Shabby fun...

 I finished my first Shabby Fabric's BOM called "Garden Tea Party". It is a pieced and appliqued block.  Very fun to make.
 This is a sewing basket my Grandfather ( my Mother's Dad) made for my Grandmother. Probably in the 1930s. Made with only hand tools. I love it! My Mom gave it to me. She doesn't mind if I paint it. So I am trying chalk paint. I plan to add Dove Egg blue to the inside. It will look "sew" good in my sewing room!!

Sail on..

 I finished another Shabby Fabrics block. Only one more to go! I signed up for Shabby Fabrics "Garden Tea Party" BOM, so I need to finish my summer blocks! I love appliqué!
I have finished quilting all of the redwork blocks, and now need to start working on the borders. Happy Quilting!

Finishing and starting...

 This is another baby quilt I finished for a great Niece. I have about 5 months before the next great Nephew is born so I plan to get some tops quilted before I begin my next baby quilt.
I have been working on this quilt top for quite some time. I am so excited to start quilting this one.  I think this will be one of my favorites! :) Happy quilting.

I forgot to mention….

I finished the top to the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, Grand Illusion! 

A New Year! 2015


 A new year and alot of quilting in my near future. My goal for the next few months is to get a few tops quilted. I have quite a few tops in my stash that need quilting, so I thought that would be a good goal for this year. Although I may be side tracked as we will have two new babies born in the family this year. Our family continues to grow!
This top was made as one of the mystery quilts from the Common Threads quilt guild. It was quilted by  Darby Shaw, she did an awesome job!

This quilt was made for a challenge with my quilting group, "The Material Girls". The challenge was to make a quilt with 1/2 square triangles.

Mystery part 3


I have been trying to keep up with the Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusion Mystery. Here are my Part 1, 2 and 3, I was able to complete a few blocks of each!
I hosted our annual Material Girls Christmas party this year. We had a great time! We missed those who couldn't make it. We were so excited to see Anna and Sue who traveled the farthest! What a treat!
