You all know Uncle Kevin the Quilter is NOT tech savvy!
I must be doing something wrong in order to enable messages to come

Red Cross Block
This was Scrap Club's July Block Lotto.
Look at all of the beautiful blocks that came in
during our meetings!
The winner was Lillie, and she was beyond thrilled!
I would be too!
I would be too!
Here is the pattern if you are interested?
To make this simple block you will need the following:
- 20(qty) 2" squares of reds
- 4(qty) 3.5” squares of neutrals
Construct 5: 4 patch units from the red 2" squares. Units should measure 3.5" square.
Design block placing 3.5” red 4 patch units in a cross formation, adding 3.5” neutral squares to corners.
Piece block together in 9 patch fashion.
Unfinished block should measure 9.5" square.
Remember this quilt?
The happy couple were appreciative of their wedding gift from me.
I have known Christa (the bride) since she was knee high to a grasshopper.

Hey, the bride said MODERN,....so I tried something different! LOL
Dear old Dad's birthday rolled around and he turned 78!
Wow.....how is that possible?
I am so proud of my family!

We are both turning a little gray!
Sophia had a check up at the vet, and she
got a good report!
Thank you Jesus!
She was beyond ready to leave the vet in this photo!
She doesn't care for going there, bless her heart!
Here is another little cover girl!
I recently celebrated with my friend's Matt and Samantha.
Their second daughter, Charlotte, turned 1 year old!
Here she is modeling for her 1 year photos on top of
the baby quilt I made for her.
I love seeing these quilts used!
This is my new normal.
How do you all like my bionic arm?
Tendonitis is evil!
My job as a flight attendant is solely responsible for this!
Many chiropractic treatments and sports wrapping like this
does help some.

Unbeknownst to me.......
I was nominated as a
Quirky Quilting Angel on the
website for my work with
Quilts of Valor, Eastern Missouri
and Scrap Club hosted by Kevin the Quilter.
I found out my friend Linda had nominated me......
thanks so much for your friendship Linda!
I received this wonderful prize package!
Skinny rulers, sqare templates, and a holding rack for the templates!
These are going to come in so handy!
Thanks again for the nomination Linda,
and to Martelli Notions for helping quilters
recognize other quilters!
I was able to spend the day with my friends Linda and Vernie!
We have so much fun going to this Mennonite store in Iowa.
A piece or two of fabric came home with me......
along with a lot of bulk spices and food!
Speaking of friends.......

and I have wanted to dabble with the colorwash idea
thanks to my friend Wanda of
I KNOW this is nothing like Wanda can create...
but, it's been fun!
From the garden......
Okra is coming in strong from the garden now.
I realize okra is not as popular in some states as it is others.
I grew up with it, and I love to mix it with home grown tomatoes.
I also like it fried!
I love having a garden of plenty to
eat from during the summer
And I will leave you with this funny.........
Ever hear about the quilter that had too much fabric?
My friend Mike found this t-shirt on the web and thought
it would be perfect for me...........
Thanks for all of your encouragement!
Thanks for all of the goodies!
Keep on Quilting!
