some fun

 I pulled out an oldy that I had been working on and started to finish the applique I have the fabric picked out on what will be in between the layout
 This is one of the blocks that I like these are just made from scraps in my scrap barrel, it is supposed to be about a quilters journey so these fabrics have memories of other quilts
 Another favorite. The black and white is in most of my scrappy quilts for some reason...LOL so my mom says anyways

still working on the baskets

fantastic walking dead fabric that I am working with

Pattern and fabric so far I love it 
I am at 180 of these baskets I have 120 more to go I have done another swap of 6in blocks so will be able to use them 120 light and 120 dark through a yahoo group called Small Talk with Kathleen Tracy she creates these fabulous mini quilts and has a huge following.

Then below you will see a different side of me. Walking Dead fabric is this not awesome?! I bought it from LogCabin Yardage and I am sorry to say but I bought the whole bolt I am not sure if she can get more. This is a quilt for a friend that wanted a black white and red quilt with absolutely no flowers! I showed her the fabric knowing she loves walking dead and she has not see the pattern I am using yet.

So as you can see a quilter can be a little versatile, fabric and quilters comes in all forms.

Well off to start another week but dreaming of quilting of course.

This is what is required to post on my blog.

I have been busy and creating

I have been building on PHD`s (projects half finished.) 

Bloggers Quilt Festival- hostess of course is Blogger Amy`s Creative Side is here and this is the best time to post and place in a catagory one of my finishes. What more motivation than viewing the other bloggers and what they have created?

This was a finish a couple of years ago, I had won a little packet of fabric those wee 2 1/2in blocks, then this was a free pattern I am sorry i cannot remember what group or designer. 

Then I had to hand quilt it of course.  I had a friend that really liked it and so I gave it to her. Not to worry she will love it for ever she is one that loves quilts 

And of course you always have to put your foot in it when you take a picture 

taking a few stitches here and there.
