OMG Its a Flimsy!

I am now working on the border. It will be hearts. Still undecided about pieced or appliquéd hearts or maybe a combination of both. What would you do?

Sweet pictures of Lucy.

Almost There

I thought I had enough blocks but I didn't. So more nine patches are needed. I am making this queen size and it will have borders of some kind. I'm thinking pieced hearts.

The Grieving Quilt

Did you know that quilting is grieving therapy? It is and it has kept me focused on making a Oh My Gosh Quilt. I used inch and a half strips instead of the original inch strips. I'm loving it and its using lots of fabrics.

How do you like my design wall? It is a outside table cloth with a hem sewn. Presto design wall. The backside of the table cloth is flannel.

And I've been stitching along on ole Benjamin Biggs blocks. Just for fun I added pink flowers, a nice surprise.

My sewing machine is calling me...

Saying Good Bye

My day will be a difficult one. My son died on October 30th and his services are today. It's been a difficult few days.

I will be taking a blog break but don't worry, sewing is still my therapy and will be utilized.

Scrappy Trips

I used some of my scrappy trips blocks this morning and this top is the result.

This quilt is a Christmas present. Have you been making your Christmas presents or are you a last minute sewer?

I still have 27 blocks left so I don't have to make many more blocks for another top. I love having blocks made.

Scrappy Churn Dash

I showed this small quilt top a week ago. I was inspired to dress it up with more scraps this morning. I am happy with it now.

Hope you are finding a little time to stitch today...

Quilt Retreat Weekend

I attended our annual state retreat this past weekend. I taught a class today easy pieced curves, no ruler. My students loved the technique. Here are some of everyone's finished blocks.

What a fun morning!
