Piece & Plenty Quilted

I played around with an app.  I'm not a pro but they have free fun ones I download to try.  If I don't like it I simply delete it.
I tried to get a photo so you could see the bread basket quilting I did on this Piece & Plenty quilt.  The next photo shows the quilting better.
This was the first time I used this pattern and I'll be using again soon!  It is a fast one to stitch too!
Check out my new hutch!  It's new to me anyway.  I bought it at a moving sale.  I'll soon have quilts and things in it.
Lastly, I have to share this photo of my younger son and his gal.  She is on his lap as my husband drove.  It was from just around the corner after they loaded my new hutch.  My son sent me a snap chat and I was quick enough to click and save it!   A snap chat is a very quick photo that you can only see for so many seconds before it disappears unless of course your quick to copy it.  LOL!!!!

Random Everything and Quilting Sale

I enjoyed the warmth we had this past week.  I'll be bringing in this beauty tonight and I've covered my new plants in preparation for tonight's freeze warning and possibly snow!

Have you missed me in Blogland?  A few of you email me away from my blog and know about my life other than I'm a longarm quilter.  I've made some wonderful friends through blogging; even meeting and visiting some of you.  I'll keep blogging but I have found most of the bloggers are posting several times a day to Instagram.  It's fun, fast and easy way but does lack details.  Here's a quick snap shot of my Instagram.
The top left photo is of the cancer center.  That's where I spend a lot of time with DH.  He is doing remarkably well considering we were at the ER two weeks ago!  He spiked a temp of 102.3 and had pneumonia.

One week previous to my husband's ER visit I got a call from my youngest college student son with heart problems.  Long story shortened.....three hospitals, two ambulance rides, a stay over in the hospital he will be fine. This is the son who loves to play a few pranks and shows me how to properly use Instagram and Snapchat!  So with that said take a look at my Instagram photo and you'll see my own prank on his truck.  He does love cats but vandalizing the truck not so much.  LOL

Awhile back I quilted this quilt and extra small pieced rectangles for Jobi to make matching shams.  I love the idea and snagged this photo from her to share with you the final result.
I love it and the metal bed!

One more photo I wanted to share is these works of art Jobi whipped up in just a day and a half!
Jobi told me these were made to remind her of her own kitties and they are a pattern Jobi made!  The joints are beads so the legs and arms move, beaded tails, buttonhole detailed faces and just dang cute!  My favorite is the gray one. They are just different and make me smile!  I think she should sell them on Etsy!

I finished piecing this Sweet Treasures BOM and added to my own quilt tops waiting to be quilted.  It's a good size so this is the best photo I could get for now.

I'm offering 10% off on all edge to edge quilting service on quilt tops in my possession through end of May.  Contact me for full details at
