Finished Top

Yesterday, I finished the top of my 12" mini quilt.  Now comes the fun of hand quilting it - a perfect way to spend a cold, wet day inside!

Mini Quilt Challenge

Bumble Beans Inc. is having a mini quilt challenge.  Our quilts must measure 12" square and contain "made fabric".  I have started on mine using blue, green and pink batiks from my scrap bag.  The center star measures 3 1/2" and the current size is 7 1/2".

Fun Fun Fun!!

A Day in the Life . . .

On Danny Gregory's Facebook page "Everyday Matters", artists have been painting the little events that happen during their day.  I decided to give it a try yesterday and here is my result.  It was harder than I expected but I did have fun making a simple Sunday into a watercolor page.

Last week, we got a new Mac computer and a new HB printer.  It has been quite an experience switching from a PC to a Mac.  We have taken classes and promptly forgotten everything we learned.  It took me days to get familiar with the printer.

So this is my first attempt at posting on the blog with the new system - hope it works!!!
Wow!!  There's my photo!!  Yesterday, my husband and I joined our friends for San Diego's Little Italy Festa.  The chalk art was fantastic, the booths were filled with all kinds of goodies to purchase and we enjoyed a great Italian lunch at Mona Lisa Restaurant - what a great day!!

October Block

October's Block of the Month is called "Chaos Star" and despite the name, it went together easily - even while using so many different fabrics.

I love these colors together!!
