Shelia's Mini Quilt

Shelia (my DIL)  finished quilting her little quilt today.   She did a really nice job of quilting.   I had Shelia use a stencil for the centers so she would have a guide line for her feathers.   I had her practice feathers on paper for a couple of weeks to get it programed in  her memory.   The outer border she used a scallop ruler to mark her shapes to repeat the cc in the nine patch and then freehand the feathers.   NICE JOB!!!
This was some of the scraps  I gave her to play around with.  

I told her that she should give it to me for a Christmas gift to go with my big quilt that has been hanging for over a year that needs to be quilted.    She started on the LA  five months ago......   I think drawing out your designs on paper PPPPPP   really helps when you quilt on the LA. 

Back toTulips

This is where I left off.....   Oh look,  I see my initial 

This baby is staying on the LA until it is complete this week or next.   I promised myself that I would not take another quilt until this was finished.   Now I need for find my drawings ....... hmmmmmm!    I don't remember where I put them.   I guess I will clean house first this morning....

Another Surprise Package

I received this little package in the mail today.    It was a surprise package from Joyce in Missouri and what a surprise.   Battenburg napkins to go with my antique dishes,  napkins with a blue edge to go with my Royal Stafffordshire.   I have plans for each item.    Thank you so much  Joyce!!

                                                             They are soooo Beautiful.....

This was my EBay buy which I was disappointed..... It was made in China not England.   They stated it was a cookie jar,  I don't  think so.  It is small .... Guess I  will use it for tea storage.   At least it goes with my Hobby Lobby

New Quilter in the Family

My DIL started piecing last June after I gave her all my scraps.   I can not believe what she has made from the scraps.   A fast learner!!   I have another  quilt parnter to travel to the quilt shows and shops with me.
This a mini quilt that she made this week and is quilting it.   She has picked up the quilting quite fast.
This is her show and tell......
