This week's theme is: BAGS

This little charm pack bag continues to be one of my favorites.
 It sure does bring back fond memories of when we had a local quilt shop and I'd take Saturday afternoon classes to learn new things. I miss those days. I miss having a local quilt shop and I miss the friends you make taking these kinds of classes. Funny how things change of the years.

It's FOOTBALL Season!

Aughhhhh....we all love those ultimate quilting moments. You know the ones when someone just reallllly loves the quilt you made them. They cherish is. They USE IT. They love it.
Our daughter and SIL are in the middle of packing for a big move (Meme Note: A move that will now make them only 2 1/2 hours away instead of their current 3 1/2 hours.) Anyhoo, while packing my daughter told our grand guy he gets to keep out one quilt for the transition. Annddd he chose:

Four years old.

One year old. 
The best part was his reasoning:
  "Mom it's football time and I want it to watch football with dad!"
Yep...one of those ultimate moments we love!

Raw Edged Flowers....Washed!

How did it get to the middle of September already! I haven't been sewing and have only spent a few evenings during the week binding this beauty. I promised I'd post an update once these raw-edged flowers were washed and quite honestly this quilt has quickly become our very favorite! It received it's inaugural washing yesterday and after two rounds in the dryer I finally hung it out in the afternoon sunshine to get the rest of the drying process done.

I really like these scrappy, raveled flowers:


 I surprised my husband with it on our bed when he got home from work. He immediately said: 
"This is my very favorite quilt. I love how it brightens up the room."
Yes, he made my day!

Tuesday Archives Update

Val's Quilting Studio
I gradually coming out of my September "Back to School Fog". Defined as having to take naps after school with little energy to even stitch once evening rolls around. It takes about a month  to get settled into routine and my energy where I'm now...ready to get going again. I've updated our Tuesday Archives on the sidebar. Thanks for your patience at my lack of consistency lately. 

Some upcoming September projects that I'm looking forward to sharing with you include a self-designed super-hero quilt for our grand guy's upcoming fourth birthday and a quick dinosaur charm pack quilt for our second little guy due to arrive around the end of November. 
(Isn't quilting for little ones the best!
 Happily creating and quilting once again....

This week's theme is: ZIPPERS!
First, when did September arrive? All of a sudden, I get back to work after a long weekend and it's the 5th already! It's always so wierd when that happens. Anyhooo....welcome September! I have a lot planned for you. But let's first get started with getting back on track with the ol' linky here.
As it sometimes happens, when preparing for our weekly linky, I get "lost" reading on the internet.
I came across The Zipper Lady this morning, and quite honestly didn't know there was so much to know about zippers as I found myself "down a rabbit hole" as I explored her website. Sooo...
