This week I was able to completely finish a quilt!
Binding and ALL.
Woo hoo!
Polka dot binding makes this one extra fun!

Maybe I'll get this quilt top from January quilted too!!
Graduation is right around the corner.
Deadlines are GOOD.
:)

This is just a fun shot of my little helper.....
getting all those pins ORGANIZED.
This Grandma can use ALL the help she can get!


My husband made sure we had enough flowers for Mother's day.
What a great guy!
The Sweet peas are overflowing this year!

This week I was able to quilt...quilt...
and quilt some more!!!

I spent time Loop-de-looping all over the quilts!
:)

In other words.....I did my signature DOODLE.
What's YOUR doodle??



I LOVE this fun flower backing I used for the scrappy quilt.
I found a large piece of this vintage daisy fabric a while back.
It was a TAD short.....so I added that little bit of stripe and pink strip
to make it big enough.

I'm on a roll.
Maybe I'll get some more quilt tops quilted THIS week!


What are YOU making this week???

I was very happy to have time in the sewing room this week.
This scrappy quilt top was almost done when I realized it was going to be 
TOO short!
(my daughter needs a longer quilt this time!)

I added blocks to the bottom and top 
and it really changed the look of the whole quilt.
I thought there would be Triangles all around...
Now there are scrappy squares on the bottom and top!

As I've said before...
Necessity is the mother of invention...or design in this case.

I wasn't sure how I'd lengthen this one...
But I DO like what HAPPENED!!!
I also did some harvesting.....

and roasting.
There is nothing quite like HOME grown!
:)

As the week progressed I saw a quilt block I couldn't resist.
Kathleen Tracy's quilt blocks had me intrigued...
so I made a few.
(I did not use her pattern, but did a little figuring on my own.
You'll see my leaves are not quite like hers
and I think my blocks may be smaller.)

A new baby quilt is now underway!!!!

What are YOU making this week??

Did I need another sewing machine?
No. I didn't.

I wasn't going to purchase this SWEET little green number,
but I couldn't get it out of my mind.
I was dreaming in GREEN, believe me!

I went back to the thrift store and it was still there.
AND not only THAT....
the price was lower!!!

Hmmmm...
What to do.
What to do....

I guess you know what I did.
 I've been sewing up a storm ever since
on my new little friend!.......


Making a string quilt.
The scraps are flying!!!

I was also honored to have an art quilt
included in a local exhibit at Greenly art space.
Mine was the only quilt.
What fun!!!

I am all caught up on Barbara Brackman's
Hospital sketches quilt along.

Making each of the blocks MY OWN!
:)
