Good Bye, Mom

The Lord called my mom to be with him last night.

"Heavenly Father, give us the strength we need."

Spring Break

What a great feeling!

I spent last week working on the sashing for this quilt . . .

I finished it late Saturday evening and spent Sunday afternoon putting the borders on. I was even able to get it sandwiched and ready to go.

So today, I plan to clean house (a little bit) and then begin quilting.  I haven't cooked in awhile, so I would really like to find something good and different to cook for dinner tonight.

I'm heading over to Patchwork Times to see what everyone is working on this week.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.

Finished Double Wedding Ring Quilt

Spent most of the afternoon putting the binding on. I probably should have hand sewn it, but I do not have the patience. It took me forever to get the quilt squared up. Not sure if it is now, but it seems to be pretty close. I didn't really have anything to measure by to get it squared.

I love the way the back looks. I would really like to do a white or ivory whole quilt with only quilting. But, I don't have a clue how to start. Do any of you know of anyone who has blogged about creating a design for one?

My thought is that I could make a huge one that fits my king sized bed with hangover and then just use my other quilts on top without making a lot of huge quilts. Does that make sense at all?

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.

Well, it is all quilted now.

I think I will go with the green I used for the vines for the binding.

Tomorrow's job--square it up and add the binding.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
