What I've Been Up To..

I'm guessing you all are wondering what I've been up to?

My village quilt is finished!  I will be sending it off to my longarmer very soon.  For those of you who know I have issues with 'random', you will be happy to hear (read) that the placement of the 132 little houses was completely random.  I threw all of them into a box, drew them out one by one and sewed them together in rows...and I think I switched out only once!  I love it!

This next quilt top was made in a week.  I had been inspired by the pattern of a backsplash shown on the Nate and Jeremiah show.  Just a simple layout, but it motivated me to use more of my scraps to make a nice lap quilt.  I will more than likely quilt this one, myself.

I also finished this scrappy crossroads quilt!

Whenever I get the urge to do some mindless sewing, cloth napkins appear...

And, I have been working on a quilt for sister Julie...putting together a bazillion components to begin with.  I will soon have something to show.

Lots going on, lots to write, but not now.  Soon.

Have a good week!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

Ahhhh! Beautiful color! :-) Love the village quilt! I'll be using your backsplash quilt as inspiration for another scrap quilt here...very clever! And of course, the cross roads quilt is amazing! I'm thinking that you've drawn me over to the "bright side" of fabrics! lol! Happy Spring! Good to hear from you!

You have made some really beautiful quilts. I really want to do more quilting, need to get my room organized so I can work on some new pieces.
