The lastest

Remember my "I Spotted a Frog" quilt?  It was selected for the Kings Art Center's postcard for our quilt exhibit.  Barbara emailed me  a picture of the postcard but I haven't seen one in person yet.  I think the show starts this week.  I wonder if I'll get to see it.
I have been working on my fans for the vintage moments class.  Here are the 48 fans finished.  Finally, I thought it would never end.  Now all the parts are done, including the middle, and I can start putting it together.  I'm working on a birthday quilt for Janice right now so when that is done I can get to it.

I made these place mats to add some color to this boring apartment.  Here are the six I made for us and I have four more for someone else.  Can't say in case she reads this far down the blog.

Here I am holding the baby quilt from the Hanford church for Tami's new baby Anna.  Genelle and Peggy came down to help me put it together.  We whipped it out in one day.  I wish I would have had more time to do some quilting on it besides stitch in the ditch but it had to be done.  The shower is this Saturday.  I hope she likes it.  I found the fabric at Bolts in the Bathtub in Lancaster, Ca.  It is a great shop and no, Jeremy, it's still not better than Thimble Town!  Thimble Town is still the best quilt store for my money!

  It is suppose to rain tomorrow so I hope to get a lot of quilting done.  I love the rain and am always more productive when it rains.  Spent today running around town after getting a flu shot and having lunch with Jeff at the Saugus Cafe.  Great food, been there since forever, diner where the movie stars have gone in the past.  Don't know why the movie stars go there.  It is kind of a hole in the wall from the outside.  Come to visit and I'll take you there!

Off to see "Money Ball" with Brad Pitt. My son-in-law Stephen's brother, Bryan, is in the movie as one of the Pitchers. It's suppose to be a great movie.


  1. Great post, love all of the quilts. And congrats on the postcard!

  2. Hope you enjoyed the movie. Very cute baby quilt. Hope you get a lot of quilting done tomorrow - Jeff made stew tonight in honor of the 1st rain to come!
