My grandaughter, Samantha wanted to change her bedroom over to black and white. For Christmas we gave her a black furry mat for the side of her bed and a black table lamp. For her birthday we gave her a black and white bed set. I was finding it difficult to find black and white fabric to make a quilt for her bed, so I made a pillow from her bed from a Don't Look Now pattern called Pretty 'n Pink.  This was so much fun. I didn't get a picture of the back, but I added two appliques just to dress up the back. And yes Samantha, Nanny still owes you a quilt.
Thanks for stopping by.

Real Deal Quilt Coming Along


real deal August 8 copy

I’m on holidays, so I have had some time to work on my Real Deal Quilt. The center is sewn together, now I need to make 184 flying geese blocks to surround this quilt. This will be my first attempt trying me new wing clipper ruler by Deb Tucker. I know the frame around the picture looks a little strange, but I’m also trying to learn Photoshop Elements 10 while I’m off work. I might have to take a year off work to learn this program, but maybe playing with it a little each day, I’ll figure it out.
