Can You Smell the Bread?

I just took the bread out of the oven. My BF says he's glad he's out of town or he'd eat himself sick. I doubt that but he really likes my bread.

"Cree Dreams"

I finally unsewed the last row of my quilting and got it re-quilted. Now I have to trim and bind. I'm going out of town for a couple of days so I'll finish it when I get back.

This is the first time I've used a groovy board so there was a learning curve. I think it turned out pretty good. I'm happy.

Mid-Valley Biennial Quilt Show

I had a chance to go to this quilt show Friday. What a great event. There were so many great quilts and vendors. I didn't buy any fabric but I took lots of pictures.

This one is called "Ocean Star" made and quilted by Barbara A.

And this one ..... is called " I'll See You After Sundown" made by Jeanne P. and quilted by
Barbara A.

Aren't they great?


In my last post I erred in speaking about the charity quilts. There is a group of women belonging to Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, an international organization founded in 1939-40 for women. One of their principles is service to the community. Each chapter has a special project or charity to commit time and resources to help make them successful. Eunice is one of the members and a contributor to Lullaby Quilts, an organization that makes quilts for the neonatal wards at St. Vincent's and Emmanual Legacy hospitals located in the Portland, OR area. They donate about 100 quilts a month to each of the hospitals.

Look What I Received

Look what Eunice gave me for quilting her charity quilt. What a great thank you. It's a book titled "The Quilt" by T. Davis Bunn, a great Water Lily Bath Confetti and a very nice thank you note. I can't wait to take a bath.
Thanks Eunice!

Bears in the Farmhouse - help with inspiration

Has anyone quilted their Bears in the Farmhouse quilt yet? I was wondering what everyone did. I need some inspiration.

I have no excuse for not being here. I have been busy the last couple of days quilting. I finally got my new rails and installed. What a relief! My machine is quilting like a dream. Here are a few pictures of some charity quilts I quilted for three gals who pieced them for Tuality Hospital. I think they will go to the premie unit. Ann B. did the first two.
The next one if from Eunice. I just love the chicken fabric.

The last two are from Barbara K.

I started quilting my string quilt but the rails were bad. I kept getting hiccups. I took Mary's suggestion that she uses for her string quilts. I bought a bishop fan groovy board. Now I have to unquilt the last row. Almost there.

All for now.
