This past week has been eventful.
Work all week
Auction Night at the Guild
Weekend spent with grandchildren
Granny's Star Quilt.
I sent my first ever to be long arm quilted quilt off to the Longarm Quilter. She is so fantastic. She called me today to let me know it is ready!! I can't wait to pick it up.(I'll post a pic, promise).
Just as I was trying to put all my attention into getting projects done... the grandkids came to sweep me away from my list of to do's. (how could I resist?)
In celebration of Easter we colored eggs. They had so much fun making up designs and colors. What a pleasure to see them being creative. (my favorite thing to be) We went to see the movie RIO... Oh my, the beautiful colors!!! What inspiration for creating a colorful quilt with birds and flowers...
Oops! there I go again, getting off track.
It was truly a weekend of colors and inspiration for creating.
...check this out!
I did manage to stay on track as I promised myself and have completed 10 of the 12 blocks for the Granny’s Star Quilt. I have one boarder left to appliqué and all the yoyos are ready! I really did focus! Even through all the activities!
(I can't take credit for this one. It's a beautiful quilt found in the Fons and Porter July/August 2009 magazine, pg 78, Granny's Stars)
I do so hope you find inspiration for a fresh idea, or simply to pick up an unfinished project and make progress at getting it completed. Happy Spring you all! Love to you...MB aka apiecedheart.

- Welcome to my blog. Fabric has always been a passion of mine! I love looking, touching, feeling, smelling and of course creating with fabric. I was a professional seamstress for 13 years and now sew for relaxation and the pure joy of seeing a finished creation. It is my hope to share my triumphs and temptations with you. Love to all.
