Hi, boy the time is passing. Jenn starts grade 12 on Tues. Aug. 31. Another year and her last in high school.
The picture here is a runner I made for a coworker that got married this weekend. The shower was some time ago, while it July, it seems a long time ago. I used the left over hst's from another project and made my own design with them. I kind of liked it and wasn't sure if I wanted to give it away but I didn't have time to make anything else for her so she got it.
I'm starting to pack up stuff for my son to move into residence next Sunday. That will be an experience for him. It will be different only have one kid home most of the time. I got 4 more blocks quilted for the quilt that I am making for my dad.
That's for row 2 and now I only have 3 more rows to go. The blocks are about 16 inches so 4 across covers our queensized bed.
I'm making a rag quilt with picture flannel on the back and birds in flight and trees on the front.
Hope it turns out okay. I need to have it done soon. He is undergoing radiation and chemo for cancer of the esphagous.
Should already be done but it's taking me longer then I figured.
Happy quilting everyone.

I've been wasting time this morning. Had to go pick up my daughter from a friends and then I sorted through some nursing education stuff and rest of time I have been online. I really need to get some more work and or sewing done.
Picture is from a quilt show I went to this summer at Lorraine Stagness's. I really liked these butterflies.
Happy quilting.

This block is from the birthday block exchange that I am in. Can't remember who it was for but it is done and mailed away.
Just picked up my daughter from a summer away with the junior forest rangers. She had a great time. The work in our national parks and live with 6 other crew members plus a supervisor. They had competions at the last day. It was great to see some of the things they learned to do.
Hard to believe that summer is almost over. Hope everyone out there is having a good summer.
I am working on a flannel backed rag quilt for my dad. He is undergoing chemo and radiation for esphagus cancer. He is about half way done. Not a lot of fun. The flannel I choice has wild life animals on it in blocks. I am shadowing each block and making it bigger and then I will put the 12in square together. It's getting there. I have the first 4 blocks quilted and together and another 10 ready to sandwich as blocks. Hope he likes it when it is done.
Happy quilting to all

So this is the quilt I made for my hubby's nephew. He got married in May in Hawaii and had the after party last week.
I bought the fabric when we went to Hawaii a few years ago. It was a really simple way to do the quilt but I like it. I have enough fabric left I think to make on for us. So I'm happy with that. Won't be able to start it for awhile. I'm thinking it might be a good gift for our 25th anniversary and that's a few years from now so I have time.

Happy quilting everyone.
