A Mini Tree Finish and Get Together

I finished this little Christmas mini on Friday. Just in time to give to my friend Fairy Floss Stitches who is celebrating a birthday this week.

It measures 11" x 14". The pattern is one of Amanda Jean's at Crazy Mom Quilts and is called Mini Trees. This pattern is only my second PDF pattern purchase. I have only just discovered how instantly gratifying it is to pay now and have the pattern on your inbox as fast as you can open it ready to print and start sewing.

I was able to give it to her yesterday when the Cassilis Quilters got together. Susan, Kylie, Lea and Julie were there. Stitching by the fire and eating a delicious lunch on the lawn when the day warmed up a bit.

Lots of fun!

Linking up with Finish It Up Friday and also OPAM.

I did manage to do a little bit of sewing last night to join everyone during Friday Night Sew In. My EPP Scrappy Star quilt has grown from this...

to this...

Four rows almost complete (plus a little bit). I have lots of stars ready to add. Most of this progress was made during the road trip we took at Easter.

I am using up scraps from my stash and a few friends have also donated some of theirs.

Pop over here to see what everyone else got up to.

Violet-finally a finished flimsy and FNWF

 I finally finished piecing my 'A Legacy From Violet' quilt. This quilt was constructed using the English Paper Piece method and measures 94" x 97".

I never thought I would EVER finish this quilt. I always thought it would be one of those eternal UFOs. I have been working on this quilt for about nine years now. It has been banished to the back of the cupboard a few times ....usually for months at a time. But, I am pretty excited to think that it will be set up on my quilting frame soon, ready to hand quilt.

 I am so excited that I have taken WAY too many  photos. So, I will stop typing and just show you.

I am linking up with Amanda Jean at Finish It Up Friday and Jessica at Monday Morning Star Count.

Oh...and Friday Night With Friends.
Got a couple more stars stitched last night.

Don't forget to pop over here to see what everyone else got up to.

Have a great weekend.
