New Pillows

These are some of the pillows that I will be listing in my Etsy shop real soon. I don't know if you remember me talking about mud cloth. But I was talking about how beautiful mud cloth is when you use it in patchwork. Well I put some in a couple of these pillows and it really made the animals jump out. These pillow are not made to try to match your decor but to accent. It is always nice to have one thing that doesn't match. At least that is what I think. So I love creating these pillows, I call them Gollie Gollie pillows because they are the ones that you hug while watching tv. Or set a plate of food or bowl of popcorn while watching a movie. When you get sick it will be your best friend. Which reminds me, my husband has this quilt that his mom made for him, I can tell when he is not feeling well because he will get that quilt and curl up in it. I call it his Gollie Gollie. That is the way you will feel about these pillows.
So keep watching my Etsy shop and you will be able to purchase one of these pillows. But you had better act fast because the pillows usually go quick. Everyone likes having a Gollie Gollie.

God is The Artist

The other day the sun was out and the air was a little crisp,the sky was so blue and the leaves on this tree was just starting to turn. I looked up at the top of the tree and this is what I saw, To God be the glory, for the things He has done. I have learned to appreciate beautiful scenes like this one.

Round Robin

A round robin is a great way for a group of quilters to challenge each other creatively. In its simplest form a round robin is an ongoing exchange of quilt projects where each person takes a turn adding to the project. You will not be able to see your block again until the all the blocks are finished. Oh what a surprise that is going to be. Beyond that, it can become quite elaborate depending on the rules agreed upon by the group. That being said, our quilt guild just finished a round robin and I was so impressed with the beautiful quilt tops that came out of it. There are some very creative folks in our guild. I am very excited about being in the next round robin that is coming up soon. We are starting with a 12 to 16 inch block. At our next meeting we will each share our block, then they go into a bag and we will not see them again until the round robin is done.
Here are some of the photos from the last round robin
