http://www.mc2prod.com gave me a bag of her old, but oh so memorable tee shirts, for a possible future project. So about 4 weeks before Christmas I started the layout. With the help of a friend and wonderful instructor, Jean www.quiltmasters.net I was able to construct a wonderful heirloom quilt for Megan that will surely give her pleasure throughout many years. I can tell you that even though I have been quilting for five years there is always room for more knowledge. The piecing and quilting are mine but Jean did give many helpful hints with the design factor. Every day with every craft is a new learning experience and thankfully this project put a huge smile on Megan's face this past Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas Megan and enjoy your warm treasure!

Once in awhile we must take time for ourselves. These were from my "Crafting For Me" weekends. There is nothing better than a fun project to kick you into the Holiday Season. This candle mat was a fun project which was given by Arlette at the Quilting Circle in Bensalem, PA. Arlette did a great job and we all had a fun day.
Post Options was off playing golf. Amazing how much I can accomplish when I put my mind to it.

My nephew is visiting from Germany and I wanted him to take some part of our country and our Philly teams along with a memorable photo of his Dad (Jim ) and Step-Mom (my loving sis Re). Justin enjoyed his visit here and we are hoping he has a safe journey home and returns to us real soon. We will miss you Justin!

Just returned from MQX in Rhode Island where I traveled to take classes, ( hopefully to enhance my quilting techniques), and also to see the many quilts that were entered in competition. Wow, I was truly humbled! There are so many very talented quilters out there with works of art that are magnificent. The teachers there were incredible and the classes were excellent.
But all that aside now and I am back to work on my own projects (i.e. Michael's Frogs).

faces for Michael's Quilt.

Nearing completion, this quilt has indeed given me a few challenges. A pieced backing was necessary because the quilt exceeded my original design size. It does, however, give the option of being used as a reversible quilt.
So, at present, Jayden's Jungle is on my long arm table and in the process of being quilted. Yea!! Thanks Jeanne and Debbie for your help along the way. Every project is a lesson in patience and creativity.

Frogs and Monkeys - Yes, I have a request for a frog quilt and a monkey quilt.
Well there are a lot of different choices out there but when you are looking for the perfect material, you can easily get lost. I knew I wanted to include a monkey and frog cut-out to applique on each. I called my daughter Megan. We gave her a Provocraft Cricut for Christmas that can cut all types of materials. She came over on a Sunday and we had a delightful Mom & Daughter Day designing baby animals for both projects. We laughed as we crafted and voila -success. As you can see the frogs have no faces but the monkeys do. The inspiration for Michael’s Frogs will come on another day. Quilting is about imagination and creativity. Here are the beginnings of the quilts I am about to create.
