Quilts and Get Rich Quick Schemes

 Finally finished the 100 Best Wishes Quilt that was ordered...
got it there for a special girl's birthday too!
 I really like the way it turned out.

Then I finished this doozy! Each patch represents one of the 50 states in the Union.Some of the individual patches have 90 some pieces...there are over 300 one inch wide pieces around the outside border....it was on my work table so long, I'm not sure what to do with all the space (JK)

Then someone dropped of BOXES of upholstery samples...too big to throw away and yet....I wracking my brain for a get-rich-quick scheme to use them up.  I actually found some silk pieces and will certainly figure out something for them...
Most pieces are perfect size to make tote bags, but ....I gotta decide if that is the best use of my time...or should I just get to work on the stuff that is sitting and waiting on me?  A certain notebook cover comes to mind- will do that tomorrow!


  1. I would love to take a quilting class sometime. Looks so fun!

  2. Your quilts are lovely. The 50 State one totally caught my eye.
