How I See a Rose


I'd like to thank CAROL for hosting this HOP.  Very simple rules:

What was the challenge?
Your sewn project must have one or more of the following:

Rose/pink fabric
Positive Words

I like to think outside the box on these hops and my Rose Colored Glasses immediately thought of the man, himself, who speaks volumns when looking thru rose colored glasses in the fabric world.

I knew I had some left over Jelly Roll Strips of Kaffee and just had to use them for this project.

And why not go with some hot pink thread to quilt it?  Just some straight line quilting to let those great prints show themselves.

Use a heart print for the backing as this will be a wrap them in love donation quilt.

A bright, fun quilt that will make some child smile.  You have to smile at Kaffe prints!

Fell Into May


May snuck up on me and then kept going!.  May Day was a walk back into winter for us here in the Nor'East - windy, cold, snow, sleet, hail, rain.  Mother Nature threw it all at us that day.

I've been busy doing some business here on the farm with clearing out old farm machinery, tractors, and what nots stored in the 8 barns on the place.  And it will continue once things dry out a bit.

I am working on a commission piece using part of this "Loon Lake" Northcott panel.  What a time I had finding it as it is a much older print.  BUT if you are looking for past dated panels and fabrics = a treasure!  Hingley Road Quilt Shop, Mn has it all and very good service.

 Amd secret sewing for the new HOP.  I need to take a day to get the binding on that one.

With Mother's Day around the corner, I wanted to share my Momma (with walker).  At 95 she is still quilting.  When she had her stroke a few years ago, she cleared her fabric stash not thinking she would be able to sew again.  Yeah, still got her going and was great therapy for her.  She had asked the local guild members to collect/send her brown scraps and this is the quilt she made.  Got her to our last month's meeting to show it off and thank those who contributed. 

Back to my Loons,
Sewingly Yours,
