I have been busy over the last two months. Our guild has a service arm, Comforting Quilts. We get together once a month to sort, organize, and finish up the many quilts that our members donate. Comforting quilts then distributes these quilts over the course of the month. Here are my donation quilts:
Keep on sewing, everyone!
I started Smith Mountain Morning at Bonnie’s workshop at Northwest Quilters. I decided to cut everything out and sew it while on my trip to California.
I used my mother’s sewing machine.
I finished all the blocks!
It’s time to explore the great outdoors!
Time to eat breakfast next to the campfire while playing Risk!
Enjoy time with your family!!!!
It’s time to see Grandpa and Grandma, and uncles and aunts and cousins!
We toured the USS Iowa- a battleship docked in San Pedro.
We partied it up at Dave and Busters!
We watched a hometown 4th of July parade followed by fireworks.
Spent the day at the beach with our extended family
Watched our cousin score at basketball!
Caught up with old friends
And had a great time!
Summertime is the time for sightseeing :-)
This weekend we traveled to the Oregon Zoo.
Some were pacing……
We had a great time!
I finally finished last year’s mystery quilt
I quilted it on my 1952 Singer 15-91 named Priscilla :-)
I have a lot of parts leftover- maybe a matching baby quilt? Or pillow shams??
I found a coordinating backing :-)
Ready for more fun this year!
Happy Quilting, everyone!
We have been waiting for Bonnie for a long time! After having such a good time at the Portland Block Party, I couldn’t wait to take the 3 workshops that Bonnie had at Northwest Quilters: Cathedral Stars, Smith Mountain Morning, and Love Shack.
We had such a good time! Bonnie even used my machine for the demo.
Here are my blocks:
I ended up making 2 hearts because I messed up on my first heart and made 2 left sides!!! So, I had to make 2 right sides, of course :-)
Bonnie is coming back to Hillsboro in 2017! I can’t wait!
Here is another scrap quilt I finished: Quail’s Nest in a Log Cabin
Another beautiful day here in Oregon! We are off on another day trip- this time to the Oregon Iron Company.
This place is full of history- check it out! It is right on the Willamette River.
With picturesque walking trails….
We saw a blue heron and a baby bald eaglet fly over us.
