About Me
I have been quilting for nearly 11 years. I have a fabulous husband and two wonderful children. A girl (soon to be 7 years old) and a boy ( 5 years old). We also have a very old Boston terrier.

Outside of quilting I love to garden...I grew up digging up potato and picking watermelons and shucking corn but now I enjoy planting and trimming flowers. Once in a while I will grow some tomatoes or radishes in a container but mostly I love the smell and beauty of flowers.

Merry Christmas!

Posted on December 17, 2010 at 12:53pm 14 Comments

Well I managed to do it. I made about 90% of the gifts this year. It was a little frantic on the 15th as my sewing machine start to act up a bit and I had about 1/4 of quilting to do on a bow tie quilt for grandpa. Then had to do the binding. But I finished and wrapped and garther up all of the presents to be shipped off before picking the kids up.

 

To sum up. I made 3 teacher gifts- table toppers (all the same)…

I made a mess

Posted on November 14, 2010 at 2:00pm 7 Comments

Well I sat down last night and thought about Christmas gifts. A friend encouraged me to do so. Once I put all those names down on paper I go right into what is easy to make so I can save some money. So here it is about a month before I need to put gifts in the mail; I have decided to make 4 bags and 1 tote, 3 table toppers and 2 quilts. One quilt is already a top and thinking I will just quilt one of the many tops I have on hand for the second one. Should finish them in two weeks… Continue

I went on vacation with the kids to Mississippi to see my parents. They have a 82 acre farm with two cows and goats and a working dog named Sunny. It was so nice and peaceful. Then I hosted a vacation for a dear friend. We went to Colonial Williamsburg while hubby kept the kids and then to the beach to play dodge the jelly fish. It was so wonderful and again relaxing!!



Now back to the grid and I can't even seem to get one load of laundry done in a day. lol



I took my sewing… Continue

Nearing the end of Spring

I have my flowers for this season in the ground. Now to wait for the right time to throw grass seed out there and give the landlord what they want. Grass. Here is my back and front yard now after a whole of of raking leaves. This house was empty for a couple of falls and I guess the solution for the owners were to lower their standards on pet and let someone rent it. After all nothing beats free labor.…

I'm not good with names either but alot of times I'll simply adapt the name (you mentioned 2 names in your post) to something that was in my head while making the quilt - say, if it's for a specific recipient, or that you made it from scraps - say, scrappy butterflies - Or Jens' butterflies.
I have a mystery quilt that was a class. In the supply list for getting started, it listed "focus fabric" - I used something that I really liked for that. But when the quilt top was finished, there wasn't as much of this particular fabric as I expected. So I got creative - I added a border that used alot of the focus fabric.
I named my quilt "Finding Focus" - completely irrelivant to anyone else, but I know where it came from.
If you've got a "whoopsy" in your quilt somewhere, you could even make some kind of reference to that. - say "Jacks' friend" (Jack being your seam ripper)

Hi Jennifer, thank you for the compliment on my DH's tote bag. He packed his stuff in it last night, and took it to work with him this a.m.

Best to you as your DH heads off to Korea. As far as the quilt you need to add onto for him, you could always add additional blocks past the current borders, using the completed section you have now as the center of a medallion type quilt.

Hi Jennifer:
Welcome to the Quilt Frame. This has been such a great place to meet other quilters of all ages. I checked out your blog. I love how you have kept track of how much fabric you have and how much you use. I have stuff in plastic shoe boxes all over the place - I think it would be really hard for me to track it. You sound like a very organized person which is great. Loved your quilt show and your use of color. Again, great to have you joining us. Joyce

Welcome Jennifer!
So happy to have you aboard............ 9 years, well guess you aren't what we might call a newbie that's for sure........ With two little ones it has to be hard to find the time to quilt!
I still feel very much a newbie only been up to this for almost two years now, still so much to learn. I am picking up some great tips on this site that's for sure!
Have a great day!
Carol
