Quilt Finish And A Birthday!

Finally got this quilt finished! I have been trying to get my oldest quilts quilted and bound and am getting there slowly. This was not the oldest one but it has some age on it. Will get another oldie loaded in my machine later today I hope. Have a few days of free time so I had better take advantage of it. :D
This handsome guy below is my oldest grandson who turned 20 last week! Talk about feeling old, LOL!! He is a sophmore at Butler University in Indianapolis and is studying to be a teacher. I am so proud of him and I know his mother, who is looking down from heaven, is just as proud!

A Fun Finish!

I finally got this wonderful quilt done! It was
the last pattern of Bonnie Hunter's that I have done and what alot of pieces I used. Great way to get rid of alot of scraps and have the quilt look good too!

This is how it looks hanging up in my quilting studio and I still couldn't get the who thing in one pix. If it wasn't raining I would take it outside but would have to hang it over the fence. Oh well, no matter how I look at it I still love it!
Hope everyone is having a quilty day!!

It Has Been A Long Time!

It has been forever since I have been in blogland. Alot of changes in my life have been happening and things have calmed down and are back to normal, whatever that may be. I have been doing alot of piecing but little quilting and so I thought I would start quilting again with this wonderful table runner. My dear friend Angela pieced this for me in exchange of my quilting one of her quilts. She does such a wonderful job piecing and that makes this runner even more special! I have had this Thimbleberries kit in my house for I don't know how many years and am so happy that it is finished. It will be on display in my kitchen through the Thanksgiving holiday and I will love having it there to enjoy!
A little bit of what has been happening is that last November I had quit my job and spent many months at home quilting and enjoying my life. Alas the hubby wasn't too happy about it so I have been hired on at Wal-Mart an hour away. The fun part about my new job is that I work in the fabric department! I have had alot of fun there, talking to quilters and also to the college kids that come and buy fabric to make Halloween costumes and such!! I am amazed at how many of them are ambitious enough to do it! I can honestly say that it is never boring! That's about it. Now to go and check out what everyone else has been doing!!!
