New Projects!

Are you a follower of Quilting Life and Fat Quarter's Blogspots?  If yes, you are aware that they have been doing tutorials for some time.  This past week, I have made their simple zippered bags and their little pin cushion.

This is a mini quilt that I found on Pinterest.  I used left over fabric from Riley Blake's "Celebration".

And finally, several cute bibs that I have made for my new granddaughter!  All are reversible!

I am currently working on a lap quilt using Moda's "Sunflower Song".   Will show pics when finished!  Until next time...

A cousin on my mother's side of the family, flew out from Illinois to see her parents in "Nooksack, Washington"!  I drove over to my sister's on Wednesday and then to Bellingham to visit lots of cousins for breakfast.  It was fun visiting cousins and second cousins and cousins twice removed (whatever that means)  I gave my cousin some dolly sleeping bags for her grandchildren.  I forgot to take pictures of these cousins, bad girl!

After breakfast I did some shopping (Two Thimbles Quilt Shop in Bellingham) and then stopped at my cousin's on my dad's side of the family.  I left a small quilt with her (she has several!)

Finally Thursday evening, I had dinner with my son!  I gave him some receiving blankets and burp cloths that I had made for the baby girl due in October!  My next project for the baby is bibs.  I have found several cute ones on Pinterest.

I finished this little table topper while at my sisters, and left it with her!

Until next time, I am off to prep for dinner!

It has been awhile?!!

I didn't realize how long it has been since I updated my blog.  I have been doing a lot of quilting for clients, and sewing for myself.  That means that I don't have too many finished quilts!  Too many, can you say ONE!  The pattern is called "Pretzel Twist" and can be found in Fons and Porter's Quilting Quickly, June 2016.

My friend and I took a flower arranging class the Saturday before Mother's Day.  It was fun!

 Until next time...

I finished two more baby quilts this morning.  One for my granddaughter and one for a friend's grandson!  I used "Whitewashed Cottage" on my granddaughter's and a couple of collections from Art Gallery for the friend's!

I have been busy!??

Good morning, Yes, I have been a bit busy spending time in the dungeon quilting for some friends.  I was able to finish one of my baby quilts and a couple of table toppers.  I am making boys and girls quilts, receiving blankets and burp cloths since we do not know the sex of the baby YET!!

More Finishes!

I finished up two tops this morning.  I just needed to add a border on one, and replace some odd squares on the other.

I used Holly Taylor's "The Potting Shed" for the first one.  Love the purples!

The second one is a Christmas Quilt using "Under The Mistletoe" and is a queen size.  This will look great on our bed next December.  In fact, I should buy some extra fabric and make two shams!!

Off to get some batting for some Guild quilting!

Stash Busting

I had this block in one of my Pinterest boards and finally decided to make a small quilt.  I dug through my stash and found some M.E. fabric and went to work.

I also finished my "Leap Year" quilt but want to add a border.  I ordered the aqua polka dot from the "Prairie" collection.

Now, while I try to figure out what I am going to fix for dinner, I am going to organize some of my sewing room!  Ha Ha!!

Week End Wrap Up!

 I don't have too much to show, just a couple of mini's and my blocks from Aunt Reen's current quilt along.

While wandering around in Pinterest, I saw a cute small (4.5") granny square and decided to make some.  I thought nine and ended up with four!  It takes forever!  It measures ~12 x 12 and will be a birthday present for a friend.

This mini is February's pick for Huckleberry Stitches small quilt along.  This is called "Don't Play With Utensils."

I arranged my blocks for Aunt Reen's quilt along as I thought they should be.  I will find out next Friday the actual placement.

Until next Friday or until I get another project finished!
