Quilt Barns and Tennessee Bound For My Birthday


Hello sweet friends.

Last week was my birthday.  My sweet hubby
came home and said he was taking some vacation
time and where did I want to go?


I have been wanting to go to Tennessee and just 
tootle around with no real plan.  


We stayed in Bon Aqua which is about 40
minutes from Nashville.  The name of this
B&B  is Twin Magnolia.  The host's are
Terri and Tabitha, they are a mother daughter 
team and made our stay awesome.

We did a little junking and sight seeing.


We tootled around just looking at the foliage
which is changing and so beautiful.  Spent a 
day in Nashville which was a blast.


I really wanted to see some quilt barns.  They are
not so easy to find.  lol!  This one is one of my favorites
I think it is near Lynchburg?   Sorry I can not remember.
We did a lot of driving the few days we where there.

I am back home and have been working on custom orders.
Just finished making a t-shirt quilt for a customer and it
is on the frame waiting for me to finish quilting it.  I will
show you pictures when I am finished.

Hope y'all are having a great week.

Maple Leaf Sew Sweet Bee Block


Happy Wednesday!!
Hope you are having a great week so far?


October's Queen Bee is Renee over at Sewn With Grace
She asked for a maple leaf block in reds, oranges, 
yellows and purples. This is the perfect block for 
this time of year.  It is a fun block to make and is
 going to make a beautiful quilt.
It would be sew much fun to see the season's change.
Here our leaves just turn brown and fall off crispy.

Wishing you a beautiful day.

Sewing Binding


Hello Chickadee's
It is finally starting to feel a little like Fall
here.  The nights and morning's are much 
cooler.  I usually have the house decorated
already for Fall but I am behind.


I am working on sewing the binding  down
on this sweet baby quilt for a customer.  Normally
I do my hand sewing at night in front of the TV 
with my sweet hubby.  I got some of Lori's
and I just love them.  They are sew handy to keep your
hand sewing supplies in for travel or just to keep
things together.


This is what we did this weekend.  My hubby rented
this lift so we could get to the taller places to paint our
house where we can not get with a ladder.  I did get up there
but was to chicken.  So he went up and painted this area.
We still have tons to do, I really want to be finished by
November.  Well a girl can dream.  lol!!

Hope you enjoy your day.

Hugs

Sew Sweet Bee, Some Quilting and Some Flags


Happy Friday Sweet Friends!

October has arrived so quickly.  I just
wish the cooler weather would arrive with
it.  lol!


September was Peggy's month to be Queen Bee.
She asked for this block, I think it is called
Stripes?  You can find the pattern on the Penny
Rose website.  Peggy asked us to make our blocks
with Bonnie and Camille fabrics.
(I really need to learn not to take pictures at night.)


I have been really blessed to be able to do
some customer quilting.  This customer
asked for snow flakes to be quilted on her quilt.
You know I got a picture of the quilting but
not the whole quilt before I mailed it back.  Geez. 
Hope you can see the quilting it was so much fun.

I am working other customer quilts right now
I will take pictures before I send them off.


While I was at retreat a couple weeks
ago I finished my flag blocks.  All I have to
do now is sew them into a quilt top.  I am
really looking forward to this one coming together.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend and that you get to do 
something that you LOVE.

Hugs
