Latest Projects

This is a sneak peek at the latest quilt I am working on. For those of you who are family members, no fair telling, as this is a surprise anniversary present for grandma and grandpa Packard next July. Two of my sisters have taken different blocks to work on also. The pattern is Lori Holt's Reunion quilt. We have personalized it to fit our family with a four wheeler, projects, and our own deck of Make-A-Million cards! It will be so fun to see the finished product. The center block of the quilt is this family tree, complete with names on the leaves. They will be more noticable after I stitch the names on...
These may be hard to see, but these are the fabrics I am contibuting for the "I Spy" quilt swap that my daughter is heading up. She made one of these quilts herself a while back, and I loved the idea so much that I wanted to be in on her swap. The finished product will look like this.
It was so fun finding these fabrics. I usually don't look for these kind of prints for my sewing, unless I am making a quilt for my grandkids - which is exactly what this quilt will be for. (Although adults would probably love playing "I SPY" with it too!)

I'll be back when I get the rest of the squares for the entire quilt. Yay!


  1. Oh, I am so excited to get those squares. You picked some great fabrics. I hope that you'll like the ones I sent in too.

  2. How is your Nativity hanging going? Is it done? Taking your time with it?

    And G'ma & G'pa are going to LOVE that family quilt! I think G'ma is going to cry when she sees it, and knowing that the 3 daughters (who have time to sew...Lisa is exempt, bless her heart) worked on this together will be really cool. She is really going to treasure this quilt.

  3. Hi Vicki, that swap of Connie's looks like great fun for sure. And I love your family tree quilt!
