    Busy Bee, that's been me....

    So…I’ve been a busy sewer lately. I haven’t been posting as much because I’ve been parked in front of my machine doing, doing, doing…. Good thing too because now that things are starting to thaw out (Finally!!) it will be time to plant the garden before I know it.

    So far this year I’ve made 9 quilts and 11 all together. Considering I just learned to sew and made my very first quilt for my kiddo to give him on Christmas, that’s a lot of quilts!

    I’ve still got two large lap tops to quilt and finish and I started a new top today, but here’s what I’ve completed. The last pic (next post) is the full sized JRR2 I did for kiddo, and my fav. I backed it with flannel and it’s sooooo snuggly and warm.
    Thanks for looking.

    This one is not on a pink background, it's the sun shining through the pink flannel backing. It's white background just like the one above-

          They are amazing! Nobody could tell you just started quilting a few months ago! All of them are gorgeous! The borders for your son's JRR2 add a lot pf pizzazz.

                      Lol... I have a farm and pretty soon I will be so busy working outside and planting the gardens that I'll be lucky to sew once a month.

                        LOL Leah, we most likely won't see you til after Fall cleanup, so yes, sew while you can!!! All your quilts are just wonderful, and well done! Great feeling isn't it, to know you are so very capable and there is more fabric fun on the way? Hugs!
                        What do you mean I'm easily distracted..........HEY LOOK......FABRIC!!!!

                            Very impressive - so many quilts . . and one prettier than the other! You certainly have the gift of quilting and picking wonderful designs and colors - can I ask about the pattern for the very first quilt that shares the pattern with the "not pink" background . . did you go by a formal pattern or just design yourself . . I find it very striking!!
                            NC sayin's from my mama n' daddy, a reminder, lest I forget:

                            ~I’m gonna tan your hide. (You’re about to get a whoopin’.)
                            ~set yourself down a spell ~~every day of the week n' twice on Sundays
                            ~knock you clean into next week n' then some ~~deader than a door nail
                            ~can't get blood from a turnip ~~your neck o'the woods
                            ~You're just playing possum (pretendin' to be asleep when you didn't want to get up n' go to school)
                            "B"
