Check out this beautiful new Block of the Month. I just love the colors of the fabric called "Green Peace" which is of course by Moda. This is way too much applique for me, but it is beautiful!

What about this one - now, I'm in love with this BOM - It's called "Dancing with the Stars". This one really tempts me!

More pics come soon... as I continue my "Adventures in Quilting!"

Baby Boom

I have been quilting for a while and suddenly finished up several quilts, which felt extremely good.... Here's the latest I have been working on.....

These are called "Stars are Born" - they are quilts made my new identical great nephews.... I'll post pics of the babies soon. Their names are Mike & Tommy. Mike weighs 2.5 lbs & Tommy weight 1.5 lbs. They are both doing absolutely incredible! God is SO good!

The quilt below is a Block of the Month that I have worked on for over a year. I did some extensive quilting on it - it was certainly a challenge quilt, but I am proud to be hanging it on my living room wall.

I will post a finished picture soon - when it is hanging on the living room wall - the quilting work just came out gorgeous - if I must say so myself... here's a preview:

The finished pic will come soon.... cause I'm buying the rod this weekend!! It's finished & I really want to say "It is done!" This pattern was awesome and is available from Debbie Mumm online in the project archives. Just fell in love with this one!

Lastly, another baby quilt that is only lacking the binding, which is made, just needs to be sewed on. Thought I 'd have that done by now, but life being what it is .... I spent the middle of my day entertaining my great niece so that I could give the mom's of the twins a break... (the babies won't come home till late October, but mom is healing).... it was fun!

This quilt was fun & easy.... is called Baby Pinwheels. I just love the Prarie Points inner border! The pattern for this one can be found at

There will be more to come. My next project is to complete my 2009 BOM called Foolish Goose Tracks.... only the outer pieced border left to do - it will get quilting in November when my studio is complete.
