The word for the year is Love

 It's eight kinds of LOVE!  I could not have had more fun making them.

Summer quilts

It's August in Texas.  Which means it's 102 and not a breeze to be found anywhere.  A good day to wash a couple quilts and lay them in the grass to dry.  These were dry in less than 30 min.

And of course I'm still plugging away at these blue rings.  They sure do make me happy!

Happy summer quilting!

A New Quilt Started

I had to make one.....I love the DS Single Girl quilts.  I rarely do anyone else's patterns.  I like doing my own thing.  And while I am using her block, I felt the way it was done was way too fussy.  And because I have been making quilts for more than 10 yrs (I'm not sure how that happened so fast.) I decided to make this my own way. 

 So I made a freezer paper template.

I really wanted mine more scrappy and this is a very good way to use up smallish scraps.

Beauty of a Pieced Heart

The beauty of this pieced heart is very much an example of art imitating life.  None of us gets out of this life without heartbreak and disappointments.  However, putting yourself back together and finding a way to be happy is what makes us beautiful, interesting and one of a kind. 

This little piece is made with odds and ends and finished up with a little hand work.  It makes me smile just looking at it!

Thank you for bearing with my sentimentality today and I hope each of you can find a way to make something beautiful out of any odds and ends you happen to have laying around.....   ;)

Happy Sewing!

Hearts on the Brain

I have had hearts on the brain lately.  That is all I've managed to work on it seems.

I love the hand work on this one.

 Still have more hand work to add to this pieced heart.

And of course the close up so you can see the quilting.

It is a dreary and cold Monday......the perfect sewing weather.

Happy Quilting!
