If you are a follwer of my blog you will probably know by now that I have a great passion for Hoffman Fabrics. I was recently making a quilt with Bali Pops and charm squares and the design in one of the fabrics started me thinking "What a great quilting inspiration this is".

Sweet! I'm up to 39 days of quilting. That means I have quilted each week for 39 weeks in a row, just 13 days left to complete an entire year of quilting weekly. What fun. Talking about sweets, my favorite sweet (or candy as known in America) are hard boiled sweets. I am particularly found of Coffee Werthers.

Do you have many quilt tops sitting in the cupboard waiting to be quilted? Or are you tired of sending your quilts off to a longarm quilter for them to finish your beautiful quilt? Quilting your own quilts is very rewarding.

Back to the garden I go for machine quilting ideas. I love the shape of these leaves and the color is great too, just different than the usual green shades.

Christmas is just around the corner and Fall is close for those in the Northern hemisphere so Anita's pattern Angels or Angles is a really good choice for everyone. It is all patchwork triangles that can be made into a scrappy fall quilt...

This week's inspiration is a cactus plant. I used the idea on a small scale, but thinking about it further, I wonder how it would look starting out in the center of a large quilt and working your way out to the edge.

While out shopping I saw this really cool packaging design. I thought it would make a very different quilting design so snapped a photo.
