Angry Birds!

 Getting ready for Tig's birthday party next weekend.  We're planning to have some beanbag games-plus they will go home as party favors!
Best thing is-I didn't have to buy anything!  This was all from stash including the poly pellets!
Red decided that he wanted to make one too.

Inspired by Patti

I was inspired by Patti who is trimming down her scrap collection.  That plastic bucket was stuffed full of scraps.  I set a limit and started cutting.  Now only two (large) boxes of scraps to go!

Going Coastal

These are some samples for a quilt I want to make for my mother.  She loves the beach and when I saw the shell fabric I knew I had to do something with it.  I'm wanting to make more flying geese as I learned how to use a Fit to Be Geese ruler and now my geese mostly turn out!  This will be just for playing around until I finish the Summer Sampler as I really want to get that off my UFO list.

Summer sampler

 You know, even when I have on the World's Most Expensive Glasses, I still can't see straight.  Here are the finished blocks from the 2011 Summer Sampler at Quakertown Quilts.  I had to stop making the blocks that summer because  QQ closed their storefront.  I wasn't able to get the rest of the blocks until October.  By then I was irritated and put them in time out. 

I made the remaining nine blocks over my vacation last month.  Sashed them last week and now am onto the borders.
DH recommends the stripes in a piano key fashion but sister and I are thinking go for the green print.  The quilt right now is only 44 x 33 ish so it is really too small for a lap quilt.


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
