Filling in time

I got my pieces cut out for the mystery quilt I signed up for, pinned the queen size quilt for my sister so what to do???
I decided to work on the lattice quilt that I had started earlier. Here is what it looks like so far.
As you can see I am trying appliqueing. Those blocks on the side are going to be butterflies once I get them finished. I am going to put the same dark green as the binding so think that it will match great. Here is another picture of the quilt on the floor.  The butterflies must stand out as my cats keep sniffing them!
I also found a pattern for a baby quilt on about.com in the baby quilting page. I think that it will look pretty good. Easy pattern to follow....
I will put a frame around each of these blocks so as to make them stand out more...

I am so enjoying spending time with the machine


For NQD I finished sewing steps 1,2,&3 for the Mystery Quilt project. I also played around with something that I seen on one of the quilt blogs that I had seen.


I also managed to get the quilt top all pieced together and am planning on going out this week to get the backing for it.  My sister and her daughter are visiting for the week, so I will be enlisting their help in pinning the sandwich all together. Many hands....
I also getting started on a scrap quilt. What do you think?

I like the fact that I can use the design wall to hold all squares until I can move them to be more pleasant.  I have a lot of triangles the same size to this is only going to stop growing when I run out of the lattice material.

Okay, to start...

This is the very first blog post.  I am going to put some of my craft ideas onto this white space so that I have some record at what I have been up to over the years. 

Here are some pictures of quilts that I have made over the years that I will willingly put here. 
These quilts are the beginning I hope of some creative basics.
