For weeks now Hubby and I have been traveling back n forth to hospital to see his dad. It's been one thing after another and I can see the wear on the hubby. Then thoughts are how much can an 88 yr old take. So emotional draining.
But lets face it you don't come here to read about my crazy problems you really want to see some eye candy.
It would be nice if I would post some pics of the ones of mine I finished, guess I need to get some pics of them. I have completed a couple of them. But it's time to get off here for now.

This Kathy's quilt. We went on a retreat a couple of years ago that Bonnie Hunter was the guest. She did two classes there and this was one of them. No I have not finished wither of mine yet. Yes I will someday and seeing Kathys' makes me think I need to get mine out. This one I quilted with paisleys. Kathy loves paisleys so I had to put them on the quilt.
This is a true charm quilt and belongs to Anita H. Local club did a charm swap (no I did not participate). Their goal was to have them done for our quilt show in August. (I belong to two clubs so two quilt shows) They could do any patch they wanted. Anita chose the thimble or sometimes called tumbler. I love how she color coordinated the angled rows. Such a charming quilt. Ha ha me made a funny.
And this is Jeans Charm quilt. She also did the charm swap and she used triangles. She cut her charms in half on diagonal and made two quilts. This one was random set. I love the scrappy love love love scrappy and this one is it.
This is Harriet's sampler. Isn't is lovely . (do you hear the Stevie Wonder music playing). Isn't is beautiful. I really like this and the blocks a wonderful. Wish I would have done this one. I'm sure it was a BOM at the local quilt shop.

Well I found my way to the big city of Boston. So many reasons to come here but the main one was to meet family members we have never an. Like or new grandson, Parker. Little Parker is now three weeks old. Photo is of the little guy on his quilt. I made for him. The blocks were made for the oldest grand child who is now14. Well obviously it never got done.lol. When we got the news of Parker coming I dug the blocks out and put it together. Doesn't he look little?
Well we had a bit of down time so I had to look up a quilt shop. And I found it! OMG here is little ole me,driving from one place in Waltham to Cambridge. So I want to say Monique and Manya were so great. Friendly friendly friendly. Fabric selection was great. I didn't check out books patterns rulers and such. Just stroked fabric I could have spent the day there but had the Hubster with me. I'm surprised he did so well. To all those that live in this area you are lucky to have such a great shop.
My loot 9 fat quarters. Got a plan but you will have to wait to see it.
