Blue Jeans and Flannel Shirts quiltalong

Hi all! As if I didn't have enough to do, we are starting a quiltalong on Monday July 16th for the quilt pictured here. It is called Blue Jeans and Flannel Shirts, and you can make it out of those materials. But you can also see the table runner I made out of cottons! Love this pattern. The quiltalong is on the Bits and Bobs group:

The pattern is available for free at this link:

If you would like the 32-page pattern booklet with full-size photos and expanded coverage and ideas, it is $6.95 including shipping in the continental US, actual postage added for international orders. Contact me at:
Take care!

Stuff besides Fishies!

Yes, I am a Fish-Along-er. But I do other stuff too. Here is a picture of a quilt I did for a friend of my daughter. I have never met the girl, but she just had her first baby, a girl, and she and her husband don't have mothers. No grandma's!!! So I had to make her a grandma quilt. It is called Cobblestones, and I really like the low contrast colors. They are the colors she has chosen for the baby, so I actually had to buy fabric instead of working my stash. But I do like it. Do you?

Here is the week 3 progress report for the Fish-Along. I have done 73 tropical Fishies! It took me almost as much time to lay out the fishes as to knit one!
Well, take care all!

Fishies Hummm

Here is a little fishies song in the manner of Winnie the Pooh's little hums:

Love them little fishies
Swimming in a row
Love them little fishies
Only 99 to go.

Swimming on the table
Swimming on the floor
Swimming on the ceiling
I've got to make some more.

When I lay my head down
On my pillow in my bed
The fishies keep on swimming
In my dreams, in my head.

Everybody loves them
They want to join along
So we all can sing a friendly
Little swimming fishies song.
