I finished up my gnomes!

I love my labels!

I make quilts and it’s tradition that you sign your work by making a label. I really don’t enjoy doing making label, so I had some made by the Dutch Label Shop back home in Philly!

I really like the results! I went basic this time, maybe I will go a bit fancier next round …

Frolic #2

I decided to do a second smaller Quiltville Frolic Mystery Quilt using batiks! Deep dark blue/blacks, blues, green, teal, raspberries.

Thanksgiving 2019

Thomas came home from college to visit us this holiday. Our dinner was a bit less traditional with Turkey Meatloaf for dinner due to my recent dental surgery. I got in some sewing time and started working on the new Quiltville Mystery Frolic! Last night, the doorbell rang and lo and behold it was my quilting friend Patsy caroling and bearing a gift of pumpkin spice cheesecake (she said, “it’s a soft food!”)

My Frolic patches in Cactus theme

I pulled colors for a second, smaller version of the quilt!

Flamingo Gothic

I managed to finish another UFO!

Gobble It Up

Turkey is ready!

Make It Work

My friend Kathy Goldberger’s husband challenged us to use mustache fabric in a quilt. Kathy and I both are fans of the show Project Runway, so I thought the mustaches would make perfect dress embellishments! Tim Gunn always said contestants had to “Make It Work” – so I did!
