back to the same old job, just a different truck

Back on the road again

Got to visit my chat friend Play4Dixie when I went thru Cullman, Alabama a few days ago. Not a real great picture, but what did we expect when we shanghied a strange trucker into taking our picture LOL

Another Nickel................

Here I go playing with my nickel scraps again..... This one is called Texas Two Step from the Amazing Nickel Quilt book by Pat Speth. I had these 6 nickels of crayons and that inspired the whole baby quilt. This is a super fun pattern to do. I have 3 Nickel books and it seems like I want to make most of the patterns in them, so I am going to be making baby quilts from time to time just to try out the patterns.

Ok, here's another one LOL. Been playing in my nickel bins again and came up with this one called Stretched Stars from the first nickel book by Pat Speth.

I cheated !

I had this horse panel in my stash and since my chat friend that is in charge of getting quilts for Camp Erin needs more quilts, and especially boy quilts, I quilted and bound this one real fast. It came out better than I thought it would for a cheater.

Quilts For Kids

this is the link to request a kit to help this wonderful charity. I did not request a kit , altho several of my chat friends did. I am going to do my best to help them with a few small quilts.
It also helps me.... I am using up tidbits of batting left over from the bigger quilts and this one used up some left over 9 patches from a swap I used to belong to.

First February Finish

Here it is! My first ever bargello quilt all finished! I had so much fun with this quilt. It was breaking out of my comfort zone because I had never done the "tube" thing before. A big thanks goes to Bonnie Hunter for her wonderful directions and the inspiration she gives me. This is the 4th one of her quilts I have made so far, so I guess that makes me a Bonnie groupie LOL.

A finish for January

Well, here it is again, time to get ready for Camp Erin (grief counciling camp for kids). Each child gets welcomed to the camp with a brand new quilt on their bed and at the end of camp the quilt goes home with the child as a reminder that someone cares. A very good friend of mine collects the quilts and distributes them to the camp and every year I try to contribute a few quilts to help them meet their goal of 100. The green camping fabric in this quilt was given to me a couple of years ago by that friend as an "ugly" fabric challenge and this will be the 2nd quilt that has sprung from it. Hopefully some little boy will think it is not ugly at all and claim it as his own.
