Good evening, 

I really don’t know where the summer days have gone, they just have gone really fast. There hasn’t been a lot of time for sewing, but plenty of great time with the children and grandchildren. 

One of the finishes I have is from a book called Small pieces, Spectacular quilts. The name of the quilt is called fourplay. I changed the size and added some more blocks and the quilt finishes 108 in.² and has over 3200 pieces.

I had fun using an older pillar fabric as the border.

Another finish is my version of the splendid sampler group. It finished at 75 in.² and has 49 blocks. The splendid sampler group will continue until next February, there will be 100 blocks total but I chose to finish mine early. 

I am still working on my sweet surrender quilt, working on it with a group of ladies from Shipshewana, approximately 20 of us. We are a little over halfway finished.

So it is time to start something new, I chose the small world quilt except mine will not be small. The original is 33 x 52 and mine will end up being 104 in.² by enlarging the block size,  adding new elements and repeating the original blocks. It is going to be a really fun project especially because I will be using these brightly colored new fabrics 

I hope you’re finding a way to stay cool for those of you that are experienced this hot and humid summer. Hope you enjoyed the posts, more soon.
Happy quilting,

I went to the AQS show with my daughter, she is intoquilting  as much as I am. We had a blast at the vendors, if you notice in the picture there are two of many of the items because we bought projects to work on together. I think it is the first time I went to a show and didn’t buy Civil War fabrics. Everything I bought was out of the box for me, lots of bright and beautiful fabrics that I can’t wait to use.

Good evening,
 It is so awesome to have an AQS show in your own hometown, I enjoy it every year. To be able to see the beautiful quilts and all the wonderful things that the vendors bring, truly wonderful. Here are some of the winners. This weekend I will update my progress and what i purchased at the show.

I hope you’re finding plenty of ways to stay cool,
Happy quilting,

Dear friends,

Thought I would share these pictures with you, Always makes my day to see my children or grandchildren enjoy their quilts..

I also think it is so important for us to pass on what we love to our grandchildren. 

Tumbler Quilt

Dear friends,
I can’t believe that June is almost here. I want to wish you and your families a wonderful memorial day weekend, I hope you find some time to celebrate as well as relax and maybe work on a special project. 

I am working on so many projects right now, I have finished what will be my next pattern and I will send pictures when I get it back from the machine quilter. 

Sending  pictures of some of the things I am working on, my tumblers are now at 8250, Mary Elizabeth Kinch’s Fourplay pattern, Sweet surrender, Temecula circa 2016, splendid sampler, and Panama Pyramids. 

Enjoy your weekend, going to be beautiful weather here.

Happy stitching,
