UFO Group


I belong to a UFO Group and we usually sew together one day a month and then on special days. Like today being Presidents Day it was an extra day to work on UFO’s. I worked on this yellow quilt top for a friend that’s going to be a grandmother for the first time in July. This is one I wasn’t real sure of, but so far it’s coming along good. I need to get the binding and backing for it to finish it, so hope to do that by the time we have our next sewing day. I love yellow though, it’s so clean and fresh looking:) BTW it’s going to be a girl:)

Long Lost Quilt Found


Before my oldest grandson Matthew was born, I started making him a primary color quilt, and then did the same before my granddaughter Samantha was born. I had pieces left over so I went ahead and put them together to save for another day. Well, between then (Matthew is going to be 16 next month! lol) and now I had misplaced it. While cleaning out my son’s room today I came across it. It’s such a delight too. My oldest friend of 54 years is going to become a new Grandmother for the first time this summer! I’m so excited you’d think it was mine! lol Anyway, it just really seems to fit that this quilt will go to her for her new Granddaughter. (When it’s finished, this is only the top of the quilt:)

Christmas Blanket For the Kids


I started on a Christmas Quilt for the Linus Project yesterday and got it this far. I need to put some edging and backing on it to have it ready to go. I have another one of the “Rainbow Zebra” quilts I finished up too. I hope to have 3 more done before the holidays. That’s when kids in hospitals or other situations really need some cheering up. As well as, it was nicely pointed out to me, their parents. Isn’t it amazing when we see a smile on a childs face, especially our own, how that warms our hear:)
