Spring Fling Show and Share

Two weeks ago our quilt guild, the Forget-Me-Knot Quilters, had our annual Spring Fling. It is a two day event, on a Friday and Satuday, right here at home, filled with lots of fun and lots of stitching. I made it for Saturday. This year we each  brought whatever we want to work on. In the past they have had teachers come to present classes. I have to say I like they way we did it this year, it is so fun to see what everyone else is working on and we had more time to visit and share.

Speaking of sharing, here is some show and share from Spring Fling!

Shirley with a very cute baby quilt!

Sandi with her Love Shack quilt from a Bonnie Hunter class. Very cute!

Terry is hiding behind this gorgeous Tea Pot quilt she made. I really loved this one! She was working on the binding.

Brenda with her wonderful Alaska Moose for the Month quilt. (Not sure if that is the actual name.)

Lynn with the Sock Monkey quilt she made for her DH. The fabrics were so cute!

This is a backing Linda was working on. Isn't it great!

I brought my Featherweight to sew on, what fun! I need to get her out more often. She has been christened Betsy, because she reminds me of my mother's sewing machine she used when I was small. I used to sit on the floor and play with the Betsy McCall paper dolls from the McCalls magazine while she sewed.

I did get my purple Dresden Flower for the March RSC16 done. I still need to complete my Liberated Log Cabin blocks. I am really loving these Dresden blocks!!  

Happy Quilting ! Rebecca

Worst Blogger of the Year

So, I think I am in the running for the "Worst Blogger of the Year" award! I won't go into the reasons I haven't been blogging, I will just say I wasn't up to it. There has been some quilting going on and over the next few posts I will share my progress.

First up though is an introduction to my precious little great granddaughter Addison!

Addison Marie

Addison was born on February 18, I got her quilt finished on the 13th.

Now for some quilty news. I finally got my Dancing Stars top out again and pondered and pondered on what to do for borders. I tried at least six different ideas, including piano key borders, one in different reds, then reds and neutrals, and then scrappy, they just didn't work.   The the HSTs just seemed to work for me. Now I need to layer and baste it, get it quilted and I will bind it in red.

I have been making progress on my Tumbler Leader/Ender project and keeping up with my RSC16 blocks too. I am still working on March's purple blocks.

Stay tuned for more quilty goodness next time! Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting, Rebecca
