I got lucky for my first Sew Mama Sew giveaway day! I won some beautiful hand dyed fabric from Malawi courtesy of
Forty 20 Four and a $25 Gift Voucher from Skye Reve Fabrics courtesy of Chasing Cottons!
The latest giveaway I’ve entered is over at Threaded Mess – she’s giving away all kinds of goodies to celebrate hitting 101 followers! Congrats Natalie!
I hand delivered this quilt to my grandmother today!
It has a lot of the same fabrics as
my 1st quilt, which I made for her mother (shown on the left in the picture below).
I used a Bento Box pattern I obtained from Trudi Skene. I would link to her blog, but it has been taken down since. I machine pieced and quilted it myself.
I finally drove to a quilt shop in a city big enough to carry a decent selection of quilting books & picked up
Elizabeth Hartman‘s book that I’ve been wanting!

You’ve seen those “House Divided” flags, license plates and other stuff, right?
I graduated from Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) and married a graduate of the University of Georgia. I could not find a garden flag with our schools combined, so I ended up buying the two flags above and making my own. I really wanted to keep the “HOUSE DIVIDED” in the middle, but the letters were more spread out on one flag, so they didn’t match up.
I made this lap quilt in 2007 for my great grandmother’s 100th birthday. She was a quilter and always making little sewing and quilting goodies for me and my sister.
I used the Scrappy Bargello tutorial by Bonnie K. Hunter located
here. I pieced and quilted it by machine.
I’m sharing this quilt as part of
Bloggers’ Quilt Festival hosted by Amy’s Creative Side!
I picked up these beauties last week!
It may not look like it, but she’s helping me organize my scraps!
Here’s a quilt pattern I just created in Excel…not sure if I’ll actually make it or not but it could be cute.
