Hello there! So glad you could stop by!
I have two projects that I want to share but I have to wait. I hate waiting. One will be revealed on Monday. The Shadow Block Mini Reveal!
The second one is the Cloud9 Block Design project and there are a TON of ladies on this one. We will each be designing one unique 12 inch block using this fabric. Each quilter is going to post the block she designed along with a tutorial on how to make the block. We will all be sending our blocks in to be sewed together into quilts for charity. There are prizes to be had! So be sure to visit this blog hop, I'll be posting a list of all the participants on September 12. Judging by the number of participants, I think we'll have enough to make several quilts!
In the meantime, I have to come up with something else to blog about so I'm kind of all over the board from here on out.
My mom (who just turned 80) is the one who first taught me how to sew. Hi mom!!
She never was a quilter but I remember all kinds of clothes and crafty things she made. She hasn't sewed in years and had even sold her machine when she and dad moved into a retirement home but then someone gave her a sewing machine and then someone else gave her a bunch of scraps. She started cutting squares and sewing them together to make a quilt to give to Love, Inc. Love, Inc. is a non-denominational organization that has been successful in organizing churches of all different beliefs to help those in need. Love them!! Here is what she made!
So I took her shopping to buy some batting and help pick out the backing. We found this yummy calico with yellow background and blue and pink flowers with green leaves. All the colors in her quilt! So now, I have a new project to practice my FMQ (free motion quilting)!
Remember this picture?
Now it looks like this! It's kind of a barn woody looking engineered flooring. Supposedly harder than wood. We shall see! This is the living room and kitchen.
While we're on the subject of moms, I am one, ya know. And here is one of the humans who made me a mom. Her name is Ashley. Here we are trying to keep straight faces.
Mom, you're so weird!
Ah, but she loves me anyway.
