I love Nana Company

I am so much in love with the work of Amy at Nana Company.  I just love her style.  She has a really distinct look and if I see something of hers on Pinterest I know it's hers without checking the source.  One of the things she does which I particularly love is put these distinctive little tags on her projects.

I love this so much I decided to copy the idea.  Obviously I didn't want my little tags to be exactly the same as Amy's so I hunted around until I found some fabulous fabric I felt was very me.  And last night at NOTYQ I made a few little tags to put on my swap projects.  I'm in quite a few swaps at the moment so maybe one will be coming your way.

I finally finished the stitching on my Kilmore Quilter's Maree's Mystery Challenge quilt. Now to add some appliquéd birds.  I'm trying to put all my hand stitching efforts into these early rounds before the quilt gets too big.

I also sewed on the binding of a NOTYQ charity quilt.  This group is very generous in its donations to the community.  I've committed to making quilts for Inspirational Quilts this year but I'd like to help at NOTYQ too so I'll be regularly sewing on quilt bindings and I'll show you these quilts as well.
A bit naughty I know but I couldn't resist this little fabric bundle from Hawthorne Threads.  It's called Fly a Kite by October Afternoon.


There's a fabulous tutorial on How to Applique at Nana Company.  Take a look HERE.  Thank you, Amy
