Finally Some Quilting

I have finally gotten something done around here. I've been finishing the "Fruit of the Loom" quilt (I am going to have to come up with a different name) and instead of making one I made two quilts. One is a lap size quilt and the other is a wall quilt. In the above picture I was auditioning borders but ended up not using any.
I did use borders on the smaller one. I love the orange and green together. Who would have thought I would like orange! I don't think I've used much of it over the years unless it's in a Halloween quilt but I love it here. So it's good to try colors you might not think you'll like.

And this is my first post on my brand new computer. I love it! I have never had my own computer and the computer we had in the house was a hand me down from my daughter. I think she had it in high school and she graduated in 1999! My husband says she had it in college. It is an awful computer but hubby doesn't mind using it and I refuse to use it so here I am on my new laptop. Hopefully I'll be able to post more now with this fast computer. Now if only I could finish the UFO's as fast.


  1. Congratulations on the new computer! I got a laptop a while back and I really like it--hope yours works out.

    I agree about trying different colors once in a while. Sometimes you surprise yourself.

  2. Have fun with your new computer . . . they can be a trial at times, but the fun stuff far outweighs them *s*

  3. It was my computer in college....the second one since the first one died on me. Either way it was a bit old and never worked the same once dad touched it!

  4. Hi, out blog hopping and ended up here. Love the name of your blog!

    Isn't it great to have your own computer and not have to share?? Congrats!

  5. Hello from Norway:-)
    Lovely quilt
    Have a great and creative week:-))

  6. i would like a new computer but part of me is too scared it won't all work out

    love the quilt, i wish I were like a quarter as talented as that!



I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
