Enjoying this one....

Well,  I have completed ALL the needed 4 patch blocks for the APQ quilt along. I am now making great progress on getting them put together....
This has been a great project.  I have used almost all Judie Rothermel fabrics and I am very pleased with the almost finished outcome....

I must admit.... my inspiration is from Temecula Quilt Co....I love everything she does  :)


The rows are going together perfectly....with 2" finished squares I was a bit worried.  The cutting of the strips went smoothly and I focused on my 1/4" seams....It's being set "on point" and I really like the look.

I've had so much fun filling my little metal basket,  

I hope to have it together by next week....time will tell :)

When I get to this point I like to look ahead....another inspiration from Temecula Quilt Co...
I had this book and I really want to "improve" and "perfect" my applique.  Doing all the same shape should help with my skills....will see what I actually end up doing :)

Have a great day and do what you enjoy!  

Remember - SMILE always and always give hugs....

Just to let you know......

THIS WAS AWESOME.....

Ultimate-Chocolate-Chip-Cookie-n-Oreo-Fudge-Brownie-Bar-12

My daughter made this this past week-end just to test it out because it looked so outrageous! It was!!!!!   Oh my goodness - I ate 3 bites from my husbands serving and I was so satisfied... I just had to share....The only thing she would have done differently is crumble the Oreo's instead of leaving them whole :) To save calories she didn't used over stuffed Oreo's as called for :) joking!!!!

I know, I know - not at all healthy and those that know me well are probably laughing that I ate it :)

If you are ever in the mood to indulge guests or family or just because - try this!!!

and....don't forget the ice cream and hot fudge sauce (heated)....makes it perfect :)

Have a great day and I do hope you are all having warmer weather - :)

Remember - SMILE always and I share my hug with all of you today!

Keeping myself in check....

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

I have been busy trying my best to stay on track with my projects.  It's amazing how fast we can get excited about something new. BUT my promise (to myself) was  to finish something first :)

I have three serious projects in stages and I WILL stay focused....

#1. My "Lovin' Red" quilt - all the little Churn Dash blocks ---- front finished I just need to piece my back and get it off to the quilter!

#2. My Christmas quilt project with all the trees and Santa - all set to stitch the pieces down - two trees done....many more to go but I am trying to do at least one piece a day when I am home.

#3. the APO challenge - I have 303 4 patch blocks done - about 190 more to go!
All 3 projects are posted in previous posts....

Now projects for the future....

Too many to post but I did find this and thought how fun this would be with all the scraps and fat quarters that I have just sitting around....
This is from a favorite blog I follow Quilting with the Past - I love what she does....

So....nothing big and new to share but I do like saying HELLO....

Happy sewing and happy hug sharing!

Remember - SMILE always....
