4 patch stack n whack quilt

I started this quilt a couple of years ago and all I had left to do was the borders...finally got it finished or almost finished. I still need to do the binding. when it all done I will share a better picture. I'm posting from my Ipad and I've never used Ipad for blogger so I hope I'm doing it all right.

I feel like this is me today. Seems like I can't find a few things I need.
oh well I suppose they will show up sooner or later.
My friend Alyce gave me this ME calendar or Christmas, all the pages are so darn cute! 

I love you more than QUILT

I made this quilt for my grandson Tyler, every since he could talk and say I love you, we would go back and forth telling each other "I love you more than" what ever we could think of that second. It was fun but now he thinks he's to old for that, he's only 8. Grandpa told him he will never be too old to say I love you to Grandma.

I'm back to blogging

I gave up blogging for a few years but now I'm back.. A lot has changed since then as I'm sure it has with everyone else too. I won't bore you with all the detail. For now I just wanted to share that after working 10 years out of my home doing long arm quilting, I now have my own little studio in the same building as my husbands print shop ( Advanced Image Design) I don't have my name on the door or window yet but only because we have been to busy to stop and do it. I love being there and working there. I get to see him all day or most of the day and help him with the printing side of it. All of my quilt ladies (clients) are just as excited about the move as I am.
The photo is one side of my studio. I love that I have a big window to see out of. Before at home I got to look at the grey brick wall dividing our home to our neighbors home.
I'm going to do my best to keep up but I may not be able to post everyday. Don't give up on me please. I love sharing photo's of my quilts and my clients quilts.
Hope you all had a great weekend.

I didn’t get a wild hair.


Ok so I didn’t get a wild hair the other night and trim and make the binding for the grandmothers garden quilt, instead I finished this cute little pillow I made awhile back and kept forgetting to pick up stuffing for it. Once I got the stuffing it was all done in about 15 minutes. I also got the binding made and sewn on another quilt…



My friend Helen was by the other day to visit when Wendy and my grandbabies were here… she made these cute flowers and pin cushions for me…she is always so thoughtful.. she even brought a little gift for Molly and Tyler.


Love the flowers, I will have to attach them to a bag or a sweater or something, very pretty.



One of my clients make this cute little bag for me. Across the top sewn into the casing length is a piece of metal measuring tape. It pops open and close, you know how measuring tapes works, it’s pretty fun to play with too.. I am easily amused I guess Smile

Thank you M, I love it.



I can’t believe I sent out 3 quilts yesterday and forgot to take pictures first, I never do that Sad smile

Here are 2 little cute quilts to show. The first she is using for a wall hanging is a room she is redecorating.



A cute little cowboy quilt for her grand baby, with minkie on the back. Love that minkie.



Over the long weekend we took a good walk next to the Kern River, AKA the Killer Kern… it really is a dangerous river although it looks really calm here, there are under currents everywhere. Every year there are drowning's there, especially up farther into the Kern Canyon and they say most are people from out of town that just don’t realize how dangerous it is. Very pretty to look at but please don’t go in. If you want to know more or see more pictures just Google it, very interesting.


While walking we saw this tree, I have now clue what it is… there are little orange colored and black colored pods. We found one on the ground and tried breaking it open but it was to hard to even crack a little, you could tell it was hallow. The orange ones look like little pumpkins.. I told hubby it is a pumpkin tree, he didn’t believe me Smile


We also saw a few of these little guys hopping around.. they have the biggest ears. Dennis got a nice close up shot of the ears and you can almost see right through them… I will have to get that picture from him.



Grandbaby photo of the day.

A few years ago Hubby made this little picnic table for kids.

He said lets let the kids paint it, so here is what they did.. they had so much fun. Now I have all the hand prints on it except for Retts, he wasn’t here but Rylee painted his name on it for him.

I was a nervous wreck that they were going to touch something else but they did pretty good, only the table and their hands had paint on them.



Hope you all had a nice 4th, thanks for stopping by.

