Quilts Finally!!!!

These are quilts that I am making for myself and my family. The first one you see is just laid out on my floor and ready to be put together. It's for my Mom in Arkansas and it's called "Arkansas Twister." It was online somewhere I forget. I'll find out and post it on my next blog. I think everyone should get credit where credit is due!! It's going to be pretty when it's all finished.
The next one I had to hang outside on the clothesline to get a good picture of it. It is called "Britches." I got this pattern online from Marcia Hohn's site (good site!) It's for my brother Robert and his family. I picked this pattern because he has a houseful of boys (3) and I just thought this would be a great hand me down eventually for the kids.
The really colorful one was made for my "lovey" Bryan. He picked out the pattern "Drunkards Path" and the Tasmanian Devil novelty print. He keeps it in his TV room. Occasionally, I find him in there wrapped up in it sleeping.
The purple wagon wheel thingy--I don't know what it's called really--is for me. I got the original from a friend who found it at a yard sale in a bag!!! Can you believe that? I duplicated the pattern and made this quilt for my kingsized bed. IT IS HUGE!!! I'll get it quilted sometime in the next year or so. I'm quilting this one by hand.
This is just a sampling of what I like to do. Eventually, everyone in my family will receive a "homemade" quilt from me. That is my goal. I will put in some more pics later!!! I did start the new Orange Crush from's site. I can't wait to see it all finished. Mine is very colorful!!!! Bye for now!!!

Still Procrastinating

I really got busy this weekend to finish the toppers on some of my quilts. Yes, I said some. I think I've got about 20 going, plus Bonnie's new Orange Crush mystery quilt. (Iknow another one. I just couldn't help myself.) Hopefully, I will have pictures up this week. We'll just keep our fingers crossed for that.

Be patient with me I'm a Newbie

Eventually I will be getting around to posting all of my works in progress. And that's what most of them are because everytime I get started with one I see a new pattern calling my name and just cannot wait to start it. Do I feel guilty about that? NOT ONE BIT!!! ;-)
