Sweet Annie

 One of my favorite quilt tops has been quilted!  I call this quilt, Sweet Annie because the fabric was sent to me by a dear friend and her name is Annie.  I can't put into words how much I cherish our friendship and I believe with all of my heart that the Lord put her in my life.  

So with that being said, this quilt is one that I will keep and cherish for myself.  I was excited to get it quilted. 
 Sometimes a simple design is so striking especially with two color quilts. 
Now I need to get the binding sewn on but first I need to finish the binding on the tumbler quilt since I already have it started.  

I have a customer quilt on the frame now, actually it belongs to my aunt and I've had it forever.  Actually it was next in line to be quilted when my old longarm broke down.  It is a really pretty quilt.  I can't wait to post it.  

I also need to take a few days to finish up a baby quilt for our niece, Katie.  Katie had her baby boy a few days ago and named him Keagan.  He was born 5 weeks early and is in the NICU but doing well.  The quilt that she wanted for him was a simple design.  The pic that she sent me was a chevron fabric with an applique elephant and his name both down in the lower corner.  I have the applique pieces cut out but I need to square up the backing and sew the applique pieces down then quilt it.  It really shouldn't take too long.  I also have some soft minky to back it with.  I'll post pics on that as I am working on it.  

Garden news....  :(  It's sad.  LOL!  No pics right now but the lower garden looks horrible and is not doing well at all.  I'm thinking that the only thing that will do much of anything in that one is the cucumbers and some cabbage.  The upper garden (the bigger one) is doing pretty good.  The corn is about knee high.  The potatoes are looking good but needs more dirt pulled up around them.  The Jade bush beans are doing well and I have beans on but they are not ready yet.  The Greasy Beans have vines going everywhere and they will produce a little later than the Jades.  I'm anxious for the greasy beans as in my opinion those are the best green beans in the world!  The sweet potatoes are not looking real great but they are hanging on.   

After Church I plan on finishing up Deb's quilt and loading another one on.

Happy Quilting and many Blessings...

Love that two color Irish chain. Two color quilts are my favorites ... so simple yet so stunning!

I've never heard of jade beans. How do they differ from green beans? Our garden is doing well, except something keeps eating our green beans down to nubs. :-(

(Please excuse the deletion above; I left out an important word.) Your red and white quilt is very pretty, and very versatile. It could be used several times a year: Valentine's Day, any patriotic days, and of course, Christmas! I love it! ---"Love"

Sweet Annie--what an appropriate name! A lovely quilt. Must feel good to be able to get things quilted again!

Wow! This quilt is striking. The two colors really show off the design.
