I'm All Over The Place!



There are so many things that I keep thinking I will put on the blog to share and then I get busy with other things and never get back here to share what I thought I wanted to share.  Now my mind is drawing a blank!
The above photo is how far along I've gotten on the house pattern gifted to me from Karen.  I'm really liking them and need to get back to it.  I have many other distractions in quilting and my real life home building plans.  I feel like a dog seeing a SQUIRREL!  I mean seriously...I've already whipped up my June Schnibble called Dulcinea and it just needs quilted.  I'll share that later though.  See what I mean...I jumped from houses to pinwheels and the houses are much more me!
 Client quilts is another that I've been horrible about sharing.  This pattern is called Jellystone and quilted with maple leaves for Nicole.
I love, love, love the colors and those bears paws.  She used both cottons and beautiful homespuns...so me!
 This is another gorgeous quilt belonging to Nicole called Shiloh.  Nicole simply wanted an all over design called Harvest Time.  This one is a beauty and her piecing was absolute perfection!
I'm unsure if you can see the pumpkins and leaves quilting but oh so cute and perfect for that Autumn quilt.
 The goat is for Shelley.  Shelley and I've been blogging friends for years and have bantered back and forth on just how much our yards could use a goat.  I just had to make her this little guy and snapped a photo before I was finished sewing binding down and then after I mailed it to her I realized I'd forgotten to get a better picture. 
To make this little picture quilt easier to hang I stitched two corners on to the back before sewing down my binding.

.....now I'm off to review the surveyor's plan of house placement on the lot....SQUIRREL!

Good to hear someone else bounces around from project to project along with juggling the happenings of daily living! Love the house blocks! The maple leaf quilting is so gorgeous! And that's one of the cutest goats I've ever seen...

Loris said...

Well, you are still getting a lot done! Love the goat and the bear paws and the houses! The excitement of building your home is probably giving you some good energy :-) It is thrilling to be sure!

Darlene said...

All over the place is not a bad thing! Me thinks you're having lots of fun. ((Hugs))

Anne said...

They are all wonderful. If you didn't bounce from project to project, you'd get bored. Just look at it that way! :)

Jeanna said...

Love the quilting especially the pumpkins...so cute.

I'm bouncing all over today as well but need to settle down before the week starts. At least your bouncing from one GOOD thing to another :)

Have a great one!

Cindy said...

Oh, how I love the "hangers" you added to the back of the Little Quilt! I love this. Actually saw it many times on Pinterest and decided to do it this way for my next Mini.

Oh, Mary - I LOVE LOVE LOVE house quilts and the fabrics in these house (homes) are simply fabulous!!

You do quality work my friend!!

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

LOL nothing wrong with being all over the place~ it works for squirrels. :-) Love the quilts you quilted and your houses! -they are so me too! ;-) Have a fun day!

AnnieO said...

Completely agree about the squirrel syndrome! It's easy to get distracted when playing with beautiful fabric and quilts! Your goat is too cute:).

great quilting!
you crack me up with that little goat quilt. :0)

Vivian said...

I never get tired of seeing your creative quilted projects, whether yours or those for clients. I especially appreciate seeing the quilting designs you use. (I'm learning all the time.)
My husband used to talk about moving to the country, getting a few goats, and livin' the good life with our livestock. Goats are cool :)

You poor thing! I don't know how you can still think straight.

The quilts are all lovely. The houses will be beautiful and the goat is terrific.

Slow down and smell the roses. I think you need it.

Mary said...

Ohhhh, to finish one project before starting another. That is a wish worth wishing for! Your projects and quilting are all wonderful!

Janet O. said...

Wonderful house blocks--scrumptious colors!
And those customer quilts are gorgeous. I want quilts like that all over my house!
Cute little goat.
I got a giggle out of "SQUIRREL!" : )

Leeanne said...

Love the house blocks!!

Cheryl said...

Perfect...a house quilt for your new home!
Beautiful quilting as usual and the goat quilt is a hoot!

Sue said...

Busy girl ! Just love those house blocks and your maple leave quilting is just gorgeous on that quilt.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

I got some goats for you. :) Maizie and Daisy. We had a 3rd but we had to put her down a few months ago. They aren't allowed to roam the yard though. They have a nice pen and have a good time eating all the weeds and stuff in there. They love poison ivy!

Nicole said...

I could not be happier with my quilts! You do such beautiful work Mary, and your quilting adds so much to my patchwork!

Sue-Anne said...

Gorgeous quilts and I agree with you about the Bear Paw quilt, just stunning. I love the goat too!

andsewon said...

Love your wee homes all in rows! Bouncing around job to job is a good thing at times. For me it is 'normal' behavior!;-) So exciting about the house plans and where to begin the build!!!

Kaaren said...

As the old saying goes, if you want something done, give it to a busy person! That fits you to a tee, Mary!

Lots of loveliness coming out of Quilt Hollow. So much inspiration.

Jo said...

I've been in a squirrel mode too. Is it just that we have too much to do?!?!

Cheryl said...

So much inspiration here....and beautiful work as always!

Lori said...
