Today I have been busy playing with fabric for my Christmas Nutcracker stitchery block of the month which I will be releasing at the beginning of March. It will have nine different Nutcracker blocks and will be a great project for all the stitchery lovers out there.

My lastest quilt, Scattered Daisies, is a lovely applique daisies design that is perfect for every skill level and has a lovely modern look, thanks to the fabric, Grey Skies from Marcus Fabrics. I just love how the quilt has turned out and It was such fun to make. The quilt top without appplique looked great, so if applique isn't for you, this is still a lovely quick quilt to make, especially with your stash fabrics. This pattern is available as either a PDF digital file that you download and print yourself,or as a physical pattern that is shipped.
Here are a couple of photos of me quilting my latest quilt on my Handi Quilter long arm. I love the French general fabrics by Moda Fabrics United Notions and this quilt is one of my latest designs. Do keep an eye out for the pattern which I am working on. You can watch a short video of me working on my Facebook page by clicking here.
I went to a retreat and started these blocks with a hunny bun roll and added fabric from my stash. I'm really happy with how they look. The next design decision is how the blocks should be put together and whether to add a bit of applique. I love playing with options.
I'm very excited to show you all my latest pattern called Christmas Kiwi. If you're looking for a new quilt to hang for Christmas, or a quick gift you can make for someone special, then these quilts will be perfect. The fusible applique quilt can be made using scraps from your stash, which is what I did with mine. It was such fun sorting out just the right pieces to use. The pattern has full instuctions for both the fusible applique and stitchery versions, so the choice is yours. Happy stitching Tracey
