Spoolin' Around

It was so shocking to go to Rally Day and see the quilt that our small group put together. I knew others would be there selling raffle tickets for their guild quilts but I didn't even think about ours being there.

This is the big quilt that the picture from the earlier post belongs to. It is amazing up close!!! If you ever get a chance to see her speak, definitely go.

I have been fortunate to spend the day listening to Cynthia England speak at rally day. Her quilts are amazing and she is one funny lady and so energetic.

Kelleigh designed a quilt and wanted to make it by the Dallas Modern Quilt meeting on Thursday evening. Although, it is not pressed, we did finish.

Ready to Quilt

I finished piecing this Nancy Halvorsen design from her Be Attitudes book. It needs to be quilted and then there are lots of embellishments to add. I love her designs and can't wait to add Tidings to my collection. It has a lot of beautiful projects.

So Inviting

After several days of gloomy, cloudy weather we have the most gorgeous day today. I so want to just hang out by our pool. I may just put the sewing aside and grab a book.

Flag Flying High

I love seeing our flag flying outside on the house. It means so many different things but mainly reminds me of the freedom we have. God bless America!

First Pepper of the Season

I have heard about this pepper growing from a couple of the kids. Today they decided it needed to be picked. Well, as you can see, it was quite small. Hoping the next one is enough for at least one person to eat.

Coming in January

I just signed up for the Sharon Pederson Rose of Remembrance block of the month from Blue Ribbon Quilt Shoppe. It has been highly anticipated and is just so beautiful. They are offering it for hand applique or machine applique but I chose the hand version. I can't wait to start on it but it isn't going to be until January 2011. That gives me plenty of time to get some other things done.

Jacobean Holiday

This is a picture of the quilt I have been making. It is Jacobean Holiday by Pat Campbell. I chose to hand appliqué the blocks and this is my first appliqué quilt after taking a class from Blue Ribbon Quilt Shoppe in Wylie,Texas. I will post actual pictures of the blocks as I finish them. I have several close to being complete.
