Rolling Stone Round Robin

Finally, another UFO done! This quilt was started before 1997. That was before I started working full time and I met once a month with the Outlaws. My contribution was the center Rolling Stone mini-blocks (everything before the coral and yellow checkered border). It was added on by Diedre Garlock, Debbi Brunner, Karen Mirras and Rhonda Anderson. I remember Debbi did the circles in Japanese fabrics, but I don't remember who else did what. Last fall pulled it out and practiced my machine, free-motion quilting. It turned out pretty good. I've gotten some more hints from Diane Gaudynski's blog, so the next machine quilting should get even better.

Now I'm working on red, black and white checked chair covers for Katy's Chicago kitchen.

Till next time...... Happy Quilting

Arizona tragedy

Just a sad day. One of the victims of the Arizona shootings was Phyllis Schneck. She was a quilter. So sad. Read more about her here:

Brandon's Quilt

I can finally post a picture of the quilt my daughter made for her boyfriend for Christmas. She gave it to him Christmas Day so the cat's out of the bag. DD made nine patches out of 5" charm squares and appliqued cats on the bottom. I machine quilted it in strips, put on borders and bound it. It's a little larger than a twin bed size and I practiced many different machine quilting patterns. It came out pretty good. Now on to making my patterns for Ruth's Block Exchange.

Happy New Year and
Till next time....Happy Quilting.
