Is a program where you receive everything you need to make a cute small quilt for a child whose parent is deployed. All the fabrics, pictures printed on fabric, backing, batting is included. You just need to assemble and finish. Honestly it didn't take me very long to complete the quilt. I would definitely do it again. Maestro made sure it was done correctly.

And the scraps have been accumulating so it was time to make some pet beds.
Yesterday I quilted this bright (loud as hubby would say) top. This was fun to quilt. In quilting all these tops I've decided to expand my machine quilting skills. Do some different designs and challenge myself. Keeps it interesting. Initially they might be rough but that's the art of learning.
I received this email from J. She received one of my quilts and was amazed. She writes:
I just want you to know again how much I love my quilt!! It is beautiful and very precious to me.
I have shared the story of you giving it to me with so many people and they are just amazed that a stranger did that, as am I!!! I thank God for people like you who have come into my path on this journey. You are special and keep giving those hugs! I have Michael on my prayer list and think about y’all often. Love and hugs,
We live in the sticks and good internet has been lacking since we moved here 20 years ago. We've done dial up, and the last service was satellite internet that had a cap. I can't tell you how many months we went way over our limit at a cost of $10.00 a gig. Expensive!!!
Now we are on high speed internet that is within our electric coop provider. Talk about giddy.... I'm over the moon. I'm now able to watch videos and other things I couldn't watch before as it ate up our limit.
Today I machine quilted another top from my collection. It is machine quilted using an idea from Jaimie Wallen. The quilt pattern is called the basic swirl. I was able to watch the video and then do it.
The other major thing I did was finish cleaning out the spa, install new filters and fill up with fresh water. I have been missing a nice hot soak before bed time.
I started quilting this top yesterday and finished up around noon. I used a digital pattern that I think was perfect. Quilted with gold color connecting threads and MANY pieces of scrap batting. Win win in my book. The colors are much brighter that the pictures portray. This quilt will be another for Chemo patients.
I quilted this top last night and finished it this morning. Vining leaves on a scrappy top with a medium green thread. So Fine thread, 80/20 batting. I also made the binding but have not stitched it on.
I think I have an idea where a lot of these quilts can be donated. Those receiving chemo surely would appreciate a quilty hug. I had been wanting a special place for donating and this one just feels right.
With a special place in mind I may be motivated to quilt up some of my many tops.
Posting has been sporadic in the last few months due to Mr Frog Quilters many doctor and diagnostic tests. Long story short, he has cancer and started chemo yesterday. Chemo is three days in a row with the first day being the longest. We are on a three week schedule in addition to more doctor visits and testing when needed. This is our new journey and together we are taking our challenges day by day.
In addition to this I am still working full time but work has been wonderful about allowing me to work off site, either at the chemo center or at home when needed.
I am still getting my daily sewing fix which I need now more than ever. I'll try to post some quilty content this week.
