Lamest excuse ever.....

I will admit it, I have been a terrible blogger!
I think the term is super slack!!!
I am going to blame my Iphone. Huh? wait, I'll explain...
See, I check all of my emails on my phone now and I also read all of my favourite blogs on there too. The problem is that it is such a pain to leave comments and stuff using the phone that I think, I'll get on the computer and comment on that. You know what I mean?
But then.... I never need to get on the real computer anymore because I have already checked my emails and blogs etc...
So, No blogging and no leaving comments for friends on their blogs.
SUPER SLACK!!!
I have been sewing.
I finished the Freckled Whimsy quilt along.
I quilted a tight stipple in the white sections and left the coloured pieces alone. I love how it turned out! It was more a test for me to see how much control I had while I quilted the centre of the quilt.
I am pretty excited about trying new quilt techniques now! Any ideas???



I also started and finished a quilt top out of one of my Botany Jelly rolls. This was a kit I bought.
It was supposed to need 2 Jelly Rolls cause those corners were supposed to be mitred but I went with the easy answer and did them this way and cut a few strips from the yardages I had and only needed 1 Jelly roll.
I love this top and I cant wait to quilt it. Such a good size, I think it is about 73 inches square.

This next quilt was copied (eeekk!) straight from one I saw on Flikr. I don't usually do this but I just loved it and I had the fabric. I Love it just as much now that I have sewn it too!!!
I figure that as long as I credit where the idea came from its more like sharing than stealing yeah?
Have any of you made a quilt just like one you've seen? No imagination necessary? I'm not the only one am I???
I think that is all I have photos of at the moment. You are just gonna have to believe me when I say that I wont be gone so long this time!

Well done Mrs Kelli! I love the quilting on the first quilt - you turned a gorgeous quilt into a sensational one. I love the New Wave Quilt by Oh Fransson as well! I made this one a while back and it was a great one to piece. I love the fabric choice.

Thata girl! You are back with a vengence. Three quilts??? You are a machine! I love the quilting on #!- fantastic! And yoru new wave reminded me that I have one sitting, basted, needing some quilting love and attention to finish it off. One of these days, eh? Nice to have you back! But you gotta get commenting- I miss your wise cracks!

The freckled whimsy quilt looks awesome! Love the tight stippling. I'm putting together one myself and am tempted to steal your idea if I ever get it finished. And I can't wait to see how you'll quilt the new wave quilt.

Hi, I linked to your blog from Obsessive Crafting Disorder. I love the quilting on your Freckled Whimsy quilt, if you're looking for other methods I have just discovered The Free Motion Quilting Project she has some great quilting ideas.

Love the quilting! Nope, most patterns that are sold I can replicate in my sleep. ;) Love the colors you picked!
