Have you seen the new Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts? It is full of quick fun quilts. I was thrilled when I got my issue for more reasons than one. I drew inspiration from Cynthia Brunz's Bamboo Shoots and Tony Jacobson's Ode to Blanche.American Jane's Ducks in a Row for Moda. I love the bright happy colors.

Every other year we have our DeRyke family reunion. My children look forward to it and wish it happened every year. I made this quilt after seeing a book by Mary Lou Weidman. (Who by the way I will be taking a class from this fall. I can't tell you how excited I am for that.) If you've read my blog for very long you will recognize this quilt.
So grateful for my family and this great opportunity to see everyone again.

You may remember this little piece I made a while back with a frame I had found at a garage sale. I had so much fun making it I knew I wanted to make more. So I've been on a quest to find fun frame to fill. Well, I hit the jackpot at a recent garage sale. Five fun yellow frames for a steal. Yesterday DD and I set about filling some. DD is into owls right now so I thought it would be fun to make one to put in her room. I did a rough sketch and set about cutting out pieces.

I promised I would reveal my finished top. Thank you to everyone who gave their two cents on the finishing triangles.

It's that time of year again; time to go to girls camp. I've been doing this since I was 12. Missed a few years when my boys were little. But it is a time honored tradition and I LOVE it. Such fun times and shown here and here.
