HERE it is--#2 already...this was a little more challenging--I conquered the 16th of an inch things, but I couldnt get the mitered corners to come out right so I gave up and did the standard thing...I am VERY happy with the outcome. of course, I am using Thimbleberries fabrics except for the background..I didnt have anything here I was happy with, not to mention that what I had was given to me and I didnt want to iron it, so I went to the shop and the background I used caught my eye...

I have also been making other things and this is a bingo prize I won for worst card-rotflmao the little pillow..I love it! the Kansas Trouble block is for my reproduction fabric -Civil War era quilt

That is it for right now--Tomorrow is Thimbleberries club--my favorite Saturday of the month!

Judy L Star B O M

I surfed around and looked at all the STAR BOM's on others' blogs and they are terrific! wonderful job ladies!! I do believe everyone has made wonderful choices for colors. I am looking forward to the next block!

I passed the week away sewing, hanging out, or visiting family. I think our enthusiasm went down the tubes, no rains in our area in two weeks--oh boohoo--this is Monsoon season ans I am wondering where they went..most of July almost led me to believe I was living someplace else...

I sure am glad last week is over..many of you know our niece passed away in her sleep at age 37 of unknown causes (toxicology results not back yet). The services were wonderful and it was a bright warm morning..She is going to be missed.

presently working on Judy's B O M, a 5 1/2 inch Dresden plate (well, will make 110 when all is said and done) , a dear Jane, the TB club big quilt and quarterly projects, a couple crazy quilt projects and a civil war era quilt...there are other wips but I dont believe I need name them all--you get the idea!
