Blogger's Quilt Festival

Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am once again participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival being organised by Amy of Amy's Creative Side from October 29 - November 5. The Blogger's Quilt Festival is an online quilt festival where bloggers from around the world showcase a quilt - once you have had a look here, head on over and take some time viewing the other wonderful quilts.
This time I would like to share a quilt that I made for my soon to be daughter-in-law. She loves blue ,so I decided I wanted it to be ocean like. So I chose the fabrics with that in mind. I also wanted it to have a modern quilt feel. I decied to just kind of wing it. Yes, it was scary but I just sketched out what I wanted and then had to go with what I got out of the 2 jelly rolls that I used. I was happy with the results ,but more than that she really loves it too. ^_^
I gave it to Heather on her birthday, but that was also the day that my son asked her to marry him. :-), yes it was a big day! I talked about making the quilt here and then when she received it here.

 Heather sent me this picture when she got back to her apartment and put it on her bed.

Sleeping Beauty

The latest play my family has been involved in was Sleeping Beauty. Not only was it a fun show but it was absolutely beautiful to look at. The set and costumes were just amazing. My oldest daughter and husband who are usually on stage in a show, were join by our youngest daughter on stage. She loves to work backstage and was talked into joining them on stage. Not sure she will be on stage again soon, so I worked hard to get a couple of special pictures of her.

Thank You

I just want to thank those of you that have sent good wishes while I was so sick. Now after lots of medacations I am finally starting to feel better.  :-)

Also I would like to explain why your comments are being moderated. I was getting spammed by Japanese sites that we not appropriate. I could not stop it, so this way they do not appear. Unfortunately I have missed some of your messages for a week or more as I was not on my blog much while I was so ill.

Always Sewing

Leaves for Fall

This is my latest creation. It was quick and fun to make. I used a free pattern and  fabrics that I had, so the only thing I bought was the batting. :)

I can't tell you how much I love this fun little quilt. I have made so many large quilts lately, I forgot how nice and easy a wall quilt can be. As I hung this I thought about my Nativity Quilt that took years to make.
