Bday quilt

Theresa and I:

Finished a quilt for a nurse's big year birthday! She 's a very feminine lady and the focus fabric had girlie stuff open it ( diamond rings, nail polish, little black dress, martini, shoes, purses) which we thought suited her to a tee! Sorry the pictures are so blurry, I could get her to stop moving, and she was trying not to cry!

 

This is the back-hearts and a label with our picture!

 

 

She loved it!

Now I am working on a quilt for my brother, Jeff's house! Found some "manly" fabric that matches his new brown couches! Doing a " Double Slice" quilt pattern from MSQC! One of my "go to" patterns-let's you show off the material!

Melyssa Turns 26

Happy birthday to my eldest, she turned 26 today!

 

All she asked for her birthday was for her husband to bake her a bday cake and decorate it BY HIMSELF.

Whoo Will Get This Quilt?

I bought a pattern today from Annie's----called "Fat Quarter Slide"-downloadable-so as soon as I could, I got out some FQs from my "stash" and started to cut! It honestly took me less than an hour to cut out all the pieces! So tomorrow I will sew it together! I'm trying out this pattern to see if it will be my "go to" pattern for this year! My other go to patterns are Enigma and Warm Wishes, but I have grown tired of them. So a new pattern is just what I needed to spark my "JoJo mojo".

 

It finishes 71 1/2 x 86 1/2, so that's a generous size!

Purple Scraps

I love paper piecing! I started this purple pineapple quilt a couple of years ago! It's just something I work on for no reason now and again!

45 pieces per 8 inch block.....fun!

 

 

Happy 24th Birthday...to my baby

I am so proud of the woman you are becoming! SO independent! I am so thankful that you are inherently, kind, loving and beautiful! Not to mention, I LOVE your sense of humor and playfulness! You truly light up my life! I cannot imagine my world without you I it!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY...HAVE A GREAT, SAFE, FUN DAY!

 
 

I love you, deerly!
