I won this quilt pattern! This quilt is called Starbursts from Honey, Bunny and Dolls and Craftsy. Also posted on Little Bunny Quilts, as a BOM in 2013. My name was drawn by Shanna and Melissa for A Lovely Year of Finishes for my quilt finish in January. The quilt pattern is a design by Amanda at Honey, Bunny and Dolls. Thank you Amanda, Shanna and Melissa. I am looking forward to making this quilt. I love paper piecing and this will be a fun project!

Hope you had a sweet Valentine's Day. My sweetie surprised me with flowers from the garden, 2 bars of my favorite chocolate from Trader Joe's and a Delft kissing couple.
Michael is a keeper!
Also a sweet Valentine's card from Pam with a card of really good hand needles.
 Thank you Pam!

If you follow my longarm quilting blog Moonbear Designs you already know that I spent the week clearing out my longarm studio in anticipation of a new Innova longarm. 
Today Michael and I broke down my worktable to move it to the other side of the studio. The new longarm will go here, where the table used to be
We cut almost a foot off of the table so that I will be able to fit in my industrial straight stitch. 
My table before and after in pieces
My table will stay in pieces until the Innova is set up. It will give Jim and Nicky of the Sew So Shop plenty of room to set up the longarm frame. 

I did have some fun this week, after getting teased by my customers for having a plastic table cloth for a window treatment, I cut out and pieced a quilt top, pattern is called the Big EZ which it was! It will be made into a Roman Shade for one of the windows. It will be the first quilt on my new longarm, once it gets here...
Now to get back to making more blocks for MidWinter Blues QAL with Lori of Humble Quilts.
Groetjes, Jo

  1. What a thoughtful Valentine gift, he is a keeper. It is so much work, but how fun to get things all sorted out before the big day. I love the new window treatment, and that will be a good first for the new machine.
