new needle-turn applique quilt


I have started another quilt. This one will be needle-turn, love it, kinda like my Baltimore album patterns. The only fabric that will stay the same is the stem and red flower, everything else will change. I'm making 20 of these babies. The material is french general (love it so much)! Actually the flower is on the diagonal. This will be a twin size for the daughter's bed. The pattern is Romance in bloom...............

Baby quilt



Actually finished this a few weeks ago and just now posting. I used piano blocks for the border...but as you notice I DID NOT put the big squares in border corner. Too Lazy too cut the correct dimensions and took more time than I had.

On the way to Vermont






We had to stop in New York City for child #3...his voice acting........he is my son with Asperger's.........my dawling parked us in Hoboken, NJ and we took the path train in. It was also 100 degrees...just a side note. When we left NJ, our GPS decided we had to drive through the city anyway. It was suppose to be shorter.........Ha Ha and double Ha! "We" and I use that term loosely.....(the dawling was driving).......I was "helping" him....back to the story...we moved at a snail's pace....instead of arriving at 5pm we got in at 8pm. The pictures are above and start backwards because I suck at this blog thing and can't figure it out......secretly I don't care. More pictures later........Oh, before NY we did a stop over in Philly to see our sweet child #2......we ate here click word.....
My one and only daughter works at their market. She is an artist, went to Bard College, graduated in 2010. I miss visiting that area! I am rambling.......love you sweet child!!!!
