When life gives you scraps - make a quilt

I got to work this morning and look what one of my customers and her daughter surprised me with.
This is sooo cute.
It is tagged 'When life gives you scraps - make a quilt' and is signed and dated.
- if you have time go take a look - they are all so cute.

A finish and a start

Wow - I can't believe I actually got on my blog. My computer has gone on strike and won't let me cross the picket line.

I finished quilting my Dresden quilt and finally put the binding on. I had planned on selling it but the quilting didn't look that great (to me anyway) so I put it on the bed.
I sure thought it was a bigger quilt than it is. Turns out it barely covers a queen top.
I guess I will need to make another one - good chance to use up that mounting pile of scraps.

I went digging in my stash of quilt tops and came out with this one.
This was one of the 1st tops that my sister Beverly (Quilter's Corner)  put together.
So I started working on it this past weekend. As you can tell I haven't gotten very far.
Doesn't look like I will have a chance until the new year.
At leat with it set up I can grab a few minutes here and there (hopefully)

And now for the lighter side.
My daughter will be visiting after Christmas and I have an extra addition for her to take back with her.
I just couldn't resist taking this picture - so cute. The little one is mine and the larger one is a schnoodle.
She has 4 kids now and they soooo want a puppy but one has allergies - so a schnoodle it will be.

This is the most use my treadmill has had in awhile.

Lil Twister

I picked up the mail the other day and I had a package from my sister Jeanette @ InchWorm Fabrics.
All I could think was what could this possible be - I hadn't ordered anything???
Well to my surprise she sent me a Lil Twister ruler.
How cool was that.
I have been wanting one for a while but wouldn't spend the money.

Here's a pattern I found to show what the ruler does.

So this will be on my to-do list this next year
Thank you so much Jeanette
