falling behind

I have only three more blocks to complete my "other" pinwheel sampler quilt.  I had intended to get to them tonight but it didn't happen.  Maybe tomorrow ... I'm still deciding on the sashing  -- whether I want blue or white.  I'm leaning toward white, but I don't have much white left which makes me think I should go with blue.


This is a picture Brieanna took of her boys! too cute!

clean up required

Remember how I had my 200th post a few weeks ago (or whenever).  It turns out that it wasn't really my 200th post.  I went through my posts and added tags (well a "quilting" tag on appropriate entries) and found there were a bunch of posts that I had never posted.  So this is actually my 195th post.  This means I get to celebrate 200 again!! ha!

Two pictures.

another quilt completed

here's a picture of the quilt I just completed.  I wrapped it and gave it away today, too.  I hope the recipient likes it and uses it.


I need to get back to work on my other pinwheel sampler.  I have kind of left it for a while.  I think I only have about 10 more blocks to make and they are fairly easy ones .. I'm just procrastinating.

Had a good weekend, quiet and relaxing (though I didn't get my laundry done).

old friends

I got a friend request on facebook from someone I hadn't seen for at least 20 years.  I had been thinking about her but wasn't able to find her myself on fb.  It is really great the way you can reconnect!  I'm also glad I have a distinct/different name because it makes it easier for people to find me.  Yay!

Baby Quilt

Attached is a quilt top that I made this weekend as a baby gift for one of Paul Jr.'s friends who is having a baby.  I wanted to do it in green but only had yellow in my "stash".  

It's fun having a stash.  

Now I need to get back to work on my "other pinwheel sampler" and Robin's quilt. I'm going to rip out what I've already done on R's quilt and re-sew it.  I need a different pattern.

The 200th Post

Soooo, this is my 200th post. Hard to believe. I wanted to make this something special but decided to just upload pictures of my finished pinwheel sampler quilt.

It's hard to take a picture to see the whole thing, and even with seeing the whole quilt you can't see the quilting.  


This is the quilt on one of the beds.  I guess it is a lap-sized quilt - somewhere around 60 x 60.


This shows the backing as well.  I think it looks pretty good.

Anyway, happy posting!!
