Just stuff...

These blocks are not going in the same quilt but I kind of like them together. The harp is part of the Jacobean Christmas I have been working on. I have several blocks close to being done but I have a gazillion circles to make and I need some instruction on how to do them. It will be my favorite quilt when I get it finished. Not only because if its beauty but because of the new friendships I formed while making it. We vowed to stay together and make another quilt next year...Roses of Remembrance by Sharon Pederson.

The other two blocks are for The Allen Quilters Guild donation quilt next year. Generally, we have a few ladies make the quilt in their small group and then we all sell raffle tickets to earn money for the guild. This past year our small group made the quilt. We gathered on a Saturday and purchased the fabric. We divided it all up and made about 10 blocks each. This is really nice to only make two blocks and we used batiks from our stash. The background fabric for the star blocks was provided by the guild.

This is the Spoolin' Around quilt that the Seams Like Sisters small group made for 2010. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

"MUMS" the word

Kelleigh made a mum out of duct tape for Taylor for homecoming. It is totally a Texas thing but the bigger the better. Generally, they are made from ribbons but Taylor is a duct tape fanatic so she was thrilled when I pulled it out of the closet.
