Currently working on this beauty….

I am so grateful my friends have been so patient with me….trying to get caught up with all quilts in house…..while caring for our two lovely grandaughters…24/7……this one is a beauty made by my good friend Mel….the piecing of this quilt was a feat and she did an impeccable job…………so ruler work is perfect to use on the center …will be doing freemotion in the borders…..I so enjoy how this one is evolving…….thanks to Linda from http://www.thequiltedpineapple.com   The QP #20 curved ruler is doing a wonderful job…..I’ll take you along on the progression of this lovely piece..stay tuned….#thequiltedpineapple #rulerwork #freemotionquilting……

 

Roses are red,pink,and purple…

Sharing a few photos of the roses in the garden…a great start to the gardening season….some have 100+ roses currently…years ago I asked Kevin not to give me cut flowers but give me something to build our garden to last many years…….my children have continued this tradition as well……something we all still enjoy😘😘😘

Monday night lecture and  Tuesday workshop… a wonderful opportunity to spend time with these ladies…workshop included free motion quilting, ruler work, and threadpainting…..kept me hopping but so worth it ……the students were so positive and receptive with all information……to finish off a wonderful trip …Kevin and I enjoyed a lovely meal at Moe’s Bistro…..if you find yourself in New Providence NJ….. take the opportunity and stop by at Moe’s Bistro…..the food was incredible and we spent time with this incredible chef…..we will visit again…..❤️❤️ so grateful for these opportunities….
