I just wanted to clarify my sudoku quilt. It is a picture sudoku quilt in which I substituted pictures for numbers. I've seen alot of sudoku type quilts done with different fabrics substituted for the number and thought, why not do that with pictures.

Sudoku anyone?

click on picture to enlarge..... I decided to post part of the Sudoku quilt I am assembling. I finished all 81 blocks and have put together 27 of them. I'm a sudoku lover.....I love the challenge of this game, so I'm really excited about this quilt. It is all paper pieced 4 inch blocks. I started the blocks a few years ago and decided I really wanted to finish this quilt. It's kinda good that I've set it down for a while because I've gotten a lot more practice in paper piecing through the years. Waiting has made the more complicated blocks easier to put together. The bocks are from Carol Doak's collection of patterns. I have a number of her CDs that I took them from. So, what do you think? I'll post a picture of the finished quilt when I get it done.
Hope you are having a Super Day and thanks for stopping by............

Happy Valentine's Day...umm tomorrow:-)

I'm a little early, but wanted to get this up while I could. To all you sweeties out there, I wish you a very happy Valentine's Day! This block, I made from Paper Panache's #50 mystery. I love doing Linda's mysteries. The umbrella with the rose, at the top of my blog, is from a mystery of her's years ago. Check out her site .

I've been working on a quilt I started a few years back. I have 18 blocks out of 81 to go. I am determined to complete it, so off I go to work some more on it...... I'll post a picture when I get the blocks assembled.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Groundhog Day!

This is Mudslide, the groundhog that lives under our shed. Last spring he brought a lady friend and 3 babies home with him. It was cute watching them sunbathe by the shed. For some reason they disappeared, but Mudslide returned in the fall. Before we let our dog Kahlu out, we would look to make sure Mudslide wasn't near the door and if he was, we'd make noise so he would run to the shed. Kahlu would run to the shed everytime we let him out. Too cute!
If Mudslide would have come out today, he would have seen his shadow and so there are six more weeks of it is said:-)
