Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

making some progress!

having the house to myself yesterday I got started on some quilting on my blue and white quilt.  Unfortunately, I didn't like my first choice in thread colour so 20 minutes of quilting resulted in close to three hours of ripping!  Blech!  But I persevered, and am quite happy with how it's going so far

this design is from a Patsy Thompson quilting stencil and I thoroughly enjoyed using it.  Definitely go check out her site.  I love her DVDs and now I can add her stencils to my list as well!
I have finished the quilting on my scrappy stars, just need to trim and bind and dare I say it will be my first finish of 2011???!!!

Happy quilting!

Your quilting is always so lovely, and the blue and white is no exception. That design is beautiful! What a great job! The scrappy stars quilt is wonderful too. Will you post some more pics of it?

Quilting looks great - on both. A good start to the year.
