A quilt I couldn't share last week for the blog hop.....

I made this plus quilt for a wonderful friend of mine and delivered it over the weekend.  It was a surprise for her so I was careful not to post photos online in case she saw them!!  Anyhow, I used a variety of text prints in this quilt as her passion is to make photos out of words-so thought this would suit her!!  It's been so long since I've blogged-I just may have to link up to a few linky parties this week;)  Check out the Quiltstory link up-I'm doing it this week for the first time in FOREVER!!  (link in the margin)  And just for the fun of it, my friend and fellow guild mate is hosting TGIFF over at her blog so I'm linking over there too!!

MMQG Blog Hop Day!!

Well, it's my day on the Maritime Modern Blog Hop schedule.  I've been following along all week and have learned a lot about my fellow members-I guess we are too busy talking fabric instead of life in general so this has been a great reading material.

A bit about me-I worked as a dental hygienist for almost 15 years-decided to "retire" and make quilts instead about 3 years ago.  I have 2 girls, and a hubby of almost 17 years and when they got tired of my continual show and tell I found the Quilt Guild (whose members never tire of show and tell).  Here is a photo of my little family including my dog Ben (swore I'd never get a dog-still not sure how this happened).

Sharing a few photos of my craft room.  I still like to rubber stamp cards so I have a lot of storage for my stamps, ink and paper on this side.

On the other side is a custom cutting table, a dresser full of scraps and the larger pieces wrapped around acid free comic book boards like mini bolts.  I took these photos right after the studio reno so I assure you it is not this tidy right now.

Now to share a few quilty projects.

This was a custom order of twin quilts, co-ordinating colors for a set of twin girls.

This is also twin size, Kona cotton in a random pattern for a little boys room, I think he was just moving to his big bed.

This quilt was a gift for my oldest daughter, lots of cotton and steel fabric in this one!  I used the tango pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew.

And this was for my youngest girlie-a tutorial on Cluck Cluck Sew blog for this block that finishes at 12 inches.  I used some low volumes, and lots of shades of teal, yellow, mint and gray for her.  Also the plus pillow on the bed was from the same fabrics.

Well, I hope you had some fun looking through everyone's blogs-tomorrow we'll be meeting Dominique.  For now though, I do have a giveaway and a question.  I swore I'd never get a doggie, and now I have one and would never change it.  What is one thing you swore you'd never do, and low and behold-it's been done????

This prize of 2 Indelible fat quarters is up for grabs:
