16 patch doll quilt

I finished the top and basted the layers together and then took this picture. It stopped me dead in my tracks. That block on the left 2nd one down is way too strong. I had to set it aside for a few days and look at it again.

Laying in my lilac bushes

All I see is that one block!

Back of the 16 patch - Lilacs in Spring Thaw

I like how the back turned out.

my touch of Spring

I am so happy I am using some fabrics that have been in my stash forever and never used!!!

so I took it out…..

I replaced one block that was bothering me

and replaced it with a the same blue just a milder lilac color.

This little bunny didn't want to wait ...

I like it sooooooooooo much better.

Now to get it quilted and the binding on. I want to make a pillow mattress for this bed, fitted sheet, top sheet and pillow cases.


Made with LOVE!

Pillows made in the late 80s

I finished these two pillows for my son before he was born the summer of 1989.

IMG_0997I made little hearts and stuffed them and then attached the hearts to the white fabric.


I love the texture it gives the piece.


I have never seen anything ever done this way.


I had my purple fabrics out because I know I still had some of the original fabrics

used in my son’s quilt and in these pillows still in my stash.


I then was looking at Flickr and saw Ann’s quilt.

I have to make it.


I already have 8 blocks done….only 12 more to go.
