Another Start

Decided I would start another quilt to piece along with my Blue Ridge Beauty quilt. This pattern I found in a Kim Brackett book called "Scrap-Basket Surprises". I am using my Bliss FQ Bundle for this quilt so I am calling it "Pure Bliss". The piecing of this block is different but I have the hang of it now.

I am loving this quilt already!!

Ready to Start!

I finished cutting all my little pieces for Blue Ridge Beauty except for the borders,I may have to buy some yardage for them but will have to see how the colors look when they are all pieced together, will start that process tomorrow. I can hardly wait to see what it looks like!

I know I am going to love it!!

Just Had To Do It!

Yes, I just have to do it! I keep looking at Bonnie Hunter's "Blue Ridge Beauty" and I just have to get started on it. I have alot of blue scraps sitting around, I really need to get some of my fabric sorted by color, and so I thought now is the time to start using some of these up. So I started cutting this afternoon. I also put a friends quilt in my Gammill and so when I get tired of quilting I can sit down and sew little pieces together.
I am not going to get in a hurry on this one. Just going to take my time and do some sorting of scraps along the way. Who know what treasures I might find that I have forgotten about. :D

A Very Old Quilt Finsih

I feel so good! This little quilt has been making me feel so guilty for so long I finally dug it out and finished it!! It is happy and so am I. LOL I must confess I quilted it by stitching it with my sewing machine, how bad am I? Oh well, if I didn't do it quick it would still be in the corner, just had to do it! Doesn't it feel good to call a quilt done, no matter what the size??? ABSOLUTELY!

Another Finish!

Another wonderful quilt is done! My friend Angela pieced this quilt for me as a trade for me quilting one of her quilts, I really think I get the better end of this exchange. She did a wonderful job of piecing and I love how it turned out. The colors make me feel warmer than the temps outside right now.

I have to pick out another kit for Angela to do since she has a couple of quilts coming my way to quilt. Gotta love a trade like this, I am very blessed!

Baby's New Quilt

Finally finished this adorable baby quilt for a sweet little girl that will be arriving soon. I made this quilt in a class taught by Carrie Nelson a few years ago. She is such a hoot and if you ever have the chance to take a class of hers do!! I love her sense of humor and she is so helpful and down to earth. I just can't say enough good things about her.
I know the little one that will receive this quilt will love it for years to come!

I am SO happy this quilt is finally done! It seemed as if this quilt multiplied pieces every night and that I would never finish it. I absolutely love it and this will be a keeper for me, no giving it away. :D Thanks so much to Bonnie and I am looking forward to the next mystery she will come up with!!

Gotta Love Jo Morton

Well, I finally cashed in my Christmas Gift Certificates and this is what I got, Jo Morton FQ bundle and some pinks I was needing! I love the green and pink together! I have no idea what these fabrics will become so in the meantime I will be looking at them and just enjoying the view!

My family knows what I love and they are the best at providing the gift certificates!!
I would like to thank all you wonderful women that have commented on my blog. I am so bad at writing back and thanking everyone for commenting! I get sidetracked when I get on the computer and never finish what I originally got on the computer to do. :=( Know that I really do appreciate it and hopefully will get better at this in this brand new year!! :-)

Progress & Surprise

I am finally on the downhill slide with Bonnie's Mystery. It has been a challenge for me, alot of different fabrics and turning all the pieces the right way. Well, I didn't do a good job of that as you can see in the pix below. This is what happens when I get interupted! LOL I am not going to change it, just hope that they will be equal in quantity and continue on. It should give the quilt more texture, sounds good huh?? I also found out this morning I won in a give-a-way and am so excited, I never win anything!! Quilters are the best!

Roll Roll Cotton Boll

I got a late start on Bonnie's new mystery but am moving right along with it. I must say it has been a challenge for me, especially all those 1/2 sq. triangles. I really hate making them but love how they turn out in the grand scheme of things. Hopefully I will have all the pieces and parts done this week.
Am looking forward to see how others in blogland are turning out! Happy New Year one and all!
