"Gwennie Inspired" 2 and WIPs Be Gone

Cynthia at Wabi-Sabi Quilts hosted the first border link-up for the Gwennie Inspired Medallion Group.  The theme was childhood.  I chose to use my memories of summer days when we lived in South Houston, TX.
I remember those beautiful soft white clouds in the sky and the open fields across the street from our house.  My cousins and I would spend the daylight hours running around in them, playing pioneers finding our way through green bushes and berry brambles.  We competed with lots of bugs for the juicy fruit hanging on the vines and fly kites up toward the clouds. Do visit Cynthia's for other Gwennie inspired links.

What are you working on?  I'd love to see. And there's a mystery book for someone. Same guidelines apply:   Leave me a comment for one chance.  Link your eye candy for another. Follow me and let me know for a third. Remember if you don't have a blog, you can always post a photo from a photostream.  Please be sure there is some way for me to contact you. Ends next Thursday, midnight. I'll be linking to several parties. Tab above. Blessings!



Another Winner/Update

The winner of last week's hexagon paper pieces giveaway was Chantel of At the Corner of Scraps and Quilts.  I've sent her a message.

An update:  I want to thank everyone so much for their kind wishes and prayers for my eye surgery.  It went great!  I know have 20/15 vision again. No more closing my right eye to sew at the machine - lol.

Here's what I'm working on now - Sunday's SS block:
Off to see what the block is for today.

Applique Tuesday

This will be short. Laser eye surgery tomorrow.  Here's my Splendid Sampler block #36.  I paper pieced it with invisible thread, and machine appliqued with invisible thread.
Giveaway still on - see the 6/25 post for a chance for hexagon papers.

WIPs Be Gone, A Winner and Another Giveaway

Remember these:
They are now finished tops. Yeah!  Measure 36" and 37"square respectively, and are ready for the ladies of St. Anne's to do their magic.  Remember I'm just the top maker. Love that part best!
Here's the first one:
It just needed one more border to be the right size. 
To this one I added three borders.  Both were made with the center square made using the Exploding block as seen on Jenny Doan's tutorial.

The winner of last week's book is Nancy from Joy for Grace. Congrats, Nancy! I'll send it along as soon as I have your snail mail address, please.  Thanks to all who participated.  I'm giving away 100 1" hexagon papers for this week.
