Call me insane…but I am doing the Lori Holt, “Bee Happy Sew Along”! Continue reading
My husband and I took a quick trip to Las Vegas last week and of course I had to go to one of my favorite quilt shops…The Christmas Goose. I found a fun pattern book with this darling little Star Crossed Mini Quilt. Continue reading
I found this darling quilt panel a couple of months ago when we were in St. George, Utah. I fell in love with the “glamper” fabric and knew right away that I wanted to make a “Glamper Quilt” for summer picnics, afternoons at the park and to take to the ballgames! Continue reading
I went for a mammogram a few weeks ago…which by the way…if you are due for one, or overdue…GO GET IT DONE. Luckily everything was okay for me, but on the way home I decided that I needed to treat myself…to a new quilt kit! I’m spoiled rotten, I know! They had these kits at the Fabric Mill in Orem, Utah and I just could not resist! I am a well known Coke-aholic! My granddaughter reminds me of this often! :) Continue reading
I am back from my Christmas break! I hope that everyone had a great holiday and that you got to do something you loved or be with someone you love!
I mentioned that I was making quilts for Christmas, well we ended up making 5 of them! I bought a kit last summer and it had the pattern and everything in it for a complete quilt. It was such an easy pattern that I was able to put the top together in an evening! There was actually enough fabric in that kit to do the star and the border for a second quilt! So that is what got me on a roll! My husband was out of town for about a week and during that week I was able to put 4 of these quilts together and my daughter did the 5th one for her husband for Christmas!
I finished my redwork quilt last weekend and I am so excited to put up all my Christmas decorations now! In fact, I had all my kids and grandkids haul up all my boxes with my decorations from the downstairs, so they are scattered in boxes all around the house! It usually takes me 2-3 days to put up all of my decorations, but for the most part, I take my time and just enjoy it. I usually have a little helper or two, so it goes up pretty quickly.
Here is my newest redwork project, to add to my collection:
I finally got my Thanksgiving Table quilt done last week! It took me longer to get to it than I anticipated! (But isn’t that how a lot of things go?) I am very happy with it, and it is on my kitchen table now, where I can enjoy it every time I walk into the kitchen!
I finished my Halloween Table Quilt last weekend! Hurray!
I feel like I have been sewing non-stop lately, but I have been able to get a lot done, so I am not complaining! My husband went hunting last week so I did no cleaning or cooking for a couple days. It was nice to just be on my own timetable and do whatever I wanted when I wanted! I have two more quilts that I want to get done. A Fall/Thanksgiving quilt and my Christmas Stitched quilt. Oh, and I have another minky/baptism quilt, (but for a girl this time) coming up the first part of December! So I have 3 more to go!
But here is my Halloween Table Quilt. I think that it turned out pretty cute. I love all the details in this little quilt. It is good for a wall hanging or for a table quilt:
I do not have a Thursday’s Thought this week. Instead, I have this really cute picture!
This is our newest little granddaughter! We are so excited to have her here and to know that she and her mom are both doing good! We were worried because there were some complications, so we are so thankful that everything turned out so well! Continue reading
