So I thought I would poke my head up and let you know I am still here. I have some finishes to share.

First up is the baby quilt I made for DS3 and his soon to be bride. You can read more about this quilt and its planning on my post Here. It was done in time for their baby shower held at  Chena Lakes near Fairbanks, Alaska.

Our guild's annual silent auction is coming up soon. I was able to complete two items to donate.  My first  item is this little quilt is from Lisa Bongean's book, Summer Gatherings.The original was in wool. I made mine in cotton and needle turn applique. It finished at 12" X 23"

My second item is from a free pattern offered by Quilter's Newsletter called Starry Night. The original finished at 8" X 16". I enlarged the pattern so mine finished at 12" X 23". I also used a Northern Lights fabric for the background instead of appliquing stars. You can find this pattern on their Web Extras Page HERE.

I also made a wall hanging to enter into our local fair which will be held at the end of July. This was my first attempt at fusible applique.  It finished at  21 3/4" X 30 1/2"  and I named it "Who's That Moose on the Window"

Speaking of moose, we saw this one swimming in a pond.

I have been considering changing the name of my blog. When I originally named it I was hoping to use, Everyday Quilts, but that name was not available. Some of my ideas include:

1) Quilt Love

2)  A Stitch in Time

3)  A Stitch a Day

4) The Daily Stitch

Just some ideas, any suggestions would be welcome. Thank you! Rebecca
