Tessa is almost done!

Amanda and Tessa are just about done with their first quilts!  I am so proud of these girls, they have really hung in there and are getting this quilt finished!

Amanda has some borders to add and we can start the quilting.
Tessa is done with her quilt top and is ready to start the quilting.  Almost there!

I managed to quilt a baby quilt for my friend Sharon this April.  What a happy little quilt this is.
So you see, I have been busy.  Just not on my quilts....  Oh I have been working on one for a challenge but I can't share it until June.

Hope you get to sew this weekend!

Ghastlies Reunion revives some old blocks!

Last year at Road to California my friend Debbie Vaupel brought these 12 blocks that she made 20 years ago, in hopes of finding a fabric that could pull them together.  

Well we didn't find anything at Road 2012 but persistence paid off on a shop hop later in the year.  Look what we found at Tranquility Quilts and Fabric Shop in Garden Grove.
Alexander Henry's Ghastly Reunion.  

It pushed her out of her comfort zone and look how fun this is!

 She helped me machine quilt it yesterday.  I used some of the designs I learned from DeLoa Jones class at Road 2013.

I've been keeping busy and have a few other quilts to posted.  Will share them soon so check back!

Hope you all are sewing this weekend,
Love Aunti Nicole
