I am making another quillow!

Here is the fabric for Thomas' quillow. I need to make a push this Easter weekend on making it.

I will keep you posted....

Meanwhile, I mailed out this dish towel and cloth that I knitted to Brian and Tisha.

Brice's Quillow

Fabrics and threads used

Scrappy was a big help!

I used the Mega Quilter to baste the quilt sandwich

I sewed the binding while commuting to work. Don't worry -- AJ was driving.

Finished!! and I had enough fabric left over for a pillow case.

Quillows for my Grandsons!

I am making quillows for my grandsons. I never made a quillow before. I am using directions from Fons and Porter's magazine - Jan/Feb 2007, pages 94-97, and a pattern that was free from Connecting Threads. The pattern is no longer on the website. It has directions for a pieced pillow top and the quilt part. You can watch a video -- link is below. I have the labels made!

Mom's Quilt

I took a picture of it this morning before I shipped it to Florida. It was a kit I bought at Lilies of the Field in Easton. The pieces were badly cut. Some even had selvage as part of the measurement. So I had to do a little fudging here and there. Then I had the worst time quilting it. I spent a lot of time with my seam ripper. All in all - it is a cute quilt and it is finished!
Oh did I mention it came without directions!

Almost Spring

Saturday, as I was at my ironing board pressing fabric, I noticed a wren peeking out of the bird house. Yeah! This is a sure sign of spring when you see the birds building nests.

Both house are occupied.
