On my Design Wall

I'm working on this little baby quilt for the childrens hospital silent auction.
I just need to sew on the top and bottom border and it will be ready for quilting.

Everytime I look at it, it makes me smile. I think the frog is my favorite.

I'm looking forward to quilting this one, should be tons of fun.

I'll post another picture of it when its all quilted and bound, hopefully in the next few weeks, assuming I remember to update my blog lol

homespun blocks for heartstrings

I'm not a fan of homespuns, so when the heartstrings group made this their new project I didnt think I would prolly participate.
But, a friend had given me a bag of fabrics and in it were a few homespuns but they had been cut into squares already. I wasn't able to get a lot of longer length strips from them but made as many blocks as I could.

These are being sent to Sue who will add them to other peoples blocks to make donation quilts.

Bright and Happy

I made this lil wallhanging from a free pattern at All People Quilt.
Part way thru I began to wonder if I'd lost my mind...soooo much applique!! tracing and cutting out all those bits...yikes.

Still, its so bright and cheery I do like it, I just freehand, no plan quilted it and that was fun.

Eight Year Old UFO

yup, really. not only that, all it needed was trimming and binding! but, somehow over that time I stopped liking the quilt. I don't like the colours or all the flowers, so I guess I just really dislike the fabrics, I like the overall pattern and I like the embroidered pansies and butterflies I did way back then, just not the fabric, which heck is the biggest part lol

I quilted this before I had a longarm, its freehand something but I'm not really sure what exactly =)

Anyway, its done, I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, I thought about donating it but really I dislike donating anything I myself don't like so I have a feeling this may end up in the trash.
