Abigail's Blanket

Tonight I finished a crocheted baby blanket for my 2nd Granddaughter Abigail Leeann. She is due in 1 week and I am happy to get this done.  I know her big sister Gracie is excited to have a little sister. They will be almost 3 years apart.  She calls me GG and I am excited for Abigail to arrive.  I am also working on a quilt for her.

Current 2016 Projects

I have 2 quilts quilted toward my goal of 7 for 2016. The first quilt has a challenge fabric (lighter Blue) for a retreat challenge at Camp Canyon, Hinton, OK.  The second one was a ready made table topper I used as a vintage piece.  I used the rulers for my domestic machine.  Love those rulers.

New Year-2016

Yes, a New Year has come-2016-and 2015 is gone with good memories. The year 2016 will bring me a new Greatddaughter in February and a new Granddaughter in May which means my Granddaughter Gracie will have a little sister.   I am a very proud Grandma/Great Grandma.  So with this in mind my word for 2016 is "Future".  I am looking forward and the future to playing  with my two new little girls and Gracie.   I am also looking into this"Future 2016 Year" to have seven completed quilts quilted and completely done. (last year I completed 5 quilts)  I plan this "Future" year to have more UFO quilt tops finished. And in this "Future Year" I plan to continue using my scrap stash.  Bonnie Hunter of continues to inspire me and I am looking forward to her "Future" Mystery Quilt next fall. In the "Future" 2016 months I plan to go on a Retreat in March, going to Paducah with four friends in April and my Guild Retreat in the fall. This future year I want to use my embroidery machine more and to use my EQ7/EQ Stitch.  I wish every one Happy New Year for our "Future" year of 2016.

Bonnie Hunter MQ Block

I have one star block done. I know the picture is blurred, but my  essential tremor is acting up today.  But the picture should give an idea of my colors and fabrics I have chosen. I still have to do steps five  and six. But, I got excited that I could do  1 block for show and tell. Except for the neutrals I stayed with the same fabric throughout.  Thank you Bonnie giving this MQ to everyone.

Quiltville MQ 3rd Clue

Well, I don't have any of the steps so far completed.  However, I am working on it.   As Bonnie has said, if you get steps completed to do enough of them to be able to start putting it  together at result time,  So I can always go back and finish each step.  I am not a fast sewer and not in a race.  So today I am posting some of the 4 patches.  Shown here are 40 of them.  I do have more to complete 120, but have to put each half together.

Nearing Goal

I am nearing my completed quilted quilt goal I made for myself after Christmas.  I have 4 quilts finished and quilted.  I need to do 1 more in order to complete my goal for the year.  And that one is nearly done.  Shown here are the 4 I have completed.
The last 2 pictures is the Bonnie Hunter mystery and very happy to have it done. It was given to my youngest son and his wife.  That was one big quilt and heavy.  One more to go to meet my goal for this year.

I found my signature house quilt and it dates back to 1996. It is signed by Guild members at that time. I think I will quilt it so I can say "I got er' done.

Machine Embroidery Quilt

I have finished another project.  This time it is my Molly Mine machine embroidery.  I did the embroidery at my small group retreat a couple of years ago.  It was a lot of fun to do as we swapped fabrics and thread. I stay so far behind in finishing my projects, so I am very happy to have this done.
