Hearts, Meatballs, And Other Stuff

A few months ago I spent a birthday coupon and bought some fabric that seemed like 
just the thing I needed/wanted. It was a fat quarter bundle by Moda...Hearts Content.
It's still in process, but it makes me smile when I'm sewing. 
Don't you just love when fabric does that for you!


I've also managed to finish a quilt top for the EQ7 Row-A-Long in September.
So many amazing rows to choose from...I wanted to make all of them!

Next week I'll be teaching a freezer meal class, so I've been busy getting ready.
I've cooked and frozen bags of chicken, beef, and even some rolled cookies ready to cut and bake.
Seriously, over two hundred meatballs rolled, baked, and in the freezer, too? Yep!


Not only will I be teaching the class, but there will be tons of medical dolls and monsters to stuff
for donations to local hospitals. It's crazy how many of them a few women managed to make!

I've made several of these using the idea over at It's Always Autumn as suggested by the
Primary Children's Hospital. They are so fun, easy, and are open to lots of possibilities.
I'll be having the Monkey Boys make some to use as bean bags, too!


All these projects have gotten me a bit behind on the Snapshot Quilt Along...ugh!
Hopefully, I can catch up soon. I really want to be able to say that for once I finished a quilt along!

I'm off to play with the Monkey Boys now. Yay!

  3. Great minds think alike. Just today I started cutting out my backgrounds for the Heart's Content quilt, though I am using fabric from my stash. I love what Edyta chose, so I am trying to find similar fabrics in my cupboards! Yummy looking meatballs!

  4. I love your heart quilt. It is my favorite heart pattern. Remind me of the pattern my late mother used. Enjoy your freezer meals class.

  5. You certainly are staying very busy. I do love the fabrics in your HeArt quilt and I can see how they make you happy. A Freezer class??? How smart to prep all that food and have it ready for all those times we don't feel like shopping and/or cooking. Cute little felt critters. Summer Smiles Dear...
