Quilt for Riggs

I have a new great grandson, Riggs.  I made him this quilt and my friend Marlin quilted it for me on her long arm.  Riggs was born with some serious health issues.  If you are prayer warrior or would like to be, please pray for baby Riggs and for his family.  Oh, I will be visiting with him in Texas in November.  Cannot wait to hold him in my arms and tell him he is loved.

What I Am Working On

My son-in-laws mother hand pieced this quilt top.  The top was found when they were cleaning out her house and they asked me if I would hand quilt it for them.  I love quilting this top and it is going to be a special memory in their family.

Sweet Land of Liberty

This wall hanging was a "Block of the Week" from our local quilt shop, City Square Quilts.
It was so much fun to make and will make a great wall hanging next year for Memorial Day and  July 4th.

Finished!!  This quilt was from a block of the month and it was a quilt that I kept telling myself  "I will finish this quilt"  Thankfully it is finished and really turned out better than I thought it would.  Onward to my next project.

April 17 2016

I just finished reading The Guilty by David Baldacci.  This was the first book by Baldacci that I have ever read but it will not be my last.  It was a great story line, well written with an awesome ending.

February 28, 2016 Star Wars Quilt

I am blessed with six great grandsons.  With the exception of one, I made each of them a quilt when they were born.  But one of the little guys was born at a time when I was taking care of my husband and I just did not have the time, energy or creative juices to make him a quilt.  He did get several receiving blankets that I made for him when he was born. 

He is a big fan of Star Wars and when I saw Star Wars fabric I decided that I owed him a quilt.

Here is the quilt and I do hope he will enjoy cuddling with it.

January 12 2016 Tuesday

This was a "block of the month" series during 2015.  Finally finished piecing and getting a border on it.  I love the colors but not so much the design.  Now to purchase backing and get to quilting it.  Quilting always enhances the looks of a quilt.
