Wedding Presant

My sisters oldest child is getting married Aug. 5.  This is the quilt she made for them.  she made the top and sent it to me to quilt.  Finished it today.  Now to mail back to her, so she can get the binding on.  It turned out great.  I used gold thread and quilted with  a swirl design.  I think they will be happy with it.  The future DIL pick out the border fabric and Terri pulled colors from it to make the quilt.  I know you cant see the border good, but it is brown with  small flowers of these different colors.

I think I a caught up for now, so good nite and Happy Quilting,


Another UFO bites the dust, yea!!  This is my class from 2010 QSC Pieceable Retreat.  The class was a mystery quilt.  The name of the quilt is the Maltese Star, after....  You guessed it the Maltese Falcon.  This is the second mystery class I have taken from Nancy Miller.  It is always fun and a great quilt. 

The Lydia Project Bags

The Lydia Project gives bags to women undergoing treatments for cancer.  Volunteers make the bags.  They send pre-cut kits and off the sewers go.  I have know about this for a few years.  The director has been after me to make bags.  After going on a quilt retreat with my Aiken quilt friends, where we made bags, I decided to keep making bags.  So  they sent me 5 kits.  I made them and sent them back.  Now I have 5 more to make.  Maybe a good July 4th project.  They are fully lined and wonderful colors.  For more info you can contact them at


Disappearing Nine Patch.  Made for a class I taught at our quilt shop, A Stitch-N-Time, Again.  I had 4 wonderful students and we learned a lot.   Three of there were nurses,  thank goodness we had no cut thumbs. LOL                                                            

Catching up

Sorry, I havent Blogged in awhile.  I have been here.  Been having back trouble.  Better now and on the way to recovery.  Lots of tests.  Torn disc at L5,  effecting the sciatic nerve down my right leg. on pain meds and doing physical therapy and feeling much better. now.  finally got some quilting caught up, so I have some pic to show.  Yea!! pic are the best.  

Verity, antique lone star.  Her husbands grandmother pieced this.  I struggled a long time before I quilted it, because it was a little wobbly.  But, the center was flat.  which is great for these quilts.
