THE THINGS I LOVE QUILT

So I have joined Quilting Fiesta, Betsy, who started this quilting with friends group, Cindy, and Toni in "The things I love Quilt."

These are some appliques that Sandy (who recently passed away) sent me, I am very happy I have these to put in my quilt.

Then Joanne from Splitting Stitches

sent me these and I made cupcakes...who doesn't love cupcakes?





These are from my Go cutter....





Then.....these....are from my new slice.......which will be another post in the makings, I have been so busy with company and other things that I have not been able to play much with it but my one son and I played with it briefly and this is what we came up with. It was a mother's day present to me...
I think I am going to love making this quilt and enjoy the friends in the group....if you want to join us...go see Betsy....tell her Barb sent ya. Let's have some fun. Maybe do a RRB....round robin Block, we we each make the same block and send it on? We can do all kinds of fun stuff...so stay tuned. Thanks Betsy!!

Oh how I would love to join. But alas, I find myself so busy with my promised UFOs and tons of company this summer. Your blocks are going to work into a wonderful quilt.

I've always thought I could make the girls the cutest quilt from the butterflies and dragon flies but since I don't have a GO I guess it will have to wait :) You really have done a good job here and this quilt is going to be really fun!

Those are so cute Barb.

Your quilt is going to be great! I love the appliques from Sandy.

Barbara said...

This will be a fun, whimsical quilt!

Joanne Lendaro said...

Can't wait to see what you come up with this time! ...and trimming those jelly rolls-yuck!! I've heard a ton of rumbling about the mis-cuts.

So many fun fabrics and patterns, the very essence of why we quilt.

If I didn't have 1,305,999 projects going on I would join in. Maybe it would make me learn to use my embroidery machine. Those blocks you have are a perfect way to start.

What a fun project. I'd love to join too however with a move in a few weeks, it's next to impossible. I can't wait to see how yours turns out though. Hugs

Wonderful things that you love!!! I really like the blue heart blocks.

Joanna said...

The name of the quilt itself makes me smile. You already have some nice appliques to include; it's going to be a lovely quilt. It looks like you are using American Samoa fabric, am I right?

Great blocks Barb, love those crabs, too fun. I would love to join in, but I have so many UFO's to work on. I'll be checking in on your progress.

Those blocks look so fun - me thinks you will have an overload of fun with that quilt.
