Now I Understand what the Fuss is About!

I found this beauty at a garage sale last summer and tried it out to make sure it worked, however, with my sewing machine in the shop I have been sewing all week on this... so smooth and nice.  The only thing I miss is the thread cutter, is there such a thing as a stick on thread cutter, if not I may invent it.  Haha.

And while I dropped the machine off, I looked for some yellow fabrics... only not so much yellow.


Have been watching what I eat and have decided cake is my favorite food... hmm maybe that is a problem?

Love Words!

Fell head over heels in love with this one... 6 yards!

Scrappy Goodness!

Working on binding this scrappy "Piece" quilt this morning... binding done, squared up and ready to go.

Pieced Back :)

You'd think my scrap pile would've dwindled...

Good to be home for a weekend full of stitching.

Year of the T-Shirt Quilt

I've made a bunch of t-shirt quilts this year for sure, this one for a fundraiser supporting the Reno Ballers basketball team at the Truckee Meadows Boys and Girls Club... I couldn't say NO as my husband is the coach!! 

Appropriately, a basketball quilt back.

My little guy peeking around the edge!

The quilting was done by Margie at Big Pine Quilts and she generously donated her services.  Thanks Margie! The border made from basketball shorts... it took F-O-R-E-V-E-R, all of it lined with interfacing and pieced... ugh.  But I like the finished product. :)

I have two more quilts back from the quilter, so a couple of finishes coming your way soon.
