My Blog Hop Day


Today it's my turn to take part in the Hugs & Kisses Blog Hop with these other fine ladies.








Rosemary B @ that other blog


Karma Willow Designs -- that's me

So I have been working on a cute little pink gem that I will be donating through my Guild. I started out with some scraps from my stash along with items from the guild.

the backing and binding


Before I got the binding put on -- Hurley took the quilt for a spin. (man I love these guys).
I also have been working on a few items recently and wanted to share them with you.

This one is just the top and waiting to be finished. I have had a few comments on this bridge so I thought I would share a little about it being that this is the holiday of love -- it's a bridge in a local park that was donated in honor of a couple that had been married a long time that have since passed away and there is also a wooden swing there in honor of the love they had for one another and the community.

This is another quilt I have completed for the guild.

So in honor of the holiday of love, here are a few more things that I love and use for inspiration when quilting. First off I am obsessed with the color pink when I was redoing my craft space I recovered a few of my items in bright pink suede and have a large pink rug (I'll be posting a room tour in the future). I am a nut for Alice in Wonderland especially the Cheshire Cat

I also love owls and this is one that my mother in law sent me for Valentines day and it came in the mail today. It's so cute and guilty looking. (and for some reason the picture keeps loading sideways).


I found this fabric in my stash and hope to be using it soon in a scrappy trip along.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to become a follower and check out some of my other projects going on.

PS -- I was just notified by http://thepeachpatch.blogspot.com/ that I have been selected to get one of the traveling stash boxes so I will be posting that ASAP and you don't want to miss out on this opportunity because these boxes travel all over the USA so who knows what all it will include.

  5. Your little quilt is very, pretty, Katie, with a clean modern look in the way you place the fabrics. I am trying hard to learn that negative space concept which seems so effortless in your quilting. Looking forward to your scrappy TRA. Thanks for sharing ... :) Pat

  21. Am I the only person who sees no photos on your post? I don't know why! I have tried about 8 times to refresh and reload the page, but still no photos or even little boxes for photos. I see your teaser on the previous post. I will come back later and see if I can see what you have done. I'm sure it must be wonderful judging by all the comments!
