All Kinds of Happenings!

How’s everybody doing? Has the spring weather arrived in your neighborhood? The tulips and pear trees are blooming as are the forsythia and redbuds. It makes going for a run almost a pleasure.

Just in time for Easter! I had a group of gals over the other day for a class on making this basket.  Isn’t it cute! It was fun to make and a really fun group to work with. They all did a great job. Each basket is unique and their fabric choices were so cute!

                                                       I served Peach Cobbler, too.

Here’s what I have on my design wall this week. It’s almost done. There’s a block or two I want to change and I think I'd like to lighten up a couple of the plain squares and then I have to choose an outer border and binding. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville. It’s called Random Ohio Stars. It’s a graduation gift for my nephew who graduated this past December from Clemson. Clemson’s colors are purple and orange so I included those colors but I didn’t want them to be over-powering. So what do you think?

Hope you all had a great Monday!


  1. I love whats on your design wall - I think stars are great. And, I sure missed out on that peach cobbler. It looks wonderful!!!

  2. I have this pattern printed out and on my "gotta do" list. Yours is gorgeous! The purple and orange is great!! (Of course, it wouldn't bother me if you had a ton of it! Orange -- especially a cheddery orange! :-D -- can be a neutral!! LOL)

  3. I love this! I was just thinking today about making something like it, with different sized stars, like the SKY!
    Sorry I missed Thursday, I was so tired I could hardly walk after work. It seems to be taking me a WHILE to get my energy back. I'm considering going back to the Dr.... something I so dislike to do!
    I just love learning new things~ Mary Lou~ I never thought of orange as a neutral... but I can envision it!
