Sock Hats...

Here are the sock hats I dyed today. The green was a little to dark for me.. Wanted something like mint.. Maybe add some yellow to the green next time.... There are 34 yellow, 34 blue and 34 green hats.

I'm still alive......

I am still here.. I have been busy working outside in my garden. I decided to take a break from quilting and do something else to get my motivation back for quilting. I have been making bereavement outfit for my local hospital. I am also working on the sock tops to turn them into hats for preemies. I have them all done and just got finish dying them today. I will take a picture soon. Just want to let you know I'm still around..

Latest Project

I am working on another project. This is an Amish Diamond in the Square Quilt that I am working on. I love to hand quilt and I am putting some unique design in the corners. Here is a picture of one of the corners I am working on. I have already done the center and got 3 more corner to do. I still have a few more stitched to put in the corner I am currently working on. I will take a picture of it again when I get some more stitching done. Enjoy.

Amish Doll Quilt Done

I hand quilted rope in the border and stashing. I ended machine quilting echo stitch around the kids since it would be hard to hand quilt echo stitch with all those seams. I love how this turned out. I showed it to Hubby and he said it looks high quality. He is just a good hubby. :)

Amish Kids Top

I finish the other boy and put it together. I will be doing some hand quilting on it as soon as I find something for a backing. I think this is really cute..

Amish Kids Blocks

I needed another project to do so I don't get burned out with Dear Jane block. I search the Internet for a Sunbonnet Sue paper piece pattern and I found one. I play around the pattern to make it look like Amish kids. I really like how these turned out. I am making one more boy and I am going to make a doll quilt out of the four blocks. The blocks are the same size, I put the two girls together to do one scan and it cut off part of the dress.

E-8 Mama's Maze

I-8 Pete's Paintbox

I believed that is a piece of dog hair on my block. Rotten dog, always shedding everywhere but I still love him. This has been an eventful weekend, the kids got sick Friday night and let's just say this we went through every sheet in the house even a king size sheet on a crib size bed. I ended up sick with them very early Saturday morning. The kids stayed sick Saturday along with me and luckily hubby was OK to take care of us. Then Sunday the kids were somewhat better but hubby got sick so it was my turn to take care of them since I felt a lot better. The littlest once still was sick last night and now this morning everyone felt a whole lot better. My oldest one ate two bowls of cereal and the rest of the littlest one oatmeal after not eating much for two days.

G-8 Justin's Comet

Failed Block
I could not do it the way Jane did it, so I ended up putting some extra seams in there so I did not have to do a Y seam.

F-7 Star Struck

This was scan a little crooked..

G-6 Papa's Star

This block ended up a little wonky so I just added a little black around the border to even it out. See that star in the middle, that star is only 1 inch big with 17 pieces. Now that is a lot of little pieces.
