This was so much fun to make and I used the left overs from a quilt I made for my sister using The Caroler line of fabric. I also drew all the feathers on then free motion quilted them and I just love the way it looks! I feel like Im getting so much better at this free motion quilting! Ive come a long way from my first time and I love it! The second picture is of the quilting from the back before I put the backing on.

After I finished the ladies quilt for my niece I took a little break. I had been working on that quilt and some other things since July so I decided to enjoy Christmas and New Years and just relax. So for my New Year resolution I decided I will try to use up my stash of fabrics and get through some ufo's I have sitting around. So far Ive made two pillows using some string pieced blocks that I had sitting around and the wonky house wall quilt. I think I will make some dresden pillows with some of the dresden blocks I have too. Pillows are so fast to make and are just great accents for any room! Plus they are small enough that I can get in some free motion quilting practice and I love "almost instant" gratification too!

Made this cute little quilt to hang in my sewing room. All the blocks are each made by a different talented lady that I met through swap-bot. We each made 10 blocks and mailed 1 block to each of the 9 people in the swap. I didnt add my block this, just the lattice and binding and then I did some more practice free motion quilting. Around the homes I did some curly miandering and then in the lattice I did some flower and vine miandering. If you click the picture u can see it larger and maybe see the quilting better. Isn't is just so cute! I love these wonky homes!
