Christmas gifts


a while back someone had a huge sale on panels
and some I got for under 5 bucks
so now I want to use them up
love this lighthouse one



so pulled some scraps and will make some
easy blocks to add to it
and make it larger

maybe some sailboat blocks?
we will see 



also found this beachy one
with fish


and pulled more to go with it



see ? how fun is that?

having fun in the stash.
isnt that why we buy it?

I kept the fishy one out and played some more
WHAT IF???
what if I made some slab blocks in sand and water colors?
and what if I used them for a border around the panel?




hmmm I LIKE it.........
so I continued......

]

I think Dunks likes it too!  or the fishies anyway LOL

I need to find more sandy colors and get the blocks a little 
bigger
I figure maybe 10 inch blocks   
will see once I measure the panel



I really like how it picks up the colors in the panel
and yet frames it too



no Dunks
you are NOT having tuna for lunch! LOL

Are you slabbing?
are you thinking of Christmas yet?
I have a long list again....... will I ever learn? ha ha

yeah lapquilts and reading pillows
and a few other things are on the to do list

(I KNOW Colette.....the DEER is on the list!
I wont tell you WHAT list though HA HA)


  what are YOU making?

better late than never..........


while my computer and email was down
I received some fun mail from a lot of my friends

Babs from wont-to-bequilter. sent me some scraps
I have already trimmed them down into
useable parts

some squares, some strips
some log cabin strips........






Jacky also sent me some scraps
(after I arm wrestled them from her when I 
picked them from her trash........she can 
wrestle pretty good! )LOL

I swear she doesnt use anything smaller
than a fat quarter! ha ha 


also got some pretties from JulieRose
and some from Colette too!
those are going into my granddaughters pink and purple quilt
it is coming along nicely and I am hoping soon to 
make it into a top

 LOVE LOVE LOVE my quilting friends and am so so thankful
for them all.........
wish we all lived closer.......
we could be DANGEROUS all in the same town LOL



I cut a few more red centers 3 1/2 for my log cabins



and more 3 1/2 and 2 1/2 inch squares were put 
into the stash bin as well.......

fun fun fun 

and THANKS SO MUCH LADIES
YOU ALL MEAN MORE TO ME 
THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW........

ALL THIS SLABBING GOT ME BUSY AGAIN


I was so so excited and riding high on my slabs
that I got up and started slabbing this morning
and look what I got done
a green one and an orange one.........



two multicolor ones
with cute little deer peeking out




a green and red one with some coyotes circling


and a new squirrel........
Yeah I KNOW.......
I pulled red and greens and Christmas
and will make 10 inch Christmas blocks
to make a nice Christmas lap top quilt
I am thinking of bordering these in maybe a white
2 1/2 inch strip
we will see..........

but another productive day for sure......

Are you slabbing???

Happy blocks for sure
Thanks Rosemary for joining us! and

These two came from julierosequilts

one with some fun stacking dolls
and 
everything's betta with chedda  for the other one.

I have loved getting squishy mail 

Jeanna is on vacation so will give her time
to get our slabs then will decide how I will
