Garden Path

One of our favorite hobbies here at the Bailey house is gardening and while the sky is gloomy and we are anticipating a week-long rain event, we can't help to think ahead to spring. Mark and I have some yard planning in the works including a new arbor over in a corner where he has his hammock and which we can train our wisteria to grow upon. In the meantime, I finished a quilt for the store called Garden Path which features a panel and coordinating fabrics. I hope you like it. It will be a perfect addition to my ever changing quilt wall when spring arrives.

Bunny Hill BOM is done

Many of you quilters know that Anne Sutton of famed Bunny Hill Designs (one of our favorite local designers) had a free pattern for a Block of the Month last year. Well I diligently printed them out and kept up and now I have a finished quilt. I admit that I actually forgot about it in December until I saw Debbie printing out her copy and then I busily got to work finishing it. Well I have it now and I put all the embellishments on and voila! Enjoy.

Happy New Year!

I hope all my family and friends had a wonderful holiday and great new year. We got all our decorations put away and then I left for the weekend to spend time in Monterey on my annual quilting retreat. I had a great time. Laughed alot, didn't sleep much and quilted a ton! Here is a picture of my finished mystery quilt and some of the scenery from our hotel. I love the Beach Resort in Monterey. It is so quiet and right on the water. I definitely got my wave therapy.

Below is April and I out taking photos of the sunset.
