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.
