Kids Quilts

'I have been so blogged down and just couldn't think about posting. I'm sorry I have been so long. The funny thing is I had put some of these pictures in once and when I came back to write the pictures were all gone.
This was the quilt the leader had us doing at the last meeting. Really neat. Then we took so some kits home and the next two are from kits.
Very different but fun to do I have two more kits to make up now. No meeting this month as she is going to be out of town. So have the next month to work on them.

This is the next mini for the Pink Pincushion . It is called Endless Summer which is coming soon , we hope. I made this out of Fresh Flowers by Moda .It called for 3 but Sinta said she got it out of two. Well I had to use a few pieces out of my stash but not having much with these bright colors, I went back to buy another charm pack and they were out. This was a popular preint. They had gotten yardage so was able to get the polka dot and then the border fabric. These star blocks are really not easy to construct but once you get it they go easy. Love the bright "Fresh Flowers".

We have had some really nice weather and I actually have been able to rake leaves , clean up the Perennial garden. Have to be careful but when my back starts to hurt I sit down and rest. Just glad to get out in the nice weather. It got up to 70 today so this evening before that nice big sun went down I took a little walk. Not early as far as I have before but it's a start.

Hope that you are all getting ready to enjoy the summer. Thank's for stopping by.

Your quilts are lovely and so is your weather.
It snowed here yet again- we think that winter will never be over. The snow was really wet so the roads will be slick tomorrow.
Nice to see you posting again.
Warmest regards.
