We interupt......

" your regular scheduled quilting...."
 Last year, I bought this great bundle of Eclectic Elements, with no plan for it.
Just needed to have it....you know how it goes!
Then I bought some Textured Solids.
Again....no plan.
So, last week I decided to join the two together and make some PLUS blocks.
Loving them!!!
We did these PLUS blocks for our Happiness Circle @ do. Good Stitches in December, and they are so quick to do.
For February in the Canadians Quilts {bee}, Chelsea asked for this block, and I was happy to interrupt my own, to make one for her. Colourful cross and low volume background was her request...

Also for Chelsea :-), are 2 star blocks for our Happiness Circle @ do. Good Stitches.
 This is an original pattern from Quilter's Cache, called Cathy's Star.

Fun to do, and I love the triple star effect.
One last thing before I go....
I am in a swap called Sew Delicious Sweet Pouch Swap.
My wonderful partner, Janine, from Australia, sent me a huge pile of goodies along with the cutest pouch!

Thanks, Janine! I'm overwhelmed!
Here is the pouch I sent to her (forgot to take a photo of the goodies!)
Okay, now back to my regular scheduled programming quilting!
