Here are the roses my hubby bought  for me, and we went out to lunch, too.

I made us both mug rugs.

  It was  an overcast day, but today we're having sunshine!  Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day,too.

Looks Like a Road Map

Where am I going?

Maybe another view will help you....

Here's the other side of the map.  I've got 4 - 3" outer "sky" colored borders cut and ready as soon as I pull off the paper.
Now how to quilt it?

Leaving the paper peeling until   TV time tonight.


New Fabric - New Outlook

It's been a looooong time since I bought anything, (fabric 2 years maybe) but there was this sale at Hancock's of Paducah ...(batiks for $4.99 and $5..99 per yard - full yards required).

 The camera didn't pick up the bits of pink and lavender in this piece.  It's mostly a tan and grey on a white background. It's a bit more pronounced in person.

I've been needing some lights - I want to make the Depression block and some other patterns that depend on light lights, and my stash is mostly bright saturated colors.
Happy Thursday,

Squirrel Project

You know I've been working on some little airplanes for a baby quilt... well, I got a new pattern from Claudia Hasenbach .  She designs really great

I enjoyed making this one. 

We've got some -5 temps in the forecast for this week. Hope you all are keeping warm.

More Airplanes

This might be all the planes this boy baby quilt gets...

What I want to do is enclose that blue and white fabric on the ironing board in the foreground with planes... see if it turns out big enough. Paper is still on them, so there is that to remove, too.  Then how to quilt?  Sending this along to link up at Rainbow Scrap Challenge here.
Happy Weekend!

Finished in 2018

There wouldn't be much of a post here if I only showed finished quilts from 2018... You know me, I'm slow.  But I did finish some involved paper pieced blocks. Wanna see?


 for H2H

 for H2H

These 3 flag blocks were for Alicia's friend who passed.

This is one of a variety of small blocks made into mug rugs for my sister.

This quilt is now finished and ready to send - just need an address.
Working on the airplanes and circles now.  I don't know why, but I liked the patterns (paper pieced, don't ya know).
I also worked on a failed swan...just couldn't get the beak to work out - no picture either.
I did finish 3 quilts, and some of those paper pieced blocks took longer than the quilts.
So that was 2018.  No resolutions, no plans other than to do better.  I think I can manage that one, but I've set the bar pretty low.
Hope you have a wonderful New Year, and fun tonight.
