I LOVE IT!
Thanks to ALL who had suggestions! So many of you had clever ideas, like Linda A who suggested Kevin's Quilting Coop....I would be the only rooster in the hen house! LOLOLOLOL And, there were several who suggested "Kasa Kevin." Although that has a definite ring to it, my home isn't hacienda style, or southwestern. I am going to try the Quilt Cave thing out.....because my studio IS my man cave!
I would also like to thank everyone for their thoughts and concern over my family. To say the least,it has been a very trying time, especially for Dottie and the children.
And, while you are thinking of my extended family, please remember this beautiful little lady!
My Momma is having hip replacement surgery this coming week. She had her other hip replaced in 2010, and
at that time the surgeon asked her which hip she would like replaced, because, one was just as bad as the other.
She chose the one at that time which hurt the most and recovered beautifully.
Well, the pain has become unbearable for her, and
we finally convinced her it was time. My mother LOVES to be active, and take long walks for exercise.
She simply can't do that anymore. But, she will be able to again after she recovers with therapy.
Thank you all again and again for your concern!
I appreciate each and every one of you!
Now, what has been happening in the
THE QUILT CAVE
as of late??????
I finally completed the top for:
This is the mystery scrap quilt my friend Ann of
Attic Threads & Quilts designed.
I have loved seeing all of the versions different people have been making!
I made this one for my niece's high school graduation.
The colors are reversed, and they are in her school colors of black and gold.
Notice anything wrong with it? Well I DID!
After I snapped this photo, I saw I had a block reversed at the bottom!
It is now fixed, and my friend Kim will be quilting this one for me.
This is one of the memory quilts I made in honor of my Uncle for my cousin, Donna.
Uncle Lee was a Baptist minister for over 50 years, so there were several shirts and
ties to choose from. The grey blends into the design wall,and I apologize for that, but, there is definitely
grey cornerstones there! My friend Dar of Dar's Patchwork Garden
is going to work her magic on this one.
I have one more quilt to make from the remaining shirts and ties for
my other cousin.
Several students from the mystery scrap class at the shop which I hosted have been completing
their quilt tops for "Going Home!"
The pattern is coming soon, I PROMISE!
Sharon decided to use yardage for her quilt.
Wonderful job! I love it!
This is going to be an anniversary gift for her daughter and son-in-law.
Here is another version in beautiful gem toned batiks.
I can't wait to be able to see all of the quilt tops completed by the students.
We have a show and tell slated for May 19th at the shop
so we can see all of the different versions together!
You KNOW I will be taking MANY photos at that time!
In other news.....
As I was sorting scraps while watching Quilt Cam with
My Gracie Lu decided to photo bomb!!!!! LOLOLOL
Gracie hopped up in my lap and
it looks like Bonnie and she are posing together!
And, I am not sure if I ever introduced you all to "Dixie?"
Dixie is my white featherweight, named after the quilting friend I purchased her from.
She has such a pretty stitch, and now all I need to complete my dream team is a putty
colored featherweight. I have never even seen one of those in person!
So, I may be looking around for a while?!?!? LOL
Thank you all so much for being the best friends a guy that quilts could have!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
See you next week at the Quilt Cave!
See you next week at the Quilt Cave!
