Just One Star

Several ladies came over yesterday to make quilt blocks for the Quilts of Valor project. Today I'm mailing eight of them off. This is sponsored by Moda fabrics.

Tulip Purse

Made a tulip purse with some really pretty, subtle fabric I bought on the last Quilt Shop Hop. Definitely will make another.

Natalie's Jungle Quilt

I started a quilt in Susan's Lifetime Learning Class, using the book Nine Patch Pizzaz.
My intention was to do a wall hanging for Natalie, but she just redid her bedroom in black and white and pink and it would not go well.
So I'm redoing it as a lap quilt. Found great border and backing fabric during the Bluebonnet Shop Hop. Now I'm quilting it. Lots of rounded edges and leaves, using a yellow to orange veriegated thread.

David found Beaujolais in the shrubbery of my home in June of 1992. He took her in, fed her with a bottle, taught her to use her litter box, loved her and endured her for over 18 years. She was recently diagnosed with cancer and will not be with us for very long.
She was a frustrating cat. Sometimes sweet, sometimes downright mean. But I loved her too. And will miss her.
