I don't know how she does it !

My pal, Jodie Ann, stays at this piecing and quilting day IN and day OUT !

Jodie, you're 8 years older than I am, and I am beat !   What's your secret.........a lifetime of working both outside of the home and there, too?


Anyway, I'm piecing a simple little quilt for another gift, hopefully.  I made all of the blocks and couldn't satisfactorily arrange them in a scrappy, random manner.  So, after playing around with them a bit, I came up with this design and I'm going for it.  The recipient I have in mind spends alot of time not feeling well, but studying her Bible or watching television evangelists.  The quilt should finish about the right size for recliner snuggling, around 50 x 60 inches.

I got the rows pieced before wearing out, so I can sew the rows to one another tomorrow, Lord willing. 

'See' you all tomorrow !


  1. I see the pattern, and I think it's great! Love the colors and your heart is so huge for making so many gifts!

  2. i push myself girlie with my lupus you have to learn to do that although i pushed too much and made myself sick so i have learned i cannot do that anymore, i am on the mend. BUT i have so much to finish in my prime so i gotta get it going!!
    no, i just really have not done as much as i wanted to since i retired but so many OLD things needed to be taken care of after all of these years, so i am doing them first and moving on BUT my garage is cleaned, my attic, you can see to the rear of it, and it is so HUGE i am shocked and my husbands storage building is clean, i marked all the crates in the attic so i know what is in them and we went thru everything!!!!! in the attic, NOW the city wide free garage sale. My cousin (Cecils' daughter) the one who lost her husband in April is bringing a lot of his tools and stuff so she can start unhording her house. (he was a semi horder of anything that moves!) so i am helping her she is my ministry right now!!!!! anyway it will make the garage HUGE you know how those jobbers lov that stuff at 6 am!!! i have given so much to Gabriel House this last couple of months as i cleaned out my stashes --------- and unfinished stuff they are having a great fall too

  3. hey when is kel moving?????

  4. I really like it! I think its just scrappy/random enough, but there is still some pattern to it! It will definitly make a perfect couch snuggling quilt :)

  5. Dolly, you amaze me with all the beautiful things you make! I wish I had one half your motivation.....even one fourth lol. Looks like another beautiful summer-type day. I must try to pull a few weeds to tidy up, if my leg will permit. Its doing so much better...oh may it be so.
