Happy Valentine's Day

Made this little Valentine quilt years ago for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative.  It was one of my favorites.  I enjoy combining machine quilting with hand quilting and this little quilt has plenty of both.  Hope you all have a wonderful day and as always Happy Quilting!

Making Progress

Patchwork Pup is almost complete.  He has a friend or maybe not??  This little mini has been so fun to make.  My favorite thing to do is combine machine and hand stitches, Patchwork Pup has both. 

Patchwork Pup is all about whimsy and I hope it will being a smile when complete.  Check out the great quilts at Off the Wall and have a wonderful weekend.  Happy Quilting!

Vintage Prayer Flag

Completed a Prayer Flag this morning.  It will be in the mail today.  I'm calling it Vintage because of the fabrics.  Every piece of this flag is over 25 years old.  That's what I love about a collection of fabrics. Most of my fabrics and trims-- I would say, 99% of my fabrics and trims come from yard sales, auctions and antique shops.  The old textiles are filled with memories and the trims are wonderful for a little bling during a time that might be a little grim.  Have a wonderful Thursday and Happy Quilting!

Sunday---Precious Promises

You, Lord, give perfect peace
to those who keep their purpose firm
and put their trust in you.
Trust in the Lord forever;
he will always protect us.

Sunday---Precious Promises

It is through faith that all of you are God's sons in union with Christ Jesus. 
You were baptized into union with Christ, and now you are clothed, so to speak, with the life
of Christ himself. 
So there is no difference between Jews, and Gentiles,
between slaves and free men,
between men and women;
you are all one in union with Christ Jesus.  
Galatians 3:26-28, Good News Bible

It's Good To Be Back

It's so good to be back on line.  I had a computer crash :(  It is funny how much we depend on our electronics.  Not sure if that is good or bad.  I lost a few things with the crash, but nothing that can not be recovered with the "little bit" of backup that I did through the years.  Hope everyone is warm and enjoying the winter weather--we have finally had a break from the awful temps.  Those of you who are in the middle of the cold and snow as I type--stay safe.  Spring will be here soon. 
Happy Quilting everyone!

Sunday---Precious Promises

If you forgive others the wrongs they have done to you,
your Father in heaven will also forgive you.
But if you do not forgive others,
 then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.

Patchwork Pup

I started this little Patchwork Pup a few years ago and he keeps progressing.  With the help of the sun and some rusty metals, I dyed muslin.  Then turned it into a nine-patch block.  From there I added as the center a smaller nine-patch block.  This little block created his body.  A little applique and embroidery created his face.  I've added a blue bandanna and now I'm adding stitches.  He is a slow cloth and I'm not sure where this is going to go, but Patchwork Pup is in the works. Linking up to Off the Wall and wishing everyone a Very Happy New Year and Happy Quilting in 2018.

Another Prayer Flag

This little Prayer Flag is in the mail to a church friend who is undergoing aggressive treatments for cancer.  She has a very positive attitude and I hope this little flag helps to give her the strength she needs for this long battle.
  Happy Quilting!
