Birthday Quilt

Whoop, Whoop Friday!!

I made this quilt as a birthday gift for a dear friend who is turning 60 in August.  I loved the pattern.  It is simple yet very feminine done in these pink and green tones.

I used several different patterns to quilt the quilt.  I did a four petal flower in each 4 inch square box.  The border is done in swirls and the courthouse square blocks are quilted in feathers.
The overall effect was soft and pretty.

Another machine embroidered quilt label marks the occasion.

Waiting for the big day in August I have it folded on my cutting table where I can look at it and enjoy how happy it makes me feel. 
I love the fabrics.

Happy Trails,

Anniversary Quilt

Wedding Anniversary Quilt
50 Years

 My daughter's sweet in-laws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in June. I was asked to make them an anniversary quilt.  I made the blocks with neutral centers so the guest could sign them at the reception.  It's a wonderful way to capture memories and much better than a guest book.

I love to use my embroidery machine to make custom labels.

My signature feather borders.

Happy Anniversary Tommy and Sandra!!!  May God Bless you with many more!!

 This is the beautiful grandson we share....Thomas Jeffrey....namesakes for both grandfather's.....we call him TJ!!

One HAPPY Nana!!

Fourth of July Parade and Potluck

Happy Fourth of July 2014!!

 Who doesn't love a parade?  Especially when is it  a patriotic Fourth of July Parade with kids, floats, police cars and Popsicles!!
That's exactly what happened in Yorktown today. 

Miss Ella sure did enjoy her Popsicle at the end of the parade route. 

The evening brought a neighborhood potluck with a water slide enjoyed by adults and all the kids!!  Thanks to the Strawns for that amazing fun toy!!  That's Miss Ella and her daddy sliding!!

Auntie KK and I made our traditional Flag Cake for the potluck!
Everybody loved it!!  No leftovers here!!

More fun in the kiddie pool with Ella and Natalie.

It was a funfilled day for everyone!!

Now I gotta get's time for bed!!!

Happy Trails,
