Birds and Bees: Sneak Peek #1

Hello Friends!  I am happy I get to play with RJR‘s Garden Frolic fabrics again for a second quilt:

I am also happy because the sun came out today… you may recall my mentioning of not seeing the sun at my little corner of the world for more than 1 1/2 weeks a few posts ago.   I thought it most apt to show you a preliminary picture of my Birds and Bees quilt.  So far you only see the bees in one of the blocks… the birds will show up later. :)

I did receive a couple of quilts back from editors — am waiting for some free time to do my own photo shoot of the quilts.   Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying a lovely autumn/spring day wherever you are!  Hugs!

Kittens in the Flowers: Final Sneak Peeks

Happy Monday, Friends!  After lots of sleep, I think I am finally feeling more like my old self.  In between headaches, I did manage to complete Kittens in the Flowers:

Some of you noted the “blue arcs” (aka water) coming down on the flowers.  I actually hand quilted the water with cotton embroidery floss to make the water appear more prominent.  Let me just say, I have LOTS of admiration for hand quilters.  My hand quilting friends out there, my hats off to you!!  Now as to the source of the water, that will have to remain a secret until the quilt is officially featured. :)

Speaking of “kittens”, curious mind wants to know if you have ever played with puzzles similar to the one shown below.  My husband promises me he hasn’t never seen anything like it growing up.   Growing up in SE Asia, I certainly did play with those block puzzles that make multiple pictures using the different sides of the blocks.  It took me a while to locate some for Miss Baby to add to her heirloom stash.

That’s all for now, Friends.  I have a few things to check off my to-do list before I head to bed.  Have a great week!  I look forward to hearing from you.
