Rainbow quilts update

 


I pulled out this quilt top and finally put borders on it!!  Hurrah!!!  It is my own creation of plaid strings and applique hearts.  



Lucky the kitty is always a good helper with quilting.  Here he is, selecting border fabrics.


Yes, he has sass, this one!!!  Always up for playing and running and just generally having a great time!




Here is Lucky posing with my rainbow quilt blocks for this year.  I am linking to Angela, at So Scrappy quilts.  Just a variety of fun blocks!!!



I really enjoy making hearts to spread some love around.



I am working on the mystery quilt...psychologically, I would say I am procrastinating getting it finished because I love the process so much!!

Hope you are having a great day!!

Happy Sunday!



Kitty was not feeling well.  Did not eat for a day, then ate OK, then not again for 36 hours.  I started feeding him baby food with a syringe.  Right now, he seems right as rain, if skinny...



And then there were nine heart blocks, with flowers and rick-rack.  Goodness...rick-rack?  But I love it, for the bright borders it provides.



I finished hand quilting this little quilt, made out of Janet scraps.  My very favorite thing in the world is scraps!!  Thank you, my dear friend!! Why do I love scraps so, so much???




This quilt got back from the quilter's and will be bound and gifted to our volunteers at my work.  Raffle?  Gift?  Not sure, and it will be up to them.  





 Kitty felt good enough to inspect this little pink quilt for my nursing friend with breast cancer.  It is all done now!!!




Have a lovely day, each of you!

Updates!!

Hurrah!!  I got this quilt top together, which was a rainbow quilts one.  It is off to the quilter, and then will be gifted to a patient.




I have been fiddling with the heart blocks, which I love.  Just silly flowers.  I love those too!!

I pulled out this very thick string quilt to put on the bed, for it has been cold here.  I mean relatively.  I know you in the Dakotas and such are laughing at my 12 degree weather, which thankfully was short lived.  The cold weather surely did a number on the garden, though.  Onward!  I got new seeds for the springtime garden today.



I have a nurse friend who loves pink, and has told me several times how much she loves it.  OK then!!  She is a breast cancer patient too.  She will get this one when it is completed.

What are you working on today????

Slow stitching and rainbow blocks and gifted scraps!



Hello!!!  It is snowy here, and yet the sun is out in full force.  The snow will soon be gone.  It is the perfect time for slow stitching, right???  Above is my offering of the week for Kathy, who blogs at the page below.






Janet gave me scraps!!!!  I adore scraps, as many of you know.  I made a little quilt, above, trying to be as accurate as Janet.   Just go over and enjoy her lovely creations!!

Janet blogs here:







This is a brand new year!!!  We are led by this wonderful teacher, below.  She has all kinds of fun ideas to use a different color each month. It is great fun!
 



I have not forgotten the mystery quilt, just waiting for the perfect time to finish it all up.  

Have a lovely day, all!

Exactly what goes on with the blog, I have no clue.  I wrote a whole post, and half the pictures disappeared and all the verbage!!  Let's try this again.  Kitty above is very happy to help with any aspect of quilting.  Mostly he loves to get the little pieces and run off at full speed with them!

I was just playing with my 4-inch quilt blocks.  Great fun!


I am making good progress now on the mystery quilt.  Onwards!!!

Hope each of you is doing great!

Scraps are so much fun!!


In-between making pieces and parts for the Quiltville Mystery quilt, I pulled out some plaids and started piecing Log Cabin blocks.  These are just so much fun for me!


I have had a squirrel nibbling at my brain for a little while, and I decided to make some of these blocks.  I think they are great fun too.  Corn and beans blocks; a public domain pattern.  Scraps make me so, so happy, especially gifted scraps!!  Why are new to me fabrics just so much fun?



 I finished the applique on this little quilt.  Just describes the week, don't you think so?



Have a great day, each of you!
