Sewing and spring

I had the best time recently, camping at a beautiful location
With my trusty little sewing machine!
The weather varied quite a bit….but it didn’t include anything too severe. 
A little wind and rain was all that troubled us.
The sky was always changing and I loved every minute!

This blog has been quiet…but I have been busy!
Most of my energy has been focused on youtube so something had to give.
This Prairie patch quilt block is one of my recent FAVORITES!

I have also been busy sewing for others.

Making this sweet memory pillow was such a pleasure.
It only took ONE soccer Jersey
And just a LITTLE bit of fabric!

Of course…
I had to make a baby quilt for a friend!
This diamond string quilt is one that I have always wanted to try!

Scrap fabric in the form of strings is something I will 
NEVER run out of!

Monday making - catching up

It's been quiet in this corner of blogland....

but I've been busy!

Sewing a few things like this dizzy geese quilt block.
Details HERE

I also finished this Beautiful BABY quilt!
It's ALL READY for the new baby.

I used a gifted fat quarter bundle and LOVE the way this turned out.
I would never have chosen these colors on my own...
But they're so pretty!

I have also been BUSY with family stuff.

With most of the kids grown and gone it means we travel.

Here we are in South Dakota to see one of our sons and his wife's family.
Our visit included a corn maze!
A FIRST for me. 😉

We visited my daughter's family in Texas
we were able to bring our granddaughter BACK with us for another visit.

What a GIFT that was!

A tea party with my youngest for a friend's birthday.

Lots of special times!
I loved every minute.

I have decided this will be our last linky party.
This blog has been a GREAT way to connect with other quilters.
This is where I have met so many amazing quilty friends!
I will still continue to post here but probably not quite as often.

I am still trying to figure it out....
Thanks for your participation and all the encouragement you give everyone.

Link up and share what YOU are working on!

monday making - fall

Is it FALL where you are?

These little coasters began on a whim.
First a pumkin.
Then an acorn.
Finally a leaf.

Are there any other fall motifs that I should include??

Having lots of fun making and dreaming.

I also made a VERY simple quilt top.

Sometimes the fabric just needs to SHINE!
Not much piecing necessary.

Both projects are on my youtube channel.

What are YOU making this week??

monday making

Recently I found this amazing TIE quilt at the thrift store.
It wasn’t QUITE finished.
Still a couple of names that needed to be embroidered.
It is a quilt TOP at this point.

I bought it and just enjoyed looking at the amazing handwork!

I also made a tiny replica for my new dollhouse.
More on that on my youtube channel.

A scrappy quilt top and a more controlled color palette
with all solids.

What are YOU making this week??

Monday making- stars and squares

I am making a sweet sweet baby quilt with a small stack of fat quarters.
They were a gift.
Not the colors I would have chosen.
I am loving these stars!

With 14 fat quarters I will have plenty for a small baby quilt.

I also did a little charity quilting.
The quilt top was made by someone in my quilting guild.
I quilted it simply with some wavy lines.

Even simple quilts are special...don't you think?

Monday Making

SO much fun to put together!

Did YOU celebrate national jelly roll day with a quilt?

I also completed the LAST block for my 
Summertime sampler quilt!

This last little project proves that ORANGE was a favorite this week.

ALL the fall colors sort of TOOK over my sewing room!

What are YOU making this week??

Monday making

I have been doing some hand quilting in the evenings here.
It’s such a peaceful way to end the day.

This quilt block is called King's cross.
Love the red and green in this one.

I also finished the 9th block in my summertime sampler
Only one more block pattern to go!

Last, but not least, I was able to get a baby quilt sent off.
New babies are so fun to celebrate with a quilt!

What are YOU making this week??
