Let's Bee Social #217

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

What have I been working on? Packing and getting ready to move! Today is the big day!!! Thank you for all of your emails of support, your prayers and thoughts and all your hugs and good wishes!


Today we are moving into our new home....



These photos were from Google maps. So this is how it will look in June. Today it is still winter. Although it was covered in a lot of snow when I went for the viewing, it has been raining and mild for the past few days, and I expect it will be mostly melted away. We are so happy!



Now... It's your turn for Show and Tell!!!

Let's Bee Social #216

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

What have I been working on? I have been working on some quilting that I will have to show you later. Because I am getting ready to move!!! More details next week. And thank you for your prayers, thoughts and all your hugs and good wishes!


Today I am pleased to share these photos from Mary...



Mary wrote, "My niece and her husband are having twins in April. These are their two dogs. Your pattern couldn’t have been more perfect (we won’t talk about how busy they’re going to be with two dogs and two babies!) Thank you.




Those dogs are all so adorable. And it is just too cute how she made the ears on the Dog Gone Cute quilt to match the actual dog! Mary also shared her finished Black Birds quilt. I love this one too!




Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful quilts with us, Mary! I sure appreciate being able to show them off here at the Let's Bee Social!

If you would like to make your own, the Dog Gone Cute pattern can be found here and the Black Birds pattern can be found here.





Now... It's your turn for Show and Tell!!!
What have you been working on?



















Wishing you all a very Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Pigs in a Blanket with Hen and Chicks



These little piggies didn't go to the market. They stayed home in bed!

There is a series of different ideas for the Pigs in a Blanket. This one is with Hen and Chicks.




Although I was highly tempted to go with solids for this quilt, I used prints for everything except the white sheet behind the pillows and for the grey background on the quilt.





The backing is Novella Finnelopy in Aqua by Valori Wells for Free Spirit. I found this in the bottom drawer of my stash. It was the perfect size and it feels good to use it up. Plus it's a great match to the binding and it looks so cute! 





The quilting was performed using a plain white thread on top and in the bobbin. The binding is Alison Glass Sun Print Link Yonder from Clinton Modern Fabrics.







The "Pigs in a Blanket with Hen and Chicks" quilt finished at 35" x 40"
and was the 70th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

I don't normally take on custom order work... But how could I resist?!!!
