A New Project!

I started a new project this weekend. My SIL asked for a Chicago Bears Quilt for my Grandson. Of course!!
Good Golly, I have to figure out this photo editing! Chicago Bears colors include orange! Really this is Kona Orange but I cannot make it look that way!  Anyhoo,  these are the fabrics I am using..

Cut into 5 inch squares.

A possible layout.

What I am working on...

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Despite all our rain which we needed, it was very nice
Thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions for a new photo host program.  I have been experimenting, your eyes will tell me!

So, what have I been up to?

Of course
The Wizard of Oz Quilt.  Here is a sneak peek.

I am also working on a super fun Halloween Project.  Now this is not for the
WICKED BLOG HOP  starting soon. This is for ,well, when I get it done!!

This is an Amy Bradley Design.
How cute is this?!
She has so many darling patterns, which can be found

This is such a fun pattern and much easier than it looks!
I do not applique and I am able to make this beauty.

NOW,  I am not found of purple nor batiks, but look what I picked for the background squares! Amy picked just the right color. I could not change her choice. It was perfect!

I fused, traced and cut the pieces for each character.   I started with Frankie!

Here He is on an Applique Pressing Sheet. If you do not have one, this is an item you need!

The next step was to fuse him to the background and add the embellishments.

Hmm, I thought that it would be hard to hand quilt around all the pieces so I devised a plan of my own.

I decided, (with help from a friend, thanks Elaine), to make and quilt the top first.  Then I would add my characters and embellish.
Here is where I am now...

Of course any free time is giving to my
Katie Quilt!

I think this will keep me busy for a while.


Now I want all of you to have a fun and creative week!
Happy Sewing!

Homecoming 2012

Feel free to stop here...Family Pictures

Maggie's Homecoming 2012

Last Saturday was Homecoming for Maggie. She was so lucky the weather was beautiful. She was also lucky as both sisters arrived to help her, with her hair and make-up!


Now Maggie is not really that tall, her wonderful, fun loving, charming (you get the picture) Mom allowed her to get these super fun shoes!  She practiced all week walking! LOL!!   They happen to be one of her school colors.

Here she is...

When did I say she could grow up!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!
