Catching Up

My New Year’s resolution is to complete my UFOs (unfinished objects) around my house. I love to pick out fabrics, piece quilts, and even put on the binding but for some reason when it comes time to do the actual quilting I put it off. It is not as though I do hand quilting, I invested in a long arm machine a couple of years ago, but for some reason I let quilt tops pile up until I get embarrassed and then do them. Unless they are quilts for someone else, then I get them done as quickly as possible.

This is my Basket of Flowers quilt that I pieced months ago. Finally finished! It will be used for a table topper for a large square table.

This baby quilt is a simple rail fence with sashings. It will be donated to our local women and children’s center. I am pleased with the bright colors and I hope it makes a little one happy.

I have another quilt on my long arm now and I will post it later….just trying to keep those resolutions.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.
