My Favorite Shoes are Boots

I am embroidering shiny mylar boot blocks....with Wrangler fabric that I found at a thrift store for background. The quilt will be named My Favorite Shoes are Boots.  

So far, I have finished 3 blocks.




You can't tell in the pics, but the mylar makes them shine and sparkle.

Good Vibrations

I love it when a top is just one piece to cut and it goes together quickly. This is called Good Vibrations and was a pattern in a mailing piece to subscribe to American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.


I can see this in a lot of different colorways. might be another one i want to make more than once.

Funky Snowmen Friends

This little pattern came in my inheritance from my friend, Sharon. It is a bit strange, but i like it....i guess because I am strange myself. haha

It is 36 x 41"  It is fused applique.

The pattern had the snowmen in plaids, so i actually followed the pattern.

I had a wild red print to use for sashing and border

The backgrounds are all the same mottled gray but the camera messes them up

The sleigh is full of toys...have you been good?

Finished piecing a couple of tops

Hubby was out hunting for a few days, so i decided to finish up some tops that had been languishing.....very close to finished.

These are just pieced, not quilted yet.

First there is Midnight. a pattern in a magazine...queen size. the magazine had the size 85x105 and i thought that was a narrow size, so i made mine 95x105...more queen size. cut little rectangles 3x5 1/2....large black rectangles 5 1/2 x 15......and sew for days and days. haha

Then, i was trying to use up some black selvages. this used a lot....but not enough...that dang black selvage box is still full.  i don't know how that is possible.

All have a red stripe in the middle. in the middle blocks i used selvages without the white section; then, in the border i used the selvages with the white part. 8" blocks. it is about 60x75"
