still learning

I am still learning about this blog thing and hope to get better. Been working on a few baby quilts, just need to finish them off right now. Hope to get that done by next week. I also started some dresden plates, not sure if I want to go light or dark for the background.

This is one that I did from left over backing fabric

The Paddington is just waiting for some yellow fabric for the border.

This is one that I put together from some squares a friend in Japan sent me, I thought of trying to clean up the squares but I liked how it made them look so old.
I will show the dresden plates when I finish them.
Talk to you soon,

Very Busy

I have been very busy lately. I've been putting together dresden plates, now I have to make the squares and put them together. My sister and my aunt have been to visit for the dedication of the building they have named for my mother. She was in the mental health field and past away last Feb. We are all very proud of her.
As soon as my daughter comes back I will post some photos of what I've been working on, she has my camera.
I am still very new at this and cannot figure out how to post the buttons for the two swaps I have signed up for,one is the pincushion over at Quilt at Home and a Christmas swap. My daughter is going to help with that as well.
