What I have Been Up to...

It has been snowing, blowing and COLD out this week! I had a trunk show at the Westfield Quilt Guild that was small, but very nice. It was wonderful that some of them came to see me even in the bad weather. Thank You Ladies.

I pieced the next block for Foolish Goose Tracks and got the directions done. Here is a peek...(no trying to figure it out Penny!)

Real easy, huh!

The ladies on Quilt Chat have inspired me to pull out some projects that have been put away. So I found this project, in a bag (I am sure none of you do that), it was cut and ready to sew. I got the first set of blocks done and 1 of the second. Here they are...

Have you ever had seen something and just knew you wanted to do it...eventually? I feel that way about a Grandma's Flower Garden. I ordered pieces from the english paper piecing web site and have started my version. I couldn't make a traditional one...oh noooo that would be too easy. So I am doing something a little different. I plan on making this Queen size when it's all said and done. I figure it will take 4995 pieces! And yes, I am doing it by hand. I have set a goal and want to be done with the top in 2009. We shall see how that goes. :)

Happy Quilting!


  1. LOL first of all I have to laugh..Penny you have been told!!
    I am trying to get the first part done still!! it looks awesome Heather
    I also love the "non traditional" garden..that should keep you busy for a while..

  2. Tag your it!

    Heather, I have tagged you for Six Picture Meme, come on over!

    You have been busy! I chose my fabrics for the BOM project, but didn't star it yet, but soon!

    Happy Quilting!


  3. Oh Ms. Heather, LOL How easy it would be to draw out in my EQ program. However, I have 30+ quilt tops sitting here waiting to become quilts and I have promised them they would be soon. So, this and one other bom are the only sewing I am doing for awhile. I wouldn't want to spoil all my sewing fun now. I'm going to be a good girl and wait for the installment to just like everyone else.


  4. Love the Hexagons!

    I just started my first hexagon quilt. I've wanted to try English Paper Piecing for some time now. I was inspired by the new blog called, The Great Hexagon Quilt-Along.

  5. Good luck with your goal Heather!
