For my DD

My daughter, Katie, turns nine next Friday and she is very much into pink and so I made this for her for her wall. She will be so delighted.  It is a schnibbles pattern my Dear mother gave me and it turned out beautiful.

Busy times

It has been about a month since I have blogged and I apologize. It has been so hectic. We have been working like crazy on our house...we built a 10 by 22 roof for a patio. Then we put down pavers for patio...I did lol. We are getting our house painted end of this week. Then Saturday is our towns Mayer Daze. There is a parade and vendors and a fun time and afterwards I always host a BBQ at our house. My son, 10, is going thru the process of dealing with a hernia. Kinda young I know but he will need surgery and we are going thru the steps for that. School is three weeks til done! So needless to say there are things going on daily and nightly. Just wanted to say hello to all and say I have missed sewing and will be doing it soon.

Finished gift....

This is a beautiful wall quilt I finally finished today for our friends who were in the navy...notice the fabric. All the fabrics used are military fabrics but the borders and binding are done in Navy fabric. I incorporated three different photos printed on fabric to quilt. Let me know your thoughts. I love the finished product. Will make a great gift for our friends.

Christmas though out the year project

Here is my project for march. We have special friends that I made this for. It is a family photo of them and I used the crazy quilt technique to finish. I used the special photo paper you can quilt and it turned out beautiful. The father is former navy...hence my color choices and fabrics.
