My Birthday and Di Ford's New Book

I am back from my birthday hiatus.  Thanks to all of you for all of your good wishes on Facebook, through email and/or snail mail and in person.  I really appreciate hearing from all of you.

My son, daughter-in-law and grandson invited us over for a belated birthday dinner.  This is my cupcake "tree" that my daughter-in-law made.  The flowers on top are made from gum drops.  This is party time here since my birthday, daughter's birthday and Mother's Day are all within the same week.

Daniel had a good time at the party.  His t-shirt says "What happens at Grandma's house stays at Grandma's house."  

This is some of the fabric that I bought....a fat quarter pack of Judie Rothermel's Scarlet Evening line.  Don't really have a plan for this.  I just like it.

My friend, Pam, got me this great lantern and took me out for a wonderful Mexican dinner.  I love the lantern and can't wait to decorate it for the holidays.

I also ordered the new Di Ford book, Primarily Quilts.

I love this hexagon quilt.  This book is truly a study in fabric and how to mix different prints within a quilt.

Beautiful feathered star quilt; beautiful applique and pieced border.

This one might be my favorite of all in the book even though her version of the Phebe and Ann Daggs quilts are in the book along with their patterns.

Even Oh Dear Mrs. Tompkins (also known as The Burnt Quilt) is in the book.

I've been ordering a bit of the original fabrics for some of the quilts in the book.  I'd love to make every one.

I hope you are finding some time to do a little bit of stitching today.  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
