Cinco de Mayo

Last week I was at the Glendale Quilt Show and picked up this Stencil Quilt Patten and the stencils from Jane Tenorio-Coscarelli's booth.

It's a fun pattern to work on, once designs are stenciled onto black kona cotton you embroider blocks using the chain stitch and bright colors. The borders, also in brights, are than pieced and added making a finished size perfect for a wall hanging.

These are a few of the blocks I have been working on. I'm making this my April project trying to complete by Cinco de Mayo. Think it will make a very happy quilt just in time for the celebration!!!!

First Quilt...First Ribbon

A few months back I posted about a day of sewing with my granddaughter, Natalia. She was given a school project called, Beauty is_____ and she needed finish the saying.

She said, Beauty is Love and she wanted to make a quilt. I helped her with her first quilt and there she stands with her first ribbon that was given out at her schools Open House Night last week.

She is so proud and I am proud of her!!!!
