Life Can Be A Puzzle

Has your life ever been a puzzle? You know where the pieces just don't fit together no matter how you turn the pieces? I have a great friend whose life is like that at the moment. I decided she needed a quilt. What better quilt pattern to make than Sudoku.

The baby heart quilt is finished. All 40 hearts are done. The quilt was mailed today. I hope my niece likes it.

Here is the quilt I made at retreat for my daughter for Christmas.

Shh! Don't tell!

"Be Attitudes"

This is two of the blocks of "Be Attitudes". There are 12 blocks. I definitely was grateful when the applique pieces was on the blocks. There is still many hours of work to finish them.

You can see retreat was very productive. Great friends, good food, and a power outage. I can't wait to do again next year.

Hands2Help Quits Finished

Back in April 2011 I found Sarah's blog Confessions of a Fabric Addict and her H2H Challenge. I decided this would be a fun and rewarding challenge. My swap partner Shannon sent very fun fabrics to make these two great quilts. Thanks Shannon.

Quilt #1 is Happy Butterflies.

Here is a picture of the back of quilt #1.

Quilt #2 is Silly Monsters.

Here is the back of quilt #2.

The quilts will soon be on there way to Judi and Clint over at Green Fairy Quilts. Clint will be taking these H2H quilts to Romania. You should check out last year's quilts. Thanks Judi and Clint.

I wonder what everyone else has been doing. Let's stop over at Sarah's and see.

Blessings, Karen

Kansas Trouble Block Swap - LBC

This month's winner requested tans, green & purple.

Here are all my mini charm 4-patches. I just need to finish putting hearts in all the solid blocks. One heart done and many more to go.

I hope everyone has booming week-end. I wonder what is happening over at Sarah's.
