Finished it today

An online friend showed me this quilt pattern, It is called "wickedly Easy" by Annette L. Unrein. The pattern url is,

Here is my Wickedly Easy top made from 1930 reproduction prints.

Brought out of hiding

OK, I have been working on this project for years now. Today, I have brought it out of hiding. It's from this great book that I just love.

The project is a pineapple quilt. I need 60 ten inch blocks.
I have 37 done and my goal is to do get 3 done a day until they are finished.

Churn Dash quilt

I'm a member of a Yahoo quilt group that loves the 1930 reproduction prints. Last year we had a churn dash swap. I received some of the 12 inch, 9 inch and the 6 inch churn dash blocks you see in this quilt top. I wanted to set them together in a nontraditional manner. SO, this is what I came up with.

The center blocks are only 3 inches square and set on point. Then the set triangels to set it square again. Then I put a boarder of 6 inch blocks around that.

Next, I put a boarder then set 9 inch blocks on point again. Followed by set triangles a boarder and an outside boarder of 12 inch blocks. It's rather large but leaves nice open spaces for really neat quilting.

A special friendship

My big dog, Chloe and the kitten we call Harley, (she's a girl) have a very special friendship. Chloe cleans the kittens ears and the kitten licks Chloe's feet. They are often found sleeping together. Ignore the date stamp on the photo's I had to recharge my batteries and have not reset the stupid thing. These photos were taken this week.

Apple Day at school.

Wed was "APPLE" day in my Son's 3rd grade class room. (he's the Teacher) So, mom to the rescue I made Apple Crips, Apple Sauce, and Apple Sauce cookies. He brought the Cider. LOL the kids were puzzled as to why the apple sauce was pink. lol It was a lot of fun and he has a great group of childern. Randy was up set he couldn't have any of the apple crips so, I made him "Apple Dumplings" Thursday.

That was a lot of fun and the dumplings didn't say to long.
