This is a signature quilt that someone dropped off for me to quilt.  Really easy to do because she only wanted it stippled, nothing else.  GREAT, I can do that.

It's been horribly hot here in KC.  Yesterday I had the brilliant idea to take Grace and 2 other girls to see Big Time Rush at Worlds of Fun.  Not a good idea on my part.  107 degrees and no shade.  $5 for water which in mind was extortion at it's worst.

Hopefully this week I can get back to sewing and cooler weather type activities.

My Other Blog

I'm going to try to get better at putting my embroidery stuff on my embroidery blog.

I've been busy lately working on embroidery stuff.  I'm hoping to post some pictures that are quilt related tomorrow.

In the meantime, you can go check out my other blog here.

I went to the quilt shop yesterday at lunch just to look around and take a break from the BS that is work. Anyhow, I found some new fabric and pulled it out to look at the label. $11.49/yd. I literally shook my head and looked again thinking my eyes were playing tricks on me. OH NO! What am I going to do? Eat or make quilts, cloth my child or make quilts? I guess I could cloth my child in a quilt. I was starting to feel like a hoarder before when it came to scraps. I know the sight of $11.49/yard is going to send me over the edge and cause damage to my already damaged brain. I know I read the prices were going up. That's INSANE.

I finished up the pink and grey quilt top this long weekend. The fabric line is Urban Angel. I really wish I would have bought more. Reminds me of biker chics.

I was also asked to make golf towels for a 60th birthday party. I made 21 towels for party guests.  Got hubs involved too and had him help me put grommets on all of the towels.

On top of that I also took in bags from 31 consultants that needed embroidery work.  Those are way too hard to take pictures of.

All in all a good weekend.  This morning was the Annual Popsicle parade through the neighborhood.  The fire department came and hooked up to a hydrant right by our pool and let the kids have some fun.





Happy 4th of July!!!

So to ease my frustration last night, I put my blocks on the design wall. This quilt will be good sized when it's sewn together.

Jaybird Quilts, Unwind. Using the Lazy Angle Ruler.

I'm pretty darn pleased with myself.