Happy 4th of July


Hope you are all having a Happy 4th… I just wanted to share a photo of my daughter and her hubby. They are both proudly serving in the USAF…

This is an old photo taken about 10 years ago. She is now a Captain and he is a flight engineer and gunner on the osprey. <~~~~Hoped I spelled that correctly…

I am so very proud of both of them…. they are the parents of Miss Molly and Tyler…

Wish you all a Happy and safe night.

Delicious fluffy heavenly things that barely made it through the front door


I love rising dough, it equals something yummy, and yummy they were. I made 5 pans of the cinnamon rolls and one pan of the caramel pecan, only one of the caramel pecan because it was a new recipe and I wasn’t so sure of it but they were delicious. Mr. Seams to sew and Quilts favorite now. So I gave away all but a few of the caramel rolls and 5 of the cinnamon rolls… Everyone that received them were very appreciative. My friend Chris refers to them as…delicious fluffy heavenly things that barely made it through the front door Smile



Our first tomato from the vine this year.. It was delicious, we ate it with dinner last night.



Cute cat quilt….

and the back of it.


This quilt was made by my mother in laws aunt a long time ago… she can’t remember exactly when but she is 80 so it was a long time ago… I quilted an all meander on it and still need to trim it and sew the binding on. I have had it done for awhile but just keep putting off making the binding.. Today I took it outside to take a photo. I couldn’t really see for the bright sun but at least I have a picture of it and have it out… who know maybe I will get a wild hair and start the binding tonight. It really it pretty thought and all the fabric is all feed sacks….


Grandbaby photo of the day…

Miss Molly, she looks like a little bird looking for food.



Have a safe and Happy…..

I woke up this morning craving these….

I made some the day Wendy and the kids arrived and they were gone in no time flat…

So this morning I whipped up a batch and they are rising now, they won’t be ready in time for breakfast today but tomorrow throw one in the microwave for a few seconds, add a little more icing and it’s like they just came out of the oven.

Also I am trying a new recipe for caramel pecan rolls… I will post about how good they are too Winking smile

This is a really cute quilt… love this fabric too.. After this client saw my tumbler quilt made with that same fabric she had to make one using it too.. Her grand daughter loves cupcake everything.

Life gets in the way of blogging sometimes

Am I the only one that takes time off from blogging? I try my hardest to keep up but just can’t do it anymore.
So I guess I have the blogging bug again for awhile. I can’t seem to find the time to post regularly anymore but I do read a lot of blogs but don’t always comment either.
My grand babies from Florida have been here for the last two (wonderful) weeks. I miss them terribly already and can’t wait to see them again. We had a good time with them and my daughter. I hated to see them leave but the quiet time is nice too…
My daughter said as soon as they got on the elevator at the airport here Tyler said “ mommy I miss my Grandma” he is such a sweetie.
Now on to some beautiful quilts.
This antique SS quilt is so cute.
Really liked this one too but I can’t remember the pattern. I quilted daisy chain on both of them.
There is just something about red and white quilts that I like but I don’t think I have ever made one… it’s on my to do list though… this lady did not like this quilt when she dropped it off to me but when she picked it up she loved it… she just didn’t think she had done good on it but after quilting it looks really good to her.. I think it looks just as pretty before.
Ok these next 2 quilts are the same quilt…(they are just turned different in the picture) she washed it in something that she thought was a color setting wash but it was some kind of a color catcher and it took all the color out of it.. it still looks nice, really it looks like the same fabric but just in another color way. I wish I could remember the name of the wash she used.
Anyway after all this she wanted to make another one just like it and they didn’t have the kit any longer so she bought the shop demo quilt and brought it to be quilted….

Tyler and Molly… these are my Florida grand babies. I don’t what was going on with them in this picture but I thought it was too cute, they both have such a silly little grin going on.

Here they are after a long day at San Diego Zoo.
We had a lot of fun with these two little monkeys. I’m already missing them BIG time and they just left 3 days ago…
Thanks for stopping by….. may your stitches always be perfect.
