Paper Piecing Project

It's a secret... I don't think any of you will recognize this bit of it. But I just had to do some paper piecing. It's been a long time.

So far this is all I've done.... more to come.

Finished the H2H for 2016

Just finished the binding.... pink.  Here's the quilt (held up by the Zombie Hubby Hands).


and this is the backing fabric.

It's getting sent to Happy Chemo... in honor of my Daughter.  As long as I can quilt and Sarah runs her charity, I'll make one for this charity. 

Hope you are having some lovely spring weather. We got up to 65 today!

Spring? in Superior W

Pictures taken yesterday = Wednesday. (Saturday we are forecasted to have SNOW again.)

 Rhubarb - got any good recipes?  I need the kind with little sugar or a sugar substitute.  I'm too sweet already.

 Daffodils just started .... anybody know what the pink composite flower is? I've got a lot of it.

 Sorry this is so blurry. Anybody recognize it? 
I'm so happy to see the tulips coming up. I've got yellow and white in other gardens. (Notice it was so overcast the dandelions didn't open for the day.) AND there will be irises! I have missed having those since the 90s.
Today I'm finishing my H2H quilt. 3/4 of the binding left to do, then I'll show it off again.
Thanks for stopping in. I'd love if you left a comment.

H2H being quilted

I'm having a devil of a time getting this one done. The thread keeps breaking. I've rethreaded, changed the needles twice, next I'm checking the bobbin for near emptiness, and last I'll change spools.
Here's the quilt on the machine.

I'm quilting a zig zag pattern in the rows that parallels the row before. I like the look, but all that pivoting might be the stress on the thread.

Linking up with the H2H site.  Go on over there and look at the other charity entries. It's my favorite charity.

P.S. Happy Mom's Day!

Latest picture of GGson

Latest picture of the Great Grandboy! Just turned 3 months old and at 5-6 months old on motor skills, personality. Isn't he cute!  GG is so proud.

In sewing news - I started quilting the H2H quilt. Got 5 rows done. Just doing a zig zag down each row.  I like the look. Picture when it's done.

H2H Flimsy Finished and Ironed

Yay! I wish I had worked more steadily on this.... It looks so much better after it was ironed.

Here's a center look at the flimsy finish.   Some close-ups below.

I started with a busy and colorful focus fabric. I like using multiple white on white prints, too. Keeps me from getting bored.

And here's my Christmas cactus blooming waaay late or waaay early.

That's the latest here. Thanks for tuning in.

Latest picture of my Great Grandson

Here's the latest picture of my Great Grandson... Isn't he cute?

Just thought I'd keep you posted.

Nearly have the top done for my H2H quilt.  I'll take some pictures and show it off then.

Happy Monday! So glad I'm retired.
