Thumbstall Quilt Guild

Last weekend was my quilt guild’s bi-annual quilt show. Admittedly, I have not been active in the guild lately; I did go to see our beautiful quilts, visit with old friends, and work a shift at the door. I did not put anything in the show but I did admire some great work from our members.

I thought I would put the pictures in the slide show mode.  I won’t bore you with lots of chatter but I will explain a couple of the pictures:  the first few are from our guild challenge to the members. There is also a display from the NY consortium guild honoring our great state.  Finally check out our Quilts of Valor and Annie Laurie’s fish quilt (the picture with my hand behind the cut out applique!

What Do You Think?




The other night my sisters-in-law and I went to see the movie Jersey Boys.  It was a very good movie.  Then we went to Cheesecake Factory for a light dinner and not so light dessert.

We then went to a few stores at the mall, one of them selling Vera Bradley goodies.  I decided I wanted a new cover for my I Pad. Unfortunately, they do not have a style that fits the I Pad Air.  So I found a shirt in the 60% off bin and made my own.  I even used the tag from the shirt to put on the case!

I used a Nancy Ziemann pattern but I adapted it to my own needs (size, etc.).

I think it looks pretty good, but what do you think?


P.S. It has been a while since I posted. I am sure I have lost a few readers.  It has been a tough couple of months.  More on that later.

Another quilt-another binding! This one has been quilted since last summer.


This one is relatively big-about 72” square.  I hope the next picture will show it hanging on my wall!

This is my last binding-for a while. The next couple of months should have some more interesting WIPs.

Let’s finish up some quilts!

ALYOF- March Finish

Yay! I got it done!


I have been working on doing pantographs from the back of my frame. I think it looks pretty good.


Do you have any finishes for March?
