It's the end of the month and time for show and tell. I finished all of my "A Tisket A Tasket" blocks and got them all sewn together.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. :) I think that hand quilting is the way to go with this one and LUCKY ME, I took it to the Senior Citizen's Center, where I do blood pressure clinic once a month and the sweet ladies there volunteered to quilt it for me. How could I resist? I can't wait to see it when it gets done.
For my Let's Book It.... this month I chose a pattern from this Fon's and Porter Love of Quilting Magazine from 2012
I love to decorate with watermelons in August and September.
There was no corel or striped fabric in my stash but there was plenty of watermelon fabric so this is how mine turned out.
I won an awesome giveaway from Deonn Stott from Quiltscapes
The NewFO challenge contribution this month is a whole bunch of pillow cases to be made for a pillow case challenge There are 5 shown are to be sewn up and sent off to the Utah Quilt Guild later this month.
I joined a Quilt Guild! How fun it is!!! We had a little retreat last weekend and had a demonstration on how to make this...
On the flip side it looks like this....
Now I'm ready for Spring and Summer and can't wait to make a few more.
It will be a while before I remember everyone's name but I did get a few photo's which got me nominated for historian but I'm pretending that didn't happen. I snapped a few photo's before my phone went dead.
Adding applique to already made pillow cases, great idea!
Nothing keeps a quilter down, not even foot surgery.
More pillow cases.
Looks like she's starting on the Quilt around, her center will be adorable.
pillowcases, great idea!
And we made these darling little pin cushions
We ate and talked and laughed and there were prizes Oh my
goodness what have I been missing?
My husband and I decided to add a playground to the backyard and the 3 grand kids that are living with us right now think Grandpa is amazing. He did do a pretty great job! Nice view huh?
That's it for now, I better blog more often if the month is going to be as busy as the last one was. Thanks for stopping in for a visit.
