Quilt #11

is done.  This one is 60 x 85.  I think I will do more binding cut at 2 inches--I really like the look.
I have the top done from Pat's class, but can't find the thread I want to use--maybe I just dreamed I had it!! (I do dream of pretty cones of thread as well as pretty bolts of fabric!)
Am working this weekend, so will Try to limit my fabric acquisition to only NEEDED fabric--which gives me free rein!  Oh, well.

Sunday Stitches

I have parked my hiney boggs on the couch for a marathon of binding---I cut it at 2 inches instead of 2 1/4, so the stitches will have to be smaller so there will be no gaping!!  Therefore, it will take longer--good thing I love that part of quilting!

Kelli at has a great giveaway going on---fat quarters!  Check it out.

Happy kids

The four children I just made quilts for love them..  Their mom sent me a video she took of them pulling the quilts out of the bag and each child grabbed the one made for them.  Score!!  And they snuggled in on the couch all afternoon.  And that's why I make and give quilts away.  (No snickering or "told you so"s, Becca!!!)

My sister loves me

She says she's craft impaired, but I checked out the back of this embroidered dish towel and she is good!
And she knows I love pink flamingos and the beach---the kind that has hot sand, not the beaches around here with cold rocks and ice chunks!!

Design wall Monday

Oops! Deleted the photo of the blocks I had on the wall ( Making Out with Bob challenge on a quilt list) and they are now down, pinned in order, ready to be sashed.  My bad.
 Tonight I will be in a quilt class taught by my wonderful boss lady, so a PIG (Project In Grocery bag) will be slaughtered and added to the WIP (Works In Progress) group.
The sun is shining and it was 0 degrees this morning....Oh, Joy!!  I love global warming!

Quilt #10

This  is for Dakota--guess what? He likes wolves!  So I took a panel and some wolf fabric and created this.  A designer I am not, but the kid will love it......or else!!


or long-legged moose?  I thought these tracks coming out of the woods looked great.  The snow is only about 3 feet deep!

#5,#6,#7 Quilts

All small quilts--the Dr Seuss is 36x45 and the other 2 are larger.  Just finished another one to be used as a shop sample, so #8 went to the rear.  Two more sides of binding.....

#4 quilt

is at the shop.  It uses charm squares from the Etching line by Moda.
I will have DH assist in the pictures of the others.  (That way they will be straighter than I can take when they are laying on the floor!!)

Getting closer

to having my computer life in order!  I am posting this on my new laptop, which has the bare minimum installed so far....DH only got home last night and so far has spent all morning plowing and shoveling!!  Did I mention we got over a foot of snow since Sunday???  And more is expected...I love spring--she said with a great deal of sarcasm!!!
