Those aprons are cute, Heather. Is the squares one a one-piece fabric or squares sewn together?

Nice quilt, Vanessa.

Love the quilt. I'm attempting my first full size one this year for Christmas.

Here's some aprons I finished so far.


This one is for my niece. We make cookies together almost everytime she is here. I'm going to put together a recipe book for her and some cookie cutters too.

This one was supposed to be for my sister in law, but I REALLY like it. And you can't ever have too many aprons so....not sure who will end up with it.


I have the fabric picked out for a couple more. Just need a few more hours in the day LOL!

Theresa, those butterfly blocks are beautiful. I bet your quilt will be so pretty when you make it.

Very pretty. It probably wouldn't have worked too well with mine as they were mostly whitework embroidery that wouldn't show up well like the colored embroidery.

Judith, I know what you mean. What I love about the butterfly quilt is it really showcases them. This is not mine but shows how I am going to do them.

I had a laquered handkerchief box that belonged to my maternal grandmother and filled it with handkerchiefs from my paternal grandmother and great aunts. So pretty -- drawn threadwork, embroidery, tattied and crochet edgings. I couldn't bring myself to alter them so I gave them to my Granddaughter who loves vintage linens.

Judith, I also start in the center. I have been working on this quilt for 6 years. Just now getting to go around the edge then bind and I will be done. I don't think I will ever do a King size whole quilt again. LOL. I think I have decided to work on Grandma's handkerchief butterfly quilt next. I've had my Grandma's hankies for a while now and I think it will make a nice gift for my daughter. At least it won't take more than a year or two to finish. LOL

Grace, that actually sounds like fun! Both now and as a granny lol! Love your pillowcases.

It's finally the weekend and we have nowhere to be, so I can enjoy some more crafting while my kids play with their Halloween projects. It's been a long week for us with preschool and my little baby getting a cold. She is finally on the mend and no longer cranky and clingy.

I don't hand quilt. Do you always start around the edge? I always start my machine quilting in the center. I guess they are different methods so different techniques.

Judith, yes they are but are a ton of work. Started around the edge so it won't be long now.

Grace, I feel it! Lol. This year is going to be extra special for me, because my oldest is understanding Santa and is excited to make Christmas cookies, gingerbread houses, and such, so my goal is to have all my Christmas projects done before December 1st that way I can focus of the fun stuff with him rather than rushing and stressing over getting all my stuff done. Basically I'm overloading my self now to make it happen. Lol. I did start the diamond painting last night and got quite a bit done. It's going to be an easier one. I just need to keep up my pace.

Theresa -- I can't wait to see pictures of our quilt. Whole cloth quilts are special.

Linda, I'm sorry my link didn't work, but I'm glad you were able to find it. The pattern does seem a little small. They are kind of tight on my hands. So I suggest sizing up. Luckily my brothers girlfriends hands are smaller than mine.

Theresa, that's so cool. He is going to love it. I ran out of paint and need to go get more today. I plan on going after nap. Hopefully tomorrow I can get some more painting done. I'm also grabbing some material while I'm there to make a couple tie blankets for my boys.

I also have a diamond painting arriving today. I'm making it for my MIL. I'm getting super excited for all my projects.

I was searching of YouTube for a particular idea... when I came across another way to make pillow cases with self enclosing and French seams.. I posted it on face book on my fb page... I made a Dolly sized pillow case using the method and it turned out super,,, Normally I serger the seams,, but I really liked how it turned out based on the YouTube video.

Pillow cases are such a easy and great gift... I have several in both trailers as well as in my home.. and about every 4 years or so, I make new ones as gifts.

I also made simple ones to tuck in the lap quilts that our ladies group, "Covers of Love", donated to the Children Hospital in Fresno.
