Holly, sorry to hear that your knees are giving you trouble. Just put your feet up and relax today. Bozie, your mini is great. I love the colors. Teddy, it is nice to have a project to try free motion quilting and you know what they say, practice makes perfect. LOL. Patty j and I finished a king size double Irish chain top and will send it to our quilter next week. Sue

Bozie Great mimi as usual. TeddyLady Like your Sudoko quilt I too find that they are fun to make. Sister Sue and Patty J Like your Irish chain in blue.
I have finished this for my GS just in time for his birthday. We kept telling him that the quilt was pink and yellow with fairies and pickies casels and maybe even a toll or so plus lots of sparkesls. I think that he will like this better.

Handie Ann - love that quilt! The colors are great. All the other projects are very nice too - enjoy seeing all the projects. I am still doing some EPP and some appliqué. Working a lot right now so not much time to do much sewing with the machine. My son starts school soon and then maybe I can sew. Senior year - I can't believe it!
Posted pics are great..Bozie I love your mini, so cheerful, and Teddy, thanks for your picture, I've heard talk about the sudoku quilt but wasn't getting the idea, now I do I can see some of my stash used up with a couple, thanks.
Keepyouinstitches, I was thinking of that. My daughter even suggested that when sewing. Which tickled me. She never seemed interested in crafts when she got older but now she does do stuff. (off pinterest) she has several blocks cut for a couple different quilts she would like to do.
How far are you from Campwood, TX? My nephew lives there and my son is there at this time.

LanaR, that was my thought too. A gentle wide ruffle, maybe 1 1/2 but no more that 2 to 1 and wide so it drapes down the side a few inches all around. Match the chairs if you can. Also possibly add a cording between each. Good luck... ChrisThis message has been edited. Last edited by: cksvett,

Lana, I had to look up Campwood. I'm across the state! Probably 7-8 hours. Texas is BIG!
Here's Cain's, youngest DG, ABC quilt top - he will get it Christmas. I'm working on his BBs (big brother), Colt, quilt now. Where Cain's green is, Colt's will be blue. The backing on both quilts is a coordinating polka dot - multi-colors. Binding will be the stripe on bias.
I haven't purchased DGDs fabric yet. I've got to go look at her curtains.This message has been edited. Last edited by: KeepYouInStitches,
Love the way you did your ABC quilt. It gives the focus to the fabrics. I have one pinned, ready to quilt but chose a very busy background fabric and it's way too messy. Confusing to an adult and children would be cross eyed. Yours is perfect and well worth copying! LOL
Penny, I like your wh. Are you using a pattern? Or is this something you are making up as you go? Either way it is creative and very pretty. This is my favorite thread too. So many different projects make for great inspirations. Thanks to all for sharing. I must comment on Bozies' minis, They are always beautiful and perfect looking. This one is nice and colorful makes me smile. Pat

I'm making the patterns. The first was for summer and I wanted to spot light the sun. This uses a very similar tree only bigger because I wanted to spotlight the color and the leaves. I'll start on my winter wallhanging, soon. I haven't made the pattern but I think I will try to take a similar tree, except it will be leafless and bent over from a winter wind - and I think I'll have a night sky for a background.
The projects are all so very nice this week. The double Irish chain is done so nicely--a great classic look. I look forward to seeing it again after it is quilted. I especially like seeing the tree wall hanging, sampler quilt, and twister too.
The suduko quilt reminds me of my dad. He loves the game. Even though it is a simple pattern, it is an effective one! I like how "the game solution" spreads out the colors for you! Very nice job, great fabric choices and quilting too! I just might have to make one too!

This is the latest cross stitch I have been working on.... Finally finished today, Special thanks to my mom for giving me the homespun material to finish it off, really gave the piece more of a country feel....
