Quilting kept me busy this week.
I am thankful for that.

I finally finished a quilt top and hope to quilt it soon!

I also made another table topper for an upcoming event.
It’s virtual...but still includes small quilts!

I am thankful for quilts.
I am thankful for the quilts I received early on that inspired me to MAKE quilts!
I’m thankful to make quilts.  -  It’s so good for my mental health. :)
I am thankful for this community of quilters.
You ALL have added to my love of quilting!
You MAKE. You inspire. You cheer!
This is the nicest community....
And I’m glad I found YOU!

I quilted a quilt top this week!

Baby quilts are one of very favorite things to make!

I took the tiniest pieces of fabric this week and just played!

It’s fun to play with fabric and thread!

I call it doodling.

Happy Valentines Day friends!


These little hanging hearts are just 6”.
The perfect size to hang on a knob somewhere.

I am working on a new quilt.
I saw a quilt in a Quiltmania magazine.
It was in the quilts in homes there was no info.
It was hanging on a wall...and I couldn’t even see the whole thing....
But....I was smitten.

I am working away on this new project.
Y seams.
A NOT so easy block for me.

This week I have been making log cabins.
Free style!!

This quilt top has been unfinished for quite a while now.
I just added the appliqué on the still needs some little circles.
Then I’ll add some more free style log cabins to get it bigger.
Queen sized??   Maybe.

I played with strings this week.
Don't you LOVE string quilts?

They are definitely one of my favorite kinds of quilts.

This nine patch of strings was made using 6" squares
and 6" half square triangles I made using a foundation.
Sometimes I use a foundation and sometimes I don't.

My old phone book contains the perfect foundation paper.
I hope it never runs out!

Here's a small section of a quilt top that is still waiting to be quilted.
