A blog about my life and quilts especially! This plaid quilt was made by me...pattern by Evelyn Sloppy in her Strings book!!

I have been playing with mitering corners, and small flower quilts, for the wall...well, someones wall, anyway. Above it one with just plain fabric as the border.
Hers is my quilted and finished example, with a string border. My husband likes the one above, much, much better. I think that the first is more formal, and the second? Is more like me! Kinda off kilter and a bit wild looking! I have enjoyed them both, and plan to hand quilt the first one, much like the second.
Just some leftover pieces and parts...and I made this block. It will be a candle mat, or something...
A little red heart quilt that I found, quite unfinished, in a stack of small quilts...so I put it in my busy bag, to take with me when I find myself in a waiting room, or with a few moments to spare...
Some gorgeous Mother's day flowers! Thank you so much, dear son and dear DIL!!
And speaking of mothers...here is mine. I love you, Momma!! Gone since I was 12 years old, I have felt like an orphan since then...any of you have that experience??
