The Mother's Day Project

I finally started (and finished) the project I had received from The Mother's Day Project. I contacted Anne by e-mail to let her know I was interested in contributing. She then sent me a name and information on how to sew it. It was so easy (all you need is a needle, thread and a hoop), so if you're interested, be sure and let her know!

The name I received was Keicia M. Hines. After doing a little search, I learned a little bit about her. She died in 2004 after being hit by a vehicle on an airbase in Iraq. She was 27 years old and married to a man named Sean. From the picture, you can tell that she was a very beautiful woman!

I am doing this to honor her and her service for our country. I can't imagine being away from my husband like she was. She was very brave and I am thankful for her. I pray that her husband will be blessed.

D's Quilt Progress and A Question!

Yesterday I finished the backing for D's quilt. What do you think?? The green flannel was a little too short, so I had to add some extra fabric, which I had wanted to do anyway. I also did the sandwich yesterday, so I just have the quilting part to go!

I also started a new quilt last weekend while visiting my parents. It's a disappearing 9 patch. Are there really any rules to making this? In the first picture, I have them put in random places. In the second picture, I kind of kept the 9 patches together. What do you think?? Do you think I should make the center always be the yellow too (little squares)? It will be the binding as well... Thanks for your help!!

Quilt #1 DONE!!

Yippee!! I finally finished my first quilt! It has been a long process (see sandwich and top) since it was my first one, but I love the way it turned out. What a fun experience that was. I have other quilts in mind for the next one, but I want to finish D's first quilt first. Here are the pictures of it!

I am entering this in Park City Girls Quilt Festival.
