Two Quilts Off the Frame ~

 I love sewing!

 Debi's Modern Rectangles

I wanted to share the latest two finishes for this week- love the week home from school! First was Debi's Modern Rectangles Quilt for her granddaughter. It was stitched with a horizontal loopy stitch, like a water motion.

     I failed to get a good picture.

Next up was this Poppies quilt by Kathy, oo-oh, I wanted to keep this one! I love poppies and red is my favorite color. M-m-m-m, yummy!


 Kathy backed it with a rich blue plaid. Her thread is blue variegated, perfect ~

We had a charm swap in our quilt class this week, the theme was patriotic design. Here's what's happening with my blocks ~



 On a personal note, dd Lydia is in the hospital due to an infection that she didn't get taken care of soon enough. She is healing slowly. We would appreciate your prayers. Her hospital is 25 miles away, and it looks like rehab will be even further away. 

"Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us. Selah."  Psalms 62:8 



  1. Love the photos of the quilts and blocks.
    Hope your dd is well soon

  2. Beautiful! The poppies are really cool. Sorry to hear dd is in distress! I hope she feels a lot better soon!

  3. such pretty quilts. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  4. I hope your daughter heals quicker than expected.

    That poppy quilt is so attractive.

  5. Love the quilts and the gorgeous quilting. I'm with you - the poppies are stunning. Love them!
    And I like the way your collection of stars is growing. Looking great.
    Best wishes to your daughter for a speedy recovery!

  6. Hey Pokey...the quilts are gorgeous...especially the poppy one. I have a flimsie waiting (and waiting) to be quilted with all the fabrics in that collection. I should get at that. Love what you're doing with the patriotic blocks! Take care, Jacque.

  7. Praying that your daughter heals quickly. So sorry. The quilts are amazing. I too love the poppies!

  8. I'm partial to the Patriotic stars. They are all beautiful! Hope Lydia is well soon.

  9. Prayers going up for your DD as she recovers! Hope all goes smoothly for her...

    Thanks for sharing all the eye candy... I think I would want to keep the poppy quilt too!

  10. The quilts are lovely and i really like your star blocks, too. Praying for your daughter.

  11. Your finishes are great. I, too, like the poppy quilt. I also really like your patriotic blocks. Hope your DD is getting better.

  12. I hope your daughter is out of the hospital and has a full recovery soon. There's a lot of quilty goodness here to see! Love your patriotic blocks, and both quilts are beautiful! I had seen that poppy print in internet quilt shops but didn't realize the scale was so large. That is a perfect pattern to showcase it.

  13. I hope your dd is well on her way to being well! Poor thing!

  14. Thanks for sharing two such lovely quilts! Will keep Lydia in my thoughts.

  15. The quilts are beautiful. I love the colorful "Poppy" quilt. Prayers for your DD. I pray her healing will be quick and the the rehab will go smoothly.

  16. Just stopping by to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day. Hugs

  17. That Modern Rectangles quilt is really speaking to me! Love it! The poppies are pretty, too.
    Praying your daughter is much better & healthy now.
