Canadian Flare Small Quilt

This is my new little quilt design. I am still working on getting the pattern worked out. I never see very many small quilts with a Canadian flare to them, so this will be it. The size is 36 x 39 inches and I will post the pattern as soon as I get it finished.
I am hoping to get this posted by the middle of February so please check back then. I think it will be fun doing this.
Also, if you are a pattern tester could you please contact me.
I will more then likely post this as a series of blocks to complete rather then the whole pattern at once. Stay tuned.

New Small Quilt Pattern

There are 2 versions of this small quilt. One with applique and one without. Whichever you choose.
2 Versions of the same little quilt - Overall size is 31 by 31. I am using 9 inch blocks

The non-Applique pattern is available here

I am just working on this pattern and will post as soon as I get  the blocks together . I  have also been working on the Erin Russek quilt block that she just posted. Check it out here if you have not seen this one yet.

I really like her quilt blocks and want to do all her patterns, lol, but I guess One Quilt at a Time.

Some Mug Rugs and working on the BOM's

 So, I have started my BOM's but of course now I see way too many that I want to do and I know I will never get them all done. Plus I was working on some mug rugs for my mom and sister. The one pictured here is from a Craftsy designer " The Patchsmith" and I just fell in love with it. You might want to check out her other designs - really delightful
This one is from the Blogger Girls BOM
Another one that I finished
 This one is one of two that I have made in the Sugar Block Club at Stitchery Dickory Dock.
This one is from Dixie Diary.

New Pattern

Ok, I have just started designing some patterns.  This one prints out as a pdf over several pages and fits onto a 24 by 30 inch piece of fabric. You need to make the folds both ways on the fabric to find your centre points and work that way.
Also, you can use whichever color scheme you prefer.

The color pictures and pattern are here :  Hummingbird Pattern

I would very much appreciate if you use my pattern that you post a comment here and also maybe a link back to me as I will be doing  more patterns if any interest is shown in them. AND PLEASE send me a picture of your finished piece so I can post here.
