Been Busy Doing...................


Half Square Trianges for the Liberty quilt with no end in sight yet! I'm about half way done with the HSTs for this quilt. The HSTs are coming out nice and square with the use of Thangles, but it means a lot of paper ripping!!!!!

I have another pile as big as this pile of Thangles to go when I get done with this one!! I decided to go smallest amount to biggest amount, which was probably the wrong way to go---LOL!! But I'm sure I'll like the results when I'm done, so I will press on.

The Mystery quilt top is all finished and I will post a picture as soon as I can get my quilt holder to hold it up for me--haven't been able to remember to do that when he is home for some reason--too many other things going on, I guess!!

We've been having the most wonderful weather--March certainly came in like a lamb--daffodils are blooming and I even saw some iris in a yard looking so pretty--ours are growing green and nice, but no blossoms yet. I have wood violets and spring beauties that are very lovely though! Spring is a very colorful time of the year, don't you think?

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

LOL, I had a sewing date with one of my quilting buddies. I think she invited me because she wanted help tearing paper off all the HST's she had sewn the day before. We had fun, but I sure didn't get much done on my project.

YOu are the HST queen...I thought about making an Ocean Waves quilt...but rejected the idea because of toooo many HST. I can't wait to see the finished product.

I am making three rag quilts and did the same thing, started with the smallest one. Yor are right, probably the wrong way around. LOL
