Rainy Week

After many days of rain I wanted to bring better pictures of my first two finishes for May to you guys. 

Up first is Scout -- this is a great pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew and was taught by my great friend Teri. I decided to quilt it with Chrysanthemums and I love the result that this has on most projects that I have put it on.  
It's not quite big enough for the bed but this one is for me -- so for now it'll do for my sleeping quilt. 

Secondly we have Sound Garden -- inspiration came from a chinese coin pattern called bars of gold in one of the books that I have had for some time --  jelly roll quilts. I pulled all the bar fabrics from my scraps and love how it turned out with the wave /spiral quilting. 

I also tried my hand at making pouches again and I am tweaking my process but really liking the outcome. I got a few zippers the other night and put together these few for the craft event I did over the weekend. 

I also increased the size of the Hippo family this weekend with some finishes -- this is all the ones that I have completed right now with a few more in the works. 

On a different note I am done with outdoor events for the time being and will be focusing my energy on indoor events and updating my Etsy site. I am not an outdoorsy person and with the awful winds yesterday I nearly lost a rack of quilts and my canopy is going to need some repair or replacement after. 

Accuquilt contest is in full swing and I am pretty sure I am out of the running as a winner but I am in the top 30 still and I do greatly appreciate the support and continued voting from this very great community. You can check out my entry here

Much Love and Happy Quilting.
