Mitered Blankets....

I have had this on my to do list for quite awhile and finally I did it!!     I saw this youtube video called magic binding blankets.   If you have been wanting to make a mitered blanket, this is a very easy way to do it.  I used Jennifer Paganelli's Crazy Love for both sides.  I did not put anything in the middle, just plain cotton making it very light weight.   A perfect summer blanket!  I think I might make a larger one for myself.

My oldest is done with High School......

My youngest son Jonathan is  on the far left, then there's Zack who will be Daniel's suite mate in college,  Dad, myself and of course Daniel!

Proud Mama!
Now on to college!    I'm so proud of him, and just wanted to share a few  photos.   I am completely consumed with graduations, parties and such.   There was a Disneyland trip, a Senior lunch, this boy loves to party!!!  Lot's of fun, but I have to say I am really missing my sewing machine!    Next week I hope to be humming away.  I have so many ideas and projects.  But for now, let's party on!!!!

Feeling Ruffly Today!

I love to not really have a plan when I make a quilt!  Not the BEST way to make a quilt, but in my opinion the FUN way!!  I do follow patterns quite often, but sometimes I just need to cut loose!  sometimes it really doesn't work too well, but occasionally it does.  I really love this quilt!  I used some of Jennifer Paganelli's fabric, along with Heather Bailey's Pop Garden, which is featured in the middle.    Her Nicey Jane is the ruffle.   It is such a lovely day today.  We had rain last night, and today it smells wonderful!!  I'm from Arizona, so when it rains, we rejoice!!!!!

Three Quilts for Karen

 I have a customer that occasionally will order a set of three quilts from me.  She always wants Amy Butler Love.   I love doing these for her, because they are easy to complete.   She wants simple quilted lines, and I get to choose where to put each fabric!  I have been thinking though I need to get her onto a different fabric than Amy Butler's Love.  I love that fabric, but just like every fabric designed it  will eventually be discontinued, and hard to find.   Maybe I can get her interested in some Crazy Love???


My next project!!
