Finished!

117 6" Star Blocks!
 
Wooo-hooo!! I've finished all 117 star blocks for "A Quilt for Alice", by Bonnie Blue Quilts, 2010!  This is the quilt that my friend Pam and I have been working on.  We enlarged the blocks, and added blocks, to make it a king size quilt!  I'm always wanting to make my quilts bigger, or change something in the patterns. I feel like I've been making blocks forever! CRAZY!!  NEVER AGAIN!!  I'm ready to cut the sashing and put the thing together!

Now it's time to move on to one of these other UFO's I've been working on.  I decided I'm really not going to start a new project until the current projects are done!  Quilting should be fun not stressful!  When I have too many projects going, I'm seen to get stressed and not enjoy the process.

Happy Quilting to Everyone, Everywhere!

I'm Back!

Leatha's Quilt, Elmira, New York
What a great time I had visiting my dear, dear, friend in Owego, New York!  We laughed till we cried, and we cried till we laughed!  We really enjoyed ourselves at the Owego Strawberry Festival.  The strawberries were everywhere and we just drank them up!  LOL:-)

While visiting one of my friend's cousins, we looked over the family quilts that had been left to her.  The one pictured here is a true 1930's, as you can see.  It was so fun, to look at this and several others.  They knew who made them and when she lived. This certainly added to their value in every way!

Now that I'm home, I'm hoping I can find some time to get to all these quilt projects, I have waiting for me.

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!

a Great Class!

This past Saturday we finished the Jelly Roll Diamond Quilt class here at my place.  We all had a blast!  This quilt is just gorgeous, and was finished by Donna!  Hard to believe, but a quilt completed before the end of the day!  It was a two day class separated by a month, but gee wiz!!  I think it was still an awesome achievement!  The biggest difficulty that I could see with this project, was that the written directions were incomplete, and awful at best.  That's why it's good to take it as a class and we all thank Sue for teaching it!!  Good directions are must for writing patterns!



I'm also showing you a finished quilt from our quilt camp this past Spring.  I love this quilt and the colors are great!  This one was done by my friend Paula!  Yeah Paula!  You have seen the one I've been working on, here on my blog, several times.   Not finished yet, of course.  That seems to be my MO these days!

Happy Quilting Everyone, Everywhere!
