Scrappy Stars Quilt

Liz has made another great scrappy quilt but this time with a lot of Halloween fabrics. During the quilting process I look at the design very closeup. Then when I take a picture I’m so surprised. What a pretty quilt, full of interest and movement and lots of gorgeous color.

This quilt is very large so it is draped over my longarm.

Used Simplicity pantograph and Quilters Dream Wool batting.

Wonder how many pieces in this quilt.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mods Doll Panels

I love these doll panels. They have themes (like A Walk In The Woods) and such cute details. I decided to make Mr. and Mrs. Bunnikins for my granddaughter Juliet. Mrs. has a skirt with 3 pockets that hold 3 baby bunnies. Mr. has a bow tie and shorts with suspenders.

I’ve never been good at stuffing things. They’re always lumpy. So I looked up how to stuff and this time I was successful.

Since baking in the Rv is way too much work, I started baking when I got home. Watched The Great British Baking Show and decided to try a Charlotte Russe cake. Inside there’s 2 skinny layers of sponge, layer of raspberry jam, layer of raspberry mousse. Topped with whipped cream and raspberries. Took hours to do everything.

I used the version I found on Natasha’s Kitchen website except I made my lady fingers. It looked pretty but I was wishing it had stronger raspberry flavor.

Then I tried King Arthur Flour’s recipe for Pane Bianco. That turned out pretty good but next time I’ll roast my own tomatoes rather than buy sun dried tomatoes. I added black olives in addition to the basil, cheese and garlic.

I’m going to experiment with hand pies next.

Two More Quilted Beauties.

Anne made this interesting purple quilt. The Bubbles pantograph she picked out was perfect for it.

Jean finished a quilt that she started in a class, maybe 2 years ago. Teacher was Kimberly Einmo. She enlarged the design. I also took the class but didn’t even get 1 block done and I abandoned the project. Way to go Jean. Pantograph was Shell Shock.

Thanks for stopping by.

Friends Quilts

There’s two friends quilts I didn’t post before I left on my trip.

Carolyn gave me two of these cute baby Quilts with Minkie backing. So soft and cuddly.

Marian made a lovely quilt that reminded me of the sea and sunsets. Pantograph is Ocean Froth.

Picture above shows backing with quilt top.

Photos for Future Quilts

One of the side benefits of traveling is the photos that could be adapted for quilts. While all of these wouldn’t be suitable, some could be cropped and become wall quilts.

Pikes Peak outside of Manitou Springs, CO. It’s 11,115 feet and you can see forever.


View from free camping spot just north of Buena Vista CO in middle of Rocky Mountains.


Reservoir at same location.


Even in this harsh environment flowers bloom.


Beau’s planning our route.

Stormy

My Queen Bee is exhibiting and selling quilted pieces at Appalachian Therapy in May. I made a quilted wall hanging using a pattern of a horse’s head by Toni Whitney which I’ve made before. This time I made a stormy sky using commercial sky fabric and Neocolor Colored Pencils. I also added a hill of trees in the distance.


I made this before but it just had a frame and no background behind the horse. 


I like the second one better.

Thanks for stopping by.

Beach at St Augustine

We started heading in the direction of home because of doctors appointments. Stopped at North Beach Camp which is right across the road from the beach.

It was nice to take long walks. Beau’s first time in the ocean and he loved it.


Our rv was under a canopy of trees.


At the back of the campground is the saltwater North River. The wind was blowing Beau’s ears.


Thanks for stopping by.
