Blue Star Quilt

My sister from Average Quilter and I quilted this quilt. She used her quilting machine. This is the back of the quilt.
This is one of the squares that i had hand quilted.
This is the part were my sister used her quilting machine.
This is the end of the project that she and I did.

I gave this quilt to a friend. Her and her husband just loved the quilt. She keeps on thanking me for it. All I can say it was my pleasure to do this quilt with my sister. And I love giving a quilt to someone who really loves and appreciates it. She said that both of us did beautiful work.

Thank You Margaret for your help. We need to do it again(I get them done faster that way). Debbie wanted me to tell you thank you and she really loves the quilt.

Kwik Bind

Well here you go. I have been playing with the kwik bind. It did not go so well at first. I did this blanket and took it out. My sister Margaret from the average quilter told our mom that instead of having the machine side ways like they say to put the machine back the way it goes. Well I did that and it went great. Now I can't wait until I have another quilt to bind. With any luck I will have another one this weekend.

By the way I got the material for this quilt from my sister's store inch worm fabrics. I just love these panels.

What I did last week

Last week I had my grand kids. My son lives in OK and he had to have surgery so I had the pleasure of keeping these two lovely girls.

We really had a good time. There is nothing like grand kids. So needless to say I got no quilting done. But the week before I did finish a quilt. I will take a pic of it later and put it on the blog. I just had to show off my pretty girls.

Good and Bad

I don't have any pictures at this time. I just wanted to say I have been busy.

Well My last child graduated May 27. It sure was a sad thing but a good thing too. Sad because he is the last one of four. But I am proud of him. It sure was a hard road for him. Have no pictures at the time yet but I will soon.

Than Sunday night at 9:30 while I was talking to my daughter she had a wreck. Boy was I scared. A drunk driver ran a stop sign and hit her and her husband. The car was total. But the good news is they walked out of it. She has a black eye from hitting the door window and bruised her knees. Her husband got a busted lip, two staples in his chin and hurt his shoulder a little. It could of been a lot worse for they were not wearing their seat belts(lesson learned). I am thankful they are alright.
So this last week I have been helping them out. Which I am happy to do.

Oh yea the other bad thing is they guy that hit them had no insurance. But my daughter had full coverage.

I am thankful for all my family and friends. An experience like this makes you glad that you have both. So please everyone be careful and watch out for those who think they don't have to do the right thing.
