GO SHOCKERS !!!!!! Can’t help but be excited about the Wichita State Shocker basketball team ! I don’t normally follow basketball at any level, but find myself caught up in the talent and the classy character of these young men. This is a block of 5 in bedrunner model I made for my TRIPLE PLAY BEDRUNNER pattern. The pattern includes instructions for t-shirt blocks, large print blocks, or sampler blocks. Silly me, at this point I can’t figure out how to get a full pic of the runner without getting blurry – will keep working on that. Anyway, GO SHOCKS !!!!!!
This is Miss Haley. She is the store mascot of PICKET FENCE QUILT COMPANY in Wichita Kansas. She also happens to be sister to my Wylie. “Aunt Debbie” gets a wonderfully excited welcome when she pops in at Picket Fence, expecially if she brings a new toy to dismantle. HA!
MY, MY !!! I’VE GOT THE BLUES!
This beautiful sampler was made by Prairie Quilt Guild (Wichita, Ks) member LEE MIESCHER. She assembled the 12 blocks I designed for the 2013 newsletter, other sampler blocks, and a lovely sprinkle of just-right applique. She also did her own quilting.
I was quite taken when they unfurled it on stage for show-n-share this month. Great job, Lee !!!!
Rarely do I get to “surf the net”. But found a great surprise last month with pics of my FANCY THAT pattern. These two are from a long-arm quilter named Linda. She did quilting for 2 ladies she met at RAINBOWS AND CALICO THINGS quilt retreat. Linda’s quilting is so lovely – had to share with you all. And RAINBOWS AND CALICO THINGS shop is a treasure, as they have sold so very many of FANCY THAT pattern. Check out more of what Miss Linda is up to: www.lrdesignsquilting.comn And look in on RAINBOWS AND CALICO THINGS
Here is great-niece Piper’s quilt pic in progress. Quilt is actually done and presented to her at Christmas. But boo hoo! Sis nor I got a pic of finished product. Couple years ago my sister made us all pillowcases for Christmas. Had leftover Florida Gator fabric pieces. So I designed a quilt, sister stitched it together (She did a GREAT job for a novice quilt piecer!) We both tied it, with snuggly orange minky for the back, and I did binding in blue. Now everyone wants a quilt backed with minky!
Today I did a bit of cleaning, baking cookies for our family Thanksgiving, some computer work, the dogs outside for the day before a cold front hits, and sewing with Freebie the cockatiel.
I’m making a new model of my biggest seller FANCY THAT. I’d forgotten how fast, fun, and easy this puppy goes together. It’s still so amazing to me the sales just keep going and going and going like the Energizer Bunny! Fat Quarter friendly too!
Really enjoying re-visiting this one. And a day at home with a wine spritzer. HA!
