Donna that Bargello quilt is beautiful.  Oh my goodness how many years did it take you to make it?  I'm sure your daughter just loves it.

I ordered fabric today from fabric.com.  Can't wait for it to get here.  Hope this posts none of my other responses tonight have.  Website is quirky tonight for sure.

Joyce - thank you - yes was a year BOM from Keepsake!  I am sure I would have done it otherwise but doing it one block a month was better - I did fall behind last year during the months when I couldn't do any sewing but during those months I did fuse the block pieces but didn't do the satin stitching - I did about 8 of those this January when I started feeling better to get caught up on all my BOMs... well I only had 2 but seemed like more...

Mamaghouse - I have ordered from fabric.com before and it usually gets to me within about 3 days.  Very nice  - you don't have to wait forever and that is nice.

mamagshouse:

SpringerMom that is so funny cause I have two German Shepherds that shed so badly I wish I could spin it into yarn.  I try my best to keep them out of my sewing room but their hair gets everywhere.  I sweep it up daily and there is still so much everyday.  Oh well I love them anyway.  Ty is the bigger one in the back & Sadie is the darker one laying with her head down.  She was a rescue who've we've had now for almost two months she is so very attached to me which has helped with depression.  So has this QCA group. I sent you a friend request. 

 

 

Mamag-- beautiful shepherds!  I'm looking at the photos in the background. Is that a quilt that you made? Can we see it?

Since I work 30 hours a week as a cook and server,  I am usually very tired so I only work on quilts on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesday,  With that schedule it took me about 6 weeks to do the bargello. 

I have only been quilting for 3 years but my very first quilt I ever made was a bargello,  the one that looks like a tear drop.  I titled it "A Clowns Tear".

Thank you all for the compliments on the bear quilt!  And Barbara, yes, it was one that had me smiling throughout the cutting, sewing, and quilting. I can't wait to see those precious babies when they arrive! Mom will certainly have her hands full. She has a three-year old little boy, too, with some developmental issues. He doesn't talk at all and has a lot of behavior problems. But she has lots of family near where she lives to help.

Carol from Pittsburgh:

I finished the baby quilt for the other twin girl cousin due in June. The first was the bunny Patch Pal quilt and the second is the bear Patch Pal. This one is quilted with lots of teddy bears.

Here's the back:

Carol - that Bear quilt is so adorable - I love your backing is it flannel?  

My Autumn Baltimore Album may look difficult but I think anyone can do them.  I remember when I was so scared to do applique' and that was needle turn - raw edge is a piece of cake compared to that.    I do love every part of quilting though... all kinds of quilts - only ones that I get the eebie jeebie's when I look at are those busy busy ones that you look at but can't find a place for your eyes to rest - with the blocks and sometimes the choice of fabrics... the craftsy bom this year is one of those... I love that fabric but not all in the same quilt - 

I do love your bear quilt - is it from the Quiltmaker quilts?  I have gotten their book with all those quilts in it as I have them on my list of quilts to make - I get their magazine just for those quilts... :)

Well I was able to make my (self imposed) deadline on my coworker's quilt. I ended putting it back on the frame with my Pfaff. I had to turn the quilt around after I got past the middle as there was too much bulk rolled up for the machine's throat space. I got done just after four this AM and got it washed and ready to take to work.

This coworker recently had brain surgery and I thought it would be nice to do this for him. Another coworker and her daughter helped with the piecing and everyone in the department wrote messages on it. I put it together and you know, as they say, "the rest of the story."

I got the layout from a Bonnie Hunter design but I use the Monkey Wrench/Shoo Fly instead of what she used in the the interest of time and my helpers' abilities.

I took advantage of the beautiful sunshine today for my photo shoot. Without further ado here it is:

 

I used flannel on the back; just one piece. I bought some new stencils and tried one on the red and white blocks:

What a nice thing to do for your co-worker, Kris.  It's beautiful and your new stencil is perfect for this quilt.

No Carol I didn't make the fleece blanket behind the dogs.  It was a Christmas present from my oldest daughter Victoria who lives in Virginia.  She had it made at Walmart from the photo shoot her, her husband Ian, and my grandbaby Ivy.  Walmart did a great job and I want to do one of my crochet quilts with photos of my Daddy (he passed away two years ago on his 71st birthday of a massive stroke that was caused by a heart test he had two days before) as a present for my mom who still lives in Florida.
