First Block for Swoon 2013 and a finish!

Here is my first Swoon block!

So it's not perfect. I still need to square it up but I don't think it's too bad for my first one. :)

Here is a finish.  This quilt was made with my scraps by a friend of Charisma's.  Charisma then quilted for me.  I finally got the binding done. :)  One more to bind.

The weather has been weird here lately.  I felt like we were living in London or Seattle with all the rain we were having.  It is a beautiful day today though.  I was able to finish my Swoon block this morning so I can get outside this afternoon.

Have a Blessed week!

Swoon 2013 and a finish

Here is the fabric I will be using for my Swoon blocks.  It's Lark by Amy Butler.

I have also finished a quilt from two years ago.  The pattern is Yellow Brick Road and my dear friend Charisma quilted it for me.  The fabric was my first purchase from my local quilt store-The Quilter's Compass.  It was actually from the owners stash so I don't know the designer.  So happy this is finished!

Because I have actually finished some things I get to start something new! Cannot wait to cut out my fabric for the Swoon quilt.  I just need to get the 4 1/2 yards of white and the backing.  

Stay tuned for more finishes.  I have two quilts that Charisma made with my scraps that I am almost done binding. :)

Tomorrow is my sister's birthday.  We will be going to Summerfest in Milwaukee on Thursday for my son's first concert.  We will be seeing the band Fun. I can't wait!  Hope to get some sewing in over the weekend.



I have wanted to do this pattern for a while now.  I am going to use my Amy Butler fabric.  Pictures to come.  Won't you play along???

Where did May go?

Busy is the term for the month.  Last month was my birthday and we did a little celebrating. :)  Since my birthday is on the 5th of May we decided to celebrate Cinco de mayo.  I love super hero movies.  We saw Ironman 3 then visited our favorite mexican restaurant.  Here are my son, sister and I.

I have been trying to finish some things and as promised I have a picture of my latest finish.  This is the lap size rag quilt that I made for my friend Penny.

I'm going to take a little break and do some closet cleaning.  But I am really excited to finish some other great things.

Thanks for stopping by.
