Grow Your Blog Party

Welcome to the Grow Your Blog Party that is being hosted by Vicki of 2 Bags Full!  Come to the party and stop at over 400 blogs and find new friends, new interests and share your blog with everyone! 

Vicki has suggested we chat about ourselves and share our blogs.  I'm into quilting and want to share with friends what I create.  I have tons of UFOs and I try to proclaim that I'm going to get all these quilts done so I actually use my blog as a journal of my accomplishments, failures, and as my to-do list!!!  I get so sidetracked with life and grandchildren that quilting seems to fall to the bottom  of the to-do list.  Anyway, if I don't post, it's because I didn't quilt and since it's a quilting journal, I steer away from too much personal life stuff!!! I try not to point out my mistakes, but that's mostly what I write about!!!

So, check out my some of my quilts and studio pics which need to update them already...things have changed, but it's getting th…

Catching Up on UFO's

Here's what I've been up to lately:
This is my crayon quilt. I just bought some yellow for the backing so I'm almost ready to quilt this. It's for my granddaughter and I'm hoping to get it quilted by next week. I can take it and add the binding during my visit.

Something for Valentine's Day. I bought the kit from Sew Lux, in fact, I bought two!!! Working on the second one as a Leader/Ender project. 

I'm a huge fan of Downton Abbey, so I bought some fabric and used one of Andover Fabrics' patterns. Just not in love with it, but...can you see the mistake?  I'm taking it apart as we speak. 

Not sure I shared, but I finally finished all those alphabet bean bags and did a couple bags for them. Here's one: happy that I'm finished and the kids are loving them. Seemed like a great idea and thought I could just throw them together, but, after a couple, I wanted to move onto a new project, so I did. LOL

This is my version of Quiltville&#…

Making Progress

So, I found the TV series, Downton Abbey over the past summer and I'm so in love with it, I wanted to make a quilt using the DA fabric line.  I didn't have anything in mind, so I went to the Andover Web site and just picked the quilt of the colors I liked. So, here's a pic of the blocks, just need some sashing and borders. Very easy and just enough of the same block not to get bored putting them together.  I like it, sort apologies for mess in the lower right hand corner - another unfinished project going on that's just hanging out there at the bottom of my design wall.

I've promised myself to work harder to get all these hand appliqued/BOMs finished this year or, at least, work on them.  So, thinking spring is coming...Block #1 of Chick Jubilee is half finished. 

This is my Quiltville Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt block that's almost finished.  I'm loving it, but it may be moved to a leaders/enders project, only I'd do a portion of a step in be…

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!
This is a pic of the Grand Illusion block of Quiltville's mystery quilt that I've been working on. 
I've finished a bunch of projects and promise to blog more often in 2015 (can't fault me if I falter!!!). 
More soon!
