Too Much Fun

Sometimes it is way too much fun creating an infant's quilt.
Arthur arrived just as I was finishing the last few inches of binding on this quilt.  I will embroider his name on it, and wait for an opportunity to visit a new baby :))

Arthur's parents have a SharpPei.  Now they also have Arthur.
What fun.

Best wishes to Arthur N. R. for a terrific future, may all the  creatures in your future   be friendly.

Happy Sunday

I am enjoying working with single shape scrap quilts.
This one was completed at the end of 2016
 I call this one Four Squared.
 It has 4 inch squares, 4 inch borders measures 92 x10

details of Four Squared

Triangle Delight as the name suggests is triangles, two sewn together makes a 2.5 in. square.  Not completely random, neutral plus colour to create pinwheel.

Triangle Delight  78 x 92

Details of quilting Triangle Delight.
I will be returning this one to the long arm for some additional quilting. There
are several spots that look too puffy. Come back for a look.

Achoo How did the blog get this dusty?
I am not dusty, not at all.
I am still quilting, still enjoying the process.  Recording my (mostly) quilting journey has taken a back seat to other interests and life happenings. So, what has happened? Plenty lots!

I am Grandmother again, to a lad. Also mother-in-law again, son number 2 tied it up last fall..
The impact of these events are, well,  significant.
But for all that quilting continues.
I am presently blogging on a new computer and am stumbling around in the files looking for pictures. wondering what to transfer and where to transfer it.   It has been a while since doing these actions and I have forgot a bunch.
I took on a t shirt project a few months ago. These  are sporting event shirts dating from the late 1980s and most of the 1990s.

Also sweat shirt quilts...

There are still approximately 20 t shirts left, the plan has been changed to make two smaller quilts instead of a third large quilt.
coming soon.
