The Kitty Quilt

I looked at this and thought,
I need to spend some time cleaning this space up!

But the kitty quilt is being quilted.
I couldn't think of a way to quilt it,
so I visited my neighbor.
She just looked at it and told me what to do.

It is working out.

I need to weed and I love the irises,
but the grass comes up with them.
I spent some time with them this morning.

Flowers and Quilting.
What a life!

Getting There

I got the kitty faces put together.

It may not seem like much to you,
but me and kitty face blocks have struggled.

I am thinking about how to quilt it.
I know that I am going to machine quilt it.
I'm just not sure how.

I need to make a quilt list for the summer.

The sad news (for the list) is that I have a couple of big trips planned.

The happy news, is that I should be able to see some new quilt shops
and visit with some amazing new quilting friends.

It just seems to happen every time I take a road trip.

I have been struggling to find some time to sew.

Can not lie, when the weather is so pretty,
I don't always want to go to my sewing room and work.

I have decided to go through my fabric and get rid of the fabric
 that does not make me happy anymore.

True story.
I found it hard to work on those scrap quilts.
So, I have that little project to look forward to.

I have been working on this little kitty quilt.
I am getting close to being able to put it together.
I have 2 more kitty faces to build.

I must say, that this pattern has crazy directions
 but I have it figured out now.

What can I say?  
Not everyone is Lori Holt.

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

I finally finished my contribution to Sleep in Heavenly Peace.

I plan on making another set.

But I think it will happen when school is out.

I have also been crossing.

Oh, how the crossing becomes an addiction habit.

We went on a Spring Break trip to Washington DC.

One of our first visits was to the Air and Space Museum in Virginia.

-for the record... totally worth the drive-

They have a Space Shuttle in there and all I could think was 
that it looked like a patch work quilt.

This is under the wings.

Look how the tiles(?) fit together.

I was fascinating.

And this tree and sky combo...
What a beautiful quilt these colors would make.

Just keep Sewing

I needed a quick baby gift.

I have to admit that I love these little bibs.

They go together so fast and they are so darn cute.

I just had to make one for my soon-to-be new grand daughter.

I finished this quilt and gave it away.

This was a hard quilt to give away.

I don't really like it.

It is hand quilted.
And for the record, I swore off hand quilting for a while.

But the embordery in the center of the squares was done by the grandmother
of one of my daughters friends.

I gave it to her.

She sent me the kindest thank you note.

It touched my heart that she understood how special it was.

I have wished for a snow day this week.

Despite some snow,
there was no snow day.

However, I am planning a sew day tomorrow.
And bonus,
we will have some snow on the ground.

There is just something about sewing on a day when it is just too cold and snowy to hang out outside.
