Monday Making

It's time!
Time to think about what I'll be making THIS week.

The only thing I can commit to is binding.
(life has been full with moving parents
and cleaning out parents house...
WHAT a JOB!!)

Hopefully this quilt will be BOUND by Friday.
;)
Goals are good.

I love this quilt.
I love the quilted lines.
I love the stars.

Now....
the question is....
What fabric will I use for binding?????
I'll be digging
BEFORE 
I'll be binding.

After all...
I have SO much fabric
I can't see buying something!!!
DIGGING it IS!

Hah!
What are you up too???
Please link up and share.

Again...
I'm so happy to be a part of this wonderful neighborhood I call...
BLOGLAND!

Simple Quilts

It's a JOY to make simple quilts.


Simple quilts that will give warmth and happiness!

These two quilts will be donated to a school in Kenya.
It was FUN taking lots of flannel scraps and
making something useful!

The scraps in this quilt are BIG.
They were given to me and needed VERY LITTLE trimming.
They were MEANT to be together.
;)
The farm animals are even going the RIGHT direction!
LOL!

Even BIG scraps can find a happy home in a QUILT!!!

Monday


Monday is here.... But I'm not making. 
I'm moving my fatherinlaw to his new home! Seems appropriate to be helping a veteran on this holiday weekend. ;)

Hope to be back next week with a linky party!

Potholders shown were made last week and given away already!!
I will never tire of making and giving!

Blogger's Quilt Festival

It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival again!

Thought I'd share my most recent finish.

This quilt is for a high school graduate.
The strips of blue, brown, gold.....etc.
found a happy home in this scrappy quilt!

If you visit me here often...
You KNOW I love scrappy quilts!

I was happy to find a bright modern print for the backing too!

Scraps are not wasted at MY house.
;)



They always find a HAPPY HOME.

Enjoy the quilt show!
Thanks for stopping by.
