Spring is here and I love it. The weather is perfect, the flowers are blooming everywhere and the birds are singing. Sounds corny but I love springtime. I love floral fabrics too! I spent the day today with 9 of the greatest ladies from our quilt guild working on our next raffle quilt. Our next quilt show is a floral or garden theme. It is a lattice look quilt in blues and yellows in the pattern pictured below from Garden Twist Quilts. The fabrics are Moda Summer Breeze II fabrics. It is so cheerful I just love it!! Thanks to Mary, Marilyn, Mathilda, Carolyn, Bernadette, Theresa, Mary Ann, Gladys and Ann! We cut and pieced all the blocks today and it is ready to put together! This is going to be a queen/king size quilt. We started at 11am this morning and stopped about 3:30. Next week we will meet and put them all together. I am just amazed at what these ladies can do! Thank you THANK YOU!!!!
Below are pictures of the pattern we are using and the fabrics...I will post a picture as soon as it is together!
I am also very honored to be Chairman of our quilt show for March 2013 and will be doing a lot of work for that in the next months. This is a wonderful guild and I am very proud to be part of it!
As always, have a wonderful week! God Bless!!!!
Ok, it has been almost a month again, I am so sorry I am not getting in here like I should be. BUT here I am for a little while. Doing the repairs on the older quilts takes a while and a lot of concentration but it is great. Good news, the kids have bought a house, and are in the process of moving. Good news and bad news I guess, It is good we will get our house back but we will miss them too. BUT they are not moving far away, about 5 minutes to be exact, still in Shiner so they will be around all the time I am sure.
Things have slowed down on the quilt room since my son is working on their house. I start getting my Social Security next month since I turned 62 and will probably get some locals to help finish. Electric is next and I am getting an estimate this week. I will also be able to pick up my quilts from Yoakum Museum at the end of the month, beginning of May from the 2 month show they had. We have our Shiner Church Picnic coming up Memorial weekend which is right across the street from the house at the KC hall. ALWAYS a big turnout and a lot of fun. Lots of crafts and good food and a live auction. If you are in the area it is a great day out!!! They also play BINGO for 25 cents a card per game. Lots of fun. Games for the kids too!

Take care as always, GOD BLESS!!!!
