Bed Bugs

I made this pillowcase for my four year old grandson. The fabric is called Backyard Safari. I was looking for some different fabric other than Thomas the Train or Spiderman, since I've made him several things from those kinds of fabric in the past.

I love this pillowcase tutorial found HERE at Twiddletails!

I have three more pillowcases to made for Christmas.

The Last Quilt of The Year

Today I finished the binding and even put on the label on Bluberri Breezes. This will be the last quilt finish during the year 2011 for me. I have other quilts in progress, but don't foresee that I will be able to finish them.

I am looking forward to working on my remaining quilts in progress as time allows during the remainder of November and during the month of December. I also have a few more pillow cases left to make before Christmas.

I am already thinking about the quilts I will make in 2012!!!

Bloggers Block of The Month - Block Two

The colors in the picture aren't true to the actual block, but when you are using a phone camera and low light, this is as good as it gets!

I think by next Christmas of 2012, I will have a cute Christmas Quilt done.

Here is the Block in progress. I am printing out the instructions for each block, punching holes in the edge and keeping them in a notebook.

The Last Corner of Blueberri Breezes

After two weeks of sporadic free motion quilting, last night I reached THE LAST CORNER AND THE LAST PIN OF BLUEBERRI BREEZES!

If I can get a few minutes to make and sew on the binding, doing the hand sewing on the back will make a great project to work on while I am away from home at night helping with my mother. I hope to show the TOTALLY finished quilt next week.
