Quilt is done and the giveaway is Tuesday!









Wow! what a great response and so much fun for me...I still am trying to email everyone back and visit some new blogs...I just love talking to the quilters and looking at all the great quilts...I am really pleased with how my giveaway quilt turned out and I hope whoever wins it likes it as much as I do! Speaking of Quilters, Jean the quilting granny is having a giveaway on her blog...go see her..She is one of my very good friends and I love ya Jean..http://quiltingranny.blogspot.com Just scroll down and you will see it...she is giving away various quilting things and the giveaway is October first..... I also finished my Halloween Swap..It was a ten dollar limit so I really got creative...even sprayed some branches from the yard black. I really, really, had fun making this..just played with fabric like a little kid until it took shape. i never have a plan, it just kind of turns into what it wants to be. I just run the sewing machine like a madwoman...Also another quiltie for my sewing circle group...Judy's theme was chickens so being inspired by a handsome rooster at the State fair I had to stitch him up...these little quilts are 6x8 which actually is really small to fit a bunch of stuff on...I wont say they are any quicker though... I also am showing a picture of two of my first run of quilts hanging on the line...Is there anything better? They make me smile looking so pretty out there. The blue one is Coopers..Dogs need snuggle quilts too...I didn't get to go to Portland..I am pretty disappointed, but I have been using the time to work on projects...It makes me feel better. Julie decided to stay another week in Oregon, and I just couldn't go for that long! Lisa is thinking of moving to Utah though, and I am hoping for that...I miss my kids!!!!!

Wow! Do you have a long or short arm quilting machine or do you use a regular machine? I am amazed at how many wonderful people are joining this swap and I am so happy for you but sad you didn't get to go to Oregon. What a blessing it would be for Lisa to start fresh, I have you all in my prayers!

Melinda - how do you get so many quilts done??? I am so pokey with mine. You must have a long arm machine too... I'd love to get one, trying to quilt on a regular machine is a challenge! Love Judy's chicken! And your Halloween cone turned out awesome!!!

Everything from the Quilts to the Rooster Quiltie are great! I love chickens and roosters. In my kitchen I have several, made from different things and love them all. :)
