Finishes!

Hi to all. I want to thank all who come and leave comments on my blog. When I first started blogging, I thought I would do it more as a to do list, but now I get up every morning and check my blog list to see if anyone has written anything new. I enjoy reading about your families, your stitching, quilting, funny things you've done, etc, etc. It is the highlight of my day.
I'm also inspired to get more projects done! I should quit playing around on the computer and keep working on those projects, but it's just so fun to see what everyone else is doing!

Here are some finishes I have this week. My goals this month are seriously in trouble, but I've worked on many things that weren't part of my goals list, so therein lies the problem!
Bent Creek's "Hunt" framed and on my kitchen table at the moment.

Valentine Heart's by Blackbird Designs. I wasn't sure I liked the yellow flowers in this, but decided to leave them after I was finished. I love the frame, it really brings out the red's and browns in this piece.
This is a quilt I've had at the quilters since November. My son forgot to tell me, (he says he told me, but I was on the phone so I didn't hear him.) Uh huh. Anyway it's been done since January, and Sue called to find out what happened to me. Needless to say I just got it picked it up.

This was a block exchange I did in my quilt guild about 4 years ago. The colors were suppose to be, brown, lime green, and "doggy dinky pink". There were 24 more blocks to this quilt, but I wanted to change the original pattern and do this one instead. As it turns out, a good friend that did the exchange with us, needed several more blocks to make her quilt to fit her king size bed, so I gave her the rest of mine. I can't wait to see what she does with them!

This was quilted by Sue Hill in South Ogden. She is so creative. I love how she quilted a tulip in each block around the border. Must have taken her forever! I would never have thought of that.

Sue's quilting is amazing. This is one of the blocks that I did for the exchange.

This is "cow" minky (super soft, wanna touch and feel it) fabric that I've tried to hide from my daughter for 5 months. I planned to put it on the back of a quilt, but she kept climbing up on the dresser in the closet to get it down. She loves how soft the fabric is, and kept dragging it around the house. (It was originally a 3 yard cut, so it was huge!) When she took it to Grandma's while I went to Portland, I decided it was high time I get a blanket made for her. For someone who quilts, it's pretty bad when your daughter is carrying around fabric for 5 months. I finally got some brown minky, and just did a simple specialty stitch around the edge. I have plenty of cow fabric left, so I'm going to make her a matching pillow case. She loves it!

I've also finished dd's Easter skirt, but I need to do a little tweaking on it before I can take a picture. I'm off to do that now!

Have a great day!
