Stitching

Last week Rhonda and her husband were away. I knew I wasn't going to get much sewing done with caring for my 4 grandsons but I did manage to finish my Birdie blocks for January and February.





I'm using the Martinique line by Moda. I'm surprised at how much fun these blocks are and can't wait for March's block.

I must be crazy

Rhonda has been telling me about a Block of the Month that she joined. When I saw block #1, I knew I wanted to join in too.

A quick trip to Hamels and I was ready to go.



I was away for the weekend and this was the perfect project to take in the car.

Now I'm ready to start Block #2!

Oriental Beauty

My daughter in law Erica loves all things Oriental. I had all these random bits of Oriental fabrics and wondered if I could get a quilt done for her in time for Christmas.

So simple and yet so elegant.



I love the backing fabric,



I used the quilting panto Whimsey and had the binding on just in time.
