10 Minute Hooker and New Quilt

A little sneak peek

of the quilt top Mom
just finished for me
~entirely hand pieced
and hand appliqued~

This is the second time

she's made this quilt
the other belongs to
my sister Judy
and I've always wanted one~

I'm going to hand quilt it
with a wool batting

the back will have some
piecing and applique too

am on vacation next week
so can get it basted
and ready to go
then...
I want to use it this winter

It's an old Red Wagon pattern
from the Snowbound book
*****

This is the first UFO rug

I'll be tackling
ten minutes at a time...
Pay no attention to the

big turkey drawn in the middle

this is really
a cat rug~


It's about time I


picked up the hook again...

hoping this will help

I love the quilt your mom made and the way she did the borders around the appliques. I thought I was bad about redrawing, lol.

Wow, Kelley! I love, love, love this quilt. It's beautiful and your mom did a good job. As for your rug, I can't see enough of the pattern to tell what it is. But I'm glad to hear that you're going to pick up your hooking again.
