Another I Spy quilt finished

I put this quilt top together in early 2013 and finally was able to quilt it.  I did it all on my regular machine.  I think I am getting better at controlling where the stitches land.
Here are a couple of pictures

Quilt Show in Paducah, Ky

I am so excited about being able to go to the quilt show in Paducah this year. I have always wanted to go to this quilt show.   I hope I can meet some of the wonderful people I have met here in blog land.
If you plan to go, let me know and we can plan to meet while there.

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!

My DH and I joined the YMCA.  It is only 3.4 miles from our new home.  We have enjoyed swimming laps in the great heated pool there and I have been able to take the aquatic exercise class for arthritis.  I feel it is helping with the pain in my knees and back.
I am working on a couple of memory quilts for a friend that lost her husband a little over a year ago.  I think it is the most difficult quilt activity I have ever done. As I was cutting up the shirts I had tears just thinking of her dear DH and how wonderful he was.  Such a great person!  I will post photos of the quilts once I complete them.

20 more little dresses

Here is another group of dresses being sent to Haiti with our mission group.
This group of dresses brings me to a total of 55.  I hope to make more throughout the year for future mission trips. My over all goal was to make 50 dresses and this group brought me to my goal and more!
