My sister, Christine, is the aunt who is “All About Fun” according to my niece. So when I won three charm packs at the PMQG meeting last month, I thought of her because word “fun” is on one of the fabrics. Happy Birthday tomorrow little sister! You are all about fun!
I’m this week’s Andover Stash Winner! Below is the photo I submitted of my Andover Stash. Here is the link for entering your stash plus you can see who wins every Monday.
Thanks to a super great looking pattern by Tallgrass Prairie Studio in Modern Quilts Unlimited’s first issue, I was able to put a collaboration of blocks into a great looking quilt (50″ x 60″). She received it yesterday on her college graduation day. The back really does match the front, but my color is off a bit on the photos.
On the morning of Andrew’s 21st birthday and before heading to his Physics II class and lab (8am – 2:50pm), he plugged the numbers into a custom math generator on the computer and #12 was chosen. Sheila from the UK wrote “Love quilts and small stuff, hate clothes alterations & mending!”. Sheila has a blog here and also had a small quilt as a giveaway, so I’m happy!
Enjoy your day. It is forecast to be a gorgeous one here in Oregon!
I caught this morning light a few hours ago.
… and then another little piece (29″ x 29″) I made with left over strips of my Summerville quilt that I gave a niece. Both the runner and this piece will go to our church bazaar.
I’m participating in Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day and have this 20″ x 20″ quilted ditty for one lucky winner. It is washed because it fell on the wet porch when I was photographing it the first time.
For a chance to win, leave a comment about what you enjoy sewing before Friday, May 10th at 5pm (PST). I’ll have my son pick a number early Saturday, May 11th: his 21st birthday and I’ll post the winner.
International comments are welcome.

Back in November of 2011, three of us exchanged a LOT of nine patches so that we could each make this Double Nine Patch quilt from the July/Aug 2011 edition of Fons and Porter. Here is the start and below is the finished quilt. It’s 86″ x 100″. The back is a wide piece from my mom ~~ well, so is the borders and four off-set patches. I quilted it with a simple cross hatch. One of Pam’s fabrics had big, red lips. At first sight of them, I knew the name of this quilt.
14 miles and 4,000′ in elevation gain. There were about 10 cars in the parking lot when we arrived at Multnomah Falls, but it was a zoo of humanity on our return. Lunch was a cold ordeal in the snow, but we were prepared with layers, hats and gloves.
Love the sign in the zip lock bag held down by a rock, “Bridge Damage, 1 Person at a Time”
