Can you guess the pattern?

This is a quilt I have wanted to do for a long time but just never got around to it. I decided since I have the time now I would get it cut out and get started. If you can quess the pattern it will be worth a couple of FQ's for you, interested?? I will give you a hint to put you on the right path. This pattern was designed by Evelyn Sloppy.

My Blue Heaven

I finished piecing "My Blue Heaven" today after lunch and I absolutely love it! I tried hanging it outside on the fence to get a pix but it was too windy and wouldn't stay on it. Had to settle on hanging it on my quilt frame. Once I got the hang of the pattern it went pretty fast so I think I will make one in reds and pinks next. It would make a cute Valentine Quilt don't you think??!!

New Baby Quilt

My sister-in-law called a couple of weeks ago and asked if I could make a baby quilt for her for a friend that was having a little girl. Well, of course I said yes and here it is in all its pink flowery glory! I still have to put the binding on but I just had to post it while I was thinking of it and before I got too engrossed in the NCAA basketball games!
This quilt is approximately 50X50 so it should be useful for many years. I sure hope it matches the little ones nursery! Happy Springy Saturday!!

New Project

I have started another project, like I needed another one, but I have wanted to make my own "Blue Ridge Beauty". I cut up a bunch of fabrics and have more than half of this super quilt done. It has been a challenge for me, my table just isn't big enough to hold it all, and so I have done some ripping and fixing my "OOPS"! I do love how it is turning out though and know it will be a real treasure when it is done. I think I will make one in pinks too, I know one of my grandaughters would like it as an heirloom someday. Pink scraps I have tons of!!

Hope everyone has a quilty weekend! I will be sewing and watching the NCAA tournament, my favorite time of the year!!!!!

New Color for Studio

It is finally done! It seemed to take forever but the painting in the studio is done and I love it! It is a tad brighter in person but it is warm and inviting and that is what we were going for. I also did alot of sorting and prioritizing and vowed not to put anything else in this room! Now I feel so happy to be out here and instead of figuring "what if we did this" I am saying what quilting will I get done today!

Life Is Good!

A Forgotten Quilt

Have you ever forgotten about a quilt you had made? I sure did! Hubby and I have been painting the quilting studio, glad that job is done, and as we were sorting things to put back after we were done I happened to find this table top sized quilt I had forgotten all about. It is called "Prairie Moon Throw" and I made it in 2004. I absolutely love the colors and it looks great on the table in the entry way.
Now that we are done and everything is back where it belongs it is such a joy to come out here to quilt! Have a great weekend!!
