I never thought that I would ever buy stonehenge fabric till I saw this pattern click on the title and it will bring you there. After I saw this I went to Sew Sisters they have a wide range with great prices bought the fabric and have cut out what I needed.. all I need is the time to start sewing it.
Right now I am working on a project that requires cutting up some dresses of long ago and sewing them into a quilt. I am using a quilt as you go method. As soon as I find where the heck I put my camera I will post.
This weekend is for the Bunnies and Earth Day hope you all are able to celebrate in some way.

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 one...no 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.
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.

I just read very sad news today a great quilter has passed I have used her books many times for different projects I am sure you have read when I have made my swap blocks using her fantastic books for reference.
I had emailed her late last year to say how much I had enjoyed her books not expecting a response cause I am sure she received many but she did email back with exciting news that she would be coming out with a new book I couldn`t believe that I got a reply it was so kind of her...this is a great quilting loss to me.
Keep healthy quilters
I will have pictures to post later this weekend I got my wonderful mini from Micki and some other stuff will be posted.
