Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house… Ok, it wasn’t really that dramatic, but I was like a kid waiting for the last postmaster delivery before Christmas and look…the universe delivers!
Santa aka Aunty Linda sent me a beauty! ***Squeal*** Isn’t she cute and spunky?
What shall I name her? A prize is in order if I pick your story/name for her!
To help you understand my nervosa, “see related post” to meet the rest of my needle family… Woohoo!
Ok, here is the story… My Aunty Linda visited and I made her, her first quilt “see post”. You see, she is quite a collector and more times than not, you can stop by her house to find treasures before you go and scour the universe for treasures! Case in point, she happened to have this gem times two!!! So she parted this one inspired by QUTI and of course because she loves me!!!
I am in search of an original manual if anyway can find one for me to buy!!! I believe it is a Singer SewHandy Model 40k.
So I feel loved and blessed this holiday season…thank you Aunty!

Cheers to the QUTI Club! Here is Tiffany, an avid QUTI follower’s post…
Ever since last year, I wanted to make a tree quilt. I spent the summer looking at the Monkeypod trees at basketball practice and wondered how a tree would look on fabric. Then, my son’s 2nd grade class explored thanksgiving through the 5 senses and my daughter just loved the many different happy Halloween prints at the fabric store. Voila! The tree quilt presented itself–a cobweb trunk with pumpkin and spider leaves, art from my 2 year old, and thoughts from my son…what an excellent way to celebrate the fall holidays!
A quilt born from celebrating under the influence of my kids, fabulous fabric, fantastically creative friends, and the holiday season before us!!

Wow! Look at those colors and that cute kid!!! Spooky and in the spirit!
