Holy cow you've been busy. Great quilts! I really like the pastel log cabin ish, and the tri-bright on royal, but they're all very pretty.

Thank's Lori.  Yes, that pastel one was my favorite.  It's called a quarter log cabin block.  Goes together quite easy, and this one has some Easter prints in it.

Wow, you've done what, 9, and I still haven't finished the race car quilt I started almost a year ago. You are quite a prolific quilter!

Thanks Cari!  Our church really appreciates the donated quilts (even to the point where one was given to the "wrong" family, causing a bit of hard feelings, and I needed to make another John Deere quilt!  ha ha!  That first John Deere quilt didn't get photographed.  It was a row by row quilt.  They also are usually easy patterns and go together quick enough.  Then I use them to practice my freehand free motion quilting.
 I'm currently working my way through a free on-line educational series to broaden my quilting skills.  Jeanne Harrison is the instructor.
This week I deliver hot meals on wheels, and I think I'd better go shopping afterwards to buy new mud boots.  Our forecast is for rain starting later today and heavy rain tomorrow.  Flooding warnings will be coming, I'm afraid.  It will be a change after all the snowstorms we've been through this winter.  Snow banks are huge everywhere and rooftops still covered with snow/ice.  Icicles reach almost to the ground.  Sigh....it's time for spring.  I think I'll go quilt something "springy!"

Mavis what a great way to practice free motion quilting. I've been following Jeannie but haven't taken the time to do it yet.
The gravel roads are horrible aren't they.

Thank you, Marie and HelenAnn.  Yes, that week of having to travel our gravel road was horrible.  New mud boots and some stretchy pull over the boot ice gripper spikes saved the day while delivering the meals.  Can't blame those people.  All of them unable to keep snow/ice under control, so getting to their doors was a bit of a challenge!  One lady had fresh made fudge in a baggie for me on Friday!  By the end of another week, we may actually hit the mid 50's. Yipee!!!
