I got a little side tracked yesterday.  I wanted a quick project, so I made "Modern Valentine Table Runner" that Sherri at "A Quilting Life" contributed to the "Be Mine Blog Tour".  I made mine square and also used Moda's "Giddy".

I'm going to get my sewing machine ready and finish the border on my "Wild Thing".   Yesterday I quilted a quilt for my sister's friend.  I have my quilting machine loaded with a lapsize quilt, using "Bliss". 

My day is planned out.  How about yours?

I thought that I would show you a couple of things that I have been working on.  The first is a wild "I Spy" baby quilt for a friend of a friend.  I have made these two ladies a couple of these quilts and they say that the babies love them!

Welcome Riley Sofia

The second project that I have been working on is a "Mug Rug Swap" sponsored by the "Quilt Gallery".  My swap partner wanted something bright and she likes polka dots!  I made a matching kitchen towel--don't tell her!  (I just noticed that I sewed the pieces of my big block rug mug wrong!)

And my WIP is a quilt by "Thimble Blossoms" called "Wild Thing".  I am using Moda's "Collection for a Cause--Hope".  I used the block pattern for one of my mug rugs!

I will show you the quilt, when I have finished quilting it and sewn the binding on.  Until then...

Happy 2011

I have finished my first quilt for 2011.  I used the black and white of Moda's Authentic and made, I don't know what to call it--contemporary??  Anyway, it is for a friend at work.

I am ready for some changes in my life.  I started yesterday with my blog, and I am still not happy with it.  More changes to come--as soon as I figure out how to do it.  Cozy Little House has a tutorial on making blog banners.  I have downloaded two recommended programs and am trying to work my way through the tutorial.
