This old quilt!

This gorgeous blue Quilt is gracing my bed.  I made it 18 years ago for my parents. They had a Murphy Bed in the apartment inside their shop/metal building and needed one that didn't hang down on the sides.  Their Murphy bed was king size so the quilt was long for that.  Now on my bed this beauty is sideways.  It is not quite long enough to completely hide my electric blanket but that's ok.  I just love this!


This week I put together the disappearing 9 patch block from @thecraftyquilter.  (Thecraftyquilter.com). She held a QAL that I couldn't resist.  It would have made a really nice queen size Quilt but I chose to make it into 2 lap quilts.  I always have such a need for lapquilts and my supply is very low.   They are my very favorite color combination - blue and purple.  Paired with a white background, it just pops.


Besides making these this week, I've completed 6 couch caddy's for the NP Comforts group.  We need 250 by Christmas to give to the Meals on Wheels recipients in our area.

I'm hoping to get to Quilt a couple tops this week.  I better hurry!  The week is zooming by!

Good Morning Friends!

Its a beautiful day full of sunshine!  I'm posting from sunny Denver, here visiting with my sisters.  Mom and I drove here to celebrate her 93rd birthday with family and friends.  It's been just wonderful!
I'd like to share a few things I finished for the month of May.

This is a Baby Quilt I made for my niece whose baby is due any day!  The back is below.  I love this quilting pattern. 


Up next are 2 essential oil bags I made and added to my etsy shop.  They are the perfect size and hold 10 or more bottles


  


Up next is a pincushion I made from selvage edges.  I LOVE selvedges!   Someday I am going to make a quilt using them.  This also is listed in my etsy shop!

Almost 3 years

So much has happened since my last post.   I can hardly believe it's been almost 3 years!   Biggest change is losing my hubby a year ago.    It was a hard time but many lessons were learned and so many good memories were created during that time.  I truly wish I had written them down, kept a record to be able to go back and remember it all.  But, sadly, I did not.   My time was needed in the present.  I have no regrets and I know I will see Denny again!   
In this last year I have been extremely busy with quilting and reshaping my life.  I think it's time to share again.   
I'll be back tomorrow.   See you then.  
Make some glorious moments today!

Made this little bag today from a pattern shared on Pat Sloan's blog and the Fat Quarter Shop!  Isn't this just the cutest?

Baby Quilt

This is another finished baby quilt for church.    I think I have one more to do and I'll be caught up.  These go so quickly.  

This center panel is so cute.  Doris provided me with this one and she added the borders.  I cut all the pieces, did the quilting and put on the binding.  Check another one off!

Finished quilts

My friend picked up her finished quilt today.  I did the entire quilt in Free Motion and I love it.   She did too!  I completely forgot to take a picture of the entire quilt🙁

Cards

Recently I made a few cards.  This first one is for the June Summer Swap with Stampin Gals Gone Wild.  I really love how this turned out and plan to make a couple more.

This next one is for the June Birthday girls from that group!

This last one isn't designated for anyone yet but I just adore this stamp set.
