Busy Busy Busy

Here is a little peek at what I have been working on this week. It has been a quilt for Sonia. She loves her bright colored quilt I made this summer is not really what she wanted. (I used my stash with that one) She wanted to pick some fabrics. Well when she saw these Heather Ross Fabrics she had to have them! The are so pretty and really do call her name. So I have been working on a quilt for her. Her Birthday is coming up.
Here is a close up of the blocks.

Oh and then I took every possible scrap and made blocks for me to have a wall quilt. If I can I might squeeze out a throw. I just love these Heather Ross prints. Pictures of that will be coming soon.

My children and thier new quilts.

I have been busy making each of my children a quilt. I have 3 down just one child to go. His will be for Christmas.

But here are the 3 that I have made.

First Joey who is off to college. So he need a quilt for his dorm.

Next is by daughter Sonia. She is my sunshine. Always bright and happy, well almost always. This quilt was made for the Old Red Barn Quilt Along. Lots of fun .

Number 3 goes to my beautiful baby daughter Savannah her quilt was huge. She wanted it for her water bed. This one was made with Old Red Bard Quilt Along #3 Wonky Blocks.

#4 is in progress.

Where has the time gone?

Oh My! I am sorry I have not posted in so long. I have been very busy with all kinds of things. Lots of great things too!

The HQH Quilt show was wonderful. There are lots of talented quilts in my guild. I entered my Nativity Quilt and 2 quilted jackets. Surprise!! I won third place on one of my jackets.

The blue and white jacket on the right of the picture is also mine.

My winning jacket is made of many batiks and I tried several new techniques. I entered this in my County Fair in Indiana and they absolutely hated it! Here in Alabama they loved it so you just never know.

My Nativity Quilt is made from the Paper Panache Pattern "Nativity Advent" It is paper pieced. See a previous post for more about this quilt.
