Liberty Quilt and Sunbonnet Sue

 This patriotic quilt is Yellow Brick Road pattern and is for Project Linus.
This one is Sunbonnet Sue showing the 4 seasons.  It is done with watercolor pencils.  It was a new-to-me technique, but lots of fun.  This one is on my sewing room wall.

Trip to the Grandgirls!

 Spent a wonderful 4 days in Columbus, OH with our granddaughters.  This is Isabel, 14 years old, practicing her 100 meters run.  She's also going to run the 200 meter and 440 meter races.
This is Ilena, 12 years old in her dance recital costume.  She did an excellent job.  Such fun to watch.  They are growing up so fast!!

We also drove out of our way (just 100 miles round trip)  on our way back home to Texas to stop at Hancock's of Paducah  fabric store.  What a wonderful place.  Only took 45 minutes to spend  some $$$!!!!  But got some good bargains!

BLOOM










This is a pattern from Lori Holt, Bee in her Bonnet.  It's called BLOOM.  I made it much smaller than it called for because I will send it to Project Linus.  Fun quilt to do.

Amish Wall hanging and Project Linus



I hung the Amish Wall Hanging in my sewing room. Have always admired this pattern and now I finally did it.  The pattern is from Rachel T. Pellman, Rachel's of Greenfield.  My hubby custom- quilted it.  He did a great job!

The Project Linus quilt (first one) is quilted with lots of big construction equipment.  Some little boy should like.

Two for Project Linus

 This one is fabric from the book "Guess How Much I love You."    The bunny fabric is so cute.
This one is airplanes and quilted with helicopters.  Fun!  I hope some little boy will like it!

New for Project Linus



The top one is quilted with Thomas the Train.  The second one is quilted with a whirlwind design like it is blowing around the whirligigs!  It was made with partial seams, which weren't too bad once I got the idea of it!  But once I got it I had to finish them all at once because I would forget which way they went in!

Two for Project Linus


Two for Project Linus.  Although i should have used a darker yellow for the star point, they both were fun to do.
