I am also preparing my next project for machine quilting. Just found out recently that my niece is having a baby boy in November, so of course, gotta make a quilt! I made this herringbone earlier this year in preparation. It is made from the leftover fabric that I used in the wedding quilt from last summer. I have the back pieced and now it just needs to be ironed and then spray basted to get it ready to quilt. My niece and her husband are bee farmers in New Brunswick, so of course, there will be bees in the quilt.

I have made 9 bedsized, handquilted samplers over the many years I have been a quilter. Recently, my lovely little guild decided to quilt along with Sew Mama Sew's Block of the Month. Perfect! I have been wanting to make a sampler quilt with modern style blocks. I love the blocks. These are the fabrics I have chosen from my stash. I was going to go scrappy at first but I do adore the simplicity of the fewer colours. So, I have...from top to bottom...all Konas..Glacier, Graphite, Limelight and Silver for background. I will be cutting into this luscious pile shortly.
I am linking up with the Needle and Thread Network. Stop by and check out all the Canadian quilty goodness.
I hope you had time to do something quilty today!
