This week I managed to cut all my pieces for my tulip quilt. I think it will be for me. I love my fabrics, I tried to pick stuff that reminded me of calicos my grandmas would use. Hopefully I make some time to work on it. I also have my pineapples top on the frame, and have one row left to tie. I got a new Quick Quilts in the mail today, looks like a nice night to curl up on the couch and hope my sore throat goes away soon.
Is it too early for spring flowers? I think I will do this as a queen quilt for myself. This was my practice block.
So far I am making a decent dent in my flannel supply. I have loaded up on it the past 2 Black Fridays at JoAnn's and the shelf I keep it on has very little room. I made a Curious George blanket for my son, a baby top, and last night I started another baby top. I have again this year decided to track how much fabric I buy and use. Last year I ended negative, meaning I used more than I bought. Here are a few pics of the latest projects.
I am cleaning the closet on my day off, and need pattern ideas for my surplus of scraps. I also have lots of little pieces that I could use to stuff something. Any one have suggestions?

Monday she sent a message that she was going to be induced, and that there would be a service to follow. Thursday morning, my niece passed. No matter how much you think you can prepare, it's not enough. To cope, the sewing machine has been running a lot. I got a request on my etsy shop for a twin sized quilt for the lady's
I finished my first regular flying geese quilt today. I really like it.
Now I just have to decide if I am going to gift it or sell it on my esty site.

I was very excited to find a quilting board/blog site. I had been posting on blogspot, but with very limited quilters finding my posts. I love hearing what others think of my projects, and look for advice on some. I come from a long line of quilters, but have learned most of what I know on my own.
