Week 5 I'm halfway through 10 more blocks to go! The top block is called Red Cross. I know I made them yellow but I have to spread the colors so thats what I came up with. The bottom block is the Rolling Squares block. I laid all the blocks out so far and I think this is going to be one gorgeous quilt when I get done. The colors are so vivid against the white background. This is going to be a special gift for a special girl in my life, I hope she likes it.
Week 4 : Moving right along. The top block is the Riviera block. I have had the floral fabric I used in the middle and the border for so long and every time I went through my stash I thought to myself, why do I have this fabric? I think I have always liked it because of its bold colorful busy- ness. I could never find anything to go with it so I have had it for a long long time. I found the perfect fit with this block and am delighted with the outcome.
The bottom block is the Dakota Star. This one is made with a vintage fabric. I love this block and wouldn't mind making a whole quilt of this one.
This is a basket and mug rug I made for my quickie valentine swap partner. It's been sent but I had to mail it out of the country. I sure hope it makes it there by valentines day! Hope you like it partner, it was a lot of fun to make it for you.
I am a mother of 5 great kids and three cute cats. I have the most wonderful husband who is my biggest fan and bestest friend. I try to live a simple life and surround myself with positive supporting friends and family.I have always been artsy and love to create things. I also enjoy crossword puzzles and reading. I love all animals which is apparent in the designs I do for my bags, but my favorites are turtles, elephants and owls. My kids inspire me daily even though they are mostly grown, I still feel like I learn so much from them, they are what I was put on this earth to do and having them and raising them was the most important job I ever had and I love every minute of it.
