Just a picture to bring you up to date on the new puppy.  She is 3 months old now.  This is her favorite way to sleep.   She is a very happy puppy.


A customer brought be 24 old quilt blocks.  All hand pieced.  All different sizes, but close to 12 1/2 inches unfinished.  And she wanted a KING size quilt.  I had to make one more block to have enough.  It is the very middle block,  not bad.  It took me quite a while to get this made and finished, but it is done.  Yea!!!  I quilted using a Baptist Fan pano.  I thought that would go with the old fashion blocks, and it did. 

Happy Quilting, Vicki

Celtic Solstice

A Bonnie Hunter Mystery.  She does a mystery quilt every year starting just after Thanksgiving.  If you are interested click HERE to go to her blog, where the instructions are.   She puts out a new step every Friday. The picture above is my pallet.  I decided to keep the neutral all the same fabric.  Mainly because I didn't have much in the right color.  These bights need a whitish background.  beige would be awful.  Below is step 1.  As you can see I am behind one step.  I should be on step 2.  Well, I am sort of.  One is cut out and 2 is now cut out.  That is half the battle.  Now to find time to sew. LOL
Here is step 2 ready to sew.  Back to when I have the time. Happy Quilting, Vicki
