Did You Say "Breakfast in Bed?"

Mother's Day will be here before long.

Flashback: Once upon a time, when my children were young, they told me to stay in bed. The brought me breakfast -- in bed, and they had made it all by themselves. What a great memory!

Hold that thought!

For now, Lori and I are going to attempt another "memory maker!" We're making "Breakfast in Bed!" But don't get too excited. As much as we'd love to serve you, that's not what we have in mind. :-)

This next quilt project is entitled "Breakfast in Bed!" So... if you want "Breakfast in Bed" by Lori and me, you'll have to attend the quilt auction at the Inservice designed to raise Mission money next Fall!!!

This is the progress so far... cutting strips and pieces.

Won't you join us from time-to-time?

Can You Believe It?

There's going to be another twin-sized quilt!

Lori and I are going to create a second "Christmas-y" (in colors only) quilt for the annual Quilt Sale - Fund-raising effort for Mission efforts, conducted through our church, around the world.

I cannot tell you the name of this quilt... I know I was told, but for now... I cannot remember. However, there are diagonal stripes going both directions that result in small nine-patch sections when they intersect. Between the diagonal lines are squares "on point." You'll get the idea as we begin working and posting photos.

For now - here are photos of the fabrics we'll be using (that are now in the washing machine)!
The green fabric has impressions of pine trees. The mottled red fabric reminds me of cardinals... how about you? ;-) I have provided close-ups of the other two fabrics below.

This is a close-up of the white fabric at the top right in the above photo.
Does it look like swirls of snow?

This is a close-up of the fabric on the bottom-left of the first photo.
Subtle snowy scene.

Enjoy the "trip!" I know we will!
