gotta love Kim Diehl....

Finished this one this last week and delivered it to the quilters yesterday. Actually I took 2 to her! Stopped at a quilt show in San Diego also. North County Quilters had a show going on in San Marcos. Oh my goodness... What a tiny little thing it was. Then of course I had to stop in Sewing Machines Plus... Hhmmmmm, getting closer to getting a machine. Thought I would give ol' Betsy one more try on something small. Started off good, then I spent 2 hrs un-ripping everything. Not sure if it was the appliqué that was throwing it off or all the seams. But I pressed and pressed and it was pretty darn flat so I just don't know.

Punkins ...

There was a class at Country Loft that I missed where they made these adorable punkins. I just had to have the pattern so I ordered it. I can't wait till I get it. I just love these things!

Pomegranates......

I de-seeded 14 pomegranates today in a matter of like 10 minutes...
Fresh fruit for my morning smoothies and 5 containers in freezer.. 1 per week. I'm set!






I tried juicing them, but it was wasting more than the juice being made.

Last Monday night...

Forgot to share pictures from Last Monday night...













Aren't they just adorable!!? The bottom one is a new twist on a rag quilt. Who woulda thunk to make strips across instead of all the silly squares... Love it, but not enough to make another... I have had my fill of those!

Trying to fix it..

I'm still trying to fix the layout of the pictures on the blog...
Even though it says centered.. It's still showing to the left...
So my layouts are all wonky...
Well try again later..



❤️��❤️

I am doing the Kim Deihl quilt of the month...
1st month.. Made this...






Still needs to be quilted...
Then, the 2nd month, made this one..






It also, needs to be quilted...
With the leftovers from those... I made this...






I just bought the black fabric for borders. Because... I am going to appliqué...





All kinds of flowers, leaves and vines all around the edge. I am going to wait till after its quilted so I don't have to customize it and I can just add them right on top! Pretty smart, huh?
The reason I am getting backed up on quilting is, I am seriously thinking about a new machine. Mine is very, VERY finicky these days. More of a hassle than pleasure to quilt. Someone mentioned a 15" Juki.. Anyone heard good or bad things about them??

Squaring up little 1 1/2" squares. Oh I hope they turn out ok. You know those little ones sometimes do not like me

Quiltfest....

At the Palm Springs Convention Center was the BEST quilt show ever. I have not 1 thing to complain about. I wish, hope, and pray they return every year. It was almost like a mini 'road' or Long Beach' show.
The quilts were amazing! The were filled with hundreds of quilts throughout the globe! Lectures, workshops, vendors... Just awesome!!
For example... One display they had on quilts...















If you get a chance, go to www.quiltfest.com and check out where there future shows are and see if there will be near a show near you. These 2 brothers did an amazing job.. 2 thumbs up!!!
