This week's theme is: TWIN SIZE QUILTS


As I begin to write this post it occurs to me: "I've never made a twin size quilt!"
My daughter and I have starting discussing doing such as her boys get bigger and she moves them into bunk beds. So though I still have a while, it doesn't hurt to start looking for ideas now, right?Mattress Sizes. Good to know
This skateboard quilt found at KS Designgirls Blog does inspire me to start collecting some design ideas to share with my daughter and grand guys as they get older.

Let the binding begin.....

I had a productive week of quilting and getting binding sewn on.
Honestly, hand sewing binding is one of my very favorite parts of quilting. I don't mind seeing a pile begin. Our house will be filled with family in another week, followed by our Summer family vacation. These will provide the perfect stitching to enjoy during patio time and on the road traveling.
Hope you too have some happy stitching to keep you busy during these dog days of Summer.

6th Annual Piggy Bank Challenge BEGINS!

Many of you are not only familiar with the water jug vs the pig competition that goes on in our household, but have now been a part of it for the past five years!!
Click the picture to read more!
It started our innocent enough when five years ago I bought this little silver piggy bank to collect laundry change. Well, a year later, he was full and I cashed in at $102.45! I, of course, put my new found "savings" to good use and stocked up on fabric! So fun!!


Well, once my husband found out how much I saved, he started his own "bank of change". But also read somewhere that if you throw in a dollar or even a five dollar bill once in awhile, you can literally double your savings.

So here we are six years later sharing continuing the challenge with you.
