About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Hump Day!

This is the pile of fabric I've been staring at for several days.
I have added and subtracted fabrics for days…
It is now time to turn this into something.
I'll check back later! (Hopefully with some progress?)

This pattern is called Moondance…..By Villa Rosa Designs.

I did some simple straight line quilting.  My intention was to go in the opposite direction as well, but I ran out of thread!

An Ikea fabric, gifted by my friend Jessica, worked out well for the back.

A Breezy Sunday….

The Quilt Chicks came to the farm for the weekend and we shared our Scrappy Trips Tops….
I can only share 2 since one of the tops is part of a Dual Challenge….so I will wait to show that until a later date.
Nancy's …made with flannel….

Mine…made with thrifted shirts.
I'm really looking forward to getting this one quilted….It's a big one so I'm not sure if I will do it myself or not.

That's all for now!
