My sister made this for her daughter who is pre-med. Isn't it great? Pattern from Floss Box.

Spoonflower to make a quick quilt for my dad for Father's Day. This is my dad's last father's day (he's on hospice) and he loves Dr Who so I wanted to make this for him really quickly. On the door I embroidered each of our immediate family's names in Gallifreyan. There's several Gallifreyan translators online. He really liked it.

I need to make a quilt quickly for a birthday present for a boy in Red's cub scout den. I had most of this fabric-only added the canoes. I had purchased the camping flannel that I used for the backing to make pjs for the boyos but it worked so well on this quilt! I even cut some of my beloved Happy Campers fabric. I really need to find some more of that. This pattern is a free download from Mary Quilts.
I learned a couple of things on this quilt. First off, I need to get more "blenders". Apparently I'm addicted to the flashy fabrics and never think of buying the accent stuff. Secondly, I love love LOVE Mettlers Web Bond spray adhesive. It worked beautifully and had very little odor. Thirdly, using the mdf boards so layer the quilt is really a time and back save. Finally, I really must learn how to do machine binding. I was an hour and a half late to the party because I was hand sewing the binding!
This is the backing fabric. Isn't it great camping fabric?
I really liked these canoes when I saw them. I only bought a half yard and I really should get some more.

I have done next to no sewing lately. My dad has been in and out of hospital since January and I've been trying to help my mom. It's hell gettin' old!
Update: this quilt sold for $250! And I was really pleased that it went to my good friend LouAnn. I can visit!
And my mother made this Death Star cake for Red's ninth birthday!
