Project Linus Quilts Again

Three more quilts ready to go to the pick-up place for Project Linus. Because the kids in the squares are showing off braces and teeth, I named this first one after the old commercial (Look Ma, no cavities)...."Look Ma, Polka Dots."

The second one is named after Trix cereal because it is bright colors and reminded me of Trix! I called it "Yellow Trix."

The third one is called Blue Yonder. It's a Log Cabin from a layer cake. Those are fun ones to do because you use every bit of fabric in the layer cake!

I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving! It's my favorite holiday of the year! Remember to think of at least one thing you are thankful for!

What I've been working on........

Sorry to have been neglecting my blog lately, but I have been working on a Christmas present and couldn't show it here because "someone" might see it!

So here is something I have been working on, too. A magnolia flower embroidery set off with little one inch squares. I have all the little one inch square alternate blocks done, but still have at least half of the 40 flower blocks to go. I am using Sulky Blendables thread and it is great! The flowers are fun to do. I have made a couple of Project Linus quilt tops, too and need to get them quilted---that's the part I tend to put off! Maynard's been too busy to help me out on the PL quilts, so I have been quilting them on the Bernina. I've grown afraid of the Little Gracie Pro II for some reason and don't like to quilt on it----afraid I will mess it up. But the Bernina works great for quilting the smaller quilts.

Also in the middle of putting together a quilt from the "Farm Fresh" line of fabric. Maybe can show that one soon!

We have been getting some "teases" of rain here. How about in your part of the country?

Good Monday Morning!

It's Monday morning and I decided to take a break from my cleaning chores and take a break. I only have one quilt to show this morning. It was already to quilt and was donated by my lovely friends at Quilt Mercantile Quilt Shop. Isn't it a cute one. Everyone seems to come up with such different ideas for alphabet panels---so much fun to see what they include! Some little boy or girl will enjoy this one through Project Linus.

Supposed to get rain for next couple of days. Hopefully get enough to help with drought a little bit. The lakes are so down. Good weather to snuggle down and work on quilts!
