Name the pattern now!

OK, remember this pattern?  I made 2 and my friend Manders tested the third.

You can go see all the other color combinations here.

We ended up with 32 nominations for the name!!  AWESOME!   So here is a poll.  Since there are so many, I’ll do it in waves.  You may choose up to 5 names.  Top 10 will make it to Round 2.  You have until Wednesday at NOON CST to vote.  THANKS!

peace and pieces,


Quilt in place, and 2 on the pipeline

The first mini quilt has been placed.  This is for my brother.  The fresh dirt means he had a new neighbor move in recently.

I have all 20 blocks done for the Cameron Council on Aging Raffle quilt!  Going to try and get that top put together today.  I don’t think I have any backing, though….hmmm……  Need batting too.  DARN!

And I have started creating the pattern for THIS quilt!!  I’m really excited about it.  The applique was a poster from the Olympics in the mid-late 70’s.  This will be a TWIN quilt!!

Better get to work!

peace and pieces,

Mini quilt foray

I have never made mini quilts before, and I just made 2!!  These mini quilts go on 2 graves.  The first is for my Grandmother.  The block (in EQ) is called Grandmother’s Favorite!  And her fav color was blue.  It finished at 5 inches!!   WOWSERS!  Then 1/2 borders.  I’m really pleased with the way they both came out.  And almost every seam matches on this!!!

And I’m trying to get my brother ready for Mardi Gras!  I did this as a reverse applique, then plopped the purple on top of that.  I think it should make it more weather-hardy.  Only time will tell.  It also was a 5 inch block.

The pattern was adapted from a free BOM by Dream Castle Quilts.  The link is HERE.  I think I’ll redo this for the front door!!!
