I get a huge smile on my face when quilters send me pictures of what they've created from my patterns. My friend Lynnette, sent me this picture of her gorgeous Grammy Squares quilt.
Lynette added her own special touches in each of the corners. This also showcases the excellent quilting by Dianne Schweickert.
Both of the quilts that I'm showing you today are an excellent use of your scraps. You can mix, match and throw just about everything in the mix. I always tell my quilters not to stress when making a scrap quilt. Use it all, and they work beautifully together.
News on the BEAR front. Another bear strolled by during breakfast the other day. My sister and our friend Paula were here to see it. This bear was a little shy about having a picture taken, but let me tell you that it was big, it was golden, and it was in our yard. Note to self: Don't forget to take the airhorn when I go out for my walks.
Now, news on the BOM front. The blocks are almost all sew together and it is really starting to look like something. I'll finish up the rows today, and start on the borders tomorrow. Then I'll make the backing and get this quilt loaded on my longarm. I've decided my least favorite part of quilting is stitching the rows together. It takes me an eternity! My second least favorite thing of quilting is loading the quilt on the longarm. That takes me an eternity also.
Let's hum a few bars of....If you go down in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise. Sorry for the earworm, but it's what I will be humming today.
