Quilts and updates

So many of you have asked me what I am reading now days, and or to give them a good book recommendation, that I thought I would add a new little widget on my sidebar for you! I've joined Goodreads where I am tracking the books I've read, the books I am reading, and the books I want to read. Thanks to Ms. Jan, this is a great way to track them all quite handily. Now, you can see at least four pages of my highest rated books that I've been reading right from my blog.

Now, for the quilts!

This is the finished quilt top that I was commissioned to make out of "grandma's clothes." This picture is before quilting.

Here's is a surprise cuddle quilt for a friend of mine that an on-line group made for her (before quilting). It's made of all civil war fabrics, which she loves. I got to set it together, take it to the quilter, and bind it. The pattern is quite pretty, called Carolyn's Stars and can be found on

She received it Saturday after I picked it up from the quilter. You can also see Shirlee's 2006 Birds of a Feather quilt hanging on the wall behind my friend looking at her quilt.

Hi Sharon! I pop in every now and then to check up on what your working on - but I"ve been so busy at work I've been bad about leaving comments. Anyway, I saw the star quilt from Quilters Cache - I LOVE it! boy does it look different all made up like that! Hope things are going well.
