Trip To The Bear Den Quilt Co.

Took a two day trip to northern Wisconsin for a little rest and relaxation.  My son and daughter-in-law offered to stayed with my mother for a couple of days to give me a break from taking care of her 24/7.   So I did a little card playing and visited this great quilt shop called the "Bear Den Quilt Co" owned by Karen Miller.   http://www.beardenquiltco.com/    What a wonderful quilt shop.... fabric galore, classes, retreats, clubs, samples, gifts and more.   Oh yes!  custom machine quilting.    Yep!  I did a little shopping,  bought Christmas fabric, fat quaters.

First Panto In Three Years

Here is a photo of the quilt I just finished for my son and his wife. 
This is the first pantograph that I have used in 3 years .....I decided that I will never use one again.  They are just not for me, get bored with them.   Will stick with the custom quilting or use stencils.   Oh yes!  as you can see I messed up on the block placement......lol   Oh will,  this quilt is a service quilt to be wrapped up in to keep warm.

Winter Delight

These beauties came from my garden ...... I dislike can processed food,  decided to learn how to can a few years ago so I would have healthy food during the winter months.  Love making Minestrone soup, veggie chili, Spanish rice with green pepper, all from the garden.  Back to quilting so I can get another picture posted.

Project for the Day

Queen size quilt for my son and daughter in law that's on the LA for today's project.   Will use a  no brainer  design (pantograph)  cause I'm to lazy to come up with a design that would be simple, fast, and look good.
Don't ya just love summer???
This baby came from my daughters garden.   That tomato went  right  into two slices of bread,  lettuce,  and a little mayo.

My veggie pizza made from garden veggies, crust was made from scratch too!
YUMMMMMMMMM!   It was excellent! 


My little mini quilt is almost complete, just waiting on the thread that I ordered.   A Mulberry color to match the color in the leaf in the fabric that is on the front of the quilt.  The color will go in the puffed out  area to add  interest to the back of the quilt.   Had to do a little frogging also.... not paying attention to what I was quilting.   That took awhile to pick all those tiny stitches out.   Will post a photo when the quilt is completed.
OPPS! had to remove the photo so I wouldn't spoil the surprise for my secret mini swap partner.  Here is a sneak preview.    Don't ya just love it??
