I'm on a Roll!

Now that I've finished the Lollipop quilt, I can't seem to stop sewing!  It's starting to get addicting for me!  I started this Skinny Verna table runner yesterday and finished it up today with the binding!  It was so quick and easy!  I love it.  I am using it as a runner on my piano.


                                                 I can't wait to start something new now!!

Lollipop Quilt Done!!

                                   I am so happy my son likes it!  Here he is, holding his new quilt!  He even picked out the backing fabric.  We were at Beverly's and I told him I was looking for a fabric for the back of his Lollipop Quilt and he saw this and said, Look, Mom, Lollipops!  So this was the one he wanted.

My Little Prince and Princess

My daughter, Caitlyn, made these cute little crowns for her brother and herself out of paper and tape.  She is so creative!  Here is a rare moment when they are getting along.

Lollipop Quilt

My New Year's resolution is that I want to learn how to quilt.  I don't know anyone that can teach me.  So I'm learning by the internet and from books.  I'm thinking about taking some quilting classes. 

I've attempted to make a quilt for my daughter and I'm not happy with the way it looks.  This Lollipop Quilt is going to be for my son.  Hopefully, it will turn out better than the one I made for my daughter.  I'm at the part where I will use the fusible web to attach the lollipops to the squares.  So far, it's really easy and lots of fun.  I've been enjoying every step of the process.
