Lucky Me!!

A younger friend of mine just passed away recently but she knew several months before she left that her time was short.  So, with all the energy she could muster, she worked on quilt tops for her friends so that some of us could finish them after she had gone and get them to the blessed recipients.

I was asked to do the binding on this huge king-sized quilt ~

It is just stunning and Sheriah, another friend did the quilting!!  It is always so amazing to me how many blessings come into my life because of quilting and all the wonderful women I have had the opportunity to meet!!

Diana, may you be at peace with your Heavenly Father!!

Hexagon Giveaway!!

Ok, so I just got a new shipment of goodies in today and I ordered something new:  a HONEYCOMB Pack.  Now, I know what Charm Packs are and Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls but did not know what a Honeycomb Pack was until I opened the box!!

Very cool and I know that a certain somebody will love this collection of Paisley Park by Kansas Trouble Quilters because the collection is definitely "dark and dirty"!!  So, in honor of that certain somebody, I am giving a Pack away!

Just let me know in your comment what in world you would do with the honeycomb shape in one of your quilts!!  Because I would have no idea what to do with them except make gigantic hexagon flowers!!

I will chose a winner next Tuesday before I go up to the Blackfoot Quilt Fest in Blackfoot, Idaho!!

Mary Jane Got Her Goodies . . .

and so now I can show you what she got and her cute email that came after she opened her package ~

Hi, Kris!  Well, it only took 3 days!  I love my package.  I'm already imagining what the fabrics will become, and I think the hearts will be so much fun to create something with. They make me think of Jenny of Elefantz, who combines appliqué with crewel embroidery and comes up with beautiful finishes, though not strictly a quilter. Are you familiar with her?   Here's her blog:

Of course, I'm not a quilter, either, but you've given me inspiration to try, and I thank you for that as much as the gifts.  I wondered if I should admit that for fear you'd think your gifts would go to waste, but please be sure that I'll use what I can and share what I don't.  Cross stitch is my main stitching joy, so fabrics are great for finishing those projects, too. The button says it all!

Thanks for sharing your talent and your sweet spirit on your blog, and this great giveaway with me.  I'll do my best to make you proud!

Mary Jane
Hopefully we now have a new quilter on our hands!!

Yay!! Got Something Completed!!

This dang viral cold is just a hangin' on big time but I did manage to get a couple of projects done.  I was able to get March's 2 Hexie Flowers completed!!  Typically I am scrambling at the end of the month, so there is a silver lining to being sick!!

These little cuties are going to Edda in ICELAND!!  How fun is that??

Edda wanted reproduction prints so I thought these would work well in her flower garden!!

I also got a little project completed for a friend but forgot to take pictures before I took it over to her last night.  Hopefully I can get some before she gives it to her Grandson.  Stay tuned!!
