Firemans t-shirt quilt

This quilt was a trade with a friend who just happens to be a amazing photographer you can see her work here ,  she took pictures of my twins and also will be taking family pictures soon for us.
I feel very honored to work on this quilt,  i mean this isnt just fabric that i can replace.  Its Claire's husbands shirts and if something went wrong i could never replace them.  I enjoy t shirt quilts just for the simple fact that it makes you think about person who wore the shirts and the job they do,  how many times has her husband saved a life,  it made me think about the job firefighters have to do and also what Claire has to go through as her husband works several days in a row without coming home,  as a military wife i can relate.   t shirt quilts hold someones blood sweat and tears.

Good Fortune

Another top has mad its way out of my to do pile and is now completed.  This fabric is from the Good Fortune line from moda ,  i just love the bright colors against the crisp white.  All this fabric was sitting in my studio and i was supposed to be packing this week but thursday morning i decided I just had to put this quilt together. I started this quilt thursday morning and finished it friday afternoon,  i would of had it done friday morning but well lets just say i cant talk on the phone and sew, kind of like walking and chewing gum.  I ended up sewing the same block on wrong 3 dang times ugh. Oh well that happens and its all fixed now.  This quilt top is being sent off to Charisma  well actually her son Bryce is going to quilt it to me,  he does a fabulous job with the design i want on this quilt.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend and a happy fathers day

Pumpkin pie anyone??

I finished up my pumpkin pie quilt,  yay i am so happy with how it turned out and am excited to send it off to Charisma  I know she will do something fabulous with it.  The pattern came from  one of my favorite designers.  This quilt just reminds me so much of fall and crisp leaves,  hot apple cider,  thanksgivng,  it brings up fond memories of childhood and laughing with my siblings.  Isnt it funny how a simple whimsical quilt can bring up such memories,   I can even smell the warm pumpkin pie fresh out of the oven thanksgiving morning.  I will be sending this quilt off this week and when it returns home we will be in a new house.  All needle turn applique and hand embroidery
Thanks for stopping by enjoy

Where have I been????

Where have I been these last few months....well I like to tell my kids that I am going crazy when they ask where I have been.  So that's where I have been, to crazy !!! I haven't made it back yet.  My husband had surgery and well like most men was a big old baby and I had to wait on him hand and foot.  We are getting ready to move in just a few short weeks and my husband wants to move ourselves.  I can't say I am overjoyed about that,  I would much rather the movers come and deal with it.  Oh and in 2 weeks my husband is having his retirement ceremony,  and we have family coming from all over.  I stress about the house being tip top shape when we have visitors but it just isn't happening this time. Well with all that has been going on I did manage to fit quilting in.  I finished a rag quilt for a customer with all Amy butler's divine!!! Finished a scrappy quilt for Charisma,  worked on some applique,  finished a king size for my neighbor,  finished the cross quilt for a gift...oh did I mention I did some applique? I love love love bunnyhill patterns so that's what I am working on.  Well with out further ado here are
