Ok my squares are sewn together and now I am adding bits and pieces to unify the quilt.  It only took 42 squares, not 81!!!  Each block is 12".

Happy Birthday Mom

I made these little quilted bird coasters for my mom's birthday today.  The bird I carved from a foam block, then inked it with fabric dye, stamped the fabric and then cut, sewed, and quilted.  
They are nice and flat so no tipping wine glasses or crooked sodas.

Another square for the Anniversary quilt

Anniversary Quilt

This is a new project, an Anniversary quilt for my husband.  It needs to be finished by July 9th, or it will have to be changed to a Birthday quilt!   We both love Cirque du Soleil, so the quilt squares will all be appliqued with various images inspired by Le Cirque.  I am drawing these images from my memory and imagination onto the back of the fusible material, so each one will be different.  I have a long way to go as this is going to be a big quilt.
