Crazy Quilts long over post

These quilts were all completed in the Summer of 2012 but I never got around to posting about them.  Today I was looking at a blog post about scrap quilts and to comment if we'd made any. Well these were all made from scraps (other then the background of course.  Even the border of the blue one is done with scraps :)!

Sweet Dreams quilt

I have finally completed this crib size quilt.  I had my mother layer the batting, top and backing and machine quilt  most of it and then add the binding.  That was before I came across a tutorial that made me realize I could do small quilts on my own kitchen table using painter's tape.
Once mom was done she returned the quilt for me to do the hand quilting around the angel and the words which are quilts with a cloud shape around them.
Sweet Dreams
This quilt will be travelling to my new Great Grand Nephew come Friday when I can make it to the PO.

Christmas 2012 Goodies

It was a long hard year 2012 was.  Most of the year I continually laid up with the knee issues but I'm happy to report that I am FINALLY healed.. well as much as I will be... ages gets ya everytime...

Now is the long hard track to lose all the weight I had lost before this adventure began...

But first.... updating with an album of pictures of all the goodies I received in my many exchanges and swaps.  This is the best way I've found to get the wonderful variety in my stash as there is limited items available locally.  I can only hope that what I send out isn't available where they get sent to so that it increases their stash too.

I thought I was clever and added to my outgoing items as so many did for me last year.. course I have to watch how much due to postage... this year... the ladies have swamped me with goodies and there's just no way I could possibly top it!  I have to first give a HUGE THANK YOU to all who sent to me....  I was having a miserable Christmas but each package helped to brighten things for me and gave me the inspiration and will to dive and get back to my crazy quilting again.

so here goes...
