Good News

Just a quick post tonight. Good news, one of the LQS is carrying my pattern now. They bought six copies today. I might try to make up a quilt for them if I can find the time. Bought my jelly roll for my new pattern, can't wait to work on that. But I still have to finish my challenge blocks, only have 2 of the 11 done. Gentry also keeps asking about how I'm doing on his quilt, which is still on paper. Maybe I'll have time tomorrow to get a lot of sewing done.

Hailey's 9th Quilt

Here are some pictures of Hailey with her latest birthday quilt. She looks so little in comparison to it. I'll try to get a picture of it full and flat later on. The top is identical to the bottom with the 9 fan blade blocks in the middle.

Spent a great deal of time last night working on a new pattern. This one is for those sweet jelly rolls. Sadly, I have yet to purchase any. I guess I'll have to do that for research. ;-)

I am starting this holiday season off with a quilty day. Or at least that is my plan. We'll see how well my family cooperates.

My first job is to make a couple of blocks for my the challenge quilt. It is a Women's Issues Challenge Quilt.

After that I have to start cutting 2 1/2" squares for Gentry's quilt. I need Somewhere between 330 and 400. I bought all of the fabric for it last night. At least, I think I did.

If time allows, I'd like to make a computer mock up of that new pattern I was sketching out last night.

Long time, no see...

Yes, I'm referring to myself. Sorry for being gone so long. I could offer all the reasons for my delay in posting, but no reason to bore you or bother you with issues already resolved. So, let's just say I'm back again. :)

I finished my daughter's quilt just in time for her birthday in April. I'll post a pic next time.

I also finished my quilt and have the pattern ready for sell. I've sold several patterns the last few days and am excited that someone would appreciate my work. Here is a picture...

It is called Sassy Sixteen. It is 54" x 66" and is made from 16 FQs. I'm taking orders by receiving email addresses and then sending invoices/receiving payment through Paypal. I will eventually send the pattern to online vendors and/or have my own site. But until then this will have to do. I'm taking the pattern to the LQS this weekend...wish me luck!

Now, I'm working on blocks for a Women's Issues Challenge Quilt. I'm also getting started on my son's bday quilt. Too many quilts, so little time. LOL!
