My poor daughter and her family are here at my house because their AC broke last night! With the weather being over 100 degrees for the last 2 weeks, having the AC break is not fun! They stayed at their house last night and were absolutely miserable! They came over when the sun came up, because the house was getting even hotter! And they brought the little guinea pig too! LOL! Did I tell you that not only did the AC break, but so did the refrigerator? Now what kind of luck is that?
The newspaper also stated that today, we are having a heat advisory! My daughter and family (3 kids), are renting a house, and of course the Realtor Company are closed for the weekend. They can't call until tomorrow, Monday, to even see if someone is going to come out to fix everything.
Hopefully, everything will be fixed tomorrow. It is really crowded in this house with 5 extra bodies!
Now, onto the quilt I am working on.....Chocolate Dreams. I have posted pictures of the material I used, and block that I made. Now I am going to show you how they are coming together!
I have one more column of blocks to sew together (and I am blogging instead! LOL!) and then I can sew all the columns together and have a quilt top! Woo Hoo!
Okay! Here are the pictures!
Since I don't have have a design wall, I have to hang my blocks/columns over my big window!
She is having a give away drawing at her site, so go there and enter as soon as you can! You are gonna love it if you win!

You might be wondering what this is going to grow up to be. Well, the fabric above is the start of my granddaughters birthday quilt! I am using the pattern from Moda's Swanky.
I am calling it Chocolate Dreams.
The blocks on the top right is the beginning of the quilt.
The picture on the right is the fabric that she and I picked for her quilt. Lots of pink and chocolate colors, with a few other colors mixed in.
Poor girl! She has been waiting for Mema to get busy with this quilt for a long time! I finally had to put off some other projects that I wanted to do and commit myself to her quilt only!
So, what do you think?

How about patterns that use up your stash?
Go to Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara. Just click the title above!
She just posted Peaches and Dreams, and it looks easy and nice!
You can use different colors if you like!
I have spent about an hour here trying to arrange this blog, and I think it is okay for now.
I sure would invite any help out there! let me know what I can do to improve my blog!
This picture is of a quilt I made for a little girl, a neighbor of my daughter's. She was turning 2 years old, and both parents had just lost their jobs, and did not have any money to spare for a birthday gift. My daughter asked me to make a quilt for her so that she would have something to open on her birthday. So, I got busy, and whipped this up the week before her big day. I really think it turned out cute! Sure hope she likes her blankie!
This is my first attempt at blogging, and here's hoping I can do this right!
I started this blog hoping to bring to you some info from other blog sites and into my quilting life. I am going to try to post some of my quilts I have done in the past. This is a test to see if I can get it right!
