Ironing Board............

......a few days ago I was reading a few blogs
and trust me I'm way behind in reading and writing.......
 Madam Samm at Sew I Quilt was posting about making an ironing board
.......well I just have to share a few pictures of mine.......I luv it.  
I bought it in a small town in Ontario many years ago.....

....it is great for pressing quilt blocks....do you like it???????

I went to Quilt Market in Salt Lake City and brought back lots for Cori to look at. She will be adding lots of patterns in her shop and also adding lots of new fabrics.....check out her Coming Soon section at Crazy Quilt Girl Shop. She has some Free Spirit fabrics coming and she is also adding a number of fabric lines from yet another fabric manufacturer.

My pictures from Quilt Market are not good but I'm hoping to post about it next week........I've got family,  visiting from Canada till Monday.....the grandpeeps do keep me busy......DGD1 has a dance competition here in Michigan.......3 dances and I can't wait to see her dance tomorrow morning and again on Sunday.

......and next weekend DSister and DBIL are coming for a visit......planning on doing some overdue sewing.  Have a great weekend everyone and I'm hoping to get to posting a little more regular soon.

He's the best.....

....yes he is....and 45 years later he still surprises me.......

Mother's day flowers

he is a keeper.....

and now a little something quilt related....

a quilting friend is moving to Colorado in September and 
our quilt group is making her a 30's signature quilt....here are my 2 blocks

Pandora's 30's pink block Pandora's 30's green block

I also stitched 5 star blocks for the 'Just One Star' program....
Moda was asking for 1800 quilters to stitch just one star block and
they would make 100 quilts for the 'Quilts of Valor' program....
I hope they got a lot of blocks.
I was focusing on getting them in the mail and I forgot to take pictures.
My friend Cori has the 'Quilts of Valor' quilt kit in stock in her shop.
Click HERE if you would like to order a kit. 
The star blocks were easy fast to make.



Cori still has some Sherbet Pips yardage and a few charm packs left.....
....and lots of new pre cuts for Christmas are in stock or will be listed soon...
.....go over for a visit and check out her shop.


I'm off to bed. Nightie Night
