Germany

Being in Germany has been very relaxing once I got over the dang jet lag. I have been continuing on stitching my hexes. Here is the group I have finished while here. Enjoy the flowers growing here at my brothers place in Hornbock.

Nature and a quilting

More pictures from the grounds. There is always something blooming.







I quilted this top and am tickled how good it came out. The binding is made and sewn on. As this is a gift for a friend I am going to hand stitch the binding on the back.

More Tulips and MAM Blocks

I have been steadily making my tulip blocks.  I do know that there are a few with leaf petals turned the wrong way.  I think they will,stay like that.  They are good for me now and in between I make MAM mile a minute scrap blocks.  This drawer is so full, I think it is time to make some quilts with these blocks.  I know there is a king size I am making for son and DIL.  That was supposed to be for Christmas last year, oops.  I like having blocks available for when I need a quick quilt.

In one of my scrap bags there was some light blue ticking/upholstery fabric.  I wrapped my first wool mat and it looks so much better.  I also wrapped the new one I bought so it wouldn't get nasty.  Has anyone tried to wash them?

Enjoy🐸

Hexies and more

The weather here in North Carolina has been beautiful and better now that the temperatures are lower. I have my house open and fans running.  The kitties sure do like it.  I had screens installed in the main area and it's a constant battle to see who gets by the screen door.

I have started a new hexi project.  So far so good.


I have started a tulip garden.  Yes I know one block has a lead turned the wrong way.


Speaking of beautiful my yard is fabulous with something blooming all the time.
