Rushing?

I don't think I am rushing the blocks for Gypsy Wife , they just seem to be flowing out. I have a few more finished and I am loving it!  


This is called "Star Block".  It is 9 1/2 " square


This is called "Indian Hatchet". It is only 6  1/2 " square.


These are puss in the corner blocks, one has a border,the other not. One is 5 1/2" and one is 7 1/2" square.


This block is called "Crazy Anne" and is 10 1/2" square.  So there is a lot of variety and color! I am truly enjoying it,chatter later ladies, Martha!

Preview Of Things To Come

I have a short preview of some things to come....



I have been making placemats with roosters on them.



My first block of "Gypsy Wife" by Jen Kingwell, Country Threads is also doing a sew a long on this.







This is my Wooly Critters quilt by Brandywine Designs back from the quilters. I still have to bind it. I did not have anyone around to help hold up the quilt for me to take a pic, so after it is bound I will take another pic for you. Chatter more later, Minnesota shop hop starts next week, might get a little busy!

We had our Simple Whatnots meeting and had some great show and tell. Linda Arganbright brought her sampler quilt made with Cherrywood fabric....




Linda Johnson brought a log cabin cardinal wall hanging...



And a Minnesota shop hop table runner.

Mary Theurer brought her version of True Blue for us!




Gail Temple brought a number of things for us to see and share. First was her cardinal wall hanging...






Judy and Lorna brought in their small quilts also!


Judy also brought this small quilt  as a treat for us !

I also had time tomake a small table runner and now am in the process of quilting it....

Hopefully I can get a better pic once it is quilted. Chatter with you later, Martha.
