It's been a while...but I actually finished a quilt!  In my own defence, the 440 was in the hospital for an extended stay while having a very expensive part replaced.  She's recuperating at home and we're getting to know each other all over again! (As a side note...don't put off having your machine serviced.  I learned the hard way)! Anyway, here's the finished quilt...

I couldn't resist ordering a FQ bundle of Paperie (despite our crashing Canadian dollar). This has got to be some of the sweetest fabric I have ever bought.  This quilt was made with my go-to pattern - what I call a simple 3-patch.  (If you would like the block instructions send me an email!) I had enough bits and pieces left over to cobble together another top which isn't quite done but I will post a picture - promise! It feels great to be back in the saddle again!
I will leave you with this adorable picture of my big guy watching me sew...
The machine you see is my new Janome! While I don't normally name my sewing machines, I'm calling her Janet! I broke down a bought a little machine for the dining room table.  Sometimes I feel isolated in my little sewing room!
Have a great weekend!
Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish It Up Friday!


  1. Hey welcome back! What a cute quilt. Peek-a-boo Stewie!

  2. What is the fabric range you used? Very pretty.

  3. What a lovely layout for those pretty fabrics. I have them and was wondering about your "simple 3-patch"... Are you able to share the block instructions (I could not see an email address to ask you).
