Another Finish... Bennington Pure Quilt .....



Just finished sewing on the binding on Bennington " Pure " Quilt . I made this quilt out of all Moda's PURE fabric line. The pattern is called Bennington and is from CArrie Nelson's " SCHNIBBLES TIMES TWO " book. This is going to be a christmas present and I plan on making matching pillowcases to go with it.

I just love the brown polka dot fabric I used for the binding.

HAPPY SEWING !

Eventide Luna Notte Done.........


I completed my " EVENTIDE " this last weekend by finishing the binding ! I have decided to use this quilt on my guest bedroom bed. I did sew on a quilt sleeve on the back just in case I would like to display it on the wall . For those of you new to my blog I made this quilt in Thelma's EVENTIDE sew along and if it was not for her I know I would have never completed this amazing quilt. I made my quilt out of Luna Notte fabric from Moda.

What I have been up too ........

WOW ! Where has this last week gone ???

Well to start with the instant hot water broke in the kitchen so I having been shopping around for a new one and a new kitchen faucet. Then the tv froze up so we have been dealing with the tv repairman AND my deskop computer stopped working so it is at the PC doctor ! When it rains it pours :-(

Last weekend I did get some sewing time in though...









I did make this " STARLIGHT LOG CABIN " quilt top . I made it out of all of Jo Mortons " HURRAH " fabric line and I ordered the red fabric for my border.





I also worked on my " GOOD FORTUNE " quilt I have 6 more stars to sew together and then start piecing it together. I am making this quilt out of all Moda Collection for a cause "LEGACY " fabric.


Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend !

Happy July 1st & My Gardens .....

Happy July 1st ! I thought I would share with you today pictures of my gardens. This picture is my trellis of 4th of july roses I have on a trellis in the front of my house.


As you walk along side of the house I have this garden that leads to the patio





This is the 1 side of the patio as you walk towards the back yard






Then you walk along the path in the backyard to the deck where my hydrangeas are starting to bloom








This is where I spend most of my quiet time




and..... this is where we entertain




Wishing everyone a Happy & Safe 4th of July weekend !
