My birthday was last Friday, the 22nd.  My husband and I decided to spend my birthday in Reno, NV....I like it there, we hit all the quilt shops and thrift stores...we always come home with good stuff!  This time though, we also hit a couple of bakerys that I "googled"...they didnt dissapoint! Check out these yummies from "Josefs Vienna" & "House of Bread"...good lord in all looked good!

Starburst Qal is done!

Oh my goodness! I marathon sewed yesterday and got my
Starburst QAL quilt finished!
Its part of QAL with Melissa Corry @ Happy Quilting

I decided to go modern with the color scheme and use brights with gray...I think I did ok! Then instead of just solid gray sashings, I went with 1 1/2" piano keys...I wanted to used up leftover I did the piano keys between the blocks and on the border....problem is, I still ended up with a stack of scraps...ahhh well, it was worth the effort!  I am just so happy that its done..its a monster at 85" square...WOW!  Its not the best picture and I apologize for that. I will write another post up after its quilted and bound...

I was a lucky player/participant in the
Quilt U Be Mine Mini Mystery Round Robin 
with Michelle of .  Michelle
always does a fantastic job coordinating these
round robins and she is a joy to know. I wish to
personally thank her here for all her hard work
and patience and guidance!
Thanks Michelle, you ROCK bloggy girlfriend!! 
So....we all started the round robin by making a
center block.  Mine is the paper pieced heart
to the left center below.  It then went to a whole group
of talented quilters all over the U. S. A. and even
overseas to England once!  Those great ladies were: Diane
in England, Kathy in Washington, and Rachelle in Michigan. These fabulous ladies added their
own special touches by adding a border to my quilt
during my quilts stay with them...Heres the end result!
Check out those cute kittys!!!!!! OMG!!
Look at those darling letters spelling out my blog name!!
Cute Cute little spools!!!
Look at the beautiful red herringbone border!!!

I had tears in my eyes when I opened it up, I was so
touched by all the personal attention and talent
that these wonderful ladies put into my little
quilt...I am stunned with happiness...Its going to get
finished and put up on my sewing room wall where I can
look at it every single day!!  XOXOXOX to all of you!!
Thank you all so much!!
 Quilty Hugs all around!
Luv, Julianne

Kids say the darnest things!

So back in 2011, I made my grandaughter an "I Spy" quilt for her 1st Birthday.  Heres a picture of her with her mommy at her Birthday party...after opening up her quilt...

She was so cute...this picture shows me just how much she has grown since then.  The reason I am showing you this picture is that over the weekend while at their house spending time with her,we were playing with the quilt having her find things and she was telling us what things were, now mind you, she is 2 1/2 now...she says to my sons friends daughter (shes about 12)...."Look at my pretty blanket, my Ganny made it for me".  Needless to say, I almost started was just so sweet...shes just the best!!  She steals my heart every chance she gets...I'm so proud to be her Ganny!
