Early Head Start quilt project

My beginner quilting class at church has made quilts to decorate the new Early Head Start building. Babies through 3 years old will enjoy the walls decorated with the quilts we have made. The beginner quilting class called The Cornerstone Quilters started July 2010, since then we have created seven quilts. We have used the advantage of cute quilt panels for the centers and all class members made the same block to surround the panel. Saturday classes have been for layering and construction techniques. Now we are machine quilting, some are not comfortable with that yet. Four quilts are complete, three still to be layered and quilted.
Our last quilt is to be used as a floor quilt, we are using all our orphan blocks etc. It is turning our very cute and will post pic of it next,
Enjoy our Cornerstone Quilt Show!
Happy Quilting,



                            Our first quilt 4 Patch and Double 4 Patch, the center has our Cornerstone Quilters name and FPC for First Presbyterian Church and the Christian fish symbol. Class members name are embroidered on individual patches. 14 members in all.

First border finished

The center border is finished -  now I can cut strips for the other Guild members who are my helpers!
Great progress this week. Wool appliqued holly and berries will accent the tan corners and the outer border.
I can relax now that I know my layout will work. Thanks for viewing my blog!!!
Happy Quilting,

Designing Raffle Quilt for Stitching Memories Quilt Guild

I was asked to be in charge of our next project Raffle Quilt for our Holiday Bazaar 2011.Of course I started designing right away. From first drawing to actual layout has been quite a lot of fun. Using my grandchildrens colored markers has been so much fun. Posting design layout using a colorful winter scene fabric seen through a window. Name of quilt " I'll Be Home For Christmas". The smaller version of the winter seen will be the outside border with wool applique holly and berries, wool also used on the tan corner blocks around the center medallion.
First change - working on smaller log cabin border for window.

added border to Teapot Fancy

Yesterday I added the pieced sashing  and blue border and I love it, brings out all the blue accents!
Considering the green paisley for outside border but the blue might be enough, what do you think?
Happy Quilting,

This teapot quilt is so much fun, background yellow fabric has teacups and saucers. I am making this for my Mother's 89th birthday.


Yes I did and it was hot as blazes at 4pm at the first 7th grade football game! but worth it because it was Abbey's first game as cheerleader!!! What a  cutie!!!
Tonight grandson Cody highschool senior has a game in Guthrie ( 1 1/2 hr away north), Saturday 8am grandson Alex 5 has first flag football game in Burleson Tx ( 2 1/2  hr south) What a crazy good weekend!
Be back home Sun night and ready to quilt all day Monday!
Hope you all have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!

Medallion quilt dressed up with pillows and Schnauzers

I put my decorator hat on today and dressed the quilt up with pillows I already had in another room, then put on my pet photographer hat on and got pic of Samantha and Taffeta on the quilt. I am worn out now after trying to get those 2 precious girls to look at me at the same time!  I needed Victoria Stillwell behind me.
I will love making the bed now that I have completed the look I wanted!
Happy quilting!!!
