" A Quilt for Me" continues

Well, with an hour here and there I have managed to get all the blocks made for my
" Midnight Garden" quilt. Another Saturday night, with nothing on the tube ( that I want to see) and the hubby watching his Nascar Racing, I decided to work on the quilt! I am not sure what it is about this quilt that calls to me, but I am loving it! Here is the 1st row and the others are just about finished.
I even started cutting some 1 1/2" squares from the leftovers so that I can make the
"Sisters" quilt from our Little Womens Club. I am determined to also get this done!

Happy Quilting,

It started on Mothers Day...coming back from breakfast. I thought about all the long arm quilting that needed to be done and that I should go to the shop for the rest of the day. But a little voice inside kept saying " Do something for Yourself". So, with that thought I pulled out a project that I have been wanting to do for sometime now. Most of the fabric was already picked out, so I dusted off my Bernina, starting cutting and piecing...........it felt so good!!! Pictured are some of the blocks that will go into the quilt. Of course Jo Morton fabrics are being used along with one of her patterns called " Midnight Garden" from the 2009 American Patchwork Quilting magazine. Watch for more pictures to come!!! I am determined to finish this quilt so I can have something new in my house.
How come the floor in my sewing room looks so clean...swiffers are a wonderful thing!
Happy Quilting.

Jo Morton " Little Womens " Club

Yesterday was our Jo Morton " Little Women's" club and I couldn't believe that almost everyone had their project finished. Each of the "Sisters" quilts were made with different colorways, some with black , others with blue, brown, chedder and one with pink. What a show!!! These girls are so dedicated and come to the meeting enthusiatic and eager for the next project( even though there are some moans about the small pieces). I am so proud of these girls and I would bet that Jo Morton would be to......keep up the good work girls!!!
Also, a big THANK YOU to everyone that supports the shop!!!

Keep Quilting,
