Twilight


It's been a while since I've posted something quilty here. Summer has been busy with each day passing at warp speed! I had to find time for stitching up this cute runner which is made up of Christmas fabrics by 3 Sisters ~ the raspberries and cool summery greens have it feeling more like late summer.

Twilight is a Little Scraps from This & That design by Sherri K. Falls of Minnesota. The fabric is 3 Sisters ~ Peace on Earth for Christmas. All a terrific gift from Carol at Carol's Crafty Creations. Thanks Carol!

A binding Tutorial at ~ Trends and Traditions ~ helped with binding those inside corners. Thanks Heather!

Hope life is treating you well.

Happy Fourth of July!

Made a little something to celebrate Independence Day ~ an especially special day this year and the pillow looks good on the front porch rocker! I used some pre~tea dyed muslin for the border...love that fabric! I gave that grungy old rocker a fresh coat of paint, too.

I found the flag panel that I used in this pillow at the Minnesota Quilters Show and Conference (Duluth) last month.

This quilt was on display at the show ~ All carefully pieced for a pretty good likeness of our President Obama. I like the borders that she used, her choices resulted in a festive looking quilt.

Happy 4th of July to all who celebrate!!!
