Quilt Market and Hydrangeas!

I just want to say that I love Quilt Market Week.
I want to go some day.
I honestly have no idea what I would do there,
but I love looking at the post that I see from Quilt Market.

What a beautiful habit quilting is.

I made 9 of these and feel in love with them.
I want to put this quilt together tomorrow, 
but I have an errand that may take longer than I want.

It's all good,
I'm almost home for the summer.

Speaking of summer,
look what is coming back?

It is my hydrangea.
When I saw it yesterday,
It made my heart happy.

You just wait and see,
it will be worth it.  

Hope you all have a good week.

Derby Day

Yesterday was Derby Day.
I had planned to sew until 4 and then take some time to pick a winner.

I finally got the pieces of this block ready and I had to put them together.

The next set of blocks are yellow.

I like this project.
Not going to lie,
I'm not sure how it is going to end.

I am crazy about the Kentucky Derby.
I always say it is because it is a 2 minute sporting event.
Each horse has a story.
And each jockey has a story also.

But the colors,
That may be what wins me over.  

Even in the mud, it is a beautiful sight.

Baby Steps

This is a really busy time of year for me.

I thought I would give the instructions one more try.
It worked.

So I am ready for the next step.

New Project

I had an idea.
I am using a pattern.
I am just struggling with the big picture.

I put a boarder on this one.
I like it more everyday.

I'm in love with this tulip pattern.
I feel like I have found my summer scrap project.

I have a niece who is involved with a program that helps
refugees settle in her area.
I found myself very drawn to help also.
I decided to make some scrap quilts for our refugee center, here in the Magic Valley.

The first thing I did was start cutting.
This made the task a bit more challenging.

I finished all the quilt tops, 
and then slowly,
started to quilt them.

 I am happy to say, that after a year,
I have finished all four of them. 

I look forward to delivering them.

I think I will do some more, 
but I will plan first and then cut.

Full Bloom

I have been here and there, but not here.

I made a few of these before I went out of town,
and estimated that I would finish this quilt top in late April.

I have no idea how it happened, 
but I had a few hours one day and I put it together.

Love it.
I want to put a border on it.
I promised myself that I would not keep it.
I sure don't need it.
I have thought of half a dozen people to give this to.
Good thing I have some time to decided who will get it.

I finished it!

 I finished it!
I'm pretty happy about that.

We had a little bit of snow, so I took it out.
There is something about the light in the snow.  

Everyone who sees this quilt, comments on the back.
This is a cute back from Connecting Threads.
I love the binding.

I am going to keep it for a fair entry.

I also started the squares for my new quilt.

I like this block.
It is going to be a while until I get them done.
