Round robin round #2

                                I like paper piecing for small projects and this one is going to stay fairly small.
                                Its beginning to look very valentiney.......cute though right?

Another Alzheimers quilt

                                          I made two of these little quilts to donate for auction to the
                                          AAQI........this is the front and back of "Lime Synapse".
                                          Ami Simms is the quilter who developed this charity as a
                                          way to honor her Mom by helping others.

Scrap happy

                                          Let's follow the scrap trail.......first I made "Carolina Christmas" 
                                          ( Bonnie K. Hunter's mystery) 
                                          then I made a spiderweb quilt ( a QOV) from the scraps of that quilt........then 
                                          from those scraps leftover from the spider web I made "Which Way", a donation
                                          quilt for Alzheimers ( AAQI).  FUN :0)

Inspiration from the Moda Bake Shop

I made this little quilt after seeing this one on the Moda bake shop site,
but also because I had a bunch of 9 patches made that I wanted to use......then I decided to add the autographed blocks that I needed to use in a quilt project.  So it all came together this week when I finished binding it!  Didn't Debby Brown do a fabulous job quilting this  little treasure?  I almost hate to give it to my friend Anna........but I will :0)

Spider web with selvedges

                                Just a little fun experimenting with selvedges.  I have been sewing selvedges
                                onto used dryer sheets and I decided to use them on this project.  It will make a
                                cute baby quilt or maybe a QOV depending on the size it becomes.  Cute but
                                way too time consuming using my method.  ( Bonnie K. Hunter has a better method
                                on her web site) You can see many scraps from my recent  "Carolina Christmas"                                  finish I made over the holidays plus many  donated scraps from Debby.

Happy Birthday Noel

                                           Noel  is 29 today!  I made this "Little Quilt" ( by Mary Ellen Von Holt,
                                           Sylvia Johnson and Alice Berg) for her when
                                           she was 10 year old.  I was so proud of myself, I pieced
                                           and quilted it by hand, even adding little bows and buttons.
                                           It is a 28.5 inch square.

Start of a round robin

                                I started this today since it looks like it will be a nice slow paced
                                quilt along.  Its  "Yours Truly round robin" done on the Carol Doak
                                paper piecing Yahoo group.  A new round will be added by me when
                                Carol post the next installment and the first assignment was easy.....
                                start the center with any Carol Doak design block or blocks.
                                So far so good :0)
