Building houses

I've been building a few houses ever since I saw the link on Lori's blog and decided that would be a good way to slowly make a donation quilt.  I've seen some in really bright funky colors and think I need to do one for a kid donation quilt.  Could put some really cute prints in the windows for added interest.  I'm changing the sky fabrics--so far I'm liking my little houses.

Recap of Jan. row by rows

I've really been trying to make a dent in the row by rows I've collected over the years.  I'm nearing the finish of ONE row by row quilt top and need to finish up a few more to feel like I've done something!!  So here are my Jan. rows--





















I don't expect the pace to continue like this as there are other things I need to do/work on as well but it'd be great to get this many done every month!!  Maybe I'd have 5-6 more tops ready to go if that happened (but I'm thinking that's not gonna happen).

Found quilt

Last year (or maybe sometime in 2017), I had made a little Valentine wall hanging and had it quilted.  When I went to look for it so that I might get it bound and hung, I couldn't find it!!  I looked EVERYWHERE!!  I had gotten so desperate that I even asked Mona the quilter if she was sure she had given it back to me..YIKES!  Never found it so it never hung last year for Valentine's Day.  My brother and his family came a week ago for a visit but I thought they'd be staying with my niece.  When they got here, their daughter wanted to stay with me--OH NO!  I didn't have a clean bedroom for her so I thought I should start cleaning.  Man was that a mess!  I had quilty stuff everywhere.  I started cleaning off the bed and moving stuff around.  What did I find at the VERY BOTTOM of the stacks?  The Valentine quilt--now it's bound and hanging (and no, I never did get it clean enough for her to come stay with me so she stayed at the other niece's).
Guess it's my first finish of 2019!!

Yet another

Another of my quilts awarded to Jack,  a vet from the Korean war (he's also in my Sunday School class).  I need to get busy and make more of these quilts for someone local or I'll send to Alycia in Colorado.  She has a busy, BUSY QOV group.
