Working on a quilt for a friend who was jealous that she never got one of my quilts.  Blocks are all finished!  Now onto the pieced borders.  It sure is interesting how many different ways you can combine jelly roll strips.

Farmer's Wife Blocks - 9 so far

After working on a few blocks for a friend's quilt, I took time out to work on my Farmer's Wife blocks.  It's been a long time and I truly enjoyed working on the 2 that I completed today.  However, at this rate, it's going to take me years to complete the blocks. I'll have to remember more often to pull out my project box and get going!  I've completed 8 now!

My first Dresden

I've been putting off doing these for years and now that I've completed two of them, I'm not sure why.  They are really easy.  I was also able to finish two of the BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop and am now patiently waiting for the next.  I'm trying to decide the background for the dresden plates!  I hope it doesn't take as long as it did for me to actually make them!  Maybe a Kona snow???

2011 NYE Mystery

This was a fun mystery....all completed in about a day.  I know why there is such a thing as a seam ripper after this quilt. I also know why pins were invented.  It was a lot of fun to complete and I look forward to the next endeavor.
