On my machine right now...

This little beauty is on my maching right now just waiting for me to finish her. I bought a couple of charm packs this spring and had yet to use them sooooo..... I looked at Moda Bake Shop and found this pinwheel baby pattern designed by Jodi at SimplyThisThatandtheOther. Jodi used Snippets in the original pattern but I love how Natures Chorus gave it a more elegant look.
The quilt below is for the Loomis Mule Deer Foundation Banquet to be held this Saturday. It is our local chapter of MDF and my husband is the Regional Director of California for MDF. So I donated this quilt to the chapter to be auctioned off at Saturday's Banquet. This was the first time I made a tumbler quilt. I was amazed at how quick it went. I purchased a plastic template at my LQS Cabin Fever Quilt Shoppe in Auburn, CA. It is perfect for a lap quilt or for a toddler's bed. As you can see Lily is inspecting the work as usual.

A Couple of Finishes

I finally finished the cowboy quilt for my friend's little boy Wes. I also finished my Stars and Stripes quilt just in time for the 4th. I love how it turned out. I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July Celebrations. We spent the afternoon/evening at my parent's ranch. We had bbq and enjoyed the company of family and friends.
