RSC19 - Pink & Blue

It was an easy task to catch up with my colors this month.  I should also be working on last-years' unfinished RSC projects, but I must be saving that for another mission.

I'm linking up with  Soscrappy today  and Oh Scrap tomorrow.  Be sure to visit these sites to see what other creative quilters are sharing today.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Dahlia Dream Big - Aqua

I have joined the Dream Big craze.  I started out with a little sampler hosted by Angela Walters of Quilting is My Therapy.  She got our feet wet working on a multi-size panel and learning border designs.  I'm still hand stitching down the binding, so I can share it.

 In the meantime …...
This is my first official full-size Dream Big Aqua quilt.  I added some lovely borders to make it a nice 80 x 90 which should cover a very large lap size or single / full size bed.  I will have great fun quilting it, even if the stitching won't  show up well in the border fabric.

Friday I started quilting in the center, with much encouragement from Amy Johnson of Amy and  Sew Simple of Lynchburg  and Amy Quilts  on Facebook.  She is most generous in  sharing great videos while quilting on this panel.

Won't this make a gorgeous quilt?  I may have to sell this one because all my joy is in the quilting process.  My quilts are getting bigger and bigger and beginning to pile up here at home.  I have been FMQ less than 2 years and have learned it from generous on-line quilters in youtube videos.

   Here is my progress so far …..

I am joining these fun linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing ……………..
