Table Runner Blog Hop

Woo hoo! I made it! After my confusion on Monday, I was worried I would not be able to deliver on the goods today. Thank you so much for all those who reached out to me with messages of kind understanding and support. You know who you are! It meant very much to me.

This table topper encompasses things I love. I love flowers. My Nana's (my Mom's Mom) favorite flower was the Black Eyed Susan, so I tried to make this look like one. (Although it does look a bit like something that might grow in a garden on Mars, too.) Patchwork mixed with a bit of free-form applique is something I have been enjoying lately, and this mini features some of those techniques. I love my three little girls. The flower "petals" are made from outlines of their hands. Finally, this mini quilt and mini quilt hanger will be a Mother's Day gift for my Mom, whom I love.


Thank you, Madame Samm for hosting this Blog Hop and for everything else you do for the quilting/sewing community.

Easter Prep

In addition to the 7 WIPs I have been working on, it was Easter Prep time at our house today. I thought I would share some pictures...




Have a splendid Easter Day tomorrow!

Modern Mini: Give Peace a Chance

When I saw the challenge over Ellison Lane quilts for the Modern Mini Quilts, I had an idea.  I would make a peace symbol mini quilt.   Not too creative considering my blog is called piece peace, right? 

When I saw some of the other submissions earlier last week, I honestly thought about not entering.  I do not need to tell you the talent out there in the cyber-quilt community.   Then I thought, why not Give Peace a Chance?

My Give Peace a Chance mini is made using mostly scraps and a bit of reverse applique.  This was my first attempt at reverse applique.  I am not sure how I feel about reverse applique.   It was also my first round quilt and my first mini finishing at 15 inches (mug rugs excluded).

The back has a favorite black and white print of mine from Iota.


At any rate, hop over to Ellison Lane Quilt for some serious cool mini quilts!  Also if you are interested, you can enter until tomorrow, Monday, March 5th at midnight.

Special thanks to my husband for taking the pictures.  Anyone who has read my blog before knows I am an awful photographer.

Baby Max Update: Looking good








 

 For all of you who have been following Max' story.  He is doing well.  Today is the first day he has had clothes on in a month.  After a brief return to the ICU for reflux issues (not any heart, lung or breathing issues), he is back in the standard cardiac care unit today where the plan is to fatten this baby up.  He is 3 months old and only 7 pounds, so it is time to order up the infant equivalent of Big Macs...32 cal formula.

The Berrios family wants me to thank you for your continued prayers.  It gives them strength.   Isn't he adorable?
