Scrap Quilts by Edith

This is a scrap quilt that I quilted for one of my customers. It is 82"x82".....this one had a small amount of unsewing. It took me 10 minutes to sew and 6 hours to unsew.

This is the second scrap quilt by the same customer. I loved the border with one narrow green, wider blue and a third wider blue border. I delivered them today and she loved them....that makes me feel good about quilting.

Here is Lizzy Lou

This is my new quilter a TinLizzy18. I have named her Lizzy Lou. This is the first thing I quilted.

This is Wonky Charm Stars....It is based on a quilt block pattern I found on the Internet. This is the first quilt that I had to come up with how to place the blocks and the borders. It is so much easier when you have a pattern with all the directions. I do love how it turned out.

Trip to Las Vegas

We had a wonderful time in Vegas...It is the town that never sleeps. We were up 22 hours the first day we got there. No sleep for us ....we wanted to do everything. This is Moma in front of one quilt store. Yes Vegas has quilt shops. Four are in the valley and this on is in Boulder City(I think that is the name of town) We took a 5 Shop Hop.The quilt shops were so nice.
You know I had to get a pic of this...the food was very good. Plus the were open after 10 pm.

Sorry the pic needs flipping and not sure how. This is Me, my Moma,Susan (how great tour guide) and Edith our new friend and Richard her husband was our photographer.

This is Old Vegas of my favorite places we went. At nite there is a light show in the overhead canopy. This is must stop on a trip to Vegas.

This is the Luxor.....It was nice.....not that we spent any time there.

Gary and I at Margaritaville.....I love this place...I like to go to the one in Myrtle Beach SC. Hope to post more pic from the trip, but I need to go pick Zack up at the train station.
