PSSST...

You over there.   Yeah, you!


Maynard the Moose here!
I gotta make this quick, cause if mom finds out
I'm on her computer...she is not going to be happy!

She's had us stuffed in a bag for at least 6 months now.
I was able to escape, but there are 11 more of my brothers 
and sisters in there yet.

If you don't see me, or the rest of my clan soon, 
you may need to send help.
She might need an intervention of some kind!


Just sayin!!!!

PS: Congratulations to the winner of her "Meet a Quilter" give a way, over at FunThreads.
Madebymeinred

She's got your pattern all ready to send out when she gets your mailing info.
On a personal note... that's a pretty cool name  Meinred. Sounds a lot like Maynard!
You have great taste, if I say so myself.
Rats, gotta go... I hear her coming!

Easter Party Quilt-A-Long Block 3




  

Here we are, sailing along with Block #3

 How Egg-citing!
It's all about the "Egg" this week.
The background for this beauty is "Whip Cream", from the Island Batik Neutral Collection.
Can we say...yummmmmmmy!


 Here, is where you can break out your decorative stitches on your machines.
Or for those who love hand embroidery...it's perfect!
On my rosette I choose to cut out the center design. It's tedious work, but it gives it a nice look.
Of course the sky is the limit, if you have an embroidery machine, a tiny little 
bunny or chick embroidered would be "sew" darn cute.


Let me share a little secret with you...
Have you ever had a darker fabric show thru a lighter one, when your appliqueing?
You can thread paint to camouflage it!
I've added some, to all my eggs, making sure that it's on the same side on each one.
Think about your light source...it needs to be consistant.
:-)


We have added a couple new colors this week.
Cause more is better!
:-)

Left to right...

Bloggers Quilt Festival

Thanks Amy, for another fabulous Quilt Festival.
You know we just can't wait, for it to roll around.

I've been busy as a beaver the past few days trying to get my
entry finished in time.

Whew!  Made it with just hours to spare.


My entry in the "Scrappy" category, is my 
Quilt Show BOM from 2014.


A-Z for Ewe and Me
by Janet Stone

This one called my name for quite awhile, before I took the plunge and renewed my membership.
I looked at it for months, then threw caution to the wind and jumped in.


This is just something about all the blocks that I couldn't shake.


and that border, that just make it pop!


But these adorable little lambs...
They got me hook, line, and sinker.
:-)


Here I am working away on it, at our quilt retreat last month.
I actually put the wine away when I worked on this one!
If you've read my blog...you know what trouble we got into with the wine!
LOL!!
The true sign of a wildly successful retreat.
(And I know the others agree)
TEE HEE...



I had all the blocks together when I left.

What a great stash buster this was. The only fabric I bought 
was the dark blue for the border. Don't you just love it, 
when you actually shop your stash?

Oh and that little machine that was using at retreat...
That's the one I quilted the entire quilt on.
This 68" x 87" quilt, is just shy of double size.
It's was a first for me, to attempt something this large.
And what fun it was!

Thanks for visiting the MooseStash, and feel free to drop in anytime!

 Enjoy the rest of the hop.

I know you'll find some incredible talent right...  
That's bound to capture your heart!
Thanks again Amy, your the best.
;-)

Meet a Quilter

Carol over at "Fun Threads" invited me over for a chat today.
For those who know me...
there's nothing I like better than 
yammering away over quilting of some kind!

I talked a little about this...

And  a little about that...


And of course how much fun this was!


These boys took over part of my interview!


Can you imagine...
It was supposed to be all about me!

But they have a give a way for you.
Hop over to Fun Threads to see what it's all about.

Thanks Carol for inviting me over!
It was great chatting with you.

BeaQuilters Peanuts BOM #5

If you have ever had a little one, you've seen this blanket thing. LOL!!



Linus van Pelt joined the gang on September 19, 1952
(gosh, there is one person on the planet older than me)
;-)
This was Charlie Brown's blanket toting best friend.
He was Sally's love interest
and the most insecure but smartest of all the characters.
A philosopher and theologian!






A big thanks to BeaQuilter
You can read more from here right HERE 

Of course it's all possible thru the generosity of Alida and her wonderful 
paper piecing patterns. See more of there right HERE
