STARTED MY TEXAS QUILT FRIDAY


Here is the center block. I dont know what is wrong with my camera but it is taking dull pictures....I will have to take time out and find out what the problem is.
I decided that I am going to take my time on this quilt, no pressure....and a welcomed UFO just as long as I stick to a plan,

SPRING 2009 QUILT BLOCK SWAP


This is what I have done with my nine blocks. A big thank you for Jen from Reanna Lily Designs for putting this swap together and to all the wonderful ladies that did an awesome block for me. I decided to make it a kids quilt. I am disappointed in the picture because the border is a rich, bright green and it looks dull in the picture. Oh well...it is bright...and I love it.

This was not suppose to post today....what is up with this?????? Hummmm Oh well...I lost the picture twice and so I guess I should be glad it posted.

3. Seeing my last son who is serving a mission for the LDS Church in two years.
4. Having grandbabies (won't someone get married????).
5. Seeing each of my sons happy in life and successful (happiness is success)
6. Getting a long arm machine.
7. Doing more for others ( I know that sounds corny but I just need to do more)

PICTURE DOES NOT DO THIS JUSTICE!!!

I have decided that I need to do three more squares...it will fit a king size bed wonderfully with the extra squares and borders. Of course, it will have to wait for another day....but it won't be forgotten.



Yes, if you remember correctly, or go back in older post, you will see that I was asking what background square to use. This is the dresden plate. This is what I decided on and, I am now wondering if I should take a sample with me when I go to the states to find a matching border, because I can't do both(not enough material) the 3 extra squares and border....will have to be one or the other.
