Baby Quilt

This past weekend I sewed up a new baby quilt for a special co-worker. She is decorating her child's room in brown and blue. This is what I came up with. Blackie QA'ing the fabric choice. He likes it :-))) Such good helpers.

Roseville Album Update



For all you applique lovers, here is an update on my two big blocks. Won't be long and they will be finished. There are still many blocks to complete but these are the biggest, aside from borders.

These quilt blocks are very satisfying. I rotate from doing animals to getting back to finishing the green tree. Next time you see these 2 blocks they will be finished.

Empty Spools Seminar, Asilomar CA

I had a wonderful time in CA except for a stomach bug. I concentrate on the positive in life not the negative. Jo Ann I felt your presence almost all the time here. Thanks for keeping me company. The creative spirits rose up all around me.

Blogger chose the order of the photos so here goes. Deer were everywhere at Asilomar and fairly tame. I never get tired of seeing wild life. It brings a smile to my face. :-)

The cat is a work in progress in another class. I knew all the cat lovers would like this. I think it's fabulous. WOW!















The class I took was Pearl Peria, hand applique techniques. Here she is with her class sample. Notice hers is not finished which I though was great. I learned a lot from her and the technique makes your edges perfect. She had not even sewn the items to the background yet. Very humbling. Next picture is my project in progress. Seems a little tame right now but don't worry the wild child in me will make this wall hanging S I N G! You know I always put my spin into everything I create.





I'll keep you updated on my progess.
