Blue Turning Twenty Quilt

When we were planning my dad’s 90th birthday party, he said that his favorite color was blue, so we used blue and yellow to decorate with.  I decided at the last minute to make a Blue Turning Twenty Quilt for him!  I did this quilt with blue and cream and I was able to find all of the fabric at a local quilt shop called “Broadbents”.DSC_7360 Continue reading

Bloom Quilt-Row 2

Today I want to show you my Bloom Quilt-Row 2.

I have been busy doing my spring cleaning all last week and the first part of this week…I only have one more closet to go and I am finished!!!!  Hurray!

 I feel like a new woman.  

The one closet that I have left is a BIG MESS!  It is my craft closet in my office and my granddaughter got in that closet the other day and she informed me that it was a mess and needed to be cleaned.   I thanked her for that information and told her that I would need her help to clean it out!  :)  She is such a sweetheart and agreed that she would!

But I did get row 2 of my Bloom quilt done and put together:bloom quilt-row 2 Continue reading
