First off I want to thank everyone for sounding in on my Love Ida quilt. I was so happy to have such an unanimous decision. I was leaning that way but was worried that I might be being lazy. Glad to hear it is the right design decision and it's the easy one also. What a bonus.
Also a bonus is my newest finsih. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have finished Mary's Garden. It turned out even better than I imagined. I love all it's bright, happy scrappiness.
Makes me smile first thing in the morning and is so welcoming at night. To celebrate I'm linking up with Sarah's Whoop Whoop. Make sure you check out what others are whooping about.

Yesterday I started a piano key border for my Love Ida Quilt. I thought it was the way I wanted to finish this quilt. But the more I got done the busier it got and the less I liked the idea.
I thought if I continued the green diamonds. Giving a little more space for the eye to rest that it would be better. I like it.

Sometimes you need a little play as a reward for a finishing a tough job. Every year for the past six years I've been in charge of Jr. High carpool. This year was especially tough. I've been blessed with more wonderful youth in my life in recent months. Love them all and don't want to leave anyone out. This being the case carpool was a little tricky. After finally getting everyone's schedule to work for getting 15 kids to and from school. I popped me some kettle corn and grabbed a pile of scraps.

This month's Scrap Squad quilt was a fun one for me. I love the illusion of curvy lines and the movement they create.
Rummaging through my scrap bins to find the right fabrics is always a favorite past time.

Registration has started for Quilt St. George. I'm excited to be able to go this year. The weather there will be so much nicer than what it is where I live. I'm excited to meet new people and make new friends. I will be teaching the following classes.
Sunshine on a Cloudy Day.
Hope to see you there.

I think it is great fun to see the many ways you can put the same block together. You may remember when I was playing with the free four all block here. Half square triangles and log cabins are a couple of blocks that are fun to do this with. I've had this quilt on my rocking chair. The majestic mountain border has been speaking to me. Telling what fun it would be to play with it's pieces. So I made a few.
I think I will have to make some more of these blocks.
