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.

#8 Cherry Trees has sprout!
Well, it took a little time for this one to come to fruition, but not because it was hard or anything like that. The weather has just been beautiful for working outdoors and I have been shopping for a wedding dress with my youngest daughter which by the way, we did find and order.
I did get the layout drawn up, all the freezer paper pieces traced and cut out, background cut out and finally had all the pieces ironed on their respective fabrics; and this is the result.
There sure were a lot of leaves, but once I started working on them, they didn't take long at all since they really are pretty small. Don't forget, these blocks are cut at 17". I promise to get a picture up soon of all 8 blocks laid out together.
Next on the agenda is to get the binding on the Zen quilt that came back from the quilter last week, so I need to get busy on that. I want to take it to my retreat in June for show'n'tell.
Hope your weather is as good as ours is here in Michigan.
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!
