To Sell or Not to Sell.....

That is the question that I have been toying with over the past year or so.  Well I finally have made a decision or planning too ;-) to start selling some of my quilts, wall hangings, table runners etc. !  I will let you all know when the big reveal will be.  I'm in the process of opening a store on Etsy and really excited about this adventure.  

Part of quilt making for me is the love of creating and not to mention the awesome colors of fabrics I get to play with everyday! :-) That leads to piles of finished quilts, wall hangings, and table runners. (Not a bad thing,  but I may need a bigger house very soon!) ~Don't see that one happening ;-)

I have so many ideas flowing in my head that it's hard to get to sleep some nights. So maybe it's time to share my creations with the outside world.  That's a pretty big place, and kind of scary but it's going to be exciting too!  

So please wish me luck, and let's see where this next adventure brings me.

In the mean time I'm going to try and keep my blog more up to date with exciting adventures and of course lovely quilts ;-)   Thanks, ~ Tracy 

Hexagon Love...

My Hexagon Garden quilt is still in process and gaining flowers everyday.....

A couple months ago I started a new quilt with the idea of using up some "scraps" that I have collected over the years.  I think my scraps are reproducing faster then I can turn them into scrappy stars :-) ....

Free Motion Quilting Link Up!

I'm super excited to link up for the very first time with "The Free Motion Quilting Project"!  

A few items to get me started on this year's quilting project! 

One of my quilty goals this year was to gain more confidence with my machine quilting.  I have always either tied or hand quilted my quilts. Machine quilting looked so scary and I always thought I had to have a huge long arm machine to actually do a great job! Boy was I wrong!! Thanks to Leah, her wonderful site and her classes, machine quilting has become extremely fun and exciting for me!  

Here's to another great year of Quilting! ~ Happy Quilting! 

New Year and Mystery Quilt Revealed!

Happy New Year!   

A nice quiet New Years Eve, watching movies and staying warm :-) Miss Jasmine enjoyed herself after a day of play in the snow.

I have also been working on my version of the Celtic Mystery Quilt  and was pretty excited to see the layout coming together.  At first I wasn't too sure on my color choices as I set the blocks up on my design wall.

 I took a step back and started to piece the blocks together to see if I could find some good points in my color choices :-) So far so good, It's not my normal color range but I'm thinking the colors may work together after all.... I'm beginning to see the inner blue circle, that was my main goal :-)

Once it's quilted, it will be loved and enjoyed..... No worries on color. 

Hope everyone is staying warm in New England, it is currently 3 degrees right now and blowing snow..... Burr.....  ~Happy Quilting!

Snow and Mystery Progress

Wow, a couple winter storms and some quilting makes for a great week! :-)  My progress is a little slow on the Celtic Mystery from Quiltville but steady! Still working on part 2 and looking forward to the pinwheels in part 3.  I love seeing all of the variety in colors on the Quiltville link up site, so fun to see how every one participating; is coming along during this busy time of the year.

Part 2 Mini Chevrons- marking and piecing

It's hard to believe Christmas is only a few days away.  Too make it extra special this year, I believe we are having a very white Christmas! The pups are excited to see all of the snow and the boys can't wait to get out of school in a couple of days for their Holiday vacation. Lot's of fun stuff!  ~ Happy Quilting!

Miss Timber enjoying the snow before we shovel off the deck! I think most of the snow is on her :-)
