Hexagon Love

And here I have been thinking I made so many but really I haven't. I need to get busy. It is enjoyable though. I'm using the stamp system to make them and it's so easy really. It's so much easier than cutting out paper pieces and fabric pieces. . . to me anyway :0)

Antique Quilt

I was recently gifted this quilt. It belonged to my great grandmother. I was just overcome. It is such a beautiful quilt. I will have to load a close up of the quilting. It is amazing and all done by hand.
The quilt had a large brown circle on it as well as brown lines along it's folds. I soaked it in Vintage Textile Soak (recommended by my LQS) and all the stains disappeared. I couldn't be happier with this product.
Now my question is does anyone know the name of this pattern?

Here is a t-shirt quilt I also finished recently for a Georgia graduate.

Bird Watching and a little quilting

I've had my camera posted at my back door aimed at the feeder lately. I'm starting to enjoy watching the visitors to the feeder. Its the same ones day after day. I am a novice at this so forgive me if I incorrectly named these. I identified them using the Cornell Institute's Ornithology Lab. A great site for birding.
Brown Headed Nuthatch and Tufted Titmouse
Female Cardinal
The cardinals are so skittish it's hard to get them on camera.

House Finch

Tufted Titmouse
One of my favorites. I think his crest gives him a jaunty look and he's just so cute!
White Breasted Nuthatch
This little fellow digs through the feeder and throws everything on the ground till he gets to the corn. That's all he wants.
But I still found time to finish this memory quilt for a customer.
