Cowboy Quilt

Here is a little quilt I am working on for a great nephew. WOW! No grands, but a great nephew. That is ok. I can wait for DS to get out of college and find the right gal. I fussy cut cowboys for the center of the stars. I have red bandanna fabric for the back of this quilt. There again the picture came out a little orange. I have got to read the manual again on
this camera.

Snowman Class

OK, Judy, I know you think I have been goofing off. But I have been working on my snow man. I have the applique finished. YEAH!!! I am working on the checker board boarder. Almost finished with it. another YEAH!! The snowmen don't have eyes and mouths yet because I am going to use buttons after it is quilted. It will be sooo cool. No pun intended, well maybe a little one. LOL

More Strip Twist

I found this wonderful fabric while I was in the mountain. It is printed with 2 1/2 inch stripes of black and white prints. I will not have to sew strips together to make another strip twist. I think it will make a neat ST. Isn't this cool fabric.

Strip Twist

I did make Strip Twist, from Quiltvillechat challenge. Now I can post a picture. I think it turned out great. It is not quilted yet. Customers quilts come first. I made some extra block, so they will go into a charity quilt for our guild. I really like this quilt.

I think this new camera is making all the pictures a little yellow or orange??? I haven't figured it out yet.


I finially did it. I bought a new digital camera. Took some pictures of projects I am working on. Soooo, we are going to see how they come out. LOL

This little thing, because it is not anything yet, is made from 40, 2 1/2 inch strips. I was trying to inmate a jelly roll, sence I didnt have one. These are scraps left over from other projects. Mostly kids quilts. I saw something like this in Florida last summer. It was made from feed sack reproductions. I havent found a pattern, so I made one up. LOL Sew 2 strips together lenthwise, cut in half crosswise and stack on top of each other, matching fabrics. The use a 60 degree ruler or the 60 degree line on your 6 X 12 ruler and cut hexagons. You get 2 blocks out of each set, that are opsite colors. I just love this look. I am going to add another set of 40 to see how big this gets. Right now it is not big enough. If anyone had seen the pattern, please let me know where. I think I might write a toutorial, with pictures, when I make the next set.
The Camera Worked!!!!!!!!!!
