Quilting along! and Plaids truly are the best thing ever devised by mankind!! or close...

I am catching up Lori's quilt along! It was a whim that started this, and a whirlwind that finished the center.  I am so delighted with it!!!  I truly enjoy working with plaids...part Scottish, ye understand!  Plaids from a friend made this all the sweeter.

I changed the house block.  The original one had templates and set in pieces, and I decided to sew a bit simpler one.  I also changed the bottom left block.  I sewed this mostly in the middle of the night, and could not get in the quilt closet for fabrics, (did not want to wake anyone!), so I used strips and pieces that I had already cut.  It was fun to make do with what I had on hand.

It feels so great to so engaged in a project!

I would like to donate this to the hospice unit, but then got to thinking...would this be OK to give to them for our waiting room?  Does anyone really feel welcome in that unit?  Or it just a sad part of life to get through for these visitors?  Or should it be more professional and less scrappy than this?


On to the borders!

Welcome quilt quiltalong!

Good morning to all!!  Lori is having a quilt along; rather, she has been having it!  It is coming to an end, so I have to catch up.  Above is the pattern.  So cute!  (Lori)

Of course, I had to make all the letter blocks first.  

I love all the scrappy plaids!  Plaids just make me so happy, and I do not know why.

A beginning, anyway!!

 These are my dark blue bowties.  I love these little blocks.

Hope you are having a joyful day!

A day off from the hospital.

I found this border for my quilt of valor in my stash.  Yahoo!

 I sewed the orange bowties.  Now on to blue!

This was a fast crocheted prayer shawl.  First person who needs it, gets it at my work.

Have you seen these primitive kitties?  They are so cute when they have faces on them!

Hope each of you is doing fantastic!

Just a bit of progress!

Good morning!  I have made a tiny bit of progress on my modern quilt.  I love the pops of color!!

 A few green bowties showed up!!  I am trying to finish at least one rainbow quilt for the year.

Hope you are doing great!  Can anyone help me get blog comments to go to my email again?  Sigh....not working.


Sweatshirt jacket

  Good morning!!  This is the second sweatshirt jacket I have made.  I got a large sweatshirt, because the sweatshirt really shrinks a lot. ...
