More Splendid Blocks..

I finished 2 more Splendid Sampler blocks. (These aren't the 2 I have in the works from the other day-must finish those!)

Here is Block #40, Flights of Friendship.

Here is Block #37, Dashing by Chocolate.

I should really get my Christmas sewing back out, but I can't seem to stop making these little blocks. Maybe next week I'll get it back out!

Splendid Sunday

I took a break from making Christmas gifts (my brother and his family were thinking of stopping over) and worked on The Splendid Sampler.

I ended up finishing 4 blocks with 2 more blocks almost done!!

Here is Block #24 Inspector Sidekick

Block #33 Selvage Saver . I don't have any selvages so I used strips of fabric.

Block #34 Lemonade . This one gave me the most trouble, I ripped it out at least 3 times.

Block #52 Coneflowers

It has been a long time since I've blogged. The kids are back in school and it's just me and a very ACTIVE 2 year old at home. Here's my daughter Madyson's quilt that I blogged about quite a while ago.

I did all the quilting for this one on my home sewing machine!

I made the label with my embroidery machine. (I need to get this machine out more and practice!)

I used this pattern.

The fabric is from a layer cake I won from Happy Quilting quite a while ago. I added the gray to it.

Linking up to Amanda's, Sarah's and Myra's.

What I'm working on...

I'm finally working on quilting a quilt top I've had done forever!!

I'm half way done!! I want to keep working but my arms and shoulders are SORE!

Maybe one day I will own a long arm machine and won't have to quilt this way! Linking to:Sarah and Amanda.

I picked up a book at the library the other day.

I have over 5 years worth of Family Fun magazines so I spent this morning making some envelopes.
