Still alive and kicking....

And I've been doing some sewing. I finally remembered to grab the camera from my glove box. So...here's what I've been up to! I finished the king size four inch squares quilt for my bed. The back is pieced with 10 inch squares. Done and on my bed! Love it!



I found this in Eleanor Burns book, Egg Money Quilts and tried my hand at applique...AGAIN! This one went really well and I have to admit that I loved making it. Needs binding and it's done!



I've been wanting to make a black and white quilt with one other color, but couldn't decide on a pattern. I saw a strip/string quilt on someone's blog recently and loved it. So, why not!

I have one other quilt I just finished quilting, but I forgot to take a pic. I'll save that for the next post. It's another Bento Box. I love that pattern.

Patti was here sewing with me lately and she has made a Bento Box quilt top, too! Here's hers! It rocks! That's it for now! I'm off to a Pampered Chef Party....and I'm broke! Ughhhhh.....

All your quilts are awesome! I did a string type quilt in black/white/pink and I love it to this day. Patti's looks great too. Glad you overcame applique.

WOW! Look at all the pretty quilts! You have been busy. I Pickles too. Have you seen all the quilty ones they do? I have them cut out and pasted on my quilt room door! Pickles, Zits and For Better or Worse help me see the humor in my day. THAT Is very important!

I did the dresden plate from Egg Money Quilts too. I found the template for the center circle to be a bit small. Yours looks fantastic!
