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 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!

Star Wars for Grown-Ups!

I made a Star Wars baby quilt for my golfing friend, Marti.  After her husband saw it, he wanted one for his grown up son!  The backing will be black Minkee.

I also made a quilt with left over fabrics!  This one is smaller, more lap size for a child!

Later Gator!
