1930's Farmer's Wife Quilt Along

This is one LONG Quilt A long!  
If you haven't heard about it online, on flickr and/or face book...
where have you been hiding??

Angie at

is organizing and hosting this fabulous quilt along for the book by
Laurie Aaron Hird.  
I bought my copy on Amazon and got it in two days!

Then headed over to to pick out some yummy new fabric.

Then I recreated a binder to hold all the paper templates and my blocks as I get them completed.

Hello.  There are 99 blocks {6.5"}

At two blocks a week, this is going to take a year.

I'm up for the challenge.  Anyone else??

A Busy Summer

I'm really not sure where the summer has gone!  My last post in May I finished organizing my scraps and making cute little blocks to make several quilts.

Suddenly, we decided to buy our dream house on a lake......once that decision was made, the game plan changed for this summer.  We closed on the house and have spent the last few months packing and unpacking and seriously enjoying our new home.

I did get a few smaller projects completed:

I made this beach mini for Karen over on Flickr....

And I received this awesome beach mini in return!  I love the shark!

Hubby and I took the grand kid to go see JAWS when it was in the 
theater this past's his favorite DVD.

It was super awesome seeing the movie again on the big screen!

Some fussy cut socks for a swap.

August is my month for do. good stitches {charity}

I've requested this Disappearing 9 patch block.....I've received about 1/2 of them so far.

I'm thinking this will be an awesome charity quilt.

And....ta da!  Finally my Pack Patch mini is complete and hanging in my foyer!

Here's to a slower Fall and Winter and more time in my new sewing room!

Scrap busting: Pretty in Pink

I have more pink fabric than any other!
I just can't resist a beautiful pink piece of fabric!!

I really have enjoyed organizing & using up my scraps!

I do have a ton more, but at least I have them in some sort of order.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of these fabulous blocks
but for now they have to be put on hold.

My #1 niece is getting married in August, so I'll need to create something
special for her and her new hubby
and I have a charity quilt to finish off!

Scrap busting: Aqua ~ Marine

My stash & scraps are finally beginning to look like they are under control!

I found a lot of aqua scraps...this colors just looks good with just about any other color in the rainbow!

I've got both dark and light blues cut and ready to sew, however the sewing
machine is not being very cooperative today!!

I'll have to tear it apart to see what's up with it!

Enjoy your week~

Stash Busting - Springy Green

I'm sincerely hoping that spring has finally arrived here in Michigan!!

This week I worked on busting out my green between bouts of playing outside with my grandson.

These wonky stars are so much fun to make!!

Now onto my purple stash....
Wishing you a warm and wonderful spring~
