RRCB step 1 finished

I pulled fabric but after Bonnie posted the instructions for step 1 to use 2 inch strips I went to my 2" bin and pulled green and pink and didn't even use my larger pieces. I love how the pink & green work together. Then I made too many and came up with this way to use them. I'm liking it.

Design Wall Monday 082310

Several things going today. All I like on the string quilt is hand sewing the binding down. This may wait until cooler weather and a chic flick. The log cabin is a precut noodle that I just had to have. To me there is not enough contrast between the light and dark. I knew this but wanted to get it sewed up and out of there as it does not play well with my stash. Maybe a back for a baby quilt for my next ggrandbaby if it is a girl. The design wall behind the ironing board has the ongoing project. I'm loving it and going slow so as to not mess it up. I have decided to add a narrow dark border then autumn leaves blocks around it. I don't know where I'll go from there.

Design wall

My quilting design wall looks the same as last week. But I've figured out how to do part of it. I had to stop and make a gift. This bag is for my favorite Auntie, in California, who I'm planning on visiting this September.

Always happy to see

I'm always glad to see these guys come. There were two of them and they made quick work of laying down our hay in the little meadow between our house and the road. We only got three bigs bales off of it but this was the second cutting this year.

I guess I need to change my profile as I'm now a great grandmother. I have seen the baby and held it but have not spent a lot of time with it. I'm so wanting to.

I've got the Egret done (He is beautiful in person) and purchased fabric to go with it. I've got plenty of the print so I'm ready to start designing it, which is the hardest part for me. But its becoming my favorite part.
Anyone have any ideas? lets have them.

I'm thinking of a small quilt that would fit across the back of my couch.

My work for this past weekend.
A pillow for my friend that admired mine. Done & ready to go.
Two burp cloths for my first GGson due in two weeks. Fun to do.
I decided to add another round of blocks on the log cabin instead of borders. I think I like it. Only 6 more to go.

Mom's birthday

I think Mom liked the quilt. At least she said she did.
A good time was had by all and the food was great

I finished a quilt two days ago and today gave it to my mom for her 84th Birthday. She loved it. It is brighter than anything I've ever done and I loved it. Machine appliqued butterflys on black kona cotton and batiks. The butterflys are from they are nice to work with.

UFO Finish

This quilt was pieced by a lady probably 40 years ago. Her granddaughter brought it to me to finish.
First I did some repairs then added a pretty red border. Next came quilting, label and binding. I think it is beautiful. Some of the fabrics are too cute. Probably from the 20 & 30's.

Fairyland block number 1. When I finished this block I wanted to do it again it was so much fun. I've started #3.

Future sewist in the works.

A fun day My son and family came and spent a day and night with us.

I showed DIL how to run the Babylock Embroidery machine and she fell in love. She got block two finished. The kids were glued to the machine and DIL really learned quick.
