Oopsie Daisy!

The last couple of weeks have been a bit harrowing for me.  Fell down the lower portion of my stairs, broke my left leg, sprained my right wrist, and have had a couple retinal bleed issues!  My goodness enough already!  Sew... my sewing time has been a bit limited, but I just had to share with you my close to done "Birdsye" quilt!!  This is a rather dark one for me, but I like it.  It may take a bit to sew all those rows together, but it will be complete soon!

Whatever you celebrate, I hope you all have had, or having a wonderful time with family and friends!

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!

Phew!  Quilt camp has come and gone.  What a great time we all had!  Lot's of sewing, laughing, and great food!  One of our campers finished one of the projects!  Here's Patty's version of the plus sign quilt, I've been teasing you all with this past month.  I like the larger 3-1/2" squares, and the use of the batik scraps she used for this quilt.

Some of us worked on past quilt camp, quilts.  We did this quilt a year or so before.  It's from the Nickel Quilts and Borders book, by Pat Speth titled "Steamboat Springs".  The one pictured here is Mary's version, made from African prints.  Awesome looking! I need to move along on my own projects.  All those stars, my Birdseye quilt, and of course finish my plus sign quilt!!  I've also taken on a couple more projects, as we all do when we get together with fellow quilters!  More on this later.

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!

Not Much New Here

I really don't have much quilty news for you today.  I've been busy getting things together for Quilt Camp that begins this Thursday.  After that I should have some wonderful news and pictures for you!  I've been working a little here and there on the same projects, I've shown here in the last couple of months.  Hopefully one of those may be finished soon?  Stay tuned, we'll see.

It's beginning to feel a lot like early Spring here in the Silicon Valley area of California!  Not warm enough for me or my Hydrangea and Hibiscus plants yet, but it's giving me hope!  This is a picture I took while in Hawaii last month.  What great color!  Could there be a quilt brewing in these colors?

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!

Sonic Pop Done

With camp only one week away, I'm finished with samples and ready for the fun!  I've posted a picture of the Sonic Pop, although the borders are a little lighter than the picture shows.  I think it came out pretty well, considering all those little "issues". LOL :-)  Do you notice that I changed the sashing color?  The darker one looked too much like the blocks were in jail!  I was at a quilty event yesterday, and one of the woman thought this quilt needed a more descriptive name.  She has named it "Ebb and Flow"!  I like that!  Thanks Trish!

I also want to take a minute and thank everyone for their generous support, and warm responses regarding the completion of my DJ quilt!  I was so excited to see my followers grow a bit, and to receive so many wonderful emails.  Again a very warm thank you to all!

Time to get back to some of those other projects.  Stay tuned and I'll be showing more progress soon.

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!!

Officially a DJ Goddess

Completed Dear Jane Quilt
Wow!  Did I really make this quilt?  You bet I did!  The last time I posted this quilt and referred to myself as a DJ Goddess, I was contacted by the quilt police!  Yes they really exist!  LOL :-)  A fellow janiac sent me a private email to let me know that I hadn't reached "Goddess" status, because it was not yet quilted and bound.

As you can see it is quilted and bound!  I'm so happy with the quilting that Sue Baddley, from Summit Creek Quilts did on this quilt!  She is awesome and very fun to work with!!

Awesome Quilting by Sue Baddley
On other news, I'm still working on the quilts for camp, and about to finish up the "Sonic Pop".  You'll be surprised at the sashing color.  I did change it.  Stay tuned to see what I chose!

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!
