Hello Everyone,

I know, I have been neglecting my blog... I just haven't had the time to post any updates.  although, I have been a little busy...

Here are a few things I have done.. Bib towels, embroidered a couple of jean jackets and working on a few quilts...
This is Zig the Flying Ace ...
Can't wait to make this for my little guy 
Below I am making a forest friends quillow
What is a quillow - it's a quilt that folds into a pillow.
I will show pictures when done.
And here I am making a Jelly Roll quilt
I love the orange and teal in this
it really makes the quilt pop.
I will post an update on all these when
they are completed.

Hello Friends,

Well I finally finished the wedding quilt I was working on...  it felt like I was working on it forever... Don't know why, but some seem to take way too long.

Here it is all done. :-) YAY 
 Above are pictures of bride & groom 
along with the invitation I put on the front
of the quilt - very nice keepsake!
Here is the label on the back side. 

I am very happy with the way this turned out!

Hello Quilters & Friends,

The summer is flying by and Shop Hop is just around the corner…  You know where us quilt girls will be... 
😊 Shh, don’t tell our husbands, they say we don’t need any more fabric or quilt notions. But we all know that’s not true. We can always use more!!!

Here are a couple of quilts that I am working on...
This one is for a friend....  Not done yet.
Another Frozen quilt.  I made one for a friend and someone saw it and “Loved it” -  asked if I would make one for her too. (Not done yet)
I also made this cute little baby girl quilt for another friend of mine, her son just had a little girl.  This quilt is made with flannel, it's so soft & snuggly. 
It's so adorable...  I'm thinking I might 
make another one.  😊

Hello Everyone,

I am now back from Florida and ready to start quilting again....  I went to visit my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter...  Yes, I am a grandma now!  So exciting!!!
I will be making cute little girly things - and quilts, can't wait! :-)

Here are pictures of the Frozen quilt I was working on just before I left for Florida..

This is the material I used with the panel -
White shimmering material for small border and then a larger 
blue snowflake border.
I used snow queen material for the back...
Here it is being quilted on the long arm
 Here it is done - front and back below
Just need to bind it.
 This looks so much better in person!
I love it - it came out absolutely beautiful!

Hello Everyone,

I was asked if I knew how to make teddy bears... A memory bear actually. Well, to be honest, I never made a teddy bear before...  So, I thought it might be time to try.  I had some leftover material from this unicorn quilt I made, so I decided to try it.  

Here is the unicorn quilt I made...
Here is the little teddy bear all laid out..
Started to sew & stuff him..
Here it is all done :-)
I think it came out pretty darn good 
for the first time making one...
I love it!!!

Thank you for stopping by :-)

Fairy Tale Quilt

Hello Everyone,

I did a little fairy tale embroidering on a quilt...  Each block has a different fairy tale saying on it.  The blocks took about an hour to create.  The saying are so cute too.
I love the way it turned out...

Below is the label I made for it...
