Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
This is the fabric I picked to go on this block. Not sure I like it! It may be just to light.
I am working on this block on the right!
This is the fabric, pardon my shadow.  It's very light checks !
It doesn't seem to show up at all!
I may finish it up and wait to see how it looks in the whole quilt.
Hopefully it will make it look old and faded because the picture she gave me  of the quilt looks that way.
Have a good one

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
I made two different sizes for this block. Then looked at it for a couple of days
 to see what I liked best.
Went with the bigger ones.
This is the second , not quite finished but  lighter colors should make it looked more like what she wanted.
Three of these across should make a nice sized queen.
Dawn sent me this beautiful table topper and two Mug Rugs , one for me and one for Tommy.
Wasn't that sweet?
Just love that sweet little topper!

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
Got my first 6 done. But the pattern calls for another ring of tri-angles around this and I am looking for the best fabric for it.
The picture of the quilt she wants  is light shades of colors but all I have are bright's.
My 7th one!
I have been cutting them out two at a time and putting them together.
This makes eight so I guess I had better add the next round to see how big the finished one is so I can plan how many I need.
Have a great weekend

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
I finished the yellow block and added this one.
This is a close up of the fabric I used.
Four Down , have no idea how many I need to make. When you make from a picture you don't get instruction's.

Block Five!
I enjoy making these blocks!
Using up fat quarters of different colors.

Father's Day

Hi friends!
 This is  Sable . She is our youngest g-g.
Missy had a pictures of her great grand paw holding her.
I was doing some thing and missed it.
We had a great dinner .
Then sit out on the porch for a couple of hours and just talked and eat ice cream.
He was happy that all his girls could make it .
Needless to say I didn't get much sewing done this weekend.

Kim's and Richard's Quilt.

Hi friends!
He was helping cook breakfast yesterday morning.
He spent the whole day with us , was good as gold and loves all kinds of foods.
Got these to go in Kim and Richard's quilt.
I didn't sew yesterday but did a little the day before .
I finished this block and started another.
It's shades of yellow so doesn't stand out.
Maybe I will get it finished today.
But this is cleaning day!
Have a great week end

Hi Friends!
This is just part of my blocks that I have made but not used.
I should put these together and make a quilt out of them. Doesn't look to promising does it?
I started Kim's quilt!  This may be to big for a repeat pattern. I will just have to see how it finish's. Their is more to this block!
My Rose of Sharon's are blooming.
I lost the one I rooted that came from my house 17 years ago. It died year before last.
But Sis gave me these.
One is the same and the other a lighter shade.
The tiger lily's are blooming all over, I moved these out of the ditch years ago so Hubby wouldn't  mow them down.
That drought last year killed my Hostia. Every bit of it and I had it down one side of the house.
Have a good one

Hi friends!
I finished my daughter's quilt.
It was a little windy!
It's so big that it's hard to get a good picture.

Looks a lot different in side.
Have a good weekend

Hi friends!
I just need to go from one corner down to the other corner and then  I can take pictures!
Her Birthday is tomorrow but I want see her on her birthday because she has to work.
This weekend I will give it to her. Maybe I can finish binding this evening.
Hoping her brother can come up Sunday to eat for  her and his  birthday dinner with us. His is the first and her's is the eight of June.
His youngest is in Italy and will be back this weekend some time so he may have to pick her up at the airport Sunday. We will just have to wait and see.
His oldest is in Paris right now , I was worried about him yesterday but he said he was safe.
He was in London when that terrorist attack  happened to.
He is taking classes in three different country's this summer.  More College credits but I wish my grand's were here and safe.
I fully expect us to have that same problem soon with all the people that have been brought into this country with out deep checking!
Have a good one

Nearly finished

Hi friends!
It is now on the couch waiting for me to sew the binding down!
Her birthday is next week so I have to finish!
I've let every thing else go until I got this far. Now I will bind it every time I sit down which may be a lot because I am dragging.
That four days of running around all the time did a number on me, Tommy says it was the iron!
I was ironing the other day when my new iron shorted under my feet! My sandals has black smoke on them!
The cord had a open place and it got against a drop cord and almost took the lights out!
And me with it!
My sandals saved my life, Haha
Have a great weekend
