Fabric from Barb

Fabric from Barb

I haven’t been able to decide how to make a quilt out of this fabric without losing the beauty of it. So I think what I’m going to do is leave it, embillish it with stitching and put a binding on it. I just love this. It was a birthday gift from a friend several years ago and have been saving it.

The gifts from my Secret Santa SUSAN!!

Imagine my surprise when the package arrived from Susan and I was expecting some CQ Scraps, . It took me a couple of minutes of looking at it to realize she was my Secret Santa! lol  What a delightful array of goodies.  I keep going back to the box and looking at everything.  Thank you so much Susan I love every bit of it!

Quilt for a Special Person

This is a quilt for a very special someone in my life.  I hope to have it completed by next week sometime.
Isn’t this gorgeous!  It was a birthday present from a very dear friend and I’ve tried for several years now to figure out how to NOT lose the beauty of the fabric by making a quilt.  Well, I’m going to leave it as is, have some lovely enbelishment stitches put on it and then put the binding on. I think it will be just beautiful.

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

Anvil Block

Here’s a picture of the block’s I’ve been working on for a quilt for my best friends hubby.  I got all the blocks done but won’t be working on it for a while, I have some other things I have to catch up on.

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.
