Say Hello to My New Friend :)

I have been so busy the past few weeks ... and here is the reason why!  Meet Qiyana (her name means clever and crafty) and she is a Janome Memory Craft 8200. To say I am in love would be somewhat of an understatement :)

She has revived my love of quilting and I have made 2 new cot quilts in the past couple of weeks.  This one is based on "The Crazy Quilt" by Missouri Star Quilt Company(

And this one is based on "Goose in the Corner" by Happy Quilting (

Now that those quilt tops are safely packed away in my UFO basket I have started on a quilt for my son Jordan.  His favourite colour is blue and I have picked a Hunter's Star block which I hope is manly enough for his liking!  This is what my design board looks like at the moment:

And there is a frighteningly large pile of squares which need to be sewn, cut, ironed and trimmed into half square triangles to make the blocks:

When it's finished it will be a queen size quilt ... he is lucky I love him as much as I do :)

Happy Easter everyone ... I'm off to make some more HSTs :)
