Any leftover fabric can be recycled into more blocks or you can make crazy quilt blocks with the left overs. there is always a use for anything left over. Share them with a friend if you don't want to use them yourself. Happy quilting my friend!!

Keychains I've Made in the Past

Here are a few of the keychains I've made in the past. They vary in size but for most I use a 1 1/4" template.

Hotpad Housewarming Gifts

My cousin Rita recently moved into her own apartment so I decided to make a couple of hotpads for her for housewarming gifts!

The Blue one is made with my kansas dugout shortcut blocks.
The green one is made with my method of making HST blocks. I used a border treatment I like to use in my bookmarks.

Now I'm starting a pieced mini quilt top for a billfold. I want to build up some stock so I have some stuff to offer for sale soon. If there is anything you'd like to see me include feel free to leave me a message. I'm open to suggestions!

Hope everyone is keeping warm! We are in the midwest in Iowa and it has been below zero during the day the last few days with a wind chill of 15 - 25 below

I'm looking forward to the January thaw so we can get some warmer temps going on!! Our house is warm and thankfully so far we haven't had any power outages.
I'm so looking forward to spring!! LOL

I've been  really lagging in doing much sewing. I need to find my mojo! There are a lot of thing quilty I'd like to do and get done.

About a month ago a neighbor asked if would like his late wife's quilt stuff. I said of course I would! They have been bringing me boxes and bins of quilt stuff every few days since then. I have sorted and shared a lot of it but I am still sending stuff out to share with friends. My living room will breathe a sigh of relief when I finally get it all gone LOL  I've spent a lot of time moving and sorting all of her stash. They  tell me there is lots more to come!!  THey have brought me at least 150 quilt books so far. I am down to around 35 books yet to get rid of.
