Quilting, quilting, quilting!!

These stack and whack style blocks have been percolating in the back of the closet for 6 years probably! They were supposed to be a vest way back when, and now I think what an ugly vest that would be, so I turned it into a quit to be donated.
This is a strippy tumbler quilt, a fun one to piece using leftover strings, and fun to quilt with freehand ferns.

More Finishes

These 2 quilts will be donated to our Ronald McDonald house.
I Think this first one is a Take 5 pattern, quilted a freehand dwirling in the center that I learned from The Pajama Quilter's DVD and a freehand border treatment called Onions and Garlic that I saw on Tamarak's blog.




This purple bordered one is a Tumbler quilt, the interior of the quilt is a freehand technique from Patsy Thompsons DVD. Hopefully a couple childern will be warm and cuddly using these. It is just such a wonderful feeling to donate them.

Project Linus quilts


Just finished binding these 4 quilts between yesterday and today and delivered them to Project Linus. It is so rewarding to donate them to a worthy organization.

Whew I am really tired tonight, but I did manage to get a lot done today. Finished up this string tumbler that I started a week or more ago. Yesterday I had a friend over and she started one and I worked more on this. Finished it up this morning. The inspiration for this quilt came from http://www.maryquilts.com/strings/string-tumblers/ Thanks Mary. It's an awesome way to use leftovers from other projects.
I then moved onto another charity quilt, this one I used a charm pack of Wizard of Oz fabrics and navy background. This is a free pattern I found here http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2011/02/movin-on-up.html Thanks Amanda Jean!,

Happy Valentines Day!


I spent the day quilting, what else, LOL. Well the hubbs and I went out last night for dinner, had to celebrate early so he could still go to league tonight.
Even though I quilted this quilt a couple years ago it is still one of my favorites and is fitting to show today.

Ok gonna try this again I wanted the pictures at the bottom of the post. And I wanted to mention that I have also been doing some knitting of scarves for charity too, found a couple great free machine knitting patterns online to make on my Brother 930 knitting machine. The curly one is the potato chip scarf, sorry I don't remember where I got the info from on this one. The 3 grey scarves I got the idea from Diane here...http://diananatters.blogspot.com/ it is her tuck rib scarf, fun and easy to do. Thanks Diane!



So yep it's been a long time ago that I started this blog and have not kept up to date as you can well see, LOL. And I hate blogs that do that, go figure!
I have been keeping busy so far this year with piecing several quilt tops for charity in Jan. and I went to a wonderful quilt retreat, had so much fun with friends. This month, I am trying to get lots of those quilt tops quilted and bound and maybe even out the door. Here are a few pic's of some.
