I have an amazingly long list of excuses for why I am not getting much in the way of quilting done.  You know...things like a couple vacations, work, a hit and run accident 300 miles from my home (600 from the car owner's home) that took a week to fix, distractions of buying non-quilt fabrics for clothing, work, family, Father's day, and chores.  There's more...but those are the highlights.

I did applique one of the blocks for this wedding quilt Anna is making for her son David.  (She made this block...I didn't take a photo of the one I worked on.)

You can also read the fabric details of our trip to Portland at Victoria Rose Quilts Blog.

 I have been slowly adding to the pile of melons for a Double Wedding Ring quilt for someone marrying a Marine.  Though not absolutely scarlet and gold, they do hint at the correct colors.

I have a growing mound of garment fabrics that I am determined to turn into summer dresses and tank tops.

I've been waiting for the sale at JoAnn's on McCall & Vouge patterns.  Sadly, I don't have a very good record on completing clothing projects.  I finish 1 for every 14 that I purchase fabrics, patterns and notions for.

Fingers crossed.   Maybe if I swear that I'll post about the clothing I'll get something done.

You've done it now - committed yourself 'on-line''d best get sewing!! Love the applique block... is the one you made similar colours etc. Like the way it is on-point on the 2 colour background.

Since when did a "hit and run" become a highlight of one's life? I hope no one was badly injured.

I absolutely love this Hawaiian quilt pattern. Is it her own design? Can't we see yours, too?
