Keeping up....

 This quilt has almost made it to the finish line. Shabby Fabrics Block of the Month pattern.
 I love my little quilt stand. I have been trying to make a quilt for each season to display. This sits in my sewing room under a window. The butterflies were hand appliquéd, my favorite quilting technique.
The arcs are April's clue for "The Quilt Show BOM" (there are 18). May's clue is to make 18 more arcs and add a small border between the stars and arcs. This quilt has been a real challenge for me, so I am trying to keep up with each month.

Multi-tasking

 I'm not sure if you would call this multi-tasking, but I do like having a few projects going at the same time! This is one of my UFO's that I will complete this year.
 I always enjoy hand work, so this is a new pattern I am working on. I have not used black as a background in any quilt, so this will be a little out of my box. I love my "friend" plaque given to me by a dear friend. I have pictures of some of my friends on my cutting table. They make me happy!
This is "The Quilt Show" BOM. This has really been a challenge! The next clue is already coming soon. I hope this quilt turns out square!

Favorites

 I enjoy embroidery and have finally finished this pattern.  I love the Crab-apple Hill patterns. 
 The inside has pockets that can be filled with any project. 
 These placemats were made for my Niece who has moved to a new apartment. She is a "30 something" who enjoys homemade gifts!
 My Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt (see previous post for info) was quilted by Darby Myers. She is a longarm quilter, you can find her at www.quiltedsquidblogspot.com

Appreciating our military...

 This was a quilt I started in a class by Pat Speth. I will be donating it to a person in the military. Not sure who, but I know it will go to a good home.
I finished another baby quilt for my Great Niece, Eleanor. The colors, flowers, and butterflies were a request from my Niece in law.

Road to Ca 2017

 What a great time we had at Road to Ca Quilt show. I attended with friends, Barbara, Kathy and Janice. Anna also joined us almost every night for show and tell.

 The quilts were beautiful! Such talent shown at this quilt show. These were a few of my favorites.





And last but not least; I finished the top for the "Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, En Provence". You can find her patterns on her blog at quiltville.blogspot.com

2017 New Year, new goals

 This is the first block for the "The Quilt Show's" Sue Garmon Block of the Month. So sad to hear that Sue Garmon has died since this posting. I will enjoy this years Block of the Month in memory of her.
My goal for this year is to quilt some of my completed quilt tops. Shown here are: Bonnie Hunter's En Provence Mystery quilt, still finishing the top. I have begun to quilt the Red/white/and blue quilt. Cross Roads Quilt Along by Fat Quarter shop, and Dulcet by "Its sew Emma" pattern are quilt tops I completed this past year. The quilt on the top is made using "Jason Yenter" fabrics. I added some appliqué butterflies to the quilt top. This was made about 5 years ago, so I really would like to get this quilted this year. As one of my favorite bloggers would say, "Goals are good"!
