About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

Week 4 #vintagequiltrevival Block Along at SIMPLESEW

Vintage Quilt Revival Block Along

Classic riviera Block pg 26

Really fun PP block.. 

Classic Dakota star Block pg 27
I had a bit of a hard time getting this block to Center, thought I would be smart and PP the entire thing.. NOPE didn't work.. .its off around the edges but thats fine, these blocks will be framed out. I am really trying to sway to these darker blue colors from Ty Penningtons line, but as you can see I am having a hard time, I keep going to the sea foam colors.....Oh, well, just might make 2 quilts.. I am enjoying this book a lot and learning some techniques and sewing with great company.
