white fluffy stuff . Wilson may look handsome with his new haircut, but, poor puppy is going to FREEZE.... so I was busy today making Wilson a doggie coat. I found some camo polar fleece and I think it would look nice as a doggie wrap. I found a pattern that I altered to work with HERE, I printed it up on 11 x 17 paper and still needed to enlarge it for Wilson. I added some velcro, so it's an easy on and easy off item. (I don't need to wrestle with my dog over a cutesy pet sweater)

Before making his snappy poochie poo jacket, I baked. I baked an apple pie for my hubby. I made some cinnamon rolls for Thomas. I also make a crock pot of wild rice soup - along with some homemade rolls. The house smells so good. Wilson's nose was going into hyper drive. Well I couldn't leave my four legged boy out so I whipped up some homemade doggie treats. I found a RECIPE HERE. They're call 'woofies'... I can see why, Wilson wanted to woof them down. They are a hit. I will certainly make them again.
May I have some more.... please...
(How can I say no to those sweet eyes...)

'Woofies'


I have also drawn names for the Black Cat Crossing giveaway! My Three winners are; Cucki,
Vrooman's Quilts, and Bonnie. Congratulations! Each of our winners won a PDF copy of Witchie Poo's Shoe and also included a PDF copy of my Pie Applique too! I also want to take the time to thank everyone or left sweet comments. I read them all and try to answer them all. If you didn't hear from me, do know I appreciate you stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

BOM 2014 ~ Borders!


 Happy quilting! I'm late posting and I apologize.... Halloween at my house is a big deal. We love carving pumpkins and dressing up. I even made creepy Zombie meatloaf!  Let me share a couple of fun pictures....


Now back to our winter themed quilt....I'm sure many of you that are quilting along with me have your strips all  sewn together on your quilt, isn't it cute! Now it's time to put on the borders, and borders are totally optional. You can do them as I have suggested or do your own. It's up to you! Back in January I posted a listing of supplies recommending 1 yard for border one and 1 1/2 yards for border two. I've got the borders added to mine... 

The directions for adding the borders and some fun embellishments can be found for FREE Here and also on Craftsy until the end of the year. This will give you time to get your quilt all done. This project would be beautiful made up for the holiday season and would make a wonderful gift! Now let me talk about embellishments. I am going to quilt my quilt before I do some of the special touches like sew on buttons and yo-yos. I will reveal the finished quilt along with it's name by Christmas.  On the printed directions you will find a snowman you can add by your cabin, a wreath for the door, snow for the roof and chimney.  There are also special touches for the cocoa mugs. It's time to have fun and make this quilt your own!  I hope that you continue to have fun with this project as you finish it up. I have some more goodies to give away so stayed tuned and keep on posting those pictures!
Remember to post your progress onto the Flickr account for a chance to win the prizes! If you blog about it, please email me a link so that I can attach it to the Pinterest Board I have going for the BOM 2014.

Let's have a blog hop in January. Let's have a virtual show and tell!

Happy Quilting,
Congratulations!

Black Cat Crossing

I have had so much fun making projects using this delightful fabric from Mayowood Studios. I picked up my fabric from The Fat Quarter Shop.  I spent all weekend drawing and sewing away. Thank you Madame Samm and Wendy at Why Knot Kwilt for hosting this spooky, quilty fun! I love Halloween and this blog hop gave me a wonderful opportunity to create. Let me share with you the quilted items I put together for this blog hop in celebration of my favorite holiday.... Halloween.
My first project was a table runner featuring a black cat
waiting for the Trick or Treaters... (I love the tiger striped pumpkins I found at the market last week!)

Then I made a cute wall hanging featuring an adorable
black cat peeking out of a Jack o Lantern....

Out of some of my scraps I made this
wonky pumpkin coaster, or mug rug. I used
different sized buttons to add to the wonky-ness.

Halloween isn't complete without Witchy Poo's Shoe....

Thank you for visiting. Now.... on to our giveaway. Leave me a sweet comment, become a follower, etc for chances to win a PDF copy of my 'Witchy Poo's Shoe' applique pattern. Make sure you get your email address to me if you are a no-reply blogger etc. or I won't be able to contact you if you won! Wilson and I will pick 3 winners.

Wilson and I wish you a Happy Halloween!
We will pick our winners for our spooky giveaway November 1st. Below you will find the list of who I get to share today with. Be sure to stop on by and give them some quilty love too!

Happy quilting,

October's Prize


It has been another busy month for me, I don't know where the time is going! This weekend I am enjoying a mini quilt retreat at mom's. We've been having a blast sewing, haven't gotten tons done but I have a couple fun new things to share with you soon. I did post a couple of new patterns in my Etsy and Craftsy stores. I've been slow posting this month also because I have been battling a virus that my computer has come down with! Let me just say, hackers in general are horrible individuals and there will be a special place in hell for this group of people. Enough said....

Let's get back to some quilty fun.... loving the lights... also love, love, love seeing the finish rows sewn together! Keep on posting in the  flickr group! I have a fun giveaway this month.  I picked up a cookbook from my favorite quilt retreat, Cozy home. This book is full of down to earth recipes. Many of them I have enjoyed on retreat. The cookbook also features pictures of Colleen's beautiful home and sewing areas. You will also get to meet her dogs, Gracie, George, Lilly and also Tessa.

 I am also still looking for/ waiting to hear from my two winners for the PDF copy of  Geese Around the Sun. from Soma. Please email me!


 Remember to enter the giveaway for this awesome prize, post your pictures of your finished Quilt Doodle BOM 2014 blocks or sections to the Flickr Group, Blogging about the Quilt Doodle BOM 2014 and send me a link for a chance to win this awesome cookbook from Cozy Home Stitches. Links to all of the past patterns can be found HERE. It's been fun to see the completed blocks and sections.  Here are some of the pictures that have been posted so far....
