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.

Holiday fun, and a little bit of sewing…..



Merry Christmas with part of the family. More family came later.

Bonnie Hunter Mystery part 4 and 5. I have been doing a few of the blocks at a time. I have run out of fabric once again!!

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!

Bonnie Hunter Mystery….

 Working on the first clue of the mystery. I love how the pink and turquoise go together! The photo does not show the colors very well, but I like it.
I finished another top for a baby quilt. I used the fabric line "Miss Kate" by Moda. I will need to get this "baby" quilted before Christmas (even though the baby is one year old!)  :)

My First…..

 Quilt retreat at Wonder Valley was great! Great views and fun with friends! I finished two purses and started, yes you guessed it, another baby quilt!!

The group! L to R . Barbara B., Lynn Marie, Elaine, Janice, Barbara S. and Kathy

 We had lots of room to sew!
 Barbara Brown worked on napkins and Aprons-sew cute!
 Here is one of Barbara S's. quilt tops, along with some of Lynn Marie's blocks.
 Janice finished (almost) quilting and binding her Vintage Moments quilt.
This is Elaine hiding behind her finished quilt top.
Kathy got tired of quilting her Clematis quilt, so worked on her Ipad :)

Another baby….

The baby boom in our family continues! I am a great-auntie again. I actually finished this quilt before little Tori Rose was born :)
