He loved this quilt and used to keep it in the SUV, but now it has been retired because he has a new one.
Almost forgot, the name of this quilt is: Catch 'Em Two at a Time Baby!

As I said previously I love the black and white with brights combination. That's why I have so many black and white prints.
These aren't the best pictures, but I hope you can see most of them.
I've been spending quite a bit of time cleaning the sewing room lately. I have tons of things I'll be trying to make disappear. LOL So in honor of my 50th post yesterday I will give this book to the first person who comments saying they would like to have it. Otherwise it will go into the donation box.
Hope you all have a great Spring weekend!

This is my very first quilt. Made in 1994. It is hand quilted and I don't know how I did it. As I remember I purchased the fattest batting I could find. The colors matched the living room in my condo and I thought it was wonderful. Now, not so much. I have never cared much for heart quilts and the colors are just a bit pale compared to those I like now.
This quilt did teach me something. Never hand quilt fat batting!

This is one of the quilts on my Spring To Finish list. Check it out on the sidebar.
Hosta is one of my favorite plants. I grow lots of them. If you look closely you can see this one had a visitor. A Lady Bug. Happy Quilting!

In my previous post I did not tell the whole story about making the challenge quilt and the new scrap baby quilt.
So here's the story. I had an iron whose temperature I could not control ( something happened to the dial). So about 10 months ago I bought a new one. Right in the middle of making the challenge quilt it stopped working. Dead nothing. So I got out the first iron which my Wonderful Husband said he fixed. I pressed 2 seams and the next thing you know the worst burning wire smell started coming from it. So there goes iron #2. Finally I had to dig out the old iron my Wonderful Husband used before we were married. It is approximately 25 years old. It worked. It's still working. So what does that say? They don't make things like they used to? This weekend I will most likely be looking for a new iron. Again!

I took these pictures on the patio today and Pollen was everywhere. So now I'm suffering. Going to take my allergy meds. HAPPY QUILTING!

I put these scraps together today and it looks like they may make a cute baby quilt.
Don't quite have the borders figured out, so I'll leave it up on the design wall until something hits me.

If you've read this blog before you know that I like scraps. Below is a little scrap thingy I made for my sisters and myself. I carry it in my handbag and it's very useful.
