    Hi Pat, thanks so much for your message. Today started out okay but ended kind of rough. Scott,thats my sig. other had to go to his dads ro help clear away some ice and snow that were causing issues. And he said he wanted to talk to his dad. Then made mention a few times via email about how he wasnt sure what the future held. I started to get angry because i feel like he is not committed to making things work and is just leaving me hanging. I told him that maybe we needed to separate for a bit but that means telling Liam and neither of us are willing to do that just yet. So now I am just sad that it has all come to this. And I am getting more and more concerned about my ability to cope. I am trying to stay as positive as I can but not having him here even one night is hard. Anyway....it is difficult for me to talk right now without crying and Liam is buzzing around so I should probably stop. Thanks for checking in. You are very kind. Wend

    Well, The book only gives a single block and shows it as shaded areas of a grid...like if I were designing a block on graph paper. I would have to enlarge it and then I'd be on my own to put it together. There are no instructions. I don't think it will be terribly hard, but I just need to think about the easiest way to to sew all the pieces together. That's okay...I love a challenge.

    Yay! Mimi, I found "Trees in the Park!" I have a book called The New Quilting and Patchwork Dictionary that I bought back in the 80's and I found it in there! I love that quilt so I've put it on my list of quilts to make. Thanks for sharing your Mom's quilts with us. Hugs.

    Thanks for the comment on the patriotic teddy bear fabric. To tell you the truth I can't remember where I got it. But since I have never bought online I can say it had to have been either Joanne's or Wal-Mart and at least 11 or 12 years ago. I wish I had a few yards of it and I would send you a yard, but I don't. At the time I was making little girl dresses for a friend's daughter to start Kindergarten. If I come across any like it or similar I will try to snatch it up and then let you know I have it.

    Hi Pat, thanks for your kind comments. There originally was a machine on the table, but I pulled it to bits to try and fix it, and needlesss to say it stayed in bits. I love the table - spent many hours rust ridding it and painting it in a high gloss black. The topper is hand pieced, it was an ongoing project for many years and I only just decided I had the right place for it, so finished it and I added the lace, think it works well.

About Mimis-quilts
My mother loved to make and give away quilts and my sister loved to make them as well, however they are both gone and I am trying to carry on the tradition. I watched my mother make many quilts and learned to make them by watching her. I only really started "getting into" making them about 4 years ago when my first grandchildren (twin boys) were about to join the family. I made them crib quilts and have since made 5 more baby quilts, 2 wall hangings and I am presently handquilting a queen size quilt. I love to make quilts and I hope to learn more about this beautiful expression of art from this site.
