Monster Report & My Blue Heaven

Yeah! I finished the borders on "My Blue Heaven" today! I enjoyed working on this scrappy quilt and taking a break from my much loved reproduction fabrics. I threw the top over The Monster for lack of a better place. (More to come about The Monster!) This pattern is from Bonnie Hunter's web site Quiltville.com She is one of my favorite sources for quilt ideas and patterns. If you haven't checked out her web site do it soon!



On to the "Monster In The Living Room" now. As many of you know this pink and green quilt has been in the middle of my living room floor for a while here... okay...for over a year (aside from a month long break at Christmas). I won't bore you with the original details. I will just give you this link to read my first posting about it here. This baby is wearing out it's welcome. I can happily report that I have two more rows of blocks to quilt and then it will be border time. Yep, the next time I turn the quilt the border will be showing. Yippee! Along with a heat wave that we have going on right now that is keeping me out of my Summer Palace, my dear Hubby has a long "Things To Do" list coming up so I have decided that this is the perfect time to work on this baby. This will be on top of my "To Do List" now, or at least for the next week! I have checked out a DVD set from the library of the television series "JAG" and will be happily listening/watching the DVD as I quilt away and enjoy the comfort of the air conditioner.

Wow! I love the Blue Heaven quilt, but the Monster is stealing my heart!! (and yes, I bet it IS a monster - I worked on one of those for 14 months and finally finished it as a gift for my Mom's 70th birthday --6 months late!) Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Your blue heaven is beautiful and I love it on your header!

Racoons. I wouldn't mind seeing one in the distance but I sure don't want one breaking into my palace!

Your applique quilt is gorgeous and once out of the frame, I'm not sure which side I would favour the most .... front and back will be wonderful!

It’s nice to see the Monster In The Living Room coming along. It is beautiful. Your Monster was on display the first time I came to your blog and caused me to bookmark it immediately.
