New Quilt going on

This is the newest addition to the quilts I have going.  This is for a very dear friends hubby that lives in the Bay Area.  I need to put a narrow border of dark green around it then maybe a 3 or 4 inch border of the fabricd the anvil is made out of.  With any luck, it’ll be ready to go into the “need’s quilting” stack in a couple of days. lol

My Pink Quilt

All these years
I’ve been quilting and I have two quilts. No, make that three.  One is a Christmas Quilt, the other is a Halloween Quilt and the third is one made of primary color blocks when my 18 year old grandson was born.   I haven’t kept any for myself.  Well, I LOVE pink and I started out making this pink quilt for myself as a comfort quilt, but it kind of kept growing and growing and growing.  Now it needs to grow two more borders,  A two inch and a three inch. lol  So I pulled some pink out of my stash and I’ll try and get those on this week.  THEN  I will put it in line to quilt it.  I’m quilting a “HUGS” quilt, and then I have some children’s quilts to do first, then I can do this one for my bedroom.   So we’ll start the spring off with a pretty pink quilt on our bed.  Thank goodness I have an easy going sweetheart of a husband.  Have a great week everyone.

Fall Quilt Went To The Church Auction

I was making a Falll Quilt and then I was asked to make one for the Silent Auction at church tonight.  Well, that was only about two or so weeks ago and I had no idea it was that soon.   So in order to get it done I had to  finish up one that I had started.  I hove a beautiful antiquey reds Disappearing 9 Patch that I wanted to use but do you think I could find where I put it?  NOT  So in order to keep the deadline I used the quilt I was making for myself.  My fall quilt.  It came out real pretty, in the picture the stripping in between the blocks looks black but it’s actually a dark brown.

we took the pictures in a terrible hurry because my husband was going to take it over to the church for me.  So it’s not a real good picture.

Quilts for Connor and Grandma

This one is for Connor and will go to his Grandma’s house:)

This one too is orange and green, completely by accident, but this one goes to the Grandma to keep at her house.  Grandma’s have to have their “baby stash” too, don’t they? lol

This one is going to go to Connor too.  The orange and the yellow are the same, just the sashing and backing colors are different.      I have one more to make for Grandma, it’s a red and white one that is really cute.  It has black and white puppies on it.  The top is done, but I have to get it loaded on the frame and quilted. Then of course do the binding.  I’m hoping to have all that done by this week end some time.  Happy Day everyone.

Tops For The Girls and Baby are Done! yahooo

I finally got the quilt tops done for my dear friends son’s girlfriends two daughters. lol  I also got the two done for my daughters fiance’s two daughters.  Two are for Easter gifts and the other two will be given to them at a baby shower to be held at the end of next month.  There are two of the top one, that’s the top and the fabrics in the top.  There are also two of the second one and that’s the top and the fabric’s in the top.  The bottom one is a wonky one for the young girl who is 12.  I don’t think she would have appreciated the kiddy fabric.   I’ve also got two more going that are large baby quilts.  These were quick one’s to do because I don’t have a lot of time to get them done in.  I hope to start quilting them tomorrow or by the week end at the latest.

Haven’t Done A Whole Lot and Birthdays Are Here


Hey there:) I haven’t been very productive these past few months. I did manage to get my Halloween Quilt finished and trying to get a fall quilt done as well. I’m not making much progress though. I’ve had this rotten case of the blah’s and can’t seem to get motivated to do much of anything. So I’m going to try and get some sewing in today on the quilt and if I can do a little each day I may get it completed! Wouldn’t that be a shocker! lol Hope everyone is having this wonderful Fall weather we’re having.

Tomorrow is my granddaughter Samantha and my birthday’s. We started a tradition of just the two of us go out to dinner on our birthday when she was old enough to take to dinner. This year she’s invited her BFF Morgan to go with us so it should be a real treat. Two 15 year old girls can get pretty giggly! lol Sam and I always laugh all through dinner when we go so this should be a lot of fun with both girls.

Finished Quilts




I finally got my machine working again and I’m elated! The first two quilts are for AmHero’s and the third one is my neighbor Sonja Muenger with her Christmas Present in July! lol My machine went bonkers the first of Dec. so I never got it quilted, so finally getting the machine back in working condition after all this time I was able to finish it. She knew she had something coming, just didn’t know what it was:) So we took it over to her the other day and she was very happy with it. I was very happy to have it done and able to give it to her! lol
