Halfway to Christmas-Open Line Friday

Poinsettias, PhotographyGood Morning, Quilters!

Do you realize we are just six months away from Christmas?

One of our readers mentioned that she is working on Christmas quilts for her guild already!  (Suzy Webster–you are amazing!)   I wish I could say I was that organized!

If you plan to make any quilts for Christmas, it’s not too soon to start!

POINSETTIA

I was delighted on our recent trip to Hawaii to see Poinsettia growing in the wild!   As a Minnesota girl, I thought all Poinsettias were grown in containers wrapped in green and red foil for Christmas! (just kidding….)

This little Poinsettia quilt was one of my first quilts to “go viral”!

If YOU are stitching Christmas projects in June and July, you might like the Poinsettia tutorial HERE.

Doodle the Wind

Good Morning, Quilters!

It’s a windy day here in Minnesota!

But the waves don’t stop the boaters out on our 10,000 lakes!

Let’s join the fun by doodling!

I doodled large Waves and Wind and then added closely spaced filler…

Be sure to check out the tutorials–there are some “tricks” to stitching these gorgeous motifs!!

I just had to splash it onto some fabric…

Love it!   (looks a little odd with the Snowman in the upper right corner-LOL)

I think we’re onto something…

What about YOU?

What’s on YOUR doodle pad today?  Anything worth trying to stitch?
