Inspired Part 2

I had mentioned in a previous post about having something sewn for my groups Show and Tell, well here is project number 2. I have had this panel done for awhile, I had blogged about it when I got it finished.

I had some owl flannel fabric left from the previous quilt, so I thought this quilt top also matched that flannel. 
I have moved my pinning process upstairs as I have more space there. 
I thought I would go out of my comfort zone in the quilting department and it surprised me what I came up with, it turned out quite nice. 

I also put another Dr. Seuss quote on the back of this one as well.  I just think they are such cute poems. 

Now I have a few things for Show and Tell, all you need is a little inspiration.


 The ladies I work with have planned to get together next week and I thought I have nothing for Show and Tell. I have not sewn in a long time as I have been distracted with the running season. I even sat down to sew and watched a Triathlon on TV.

I have had 2 panels hanging around for a looooooooooooong time and this weekend I had planned to do something with them. 

I had used my twister ruler and used some leftover fabric from a Hungry Caterpillar Quilt I had made for a little boy and I finally finished this one.  I also had 5 meters of a very cute owl flannel that I thought would go perfect with this quilt. 

I recently discovered Dr. Seuss quotes which are so cute and I put one of them on the label of this quilt. I got out my fabric pen and it had gone dry, I quickly headed down to the Quilters Stash to get myself a new pen and carried on. 

I tried a quilting pattern which was new for me, I tried it on the border of this quilt and thought it worked out well. 

Now I have one for Show and Tell.

Long Lost Quilter and Blogger

I am still here, I have not quilted or wrote a quilt blog in a very long time. For the summer I am distracted by my other passion which is running. I had been training for the Miles with the Giant Half Marathon which was Sept 23rd here in Thunder Bay. I have a running blog which you can check out if you like it is: 

Now that the running season has slowed (although I plan to run the Goofy Challenge in Disney in January) I will be getting back into quilting right shortly as the temperature is slowly dropping. 
I am so thankful to those that have come back to my blog over and over, I promise you will have new content soon.
