Grand Staff Cardigan

I've been working on the Grand Staff Cardigan on Tuesdays.

 

It is s actually starting to look like a back.  Just a few more inches and I can start on the front.

Kaleidoscope Quilt 

Here's an oldie, but a really significant quilt.  As usual, it's been laying around for years and years.  My dear friend Betty and I took this class.  In the class with us were Kim and Brigitte.  They were in the same quilt guild, but I didn't know them as well as Betty.  Well, by the end of the class we were all best friends, and still are. 

 Brigitte forgot part of her sewing machine - the foot pedal if I remember correctly - and she was able to drive home, get it, and get back before the class started.  Somehow I lost one of the sections of my quilt during the class.  Never did find it.  I also unfolded a piece of fabric I brought for the class and found I quilt I had completely forgotten about.  We were quite the group and we have done so much together after that class.

Oh, here's a picture of the quilt and the quilting.

 

It's ready to be trimmed up and I need to make the binding.   This is one of those quilts I will keep forever.  Every time I look at it I will think of Betty, Brigitte, and Kim.

Kaffe Quilt

I see I have been neglecting posting about the Kaffe Quilt.  I have been sewing block sections and sticking them up on the wall in no particular order.  

 

I think I have about 20 more to make and then I will start the smaller squares and getting them added to the bigger squares.   That doesn't make a lot of sense, but it will later.

I found this tiny little guy in one of my hanging flower baskets.

Please grow big and eat lots of mosquitoes.

Shamrock Garden

I have started a new section on Shamrock Garden.

 

A small start on this quadrant, but it's a start.
