After a horrific two weeks of battling a new computer things are looking much better.  I am convinced that my Apple devices talk to each other. No sooner than I got the computer all up and running the iPhone decided to stop working.  Off to the Verizon store to discover the battery was dead and of course a replacement for it is no longer available.  So a new phone was purchased.  Pricey little things, but Verizon knows its stuff and all info was transferred and it works great.

I finished the first Gone Fishing quilt top this past week.  Now working on the second with a gold colored lattice.  I have a dead line for these to be quilted and bound by April 14th.  They are both huge, like 74 by 95.  Both grandsons are tall, the 16 year old is already 6'4" and the 14 year old is headed that way.  They share a bedroom so I wanted them to match but also at least be a bit different thus one with blue and the other with a gold lattice and borders. 
My goal of 12 charity quilts is almost complete for the year.  This is number 10  And I actually seem to be seeing the scrap stash looking a bit reduced. 
And number 11 done as well.  For some reason it is hard to make boy quilts.  The charity group gets very few.  I may try later in the year to somehow manage pumping out a couple more guy quilts.  Right now I have almost met my goal and I am off to working on some of my own projects.  I know that next month the group will meet to make pillowcases for a local children's hospital, so I have that event on the 18th of March.  So time to start cutting out a couple pillow cases.





  1. Wow that is amazing that you have made so many quilts this year already! Great fishing themed quilt!

  2. You've done so well at sticking with your goals this year. The first fishing quilt is really fun. Fingers crossed the second one goes together as smoothly.

  3. Verizon is very well versed on keeping things working.

    I love your quilts. The fish one made me smile. You're so talented.
