Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

What a lovely weekend.....

The weather was great, the fireworks were beautiful, family get togethers were fun and I even had time to work on my quilts.

I made a scappy binding for my very old 9-patch UFO  and completed it.  I sewed several scraps together that I still had gathered for this quilt to make the binding and in one day I sewed it on by machine AND hand sewed it down. 

You can see several different fabrics that I used in the binding in this picture.  A picture of the whole quilt will have to wait until another time when I have extra hands to hold this queen-sized quilt up.  

Then the topper today was when I got home to a package from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  I hadn't ordered anything, but this is what was inside it. 

A jelly roll called Bunny Tales. 

Well, wouldn't you know....when I bought the magazine for the pattern Babes in Farmland, there was this one other quilt in there that I thought I just had to make.  

I think this fabric will work perfectly for that. 

What do you think?

I am thinking this might just be the ticket for this quilt. 

Thank you Sandy for the nice little surprise.  

Now to decide which UFO is next...hopefully something that I can complete in a short period of time as that gives me a great deal of see something completed.  

Stay tuned!


  1. Looks perfect to me! Did Sandy know what you want to make? Anyway, I do like seeing friendships carrying on.

  2. Wow, a queen-sized UFO finish. Way to go! Can't wait to see more of it. LOVE the pattern you chose for the jelly roll. That will be so cute!
