BACK TO SCHOOL--

I got the pattern out and cut apart--
then found all the greens and white fabrics--
then--
tried to remember 'how' to do paper piecing--
and after a quick trip to the quilt shop for a refresher lesson--
I managed to get 2 sections of the tree done and a 3rd section prepared!!!
so I am on my way!!!

Merry Christmas--di and miss gracie

JULY'S CHALLENGE

Can you believe that it is the first of July?????
and now we will be on the downhill spiral for the holidays--
once again--
So I guess this month it should be something to do with one of the holidays coming up!!!
So here is the plan--
Challenge--
do a project for Christmas that you want   for yourself--
and have not gotten to it, yet!!!!

This is to be mine--
This is a tall Christmas tree-
it is paper pieced--
Last year my quilt shop had one in the window and everytime I stopped in,
I wanted to make one-
finally bought the pattern and this was to be January's project--
wellllll--
it is now July --
so it's time to stop and just make it--!!!
now to finds all the green fabrics I need--
hope I have them in my stash???????

What will be your project???
Remember this is something for you and your home--
we work on the gift stuff all them time!!

JUNE'S PROJECT--

Is all done--
From start to finish all in one month--wow!!!!!
This little civil war flying geese quilt has now been hand quilted and has the binding on it--
so it is already to enjoy it's life as display piece!


Did you get anything done in June with flying geese on it?????


And--have no fear--
I do have July's challenge all figured out--
and 'yes' there will be NO flying geese in it--
unless that is what you want to do!!

I HAVE BEEN FLYING--

Went from this--
to this--
to this--
to this!!!!!
the only thing that I did was use Jo Morton's flying geese pattern for the geese--
the rest I just did by the seat of  my 'pants'--
and I love it when something comes together so nicely--
the House print I got some time ago and only got a 1/2yd--
so that meant I only could make something 18 inches wide to use it on--
and this just came out perfect!!!
But now I have not idea how to quilt it?????????????
