Clue #2 - Check!

Well I've been able to play a little bit in my sewing room. I'm just at the end of my vacation so I'm dedicating a bit of it to sewing.....who needs a clean house :) So PEI MQG has released Clue #2 in their 2017 Mystery Quilt Along! You can view Clue #2 by clicking here. You really should go check it out! It has been a lot of fun!

Here are my completed blocks for Clue #2.


In other news, I pieced together this quilt top over the last week.


It's a pretty small one for the ones that I'm use to piecing (it's only 48" x 48"). I wrote the pattern up about a month ago. I'm calling this one "X Marks the Spot". Ever since my husband had asked me to make a quilt with this same palette, I have been in love with it. I'm already thinking about variations of this particular pattern :)

Hope you had some wonderful sewing time this weekend!

Back Into the Swing of Things

Well it's been a long time since I wrote anything on here. Some times priorities just change in life. The last 6 months have shown me that. I have spent some time sewing and quilting. In May, I had a wonderful vacation with a best friend of mine helping her get ready for her wedding. I made two quilts, one as her wedding gift. And the other for her daughter who is my Goddaughter. So without further ado, here are those quilts :)

The one for my Goddaughter.




And the one for my best friend and her groom.


I've worked on a few other projects here and there. Some I cannot share on here but someday I will be able to :)

I also decided to join another Mystery Quilt Along. This one is hosted by the PEI Modern Quilt Guild. 
You can read about it and Clue #1 here.  

Here are the fabrics I chose for my Mystery quilt:

And my HSTs for Clue #1 :)


I'm looking forward to doing this quilt along. There are different options as well. You can piece a traditional quilt or a modern one. Then there are different sizes as well. It's worth a browse over to their blog if you want to have a bit of mystery in your life ;)

I wanted to say Thank you to some bloggy friends who sent me a couple of emails to make sure I was doing okay. The sentiment was greatly appreciated! I'm hoping to blog a bit more consistently now.

Hope you all have a good week :)
