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

My Goal for June was to complete  Jeni Bakerincolororder Modern Plus Quilt. With the Help of Family, We Came together for each other during a time of need, and it worked out beautifully.

We used Lark By Amy Butler and added a Few other fabrics as we designed it. I will let most of the Pictures Show the Work. 

This is Smokey, I am not a Cat Person, but he is my Aunts Cat and he is sweet and as our animals do they Help and love unconditional. 

This is my Aunt Lela, we have so much fun and share so much love working together, she Quilted it using stitching in the Ditch. 

My Cousin Shelby whom we are teaching made the tag for it, first time FMQ. 

She also made these applique girls, they are the 2 cousins. The quilt was for Amy and they are also bestfriends. I showed Shelby How to make these using Belivemagic by Carrie Payne process and the girls loved it so they taught Amy. Carrie is an artist that blogs and is published in Stampington and Sew. She will love this.

You can feel the texture Here.. on the back



The entire Quilt finished at about 56 x 64 I had and emergency and had to leave as I said we All had a Crisis going on and we came together as a Family and Made a Quilt and Learned something. 

These are the pics the girls sent me, want work for Blogging but I loved they took the time so I am sharing this.
