Xmas Dotee Dolls

So I really had fun making these dolls! Great for doing in front of the TV, and another great idea for using up those scraps!

Be Thankful Postcards

I am now working on some fabric postcards with the theme 'Be Thankful". I have never made postcards before, and they are kind of fun!

Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Fall 2010

I am participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival. I have chosen my "Hope" quilt to use in the festival.
When I made this, I had just found ou that both of my adult children had Bi-Polar Syndrome. I made this to let all of us know that there is always hope in everything.
I had just taken a Carol Taylor class and learned how to make her couched spirals, against a fused and couched rectangle background. It was time consuming and fun. I went a little beyond her signature sirals and added some swirls and curves of my own.

Nail Caddies

I I belong to theFiberArtTraders Group and we are doing a trade on Nail Caddies. You could make them anyway you wanted to. These are pictures of mine. I made bifolds, and Istill need to get to the Dollar store to buy the goodies for inside.

I just finished a small wall quiltlet for my father-in-law's recent marriage. Their bedroom is all white; NO color! So the quiltlet is also all white. It is a little hard to see because of the lack of color, but you will get the idea. Now I am starting on a challenge for Keepsake Quilting, and a quilt project for Gyleen Fitzgerald of Canal Tiles for her upcoming book. Busy, busy, busy! And learning new things! For Gyleen's project I needed to buy 2 new rulers, and I am going to try them out in a minute. Keepsake is a beach scene, and I haven't decided on a technique yet. I'll keep you posted!

Long time, no see!

I have been neglecting my blog, and have renewed my vow to blog everyday! Today I started Kay Sorenson's Tessellations tutorial. Looks like great fun. I am excited! Tonight I will finish my Father-in-law's wedding wall quilt. I will post a picture when I finish.

Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

Finally started my challenge quilt today. It is due on Monday evening, so I have to work fast. It has to have a black background and 10 diamonds (shapes, rings, baseball diamonds, whatever). For me it became a Marilyn Monroe theme. I have done all of my applique, so now I am going to make the quilt sandwich and start the stitching. The fun part! Hope I finish it in time!

More Snow!!

I can't belive we are getting more snow! Thank goodness my husband and son do all of the shoveling. But I am feeling bad for the deer and the birds. Will they die of starvation? I had seen a small piebald deer in my backyard two weeks ago, and I was looking forward to seeing him grow up. I hope he makes it throught this snow! I had never seen a piebald deer before, and at first I thought a baby cow was in my yard! Her picture is above.

I am still working on my Bloomin challenge quiltlet. I am working on the fairy now. Above is my 'before' pix; I will post another when I finish her.

Super Bowl and Bloomin Challenge

I am watching the Super Bowl and taking breaks to work on my Blomin Challenge for my guild, Friendship Stars in Gaithersburg, Md. I must admit I do not care for the fabric we are working with, so it is making it hard too be creative. Oh, well, it will be a learning experience. Here is what I have done so far. It still needs a lot of work.

Valentines Day

Here are 2 little quiltlets for Valentine's Day. I like the pink one best. The green one is being sent to my swap mate from Pat Sloans Sweetheart rock swap.,55.0.html

Snow, Snow and more Snow!!!

Charity Quilts

Today I will be researching charity quilt organizations. I am trying to decide whether to join and existing charity or start my own. since my trip to Tanzania in 2008, I would really like to make quilts for the people I met there. I will search the web today, and then decide.

I am working on my Mystery Quilt from my class next week. It is made from Blank Fabrics, so I am also going to use it to enter my guilds Blank Challenge. Hope it turns out good!

Memory Quilts

Here are some pix of our class:

We had a great class on Sunday with Donna Sinrud. She taught us all about memory quilts, t shirt quilts and necktie quilts.

We had a lot of fun and learned a lot.
