Is It February already?

It seems like yesterday, when it was the new year.  My does time fly!

And I know it has been awhile since I last posted anything.  So, I thought you might like to see what I have been up to.

Here are some quilts I quilted this year, that are dated from the 1930's and 40's.

America the Beautiful in April

America the Beautiful–

Patriotic Quilt of Valor

Quilt by Florence Moy. Machine quilted by Darla Padilla

America the Beautiful–Patriotic Quilt of Valor
I quilted this fun quilt for Florence Moy and it is featured in Fons & Porter, Love of Quilting March/April 2013 issue.

Make, and donate if you wish, this easy Quilt of Valor. Patriotic prints are plentiful and if, by chance, you cannot find them, simple red, white, and blue fabrics will do an equally honorable job. This quilt is fat quarter friendly.
Size: 55½" × 85½" Blocks: 48 (6") blocks
Rating: Easy

Christmas in February

Yes, I got a little behind blogging! It was a little hard to blog when I quilted 91 quilts from November to December.

 Well, you know I would rather be quilting anyway.

This is my sister Lani's beautiful quilt she made and I was the blessed one to quilt it.

And yes, it was in December for her Birthday/Christmas present.  I think it is gorgeous!
