March is a great month. It is the time when winter gives into spring and you can see pretty little flowers peeking thru the snow. March is National Quilt Month celebrated with amazing Quilt Shows sprinkled through out the country. And most importantly March is a month-long celebration of my birthday! 🎉🎂😜

Using Itty-bitties!

I love using these itty-bitties from FQS. I turned 33 pieces into  a beautiful block!

Happy Hearts Video

I'm getting ready to do my first tutorial tomorrow! It's rather exciting, my niece is coming to help me out.  See...  I posted a picture of my Happy Heart quilt, in a quilt group I belong to online, that I'm going to give a friend (still need to add borders) and I received such a positive outpouring of quilt-love and interest about the pattern.  I promised I would try to write down the pattern but after trying to write it I realized a video would be easier.

This is the link to a great chart for setting triangles:

Wow 9 months!

Life sure is demanding.  Last November my daughter got engaged and my life was set aside so this new Wedding-planning life could become the all-encompassing, diva-beast I've heard stories about.  It did not disappoint.
She was married on May 30th, took a month to honeymoon and move to VA and slowly my little forgotten, boring life is resurfacing.  Ahhhh, how lovely to be learning about me again...oh yes, I love to quilt! I'd almost forgotten...and look, there's a new big empty room batting it's eyelashes at me saying "come inside, rest....bring your sewing machine".   Be still my heart.

Oh, all-in-all, I lost a total of 40lbs. I still need to lose another 20-30 but it's not on my priority list. Recuperate, regenerate, stabilize and breathe are on my to-do list right now.

Enough for now...I'm going to pour some tea.

Another 10

Down another 10 lbs, and I'd like to lose 10 more for Christmas.
Went to Lancaster this past weekend on a mystery quilt retreat, here's the result:
