Have You Signed Up Yet....

July 23 is the next Friday Night Sew In so.....if you haven't signed up yet click on the button below and read all about it.

I'm still not sure what I will work on yet, I need to decide on what quilt I will make for my nephew's wedding gift, I also need to think about those Christmas gift quilts I HOPE to make.  Kathie's Quilt Shoppe is having a challenge that is due in mid August, I hope to get something started on that soon or I probably won't be motivated to participate.  Who knows  I might have to use the night to get my blocks for this month done on the Civil War Tribute, which has me wondering which one I should do, the more difficult one or the easier version??  The more difficult one has cuts that are in the 16ths and I know that will probably really frustrate me, and I know that the easier one will still help me to improve my skills, which one do you think??  The harder....

Or the simplified version......

When I look at the beautiful quilts that others have completed I think WOW, I have so much to learn.  I am someone that is always wanting to get to the next step and have to remind myself that I need to enjoy the process,  learn from the process, and practice makes "almost perfect".  Quilting for me is very enjoyable and sometimes frustrating but so worth it,  this is something that I do for myself, but is an opportunity to share with others, how much better can it get! 

Gotta go mow the yard before I have to get some cows to come over and take care of it, have a great day. 


  1. I personally prefer the simpler one. It reminds me more of the quilts my mom and sisters used to make.

    About that yard, the good thing about having the cows mow is that they fertilize at the same time. Just makes for slow walking to miss the cow pies. ;)

  2. I just love looking at your quilts and sewing projects. I need to get back to stitching something. Where oh where does the time go. I personally think you should just get cows to take care of the yard. Heck they provide fertilizer too. LOL

  3. I like the simplified version better myself. Even in that one there are a boatload of half square triangles! Looks like fun though! :0)

  4. I haven't signed up yet, but already know what I am making. My goodness you have lots of projects to choose from. Me too.


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
