I took an online class on how to stitch blocks. I purchased a panel because I have no time to make quilts for myself. The practice on these blocks has been amazing I have learned so much and I was bound and determined to master feathers. I have improved on all of the Phils.

I also wanted to show you the back of my class project. It turned out as a whole cloth quilt. I love it.
I have a wedding I’m going to. So I found a jelly roll of color and one of white and put together this gorgeous thing. I put all the leftovers on the back.
I had lots of leftovers from a birthday quilt I made for my mom a few years back (mostly hydrangea prints because they’re her favorite). So, here’s my “Happy Hydrangeas” quilt.
I have been busy finishing projects.
This was a block from last years row by row. I liked it so much I decided to make it a wall quilt.
Judy Liebo pieced a striking labyrinth at a MPS retreat. When I ran across this Christopher Florence (Portland quilt designer) pattern, I decided to give it a try. The biggest challenge was quilting black thread on black fabric with my aged eyes. I continually used a lint remover to pick up any lint while quilting. Fun wall hanging but no more quilting black thread on black fabric for me.

My grandson’s 5th Birthday Banner. He loves playing with cars and trucks. I make 12×12 birthday banners for my grandchildren. They have a ritual of opening the new banner first, taking down the previous banner, and putting up the new banner before opening other presents. The new banner is hung for a full year. My challenge is coming up with new Birthday Banner ideas every year.
