I have a finish!!!!  yeah!!!  this is spring blessings rebloomed.  It was a BOM from Quilt House bed and breakfast & Quilt Shop  I love how it turned out.  I used a panto all over pattern.  I know, I quilted right over all the lovely applique.  I am such a chicken when it comes to quilting.  I need to step out of my comfort box.  But I didn't want to experiment with this quilt. 

If you are interested, Elaine has LOTS of BOM (blocks of the month). I mean LOTS. Some of them she designs herself. Her prices are very good.   She also sells the best fusible I have ever used - Soft Fuse (scroll down just a bit). 

Next I finished all the monkey blocks for Monkeyshines.  I am testing the pattern for  Quilt Doodles  Can I say FUN? The applique was easy.  Once I finished embroidering the faces on those monkeys, their personalities just shone!  I love these little guys.... 

You will love all of Cindy's patterns.  Go check her out! 

I have been still working on Home for the Holidays.  another block is almost done. 

So that is it for this week.  Today I load another quilt on the frame, so another UFO will soon bite the dust. 




  1. Monkeyshines is so cute!!! And spring blessings looks very nice!

  2. Lorene Dear your quilt is very beautiful. It looks like an extremely lot of work but well worth the effort...a labor of love. Monkey looks uber cute so far. Fabulous Finish...

  3. Lorene your roses are stunning! How the Quilt Doodles testing coming along? I really like the fabrics you chose.
