Catching Up

I am way behind in my blogging, so thought I would catch up a bit.  As you can see in the pictures above, we still have plenty growing and blooming out in the back yard.  My darling Mr. Muddling has been working making the patio bigger.  He has plans.  I'm excited!

Here is the first completed quilt for Quilts Beyond Borders.  They want smallish quilts so that makes them easy to do.

And here is the second one.  Same type blocks with some larger squares of fabric thrown in for fun.  I'm still learning with the new machine.   I am SO glad the quilt police do not know where I live.
This is the back of the second one.

And I do hope these will be a blessing to those children.

I have another I've almost finished.  These are also a collaborative effort of a couple of friends and me.  It's fun to work on projects like this together.

I hope you're finding plenty to keep yourself busy.

Hugs and kisses,

I'm sure that those beautiful quilts will be a blessing to those children.

These quilts are a lovely idea. They are looking great!
How big will the patio end up being?

Sheesh! No wonder you've been quiet -- you've been busy! Great quilts, as always, Elaine!

Great job Elaine. I like how you quilted "blessings" in the quilt. You have been very busy.

You did a great job on them. I'm sure they'll be so honored to have them. I've got a lot of catching up to do too. Hugs. xo
