A lovely ride . .

Wow what a ride it has been.  

The Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day week was super exciting.  I am now following so many people via blogger, twitter, and facebook {oh my}

If anyone knows a better way to get instagram followers please drop me a line.  It's a bit more difficult {for me} to follow people there.

I've also gleaned a bunch of new followers - HELLO

The winner of the Simply Color jelly roll I had offered up is going to wing it's way up into Canada. The winner is Kim @ TatjanaGrace she blogs over Tatjana Grace at she responded to my email within 48 hours. . whoop!

I can't wait to see what she makes of this lovely fabric.

I also wanted to share a project that I completed with two of my favorite quilters, Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and Jenna from Sew Happy Geek. Also, we {being Melissa} enlisted Jaye from Art Quiltmaker to assist with the delivery.

Susan from History Quilter shared months ago the loss of her father.  Oh how deeply that struck me as I still miss my father who passed over 2 years ago.  We came up with the stunning idea to make a quilt!  Jenna made the quilt design of the Navy Star that she adapted to be huge! And we all pitched in to creating a whole quilt.  Thanks to Melissa to finishing the entire project machine quilting,binding, and all.
Here are the efforts of a quilt tribe. . .

I'm so happy to help make this quilt for such a lovely lady.  Go check out the more photos and Susan's reaction of the finished product here.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. . I'm off to drink some more water and feel better.  Sewing is on the top of my list when I can think about opening the sewing room door.


  1. Gorgeous! What a great quilt tribe! I wish instagram had a better computer interface. My little ipod doesn't take very good pictures, and I rarely use it for "surfing"...

  2. Susan is such a sweet person and you guys blessed her with a fabulous quilt!

  3. It was so amazing to be part of the quilt tribe and help make the quilt. What a blessing it has been for me.

  4. That was a very sweet idea, it always helps us to feel we are making someone else feel a little better on their road. I read Susan's post and you r gesture meant so much to her!
    Karma, sometimes she loves us.

  5. That is a stunning quilt and a lovely present.

  6. Such a beautiful quilt and a wonderful remembrance! :)

  7. So sweet and such a beautiful quilt. I loved reading Susan's post about her new Navy Quilt too. I'm sure she will cherish it forever :)
