Welcome to My Blog

Let's talk about quilting and if you happen to be bi-lingual [you both quilt and knit] we can chat about about them both!

Updated Quilts May 2013

This is a table runner I just completed from a pattern called City Blocks. Love it. Very nice and went fast. Used 2.5" charms. I'm all inspired to do some more!

This is baby quilt i made using 5" charms. Gave it to my Granddaughter Olivia. I made folds with the charms and used them in the border. The pattern was from the internet and was free. 

I'm not sure what I'll do with this. Got the kit at the thrift shop, semi completed. It was supposed to be a group of place mats but obviously they were not cut that way. I went with the flow and made it into one mat. Maybe as a table centerpiece.

Penny's PSA3 Memory Quilt

Made 4/21/2009
Penny was leaving for Memphis and all the people in the office use a marker to write their names & leave a message on a piece of muslin. I didn't use a certain size. Freeform! I then took all the pieces, evened them out and did a series of 2 1/2" strips around each. Sewed them all together... Ta Da! About a crib size. I ended up using a brown dotted swiss for the backing. All that from my stash! Imagine that!

I've finally gotten going on my Diamond Quilt. I bought the fabric on our last trip to Indy[not enough.. isn't that how it always works?] and have 4 x 4 diamonds going. Kinda like a log cabin but in a diamond shape instead. Looks like I'll need to make another trip to a quilt shop to get some more fabice to complete my project. [almost sounds like work!]
