Dancing in the Stars

My latest pattern for Moda Bake Shop was published on July 25th.


Made with "Nocturne" by Janet Claire, quilted in "Avocado" by Anne Bright


The quilt is made from 3 1/2" squares and half square triangles and finished at 82 1/2" square.

I used left over fat quarters to make the back more interesting.

I'd love to see your version of the quilt if you make it.

(and yes, I am still avoiding that big quilt waiting in the wings....)

Better late than never....sometimes....I'm sticking with that today.

I am only a month late posting about all the going ons of July 2015.  

In between getting new floors in our kitchen and dinning area (and all of the furniture moving, cleaning, painting, and general mess that entails) 

Library make over.

and retreating (twice) to the best retreat center in the whole of Texas (Greenbriar Retreat Center)


I quilted 15 quilts for customers.

And enjoyed my boys being home.

August 2015 in my Rearview

It has been a busy summer....thus the infrequency of my posting....which wasn't that frequent to begin with...but has ceased all together this summer.

I thought I would take a moment (read stall to avoid that really big quilt I need to do today.) and try and catch up.  Starting with the most recent happenings...

August was a very busy month for me.

I quilted 21 quilts for customers (that does not include the previously mentioned object of my avoidance).

Got my oldest son moved into his very first apartment.

My boy's home for the next year. #asu @g00s33gg

Went to a quilt show...more on that to follow.

Saw all three of my boys safely back to school.

And he's off. #gowithGod

I now have a Sr in high school (red shirt who is standing on his toes to be taller than his brothers), a sophomore in college (the boy in the middle) and a super senior (5th year) in college (sleepy boy on the right). I am honestly just a little bit frightened of what my days will be like next year when they are all away and it is just me in the house all day.

Sigh, I no longer have three little boys....they have become men.
