Val's Giveaway!

butterflies shown from a previous blog

I love blogging... you wouldn't know it from the few blogs I've written lately, but I do enjoy it. I need something to blog about, though.  I haven't done much to show off lately.  Val from Val's Quilting Studio has given me a reason. She is having a giveaway at her blog. Go on over there and see what's up.
I love her blog recycling linky party. It's a chance to look at previous blogs on a given subject. I especially like looking through mine for something to share.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Pink Geese

You know how I like to paper piece.  I've been missing it, soooooo

I already have 5 strips of turquois geese, so I made pink ones ...

I've got 2 more strips to make in pink.  I need to make a quilt for my nephew's wedding now . He's getting married July 15 so I'd better get to it.  Wish me luck.

Have a wonderful weekend.

H2H Finish

Woohoo! I just now finished the second quilt for H2H. 

 Finished the binding this morning - machined on both sides, sew easy and sew quick. Below are some of my favorite oranges. This one is for Happy Chemo.

And the one below is for the Canadian choice who wanted flimsies. It was really fun to make and not have to worry about binding or quilting.  I'd make this quilt again.

I'm sorry, Sarah, that I took so long to get finished.  Thanks for the extension.

This is my very first Finish It Up Friday post... post #599.  I'm listing it at crazy mom quilts  Come back for a giveaway on post 600.
Have a wonderful weekend.

My Spring Flowers

Yes, the only flowers we have are the ones indoors.  We had a blizzard last week and now all that snow is gone. Tulips are coming up, but just the leaves so far.
This first picture is of a geranium that my Hubby got from one of the teachers he worked for last year. (He's a substitute teacher since we moved here and the taxes are so high we need help paying our bills.)

 The above and one below are my Crown of Thorns blooming. The flowers are an intense red orange, but the sunshine bleached the color out on the pictures.

And you know this one... it blooms almost all the time.  So I do have some cheery flowers - but not the spring flowers you all are showing. Heck, we still have snow in the forecast .. (You know weathermen like to be wrong.)

Happy Monday!

Hubby Said

He said I should share this with you.

I like how this one is turning out. I love the scalding bright colors.  We have a lot of white all around - this warms up the territory a bit.

Started a New One

I know this is going to come as a shock to you all, but I've been working on a new quilt this week....
I've been wanting to make this quilt pattern for a while, and just had troubles deciding on the colors.
Here's what I've got so far.

80 blocks like these 8.  Orange parts are 4.5" X  6.5" and the aqua print (that has a small orange element) is 6.5" X  1.5". Easy to cut, easy to sew.

Now on to the design wall.....

Happy Weekend, my Pretties.

It's a Flimsy!

Just finished the flimsy this afternoon...

\It's 11 sqs  x  13, each square is 4"  Now for batting and backing.  I have some batting from my Sister and some backing from my  friend, Paulette.  A group effort.  It takes a village.

Happy Tuesday,
