Finished! Memphis Trip, etc.

I finally finished Paula's Aunt Millie's Garden.  Only took me a month!!!  She did an excellent job and it turned out so pretty. 

I still have another Aunt Millie's Flower garden to do for another of my nieces, Pat.  But I have a few quilts to get done before hers.  Which is a good thing!  There is a w-h-o-l-e lot of applique to stitch around before doing the filler work.  Very time consuming! 
My little "welfare" birds are storing up for their trip south.  I have used two 50# bags of sugar this summer to feed these little critters.  You can't get good pictures because they move so quickly and there is no way you can count them.  This is just a small sampling.

We love watching them!
Yesterday was our group's sew day in Memphis.  Arlene Blackburn graciously opened Delta Patchwork for us and we had a ball.  Her shop is primarily a web shop.  Check it out at
Here is what I bought.  
Don't have any idea what I'm going to do with them but just HAD to have them!


  1. Amazing! I am sure she is extremely pleased! Don't you just love Arlene? I found their website over a year ago and have made several of her open warehouse sales. They are great!

  2. Wow!!! What a gorgeous, gorgeous quilt! Love those autumn colors, too, that you bought. :D

  3. Absolutely gorgeous!!! LOVE the quilting!!! You did a phenomenal job.

    Wow, now there are a few humming birds. :-)
