Spring Has Sprung...




Today is the 1st day of Spring and would have been my dear Mom's 94th birthday. I still miss her terribly, and have found the past months long and hard. I have tried to get motivated and do some quilting but it has been a struggle, though I've managed to get a few things done and will try to post some photos soon.

DH has suggested my daughter, sister and I go out for dinner tonight to celebrate Mom's birthday and her memory, so I'm looking forward to that.

 Hope to be back soon with some photos and a cheerier disposition! lol Bye for now.

I just got two of my quilts back from the quilters and finally have something to show you!

The first quilt I call "Bedtime Blankie" was beautifully quilted by Irene Brayne of Braynewave Quilting.

The second quilt I call "Butterfly Kisses" was also beautifully quilted, this time by Kathy Mundy of Oakville, Ontario.
This is the first of the quilts I made last year trying to use up my 30s reproduction fabrics. The other two are on the shelf waiting to be quilted. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I've made a dent in the pile of fabrics. lol

I have the binding made for both of these quilts so I'm hoping it won't take me too long to get them finished.
It will feel so good to have something completed.

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend.  The weather here has been wonderful for the past few days, and DH took advantage of it and got the outside Christmas lights put up.
Bye for now.

Vintage Tiles Revisited

For all of you who have been patiently waiting, the patterns for Vintage Tiles Revisited are now available to download. You can find them on Lecien's site here http://www.lecien.co.jp/en/hobby/patterns/index_Blockofmonth.html

Enjoy.

It's been difficult the past few months, the reality of Mom being gone has sunk in and I haven't had much to share with you but I hope to be back soon to show you a few projects I've been working on.

 Bye for now.

Patti S. sent me this photo of her version of Vintage Tiles Revisited, and graciously allowed me to share it with you.
She called her quilt "Black Beauty". Very fitting, don't you think?
