Benartex has a new line of fabric, Home Grown by Nancy Halvorsen, that is so beautiful. 
I feel so lucky to have been able to join this blog hop and sew with Home Grown!

of the panel in my quilt , 20 fat quarters, and two different fabrics for borders and binding.

Shine, Love, Create
Quilt measures 42" x 52"

Birds, houses, and flowers...cute!

Such a pretty heart of flowers in this panel!

My Day At The Dust Off A Quilt Book Blog Hop

Bea had a great idea for a blog hop...dust of a quilt book we've had for a while and make
something from the book. The hardest part of this was deciding which project to make from
 the gazillion books I have stashed here or there. Since I enjoy designing and sewing applique,
the book I dusted off for a project was "Adorable Animal Applique" by Margie Ullery.

I got the book during a class I took at a Bernina store that was being taught by the cutest lady,
Margie Ullery from  Ribbon Candy Quilt Company. She's funny and very gifted
 in creating applique designs. There's lots of cuteness in this book!

This was the quilt I made at the Bernina class from her pattern, Hoots Hollow.

It's been an incredible week full of wings, wings, and more wings...I loved it!
I nested in my chair every morning with a cup of tea (but no bird seed) just to take my time

I went a little steampunkish with my wing project and had so much fun with it.

The quilting was done by Quilted Works...they did such a great job!

I can't wait to make another steampunk project. It really was enjoyable to make!
