Quilt Show

My youngest son was getting ready to go to college
and wanted an apron.
I couldn't help but put a kitty on it.

When I dropped him off at school, 
I stopped and looked at quilts at the Springville Museum.
They have a beautiful show.

I love this show, because there are hand quilted quilts there.

 I am very interested in Hawaiian quilts.

This dog was so cute.

I went with my daughter,
who is checking out the hand quilting on this beauty,

and my daughter in law, who figured out this pattern.

Need I say it?
I love this color.

Another hand quilted wonder.

Everything about this quilt made it 3-D.
The quilting was amazing
and these flowers were adorable.

Until next year.

Too Cute

I decided last week that I would make a little quilt for my grandson.
I started with this and I was energized by the cuteness of this truck.

So I made some more...... 
I mean, even the roads are cute.

 I couldn't help myself, so I finished.

I have a back for it, but I haven't decided whether to hand quilt or machine quilt.

Carried Away

I may have gotten carried away,
but the little quilt grew

and multiplied.

I thought they would look cute on bunk beds.
There is a reason they call them "Quick Quilts:

What I do with a Panel

I bought two panels this summer.

I cut the dogs up and made these table runners.
--yes, I picked out two of them and turned them around--

Then I cut up another panel.
I found this quilt in a magazine and had a vision.

Here is is, and it is a work in progress.

Not only that, but I am going to make another one.

Busy Weekend and Week

I spent the weekend with my family.
We had a day trip to the beach.
I love these flowers, but I also love this red door.

Then I came home and cleaned up a few projects.
I made these for the grand kids, 
but I'm thinking I need to turn around one set of dogs.

I was designing as I sewed and I hate to pick out,
but I think I will.

I also put this together.
It is bright and fun.
I have enough fabrics for one more, but not sure what I will do with them.

Minky Backs

 When I made this quilt,  I envisioned a bright pink minky back. I found the minky  (on Amazon and it is a nice minky) and t...
