already starting my next project

I finally finished it!!!!! The donation quilt is finished. My friend Casey asked me to make a quilt because they needed to raise money for their preachers wife. She had an accident and it left her with a brain injury. There is a surgery that may fix her problems, but its not covered by insurance so the church is raising money and she thought this would do well. That is why I made it.

BUT...  I haven't been able to photograph it yet!!! She has started selling tickets for it and I turned it over on the promise that she would give it back for me to take some pics but the weather has been icky... Im waiting.

so here are some of my sneak peak pics i took inside the other day... if you want a ticket based on the sneak peak they are $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00 and use this paypal button.


So... the day i finished that one, I immediately started another quilt (even though i have a gazillion WIP's right now!) Caty (step daughter) walked by and asked what i was making and i showed her and she said "wow your picking more complicated and traditional things right now" So i dont know what it is but yes, i have "changed" how i do this with the quilt above and the one i am making now. First.. the one im making now i am following a pattern!!! shockers!!! Second.. i am actually enjoying cutting all the pieces at once and sewing them together... up till now ive been a cut some, piece some cut some, piece some. And, yes they are way more traditional than my previous quilts.... dont know why the change. The one I started is a log cabin and I have always wanted to make one, but never really saw a pattern that i liked.... ralph found this one that HE liked! lol

Here is the quilt im making...

It was in the McCall's Quilting (May/June) Ralph bought the magazine and it think he did it just because he liked this quilt! And yes, it will look great on our bed. Now the size, i will put another or bigger border on it to make it 90 inches at least... we like quilts big on our bed...

here is her facebook page:

I have pieced a couple blocks just to make sure i liked it, but i have all of the cream prints cut and over half of the darks... I am loving it so far.

Grand baby news: The boy's mom is now in ICU and things are not looking good. The doctors cant seem to give an answer as to why she is having episodes that look like seizers (or stroke) We are not sure if she will recover from this. Please keep her in your prayers. Their dad is keeping the boys at night and trying to hold it together. It is so hard to watch them all hurt like this... please pray for them all.
