Happy 4th!

Finally some time to get caught up! I've been busy sewing, just not blogging. Here are some recent projects.

Welcome 2012

I start the year with a trivia quilt. Red, white, and blue fabrics were cut and fussy cut to hide the answers to American history questions. It will be auctioned off in March to benefit an educational foundation.

Where did the time go?

I missed January. I missed February. Hello March.

A special Christmas present for Eunzoo. I have never met her, but her daughter says she is a survivor. She has just beaten back breast cancer for the second time. I had fun with the ferns on the border. She has no idea this is coming her way. Can't wait to hear about her reaction.

Rain, Rain, Stay

Rusty here making a post for mom. She is upstairs making another quilt. When it rains around here, it really rains. The only good thing is that the neighbor's slobber hounds are in the house and not barking. Mom is keeping her eye on a big ol'pine tree on the slope. It seems to be leaning towards our house. The power men have parked all the trucks in front of our house, ready to go help cats all over town. We feel safe with them here. Yesterday we baked them cookies. Two more days of the heat up high, quilts for me to sleep on all over the house (I pretended to be really cold), and mommy stuck at home. I think I like rain.

Outside the Box Thanks to Tonya

I made this quilt from students drawings and added our town name. I sat at the sewing machine with my lap top at Tonya's website. I was super proud of this, especially the tilde over the 'n'. Congratulations Tonya! Can't wait to get the book.

Yankees Quilt for Lisa

After I had started this quilt for Lisa, her friend, my sister-in-law Patty, said, "How about a Yankees' quilt!" Well, this is about as far from Yankees as it gets. I hope it brings a hug from California to Lisa. And who knows, maybe the Yankees would consider new uniforms in turquoise and hot pink. The quilt was made with a layer cake.
