Lisa's Quilt

I know this is not a great picture of this quilt but I just washed it and I did not want to get cat hair on it... This quilt is King size, the pattern is "Turning Twenty"...  Lisa made the quilt top, Her mother (my sister) put the borders on and did the binding, and I quilted it... We call this quilt a family quilt, because we all had a part in it... This is the first quilt top that Lisa has made and she did a great job on her own with little instructions.... Great job on all our parts... :)

Any Occasion Tablerunner

This is the tablerunner I made for my sister's friend Pam.... Pam let us stay at her house while we were in Paducah... This pattern was a quick and easy to do... I needed to do a quick pattern, because I did not have much time to get one done.... This was part of a Thank You gift for letting us stay with her ....Pam's kitchen is blue and this went great in on her kitchen table.... Thanks again Pam for letting us stay with you... We enjoyed you and your fur children..... :)

A Must Read Book

What a wonderful story...I can never get enough of the Elm Creek Quilters and their lives... Jennifer's books are a easy read and the people she write's about are wonderful... So, if you haven't read this you must get it and enjoy it... I did :)

These six blocks I got off the blog from "Kviltstina" ... She posted these free pattern's for Valentine Day, in the month of Febuary.... I took these with me when I went to CT .... These blocks are small and easy to travel with... I Stitched them on eyelet material ... If you click on the picture you can see the mterial and the detail of the hearts ... I am not sure how I will use them ... I might use them as label's or make a table topper ... You will have to wait and see later on ... These were fun to do and quick and easy .... :)
