Still here

Wow, its been awhile since I checked in. I have been keeping busy with a memory quilt for a friend and then did a chemo quilt.

Last week I went to our vacation home because we were supposed to get carpet installed. Well you know what they say about the best laid plans. I ended up having to rent a nail gun to finish what dh had started.
The carpet was put on hold until tomorrow. I was able to work on two bom's.

My lqs is doing a bom and I saw the samples of the blocks and the color schemes they were offering as well as announcing a mystery. I wasn't so interested in doing the mystery so I chose the Christmas color scheme. I must say I like it.  Wonder if I will keep this one or not. It took me about two days to catch up. This is definitely my speed. Here are my blocks:  This is block one.

this is block 2

and number 3

and number 4 for April.

There are 8 big blocks like these and then some small stars and other small accents. It is called "Simply Adventurous block of the month" for those interested in doing this. I got it from BJ's Quilts in Bend, OR. They do mail each months fabrics for a $5 fee and $25 sign up cost. Their other color scheme is jewel tones. They were very pretty.

I am still working on the quilt for my ds and dil. Since they moved into their own place they ended up with a smaller bed.  Which is good for me. I may have enough blocks done already and only need to start piecing them together. Hopefully I can get it finished before their first anniversary. Hard to believe they have been married for almost a year. Time sure does fly! Unless you are helping with homework.

M is only in first grade and I already dread the rest of her school career. There is a reason I am not a teacher. I don't have the patience for it. But she is a fast learner so it shouldn't be too bad.

  1. I love those blocks ... hard to tell which one is my most favorite of the 4. I can't wait to see the finished quilt.
