Pin basting

I've got my medallion top all pin basted ready to quilt, now I have to decide how I'll quilt it.
Since I am new to machine quilting this is always the hard part for me.  I am calling this my Diamond Jubilee quilt since I am celebrating my 60th year.  This is a sew along done by Lori and Randy and you can see more of the tops on their blogs.  Happy Sewing, Kim

Sew Along

I'm making some progress on my Lori and Randy medallion sew along.  I've added my initials and the year
along with a few colorful comes some flowers and leaves.  I've gotta stick with this and
get all the cut out bits machine appliqued down....wish me luck.
Happy Sewing,

Just One Slab

Have you heard?

red scraps

Lots of memories in scraps, I'm so grateful I have not lost them to a flood.

It was so much fun to make a slab that I made two :0).
Cheryl Arkison co-author of " Sunday Morning Quilts"
is collecting "slabs" to make quilts for the victims of the Calgary
floods.  Can you imagine losing all you own in a flood?

  All you have to do is make one and mail it  to Cheryl, all the
quilt making will be done in Canada by volunteers.

I hope you can help by making "just one slab" into a 15.5 inch block.

Happy Sewing, Kim
