It's That Time Again!!


I spent way too much time looking at Google Images but, cleaning not sewing, come on!!

First do not forget to put on your lipstick. No need to give up your appearance as you clean!


Wear rubber gloves to keep you hands soft, clean and ready for sewing.


and having pretty supplies makes the job fun!











Get the whole family involved!



Yes, even the tiniest one can help!


Blast that music baby!




Whew, I will be pooped!


But a girl can dream.....


and if she is really good all her dreams can come true!!





Oh joy to a clean house!!


See everyone in a week!!

Another Finish

Slowly the quilts I started in 2013 are getting finished.

Oh for the days when I can take my quilts out for a photo shoot and not in the house!!
My Coral Quilt
The Coral Quilt went from this:



to this flimsy


To this warm and crinkly quilt fresh from the dryer.






Have a wonderful weekend. I hope you get to do something you love.

A Finish

It has been very quite on the sewing front the last week or so, many birthdays to celebrate.
Little T turned 5!
Wow how time flies!!

He had a bowling party and then home for a family party. 
Our little man is growing up!




All I manged to do this week was a binding! 
 But I am thrilled it is done.

My Barn Quilt.


This is the first quilt that I have made that I sent to a long-armer.  I had no idea how to quilt this quilt. I am thrilled with how it turned out!



We choose a pretty over all pattern and she even used different color threads on the back to match my fabrics!


I added a scrappy binding to tie it all together



Now it is off to hang in it's new spot.


Happy Sewing!.

My Reversible Quilt

Before I talk about this quilt I would like to thank everyone for helping me with my Hexie search.  You lead me to many great spots! In helping me I hope others were also helped. I now know what I am going to do with my hexie flowers.
But that will be a different post for another day. Thank you!

Now on to today.
A while ago there was a thought that there might be a Peanuts Blog Hop. Unfortunately that did not materialize. So, I decided to go ahead and use the fabrics I had be saving for the project.

I saw this pattern at a quilt shop and just fell in love with it so I quickly bought the fabrics.
This is my kind of quilt, strips!  Thar's all it was, just strips!

In no time the top was done. But I needed a backing. So, what to you know but on that same day I found the Berenstain Bear Fabric.

This would combine my two loves.
I ador anything Peanuts and I love the Berenstain Bear Books.  They were read over and over to my three girls and now to my grand-babies. So here she is, my reversible quilt!


Fabrics by Quilting Treasures.



I did not have the heart to cut this fabric. Even if I fussy cut some blocks I would have lost the cute print. So it became a great backing.

Fabric by Moda.




♫  ♫  ♪ We are the Berenstain Bears
We live in a split level tree-house

Are as happy as we can be.   ♪ ♪


Have a wonderful weekend!

Searching?

I am hoping someone out in blog-land may know what I am looking for...
I have made many Red White and Blue Hexies. Now it is time to make them into .....something.



 I saw on a blog a quilt with red white and blue hexies. She took a square of white fabric and put a hexie flower on the square. She then joined the squares into a quilt. I loved this affect and thought I had saved the picture/pattern. I have looked through all my folders, my favorites, google images, pinterest, flickr, My Feedly, My Bloglovin, My reader list. I have searched individual blogs.
But to no avail.
If anyone has an idea of the quilt/pattern would you please help me?

Thank you so much.
Have a wonderful weekend and do something you love.
Little T is turning 5 on Sunday!  So party time.


Worthwhile Cause


I know many of us participate in QOV (Quilts of Valor) , especially my friend Elaine, but there are some of us that want to help but like me are worried about their skill leval 

Well!!

I just found
Kevin the Quilter
He is setting up a block drive.
Super easy block even I can make!
So,
I will be participating in this endeavor and hope you will too.
All the details are
