If you look to the far left of the photo, you can almost see it.
HERE to go to the pattern. Click HERE to go to Jo's daily blog.
I also hope this is actually the last one this time! On to bigger quilts!
I'm not sure what I'll do with the rest of them. Maybe more pincushions? Or a doll quilt for poor old Dave? (click HERE for Dave's story)
Here it is Sunday night, and I'm just now getting the blog post done. I'm slow, but I get there in the end. The main thing is to enjoy life along the way.
I hope you have lots to enjoy this week.
P.S. I'm linking up with Myra at Busy Hands Quilts. Come join in the fun!

Below is a tutorial, if you'd like to know how to make this quilt.
I have to admit, the quilting on this is Not Great. In fact, this quilt has more nips and tucks than an aging movie star. I think the piecing was okay, especially since it was trimmed carefully. It could have been my not-so-stellar basting. Or the wiggly purple border fabric. Or gremlins.
Somehow, there are still lots of scraps left in that basket.
Have a wonderful quilty week!

I'm making two quilts. The first one is a house quilt with 6 in. blocks, using lots of novelty prints. I didn't think I had very many red ones.
My second quilt is a little calmer (more boring?)
This challenge is so much fun. Thanks to soscrappy for making it possible!
In other news, I have been (finally!) quilting some of the smaller quilts I've made.
I'm doing this on my domestic machine. Small quilts of course are not a big problem.
But I do have a secret weapon.
Here it is:
These have been around forever. Some treadles came with them back in the old days. Most modern walking feet have them.
Currently, this is my favorite attachment.
I've got to go find some shipping boxes. Oh, and take care of all those bananas.
Have a happy scrappy Saturday!
I'm linking up with today's post on SoScrappy.
Check out all the great red blocks!

All these little quilts except the flannel quilt will go to Quilts for Kids, to brighten up hospital rooms and bring a little comfort to some sick kids. The flannel quilt will go to Project Linus.
As if that wasn't enough to celebrate, my orchid started blooming!
I really believe I am the luckiest person in the world. I have a happy, healthy family, and time to quilt.
What brings you joy this week?
I'm linking up with some joyful linky parties at Crazy Mom Quilts and Busy Hands Quilts. This post is also linking to Sew Some Love, a weekly posting at Kat & Cat quilts for charity quilts.
It's more fun if you join in!
