Stop the world and let me off

March surely came in as a lion. I have spent most of it back and forth to my mothers. She had eye surgery on each eye and it went really well. In between that time we pieced 2 sampler BOM`s into tops and made a stack and whack. Finished a flannel quilt top which is at my friends house she will machine quilt that way am I hand quilting flannel!!. pictures will be next time.

These are swap blocks from 2007 that I have finally been able to get together. It was so big I had to lay it sideways so the iron is not floating. The log cabin pattern was from one of the BOM's my mother was doing at another store I liked it so much I decided to use it for this layout of my siggy blocks. It will be called "Friends around the block". I see with this picture it is not together but it is now..LOL

This was the mini I had made to go to Ireland, I forgot to take a picture of it done I had quilted 1/2 inch grid on it. Micki has not received it as yet the mail is taking forever!! I had cut it with the swag so that it is curved binding around it. This was fun to make but alot of work for a short time. I know Micki is making a big Rose of Sharon and thought this would go nicely with it.
These are the blocks I just got back from my canadian yahoo group are they not gorgeous!! I am going to put 4 1/2in maple leaves in the sashing with the siggy squares we all made to go with the blocks it will be fall like.

I also had some sad news my poor Britnee has finally gone to puppy heaven Mar 29th. She was 13years old and had a great life. I thank God for letting me borrow her for a while. DH and I have decided no more puppies. This part of their lives is just to hard to take.

Well I am going to be quilter of the Month at one of the quilt guilds I belong to  York Heritage  there are over 150 members and they all know me but what is really exciting is Becky Goldsmith is going to be there so I am bringing my Flourishes quilt and my Aunt Millies...they are both still flimsies but I am sure she will love to see them.


  1. Goodness you have been busy!! Love the house quilt, something on my todo list someday :0)

    I'm so sorry to hear of your fur baby's passing!!



  2. Deb, I am so sorry to hear about Britnee - she was such a sweetie. I know you will miss her very much.
    I love your blocks, they are all so gorgeous! The Maple Leaf blocks are great in fall colours. Two colour quilts in red and white are going to become popular following the exhibition recently in New York so you will be right up there! I'm sure Micki will love her beautiful quilt too.

  3. Love the school house quilt! After seeing all these pics online of the Red and White quilt exhibit, I am ready to make one of my own!


  4. The house quilt is wonderful! Red & white and house blocks. Can't get better.

  5. Not a lot of grass growing under your feet. I wish I had that much to show so far. The quilt group is in for a treat.

  6. Your Friends around the Block is turning out gorgeous and the special little quilt for Micki is adorable!

  7. I'm so sorry that your Britnee had to leave you for awhile. What a kind nd comforting way to describe your time with her. <3

  8. great quilts and I love the mini, maybe Micki can send me a picture to add to the slide show.
    Love it
