IT'S JUNE ALREADY?!?!


 I have been very lax about posting lately and it's been over a week!  I meant to post this a couple days ago, but I've been busy.  Can't believe it's June already!!!

In my last post, I showed you the "cheater" panel by Kim Diehl, and now it is finished!  It sure goes a lot faster when you don't have to actually do the appliqué!!!  This was a fun project for me.  I decided to make the medallion similarly to the "Faithful" quilt-a-long that Lori had a few years ago.  I do love that and you can see it here.  My finished panel below is a little wonky and I'm thinking about blocking it.




This is the table runner.  I have placed it on my coffee table.


When I was digging through some baskets, I came across some 4-patches already done and decided to make a small quilt (doll quilt) out of them.  Here it is hanging on my clothesline.

Can I brag about my grandson?  He just graduated with honors (Magna Cum Laude) from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota.  We are very proud of him and can't wait till he gets back home in Oregon.  He should be arriving this week!


Today I'm going on a shop hop with my quilting buddy!  We plan to hit about 5 or 6 shops in the Salem area!  I hope I can avoid spending much money.

Your cheater panel quilt turned out nice. I love your little 4 patch doll quilt. Hugs

The two new quilts look great! It's amazing how a little dressing up can make a panel shine. And congrats to the grandson - that's fantastic! Have fun on the shop hop!

First off, I've never even met your talented GS, but I want to brag on him too! Not many young men have accomplished as much and just to think of his grades and determination amazes me. You have every right to be proud of him, and he also should be very proud of himself. I hope he will continue to make the most of his musical talent and education! I feel sure he will. Wish I could hear (and see) him play. His footwork alone is a major accomplishment!

Your cheater wall hanging turned out nice; lots of little HST! The table runner is pretty too. As usual, your little doll quilts are always so sweet! Hope you didn't spend all your money in one place today! ---"Love"

I love how you used the panels!
Have fun at the shop hop!!
You have reason to be proud. Is he going to work here in Oregon?

Just looking at your Kim Diehl piece, I had not thought it was a cheater panel. Your wall hanging looks good.
