Quilting is my passion. The ability to be creative with colorful fabric just makes me smile. Of course, equally joyful is the love of my grandchildren. What could be better?
Food for thought.
Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

4 out of 4 plus 4 (cornerstones)...done, done, done!!!
Four corner scallops.....
and this completes the quilt top.
Do you think even though I started this quilt in 2008 and then put it away for a year because of those darn scallops (that weren't so darned afterall) and then finished the top in 2010, that I should rip off '08 and make it '10?
Now to decide whether or not I have enough imagination, patience and the fortitude to hand quilt this baby or if I should send it off. It would get done a whole lot sooner if I sent it off, but with all the work I have done, handquilting seems the way to go.
Anyways, can you tell that my giddiness is making me do that quiltng "happy dance"? I can't believe this quilt top is done. I can now start the next UFO...which is probably a binding or two for the last two quilts that went to the quilter. Beyond the Cherry Trees BOM is due out on the 10th. I still have a few days.
I am known as Mimi by my four grandsons. They are 13, 10, 8 and 3 1/2 years old. They are what life is all about. I recently retired from my office job. Now I am just loving being a grandma who loves to quilt and is once again dabbling in knitting, I am a longarmer and an APQS retailer. I can see retirement being very busy!
