Challenge quilt

Ta challenge quilt top
Dont mind my limited space design floor
I do live in a mobile so not big and open

I just need to find my pieces for the 
Bottom row 
I have a funny feeling the missing pieces
Have an attachment to Dunkin
Just sayin.....

But this was a fun way to use
Up fabrics like this
The roller coaster fabric as Lisa calls it 
Yep gone............
If there is any left it will be tiny pieces for 
My granny project

This one I liked but I literally never
Buy pink so now it too has a home

My quilt inspectors were quick to 
Get to work......

Hmmm lets lift up this 
edge and check that seam
Yes i know the edges need to be trimmed 
Mr inspector 

And the other inspector
Was just as impressed at how quickly this quilt was 
I kinda wished now i had made it looks great in my bedroom with the gray walls
What have you sewn lately? 
I wanna see
Thanks ladies for playing along with me
Even though the pattern i chose had a few issues it still turned out great

See you our next adventure........
Thinking of slabbing again
With a twist.....
Always fun sewing with friends isnt it?

Quilt friends are the best

Remember I won on Barbara's blog on the star blog hop? arrived....
I am a lucky girl
Fat qtrs and pieces and 5 inch squares
A glove and even some trim

See how adorable?

Dunkin was jealous

He kept circling the pile as I tried to take pics

There  you can see all the goodies 

Fun fun

A card and glove too

Dunkin loved the trim until I told him pink was for girls

And got mad at me

So I teased him 

Look at that cute face

Again wanting to know why it wasnt for him

Here all stacked to see how much is there 

I guess he is not talking to me
Hee hee
Ok Dunks . I will make you something nice
Thanks Babs! 

Quilting friends are the best

through the years

OMG I was scrolling thru pics on the blog to delete old ones
and found these
my nieces were like 10
and I was making a quilt for my mother in law of her life
so the girls wanted to make one too
this is one ready to quilt.
I really need to get this done and gifted to her

each block represented something at the time in her life
this was Wings    her blue beta fish
yeah the one we had to buy 3 times cause he died
and we didn't want her to find out
but the last one we got had red in his colors and she
thought he was bleeding in the water...…..

and this was her name block

and a moose cause they saw one with Dad in Maine when they went on vacation

and they loved to ski with Uncle Joe

this was hamster   forgot his name LOL
but so so fun
they would tell me what they wanted on each block
I would draw it as best I could
they would pick fabrics an we would cut and sew them
they did zigzag around the edge for all of them
some are a little bumpy but all are fun

how fun would it be for them to have a quilt to give to their
future kids that they once made as a kid

this one is still waiting for me to handstitch

this was the inspiration quilt
after my mother in law passed away I got it back
it has a couple tears that need to be mended
and then I can give it to one of my kids

this block represents her 3 boys

Rich in cowboy hat and boots
one brother in baseball cap. Larry who died while going 
to a baseball game
and the third one who likes to gamble

Phoebe is not impressed with my story

Dunkin isn't either...…….FRESHIE

there are a couple of these somewhere too

but THIS is finished...…...and ready for Memorial Day  
July 4th and Labor Day each year
I love it

all hand quilted
and it came out great

some of these are cut and ready for reunion sewing

these are in the box awaiting some chapstick

so much to do so little time...……..
