Finally I quilted it

I finally got my scratch quilt quilted. I can't wait to use it this summer - it is perfect for summer. I just love the little letters on the background fabric. Oh darn, I forgot to take a pic of the fun back on this quilt. Well I"ll have to do it later.

And here is a second peek at "THE" Wedding Quilt. And no - this still isn't the design! It is a secret - and Holly checks in, so I can't show you what it will look like. Oh by the way, she is paniced that the red below looks pink. Adam gave me strict instructions - NO PINK! I've assured her - it is just how it looks in the picture. It is a red and white design fabric, but I needed it to end up looking lighter than a solid red I"m puttin in it elsewhere.

The days are just flying by!

Yup, they are flying by - in more ways than one. I finished another small quilt this weekend and just got a chance to share it with you. So, not only did time fly by and I didn't share this until tonight, but it is my mom's spring wall hanging for her door - I know, it has been spring for awhile now - a little late. But it turned out so cute! All from stash!

Hail, Hail - the quilt is started!

Yup, had hail today! But by the time I got my camera and a new battery the rain was melting it already. But for a bit it was crazy outside! I did get this shot in the grass before it had all melted and the one under the evergreens.

And while the weather was crazy outside I started "THE Wedding Quilt"! My oldest is getting married in October and I figured I had best get started on the quilt! She helped me pick out the fabrics, but has no clue what the design is. And showing you this first set of blocks will not in any way give it away!

Only 6 more months now! OMG! I had better get dress shopping! I keep telling her I'm wearing shorts and a tshirt! At this rate I may really have to!

And now a short Break

Amy of Park City Girl has organized an online Quilt Festival! Her idea is for us to share a favorite quilt and give the story behind it and then link to Mr. Linky on her blog. There are already a large list of bloggers linked in hopes of winning a prize from the generous sponsors! What a perfect way to spend a cold rainy dreary day!

And here is my favorite quilt. It is the quilt I used as a girl on my bed from Aunt Mary. I've blogged about this quilt before. But even as a young girl I had to have this quilt on my bed, even though it was old and worn, and even if it was summer I wanted this quilt. I think my love for this quilt is what made me want to learn how to quilt. Aunt Mary was the only person in our family who knew how to quilt, but by the time I got old enough to learn she had died (she was really my great aunt so much older).

Look at the awesome fabrics. This quilt is most certainly my favorite for all the memories and love it holds for me.
