Scrap-Basket Sensations Blog Tour
Day Ten
Today is my day...this has been a lot of fun...I was very excited when Kim e-mailed me and asked me if I would like to participate in the Blog Tour...I jumped at the chance. Unfortunately I was away for part of the tour and didn't get a chance to start a project from the book...but that sure didn't stop me from picking out the projects I want to do...no your eyes aren't playing tricks on you...yes I have sticky notes on 6 quilts...and those are just the ones I want to do really soon. Kim did an amazing job with this book...great quilts, and outstanding instructions...as I read through the book, picking out my must do's I read instructions...I found them to be very clear, concise, not to wordy, just right.
First on my list is Summer Daze...it's my favorite...Picnic will be next...I'm seeing lots of fabrics that will work great for this one...it's such a happy quilt. You know how I love the dark colors so Lake Cabin and Blessings from the Hollow are just waiting for me. I'd like a new red, white and blue quilt...so Blues Crossing will be it and Sparkler is the perfect 2 color quilt.

This book is available from your local quilt shop, Martingale, Amazon, or your favorite online shop. You aren't going to want to miss this one. Thanks so much Kim.

Make sure to leave me a comment on this post and I'll pick a winner on Monday...the winner will receive a copy of the book sent from Kim...you're going to love it!

P.S. I have no idea why Blogger has all these crazy spaces between everything in this post...I'm so sorry :(

I Got a Lot Done

I'm finally catching up, I think...finally getting a post with what I got done last week at our retreat. It's sure amazing how much can get done when there's no phone, no computer, no laundry, cooking, cleaning...really not anything but sewing, eating, talking, laughing and sewing more.

This is Moose on the Loose......Carrie Nelson designed this wonderful quilt and has the instructions on her blog. It was so much fun to do. Since I got home I added the other 3 piano key borders and the black outer border. I'll show it again when it's quilted.

I got this baby quilt done......lots and lots of 30's fabrics. Can't wait to get this one back from the quilter...I think something swirly would be fun.

Here's mom's birthday quilt...finished up the blocks and got the sashings on the blocks.......today I got the sashings done between the rows and got all the rows sewn together...tomorrow the borders go on....YIPPEE!

Hmmm,who is this quilter? She sure had FUN!

I'm Out!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

I'm thrilled to tell you that I'm leaving in 2 hours for a retreat with friends...we're going to a beach house....I'll be back Friday afternoon. Andy just looked at my stack of projects and asked if I planned on being gone until summer...well, we just don't want to run out of things to do! Andy and the boys are going to be in charge of things here at home...they'll be having some fun too!

See you all the end of the week!
