With the weather this way presently, I am so glad we were able to get to the park yesterday. Ended up staying over two hrs. After our picnic lunch, Ayden went scoping out some kids to run around with on the playground. I sat there and worked on my Dancing Stars quilt with some perle cotton in navy. I have the center blocks done and working my way outward. It's a great project for those park days!

The day before our park trip, we had some friends over and while the kids played, my friend, B. and I went upstairs to the studio. B. has been sewing her bindings on by hand and she wanted to learn how to machine stitch one on. She is entering it into a local quilt show. I showed her my technique and then also told her I originally learned from Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts. It felt really good to teach someone a skill for sewing!!
I showed her around my studio to include this huge pile of scraps from all the baby clothes I cut up the day prior for my next commission.
pattern. Sometime next week, I will be cutting into some Kona Ivory for the sashing.
pattern by Pam Lincoln over at Mama Spark's World. I ordered a pair of chenille scissors as well that should be here today. I will be using a charm pack of Posy and some coordinating prints for the top patchwork squares. This is a quilt for my new niece! Eeeeek!!!! I may,just may,get started today.
My March block for Lucky Stars BOM. Looks can be deceiving. This is actually around 1/2" too short. Oy vey....it's a seam ripper kind of job here:/
new design wall! It's about time I say! I bought a really big piece of foam board at Lowes. First I taped the batting to the back. Then I added staples. The hubs nailed it to the wall and for about $30 I have an awesome design wall!!!!
Love to you all!!!
