What's Up 2-11-13

I have been getting myself back in the groove after having my daughter and her family here last week. The "little dudes" have grown so much in 3 months. They are now crawling and eating solids.

I do not have a highchair so we feed them on the floor with a sheet under neath to catch all the run off. Can you guess who is the hearty eater.

I am counting the days until I can see them again.
So to pass the time I am focusing on things around here and working on my 
Get - R - Done list is one way.

 This is my Sisters in Scriptures 2 quilt.
Started 4 years ago and I worked on it a little last year but as you see did not get it finished.
This one is my favorite block, represents Elizabeth.
I have made Sisters in Scriptures I, and thought I had a picture of it. I'll need to get it out and take one to show.

Then I need to prepare the applique blocks for the other quilt on my list, 
30's row quilt.
  Need 4 of these

Just one of this one

 Some of the fabric choices.

I'm going to needle turn my pieces and I start by tracing my pieces on freezer paper. I will press my edges under using the freezer paper as my guide. Then I tack down my pieces lightly with glue. I find this the easiest way to have my blocks ready to applique, especially since I take them places and the pieces stay in place perfectly.
This is the project I'm taking with me to the McAllen Texas Quilt Show this coming week.
If you plan on going I hope you will come by and say Hi. 
I would love to meet you and chat.
Our booth is representing Deb Tucker's 180 Designs / Sager Creek from Siloam Springs Arkansas.
I'll be looking forward to it.


  1. What cute little boys. There is nothing like snuggling with little ones.

  2. Ohhhhh! That jelly belly made me laugh out loud. :D You may need a full-on blanket instead of a sheet! :) Intrigued by your 30's row quilt project.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
