Latest Snowman Project

I finished this wall hanging 9/30/10. The blocks are from a block swap hosted by my friend PJ Oliver last year. I added 2 blocks to make it complete. The top left hand corner is a "snowman collector" embroidered block by my friend Sue from Illinois and the bottom right hand block is just an extra block I had laying around. This is a special wall hanging to me because the ladies that made the blocks are very special to me.

Todays Simple Project Voila Bag from Honey Bee Quilt Shop

This only calls for a 1/2 yd of fabric but I lined it so I used a whole yard! Big deal huh? Most of us have hundreds of yards of fabric in our collection! Betty Boop is one of the fabric collections I have and she always makes my heart feel warm and fuzzy. I watched her and Pudgey (her puppy) over and over as a child. Anyway see what you think!

Schnibbles Picnic Baskets

And here is the finished product! What do you think?
All I have left to do is sandwich, quilt and bind it.

These are the blocks all ready to be sashed together! Cute huh?

Starting my cute little Schnibbles quilt! This is a fun little project and there are so many to choose from! That was the hard part. Maybe I will just have to make all of them! I used 2 charm square packages, Recess by Moda and A Breath of Avignon also by Moda and a white on white moda fabric.

In Memory of my precious friend, Viva Marie Pratt. 11/16/1918 - 05/14/2010

91 years young and still quilting! This is one of the many quilts she made. She was a treasure to know. Never an unkind word about anyone or to anyone. She was loved by everyone that she came in contact with and was a great influence in my personal and spiritual life. She loved her family and friends but above all else, she loved the Lord and lived to do His will. The next time she opens her eyes it will be to see the Lord and hear His voice calling her to wake up and come & inherit the kingdom. Rest in peace my beloved friend.

It's been a while!

It has been a while since I posted. Been busy quilting and retreating in Texas. A few of us gathered for a quilting retreat in Quitman Texas. The bunkhouse is owned and operated by Stitchin Heaven in Quitman. It is a beautiful place that sleeps up to 16 people. Has 3 full baths, a very nicely equiped kitchen and even a washroom! A huge room set up with tables and ironing boards. We all had a ball!

Project for January

I have so many things I want to work on but I know I can only choose one I can finish so, I want to finish my SIL's quilt. I started it a couple of weeks ago and still have to put on borders and quilt it. It's in shades of purples. Her favorite colors.
