Something very special about quilting these hearts....

Roxy and I are quilting up a storm and having just a teeny bit of fun...wink wink!!!  I give credit to my hero Green Fairy for her inspiration of the following quilt designs.  I will never be Judi...but I can dream and keep practicing!  Speaking of practicing...my sis called and asked if I'd like to practice on the quilt she pieced for her husband's office...Can you guess his profession?


Imbetween trips to the rec center for shooting hoops and rock climbing and walks with Porsche, hearts are being embellished.


My old standby quilt design and I love it every time....I see this heart in the photo and think of the tears of gratitude when Patrick operates miracles on teeny babies and their hearts....

Yes, a wonky heart quilt for a pediatirc heart surgeon's office....


Isn't this fabric marvellous and the crossword fabric defining the heart shape reminds me of Grandpa...Still missing him...

Off to eat yummy dry rubbed ribs the back to quilting.

Thank you for dropping by, Em

I don't know where to start, first I love the hearts and I really enjoy seeing all the wonderful quilting you and Roxy are doing. I'm still doing meandering because every time I do something else it looks like one big mess. You guys "Rock"!

God bless your brother in law. What a wonderful thing to be able to save tiny babies. That's awesome!

As for the ribs, my husband only makes dry rub and we love them. Enjoy!
