Thought i would let ya'll see what i am working on its not done. Got behind with Thanksgiving and birthdays and my oldest sisters wedding but i will get it finished during late Jan 2011. Got to hand quilt it. The hexagons are all hand sewed together. It is basted and ready to go in the frame. Hope you enjoy.
My sister's wedding. i caught them kissing. Big congrats to both of them. Well that's all for now.
Just finished this Nine Patch. The customer put this top together. I hand quilted it for her. I love the older fabric's in this quilt. Love all the reds too. Got more quilts going. Just takes a while to finish them. Will post more pic's later. Hand sewed Binding.
This is the back of the quilt. Hand quilted 4 inch squares.
Cut your batting and back about 1/2" larger than the front. Lay out as in picture and sew 1/2" around leaving an opening to turn the right side out. Trim close after sewing and before you turn it.
Now you are almost done. After you turn to the right side you need to close the open end. I sewed around mine with 2 rows of stitches. To finish stitch in the ditch. All done. I made this set of four and gave it to my sister-in-law. (she loved it) Feel free to copy and paste and make your own set with fabric you love.
I decided while i am here to go ahead and add the place mats. They are easy to make and fun for a small project. These make nice gifts too. Press all of row 1 seams in one direction. I press to the dark side.
Howdy everyone. Well its been a little while so i thought i would catch you up on what i have been doing. First i got sick. (now better) Second we just had a vacation.We stayed close to home; but had a blast. Now i guess its back to sewing and quilting along with other projects. You know all of us quilters have more than one project going at a time. Here are some pic's for you to enjoy.

Now its time to get back to my quilts. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for coming by Comments are welcome.
Just a little note to let you know i have been making crochet hats and footsie's for everyone. I have gotten a little behind on my quilting but i will get back to it.
Took a little break from the computer. I really needed it. Had problems with my DSL which was due to my provider. SO i guess it was the perfect time for my break.
Now time to get back to my quilting. I am working on the one i last told you about. Got all the fabric's cut. Now got to make some bias strips for the trim around the flowers. Then i might be ready to sew this one together. Pic's when i get it done. May be a little while cause there is a lot of sewing to do.
Howdy! Thought i would update with pic's of what i have been making. You know those little projects that come up. These are crochet-ed hats for my grandkids. One for my sis for her birthday and a dress for my granddaughter for her birthday that's what she wanted. All taken on my camera i got for Christmas. hope you enjoy. If you look under some of these pic's you will see the parts of the quilt i still have to cut out. These are all the flower parts.

Well the holidays are over . I hope each of you had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hope the food and company was a special time for you. I was lucky to spend time with my family. I received a new Digital camera and a Flip Cam for Christmas. My family knew what i wanted and blessed me with it. Now i think i am special. LOL! Now i have no excuse not to take pictures to share with you all.
Well now its time to get back to my love of quilting. I have started cutting out one. It will take me longer to make this one. Its going to be a queen size. Will be beautiful when done. The pattern is of a wall hanging but i have chose to make it into a quilt. Here is the picture from the book. Can you see all the flowers each one has to be cut out. That's what i am doing now. 4 buds /4pedals and 4 green pedals for each block. So if i am making a queen i will need OMG almost 2,000 little pieces. So if you don't here from me for a little bit you will know what i am doing. Oh yeah i did make a few little things for my Granddaughter. She is into scarf's. She wants me to make her a flowing dress for her Birthday. Well you know how Grandmom's are. We try to please and spoil them rotten. :D that's me. Will add pictures later cause they are still on my camera.
